COVID-19 Update


A message to our families regarding Coronavirus:


We, at the Martenson Family of Funeral Homes, are as concerned of the Coronavirus as any other business that serves their community on a personal and intimate level.
We have received inquiries of what we are going to do about this health concern.
Our goal and focus has not changed.  We are dedicated to helping members of our community to serve and care for the death of a loved one.
We understand that there are state regulations that have been put in place to restrict public interaction.

Our main concern is to get these families through this difficult time in their life with the compassion and professionalism that we have shown for over 86 years.
We will be considerate of the families need to grieve, while observing the state regulations for our community’s health.

We will continue to help and care for our families during these troubling times.  We are always available to help and answer questions at any time of the day

Martenson COVID 19 Update



The health and well-being of the families we serve, friends, neighbors and staff is our top priority. But we also wanted you to know that you can still have a public visitation and funeral service for your loved one.

Because of the large square footage of Martenson Family of Funeral Homes, we can still host public gatherings at this time.  We also want to assure you that we are complying with state mandated safety regulations to help keep our community safe.

Effective at 12:01 AM, March 24, 2020 and through 11:59 PM, April 30, 2020 the Governor of the State of Michigan has issued EXECUTIVE ORDER No. 2020-21 which is the temporary requirement to suspend activities that are not necessary to sustain or protect life. Within this Executive Order, death care services (funeral and crematory) have been designated as essential to the public health. Therefore, the Martenson family of Funeral Homes will continue to operate.

Although public visitations, funerals and burial services are capped at 50 persons within one space, they may still be held. We also have live-streaming for services for those wishing to have the service on Facebook.

We are following the suggested social distancing guidelines. Food-sharing is being discouraged, so we do ask that you do not bring food.

Of course, if you’d rather wait until this Executive Order is lifted to allow you to have a larger visitation, funeral and burial, we can help you with options for that, as well.

Additionally, you’re always welcome to come in and meet in person. We’ve set up large, private meeting spaces in which the funeral arrangement conference is held. If you to prefer to meet via phone, that is also an option.

Our goal is to work with you during your very difficult time to help you find the most fitting tribute for your loved one. In compliance with this Executive Order, and for the safety of our employees, we will be cutting back on daily staffing hours and only calling our employees in, as needed. Rest assured though, all of our great employees are only a phone call away to help meet your needs. And, our phones are still being answered 24 hours a day.

Every life lived is beautifully unique and should be celebrated in the same way. We are here to help you plan a service that honors your loved one and aids in the process toward healing.
