We, at Weathers Funeral Home, are humbled to have the opportunity 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 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, Weathers Funeral Home, is committed to strictly following all prevailing 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 extraordinary and unprecedented times, filled with anxiety and uncertainty; we are sensitive that experiencing death is never easy, but most especially during a time of national emergency when such restrictions are in place. Amid these circumstances, we remain committed to you and your family while caring for your loved one.
Service options at this time are limited to no more than ten people. If you choose to attend a visitation or service, you will notice us doing things a little differently. We have everyone’s best interests in mind, while also following the mandates we are operating under.
We appreciate the trust that you have placed in us at this difficult time.

When planning a service, you have many options available to you and we will do all that we can to provide a beautiful and respectful ceremony. No matter your choice, we can offer you a space to join with family and friends in grief, comfort and love. And above all, we will do our utmost to honor your loved one. We will be happy to go over all your options and answer any questions that you may have.
A funeral service is a special time for family and friends to comfort one another, begin to find healing and celebrate a life well lived. Whether you choose burial or cremation, you can hold a funeral service to honor your loved one. We are happy to provide a traditional funeral or something completely unique. Many cultures and religions have special funeral traditions and we will do our best to accommodate your requests. This is a moment for you and your family and we are honored to help you in any way that we can.
Just like a funeral service, a memorial service is a time to remember your loved one. This can be held shortly after death or weeks later, with or without an urn present. What’s important is that it creates a time and a place for family and friends to gather together and support one another, share memories and pay their respects. We can hold a memorial service at our funeral home, the final resting place or at your home.
A casket burial is a traditional service and there are many options you can choose from. We can provide an immediate burial without a public service; a visitation, viewing or wake with a closed or open casket; a funeral service at our funeral home, church or private home and a graveside service at a cemetery. You can choose whether you’d like a public or private service or a combination. It is entirely up to you how you wish to pay your respects.
Cremation has become a popular option for many people because it can be more flexible as to where and when you hold a service. You can have a traditional funeral service before a cremation or a memorial service at any time with or without the urn present. You can keep the urn, scatter the ashes or have the urn buried in a grave or columbarium where we can hold a service. Whether you choose burial or cremation, we’re here to offer you a meaningful ceremony.
