Dear Families of Burlington/West Burlington and surrounding communities,

The Prugh family has served this community for 168 years and we stand ready to help you now. Even prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the safety and well-being of you, your family and your friends has always been of utmost importance to us. We will remain open and our experienced, caring staff will continue assisting families during this critical time.

Our heart goes out to those affected by the recent changes due to coronavirus (COVID-19) and we extend our appreciation to the health care community for all they are doing now to protect us.

Community Updates as of Tuesday, March 17, 2020:

Prugh Funeral Service has adapted our services to follow the guidelines and mandates issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

3/17/20 UPDATE: Current CDC restrictions and the Governor of Iowa state that effective from noon today until March 31,2020, all public gatherings including funeral services will now be limited to immediate family and close friends in groups of fewer than 10 people.

At this time, we know there is a lot of uncertainty. We want you to know that we are continuing to keep your safety a top priority. Below we have outlined the ways that you can continue to support friends and family during their time of loss. Thank you in advance for putting your trust in Prugh Funeral Service.

Visiting the Funeral Home

While the COVID-19 virus has required all of us to be more mindful as we go through our regular activities, rest assured that our locations are clean and safe. We continue to maintain health and safety measures designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, now including COVID-19. Our protocols cover everything from handwashing hygiene, cleaning product specifications, ventilation, equipment and common area cleaning procedures.

Prugh Funeral Service will Help You Support Friends and Family

Prugh Funeral Service has always implemented the latest technologies for the convenience of the families we serve. Recording of services are available to all families at no charge. You may also support families via guest books and obituaries on our website.

Funerals are important. Recognizing loss is a human instinct and we feel it is important to help facilitate the healing process. Please make an extra effort to support those that have lost a loved one during this unusual time. Your support is more important than ever with the added stress of these extraordinary circumstances.

Making Funeral Arrangements

If a death has occurred, or will soon, we are very sorry for your loss. If you are unable to travel due to restrictions, health concerns or any other reason, our caring staff can help you accomplish everything virtually. Every situation can and will be accommodated to ensure the arrangements for the care of your loved one and ensure your wishes are followed.

Thank You

We are your neighbors and friends. We live and work in this community and we take the impact of this pandemic seriously.

Please know that above all, we are committed to the families we serve. We remain focused on maintaining high standards and ethical practices. We will continue to serve the community with health and wellness in mind as we move forward together in the coming weeks and months.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact myself or any member of our staff at 319-752-2828.
