COVID-19 Information

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 one hundred 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.

Veterans Headstones

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a Government headstone or marker for the unmarked grave of any deceased eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world, regardless of their date of death.   For eligible veterans that died on or after Nov. 1, 1990, VA may also provide a headstone or marker for graves that are already marked with a private headstone or marker. When the grave is already marked, applicants will have the option to apply for either a traditional headstone or marker, or a new device (available spring 2009).  

Flat markers in granite, marble, and bronze and upright headstones in granite and marble are available. The style chosen must be consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial. Niche markers are also available to mark columbaria used for inurnment of cremated remains.

When burial or memorialization is in a national cemetery, state veterans' cemetery, or military post/base cemetery, a headstone or marker will be ordered by the cemetery officials based on inscription information provided by the next of kin or authorized representative.

Spouses and dependents are not eligible for a Government-furnished headstone or marker unless they are buried in a national cemetery, state veteran's cemetery, or military post/base cemetery.

Note: There is no charge for the headstone or marker itself, however arrangements for placing it in a private cemetery are the applicant's responsibility and all setting fees are at private expense.
