For months we have been anticipating the day when we could offer cremation services to the families we serve. As of July 14, our Crematorium is now in operation. Families cremation needs will now be looked after directly by our staff. This will offer more options for families choosing cremation.
The death of someone special is one of the most difficult times in our lives. We feel truly blessed to be able to help people through this very difficult time in their lives.
It is our hope that everyone who comes through our doors will be helped with the care, compassion, dignity and respect that they deserve. Sometimes life’s difficult moments require a woman’s touch. We will give each family the personal care required to take care of all the details for their loved one’s services.
Our goal is to create a tranquil atmosphere that people will feel comfortable coming in to. We welcome everyone to come in, have a cup of coffee or tea with us, and see our funeral home before a crisis happens. Hopefully this will help to lessen the stress at the time of a death in your family.
We, at Malinoski & Danyluik Funeral Home & Crematorium, are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. We are following all health guidelines set forth by the CDC, Health Canada, Saskatchewan Health, Funeral and Cremation Services of Saskatchewan and the Funeral Services Association of Canada.
Our commitment to the families we serve remains the same. We will continue to serve and assist families with the same dignity and respect as always.
Following regulations and protocol set in place by the Province of Saskatchewan, guidelines for places of worship, under which funeral services fall, may now have 30% capacity of church or facility in which it is held or 150 people, whichever is less. Outdoor gatherings may include up to 150 people, grouped in no more than 30 people per group. Some churches and facilities in Humboldt and the surrounding communities have now opened their doors, however not all have so we would assist you in finding a place that will work for your family. We will work with each family to choose options that will best suit their needs at this time. While the social norm is to gather and support our family, friends and neighbours upon the death of a loved one, the pandemic situation has changed the ways that this can happen. For gatherings of any size, we ask that everyone follow the hygiene practices that have been set out by Saskatchewan Health and to stay home if not feeling well or have recently returned home from another country. With technology today, there are many options to include those who live away or are not able to be present. Friends and family can still be in touch with those that are grieving through phone calls or by leaving messages here on our website on the individual tribute walls.
For the remainder of the summer, we will be keeping our office business hours Monday - Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., however we are available 24/7 for families who are in need of our services. For anyone who wishes to come in for information regarding services we can provide, to transfer preneed policies or set up new preneed arrangements, simply stop in during our regular hours or call us to set up an appointment time that works for you. Arrangement conferences may still be held by phone or via internet if that will make things easier for families. We will be available in person for those who wish to see us directly.
To keep the families we serve as well as our staff and community members safe we have introduced extra disinfection and cleaning throughout the funeral home. We also have masks available for those who wish to use them during their time with us.
As things slowly open up, we are now able to provide more of the services that we normally do and feel grateful for the trust that families place in us.
Our hope is that we will be able to alleviate any extra stress in an already stressful and emotional time.
