Serving Alger County for Five Generations

COVID-19 announcement

Funeral homes across the country deal with crisis and loss every day. We try to make sure each individual family is cared for and have their needs met when they deal with the death of a loved one. That will continue at the Bowerman Funeral Home. Each family has their own needs and although the COVID-19 outbreak has brought unexpected restrictions, we will continue to serve each family while complying with federal, state and local guidance and orders. Along with many funeral homes in Michigan, we have been obtaining our professional guidance through state (Michigan Funeral Directors Association) and national (National Funeral Directors Association) associations who are on top of the quickly changing legislative and scientific environments. Our Alger County families can still choose viewing their deceased loved ones, visitation, funeral ceremonies, memorial services, burial or cremation. Although, we will have limitations and things will be different, we will comply with the rules and we will ask friends and families to also comply. For example, we will monitor numbers and reconfigure seating and standing. We will not have coffee or food allowed in our funeral home during this time. We may be a little bossier and more directive but we will only do that to protect the families we serve and our own families and employees. For five generations, our priority has been to care for the individual needs of grieving families…. that will not change.
