As an unwavering steward of our community, Hartzler-Gutermuth-Inman Funeral Home is humbled to care for those who have died while also caring for those who mourn. Our responsibility in providing care at times demands that we make decisions and implement practices, while confusing and potentially difficult, that are made for the greater good of public health and welfare.
In practice as licensed Indiana funeral directors and funeral homes, the protection of public welfare and health, along with the prevention in spread of infectious disease, is part of our fundamental duty of care and legal responsibility, Indiana Code 25-15-2-17 (7)
With this in mind and the public welfare and reverent care at the heart of our mission, Hartzler-Gutermuth-Inman Funeral Home is committed to strictly following all federal, state and local mandates in suppressing the spread of COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus. While restrictive to public gatherings and events, these mandates are for the greater good of our community and nation.
We are living in unprecedented and extraordinary times, filled with anxiety and uncertainty; we are sensitive that death is never easy but most especially during times of national emergency when such restrictions may be in place. Amid these uncontrollable circumstances, Hartzler-Gutermuth-Inman Funeral Home remains committed to you and your family while caring for your loved one.
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.
