Heath Funeral Chapel earns Selected Independent Membership

Heath Funeral Chapel is dedicated to serving the needs of Lakeland area families every day.

Heath Funeral Chapel recently earned membership in Selected Independent Funeral Homes, an international association of premier, independently-owned and operated funeral homes.


“We are pleased to welcome Heath Funeral Chapel to our association,” said Selected Independent Funeral Homes Executive Director and CEO, Robert J. Paterkiewicz. “Affiliation with Selected Independent Funeral Homes is considered an honor because of the high standards of funeral service that are required to receive an invitation to become a member.”


Founded in 1917 as National Selected Morticians, Selected Independent Funeral Homes is an international association of independent funeral service establishments, which are operated by persons with integrity, good moral character, professional ability of a high level and who are dedicated to the principle that their calling involves special responsibilities to society.


Membership in Selected Independent Funeral Homes is by invitation and is extended only after a thorough review of character, service, performance and facilities. One primary condition of membership is adherence to the association’s “Code of Good Funeral Practice.” The 11 provisions of the Code clearly outline the key principles of honesty, respect and trust that are expected of members. 


“As independently owned and operated firms, our members are truly vested in their communities,” Paterkiewicz said. “Heath Funeral Chapel, like all our members, takes seriously their responsibility and dedication to providing the best possible funeral service to their friends and neighbors.”
