A message to our families regarding Coronavirus:


At Sanderson Funeral Home, we are taking the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak very seriously, as our top priority is keeping the families we serve and our staff members safe. Our business is still operating as usual, and we’re doing everything we can to keep our facility and equipment clean and sanitized. The National Funeral Directors Association also is giving us further information about how we can prevent the spread of this virus in our community.  We are providing these guidelines for services and visitations:

The kitchen will be available for immediate family only.  Any food brought in must be pre-wrapped in individual servings.  During visitations, please keep physical contact to a minimum.  Wearing a mask is optional unless specified by the family.  Hand sanitizers and masks are available throughout the building.  Our building is sanitized before and after each service and visitation.


We encourage you stay informed about this virus and how to stay safe. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website is a great place to start:
