Spence Funeral Services joins Lancaster County and the region in celebrating the move from the most restrictive red phase of the Commonwealth’s response to the novel coronavirus to more moderate yellow phase. We have appreciated everyone that has made sacrifices during this difficult time to protect the precious health and lives of others and themselves. We continue to support the efforts of all essential workers providing our nation with health care, sanitation, food, protection, and other necessary goods and services. We are also grateful to those working tirelessly to discover a vaccine and treatment for this illness. Most importantly, we acknowledge the power of an Almighty God who loves all of His creation beyond imagination.
Beginning Monday, June 8, 2020, our office has reopened during weekday business hours for walk-in appointments. Individuals will be greeted by a care team member wearing a mask. Visitors are encouraged to return the same respect.
Spence Funeral Services will be following the CDC and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania restrictions and guidelines. The size of gatherings will be increased from the previous limit of 10 people to now 25 people with social distancing encouraged and expected.
We will continue to offer virtual alternatives to in-person contact and funerals. Meetings to prearrange or arrange funerals may be in person, on the telephone, by email, Zoom meeting, or a combination of any of these. Funeral and memorial services are encouraged up to the number of those permitted to gather. We have the ability to live stream and webcast all services, indoors and outdoors.
Spence Funeral Services understands the importance of the need to gather and feel the support of others following the death of a loved one. By observing the guidelines now, we hope that it will be safe to gather in larger groups soon.
