Bocken Funeral Home is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace for our valued staff and helping the community we serve to do the same. We have been closely monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak according to the guidelines and recommendations of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). We want to share with you the actions we are taking to help protect our staff and the families we serve. Our staff has been trained to follow the public health authorities’ guidance regarding hygiene and personal travel, and we’ve reinforced existing policy encouraging staff who exhibit flu-like symptoms to stay home and consult with a medical professional. We have also posted signage on doors and within our location advising visitors to make responsible decisions about attending services in person if they feel symptomatic. • We want you to know that we are open and available to help you and that we still respond to calls when a death occurs. • We would ask that you call ahead as our office hours may vary during this time but be assured our phones are answered 24/7. • We can make arrangements by phone if that makes you more comfortable. • We offer live streaming services, if travel or other concerns prevent anyone from being able to attend services. • We have limited the size of gatherings and our coffee room will remain closed to guest. • Although service options in the immediate future may be severely limited due to these public health-related mandates, we will diligently work with you to find appropriate options and alternatives for your immediate needs within the current restrictions and assist in planning for future public memorial events when circumstances have improved.
We hold sacred the trust you have placed in us and are truly humbled that you find our family worthy of caring for your family at such an important time. We will continue to closely monitor the situation and take actions necessary to help keep our staff and our community safe while providing the services you need during this difficult time.
On behalf of the Samardzich family we are so pleased with all the kind professional services provided by Mr. Corona and staff at the Bocken funeral home. All preparations and consultation was so compassionate and helpful. Mom lived to be 90 and we know that the Bocken Funeral home is an institution that has served the Calumet region for decades. We knew when the time came for Mom that the Bocken Funeral home would be our choice to honor the passing of our Mother. Mr Corona thanks again for your professional services. Your demeanor is kind and patient, professional, and not pressuring at all. You and your staff are a blessing to the entire community.
