Any major ceremony involves planning-- from births, to weddings, and even funerals. For many years, most people did not begin to actually plan funeral services until a death had occurred or was anticipated. In recent years however, society has begun to plan ahead for everything-- school tuition, first homes, retirement, and death. As a result many people have begun planning ahead for their funeral. (For more information about prearranged funerals click the tab above.)
Planning a funeral at the time of a death or when an illness is terminal is usually handled by the immediate family (i.e. the widow, children, parents, siblings, etc.) along with a funeral director. When the family perceives the need to plan a funeral, they call a funeral service and receive the advice they need.

We at Egan-Ryan Funeral Home feel it is important to update how we are handling services during this CoronaVirus (COVID 19) pandemic.
Our primary concern remains the safety of the families we serve and our staff. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Surgeon General have recommended keeping gatherings to less than 10 persons. As well the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has prohibited mass gatherings of over 50 people. Despite Governor DeWine exempting funeral service, the governor strongly recommends small private funeral/memorials. We agree with the Governor’s perspective and have adopted it as our practice until further notice from these our public health agencies and officials.
Additionally, we ask individuals to call rather than visit unannounced our offices as we will also try to stagger our staffing to adhere best we can to governmental request to enable more social distancing of staff. Always feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. Let us keep all those affected by this pandemic as well as all the critical care individuals and our leaders in our prayers.
