Spring 2022

A message to the families we serve

As we say goodbye to the Winter season and welcome Spring it's hard to believe how quickly time passes! Over the last two years we've all experienced many changes in our lives; we've missed too many family celebrations and said too many goodbyes. We entered 2021 on a hopeful note expecting that vaccines would bring a quick end to the pandemic. Instead, a year later we are coming to terms with a "new normal" as we learn to live with the precautions necessary to protect the most vulnerable members of our families and community.

At Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle we remain dedicated to providing the highest quality of service to the families who call on us in their time of need -- just as we have for over a century through floods, wars, tornados, epidemics, and other disasters.

We continue to do our best to respond to evolving guidance from the public health authorities. The safety of our staff members and the families we serve is always our top priority. Our offices will still remain open by appointment only. We've also expanded many of our services to encompass on-line and virtual options so that families and friends can be "together" even when they are physically apart. As a reminder, downtown Newark is currently in the midst of several street construction projects; if you need assistance making your way through the various closures and detours, give us a call!

May God bless you and your families as we welcome yet another New Year. Please continue to stay safe,

Jack W. Stickle, II            Kate Stickle Maher            Howard H. Hill
