An important message to the families we serve

As we welcome fall and summer fades away the last few months have certainly passed by quickly. Looking to the autumn season, as students return to school and many are returning to work, we still have the pandemic looming amongst us. We have resumed our livelihoods to a "new normal" and as we all begin to slowly and cautiously participate in more celebrations and events, we will still maintain our vigilance and continue to do our best to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities.

In response to guidance from the health authorities we here at Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral & Cremation Service are doing our best to ensure the protection of our staff members and the families we serve, while fully honoring our commitment to provide the highest standard of dignified funeral service. Our offices will still be open by appointment only and we will no longer require families and friends to wear facial coverings at our facilities. Processing times for many documents may still be slow but we expect this too will return to normal as time goes on.

While we all continue to adapt and respond to the many challenges and changes we face, Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral & Cremation Service remains dedicated to providing quality service to the families who call on us in their time of need - just as it has for over a century through depressions, floods, tornados and other disasters. 

May God bless you and your families. Please continue to stay safe,

Jack W. Stickle, II
