COVID-19 Information

from Greg and Suzi Karvonen

OUR #1 PRIORITY IS SERVING OUR FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES

We at Karvonen Funeral Home are here to assist those in need during such a critical time as this. Our primary intention is to remain focused on the general well-being of our fellow community members and to serve the families we are privileged to walk beside with the care and compassion they nee

We are taking extra precautions to keep visitors and staff safe while in our facilities including cleaning and sanitizing routinely, offering hand sanitizer to our visitors and gently reminding those who are unwell or at high risk to please stay home for the safety of everyone.

Those who have recently lost a loved one and are on the grief journey during an already difficult time may feel greater amounts of seclusion, confusion or loneliness. We encourage you to reach out to those grieving in any way possible to provide comfort and support.

We would like to extend our appreciation for your trust and confidence in us and the services we provide. During this time, we will continue to guide families so that they may safely honor the life of their loved one in the most meaningful and personal way, while abiding by guidelines provided by public health officials. Depending on the family’s preference, their loved one can safely be embalmed or cremated. We will work with each family to decide what is in everyone’s best interest regarding their loved one’s services.

We continue to look to our professional trade association: National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), Minnesota Funeral Directors Association (MFDA) and the Center of Disease Control (CDC), for guidance surrounding funeral service and how it correlates to the COVID-19 pandemic and will provide updates and information as the conditions around us change.

If there are any questions or concerns, you can call us at: 218-631-4007 or email us at info@karvonenfuneralhome.com.
