Welcome to Beaty Funeral Home
The importance of having a funeral to honor the deceased and giving loved ones an opportunity to celebrate that life and begin to grieve is unquestioned. While Beaty Funeral Home is deeply committed to promoting the value of a funeral, the unprecedented novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic requires us to balance our long-held values with the need to: flatten the curve of the pandemic; protect the health of attendees, funeral home staff and clergy/celebrant; and reduce the potential for community spread and mass-fatalities. Therefore, in response to CDC recommendations and Executive Orders from the Governor of Texas, Beaty Funeral Home will limit the size of services to no more than 10 of the decedent’s next-of-kin until further notice.
In light of the rising rate of infection and increasing deaths, we believe this is necessary to prevent community spread of and deaths due to COVID-19. Beaty Funeral Home recognizes this limit will be very difficult for families who are grieving the death of a loved one but ask for their understanding during this challenging time. Our staff will continue to do all they can to help families understand the options they have for commemorating the life of a loved one in a manner that is safe for everyone involved. We are recommending services be held at the grave site whenever possible; however, the nature of the disposition, such cremation, may mean a service in the funeral home is more appropriate.
To keep families and funeral home staff safe, Beaty Funeral Home will begin utilizing technology, such as video conferencing, for making funeral arrangements in lieu of an in-person arrangement conference. Tools such as webcasting or livestreaming can be used to broadcast funeral or memorial services to family and friends who are unable to attend a service.
Effective April 2, 2020, we will be closed to walk-in business. As always, you will be able to reach us by phone 24 hours a day.
Thank you for your understanding and please stay healthy and safe…
The Beaty Funeral Home Family
