To the families we serve,
Larkin Mortuaries and Cemeteries are proud and honored to be assisting families and
friends with their loss for the past 135 years. Given the reality of the COVID-19
pandemic, it is important for you to know that we as funeral directors are taking
precautions to limit exposure to the coronavirus. As we have always done, we are still
operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week making certain that those entrusted to our
care and the families we serve are receiving uninterrupted service and attention.
In the last days and weeks, the Larkin management have been in regular contact with numerous state and federal agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control, National Funeral Directors Association and the Salt Lake County Health Department. Our continuing goal is ensuring the health and safety of the public and that the information we receive is as current and accurate as possible. These are just some of the changes we are implementing:
- We are sanitizing our facilities several times daily
- We are asking staff to stay home when possible
- We are encouraging arrangements by phone and email
- We are limiting the gathering size of our arrangement conferences, services and gravesides to meet the state and federal mandates
That said, people will still be passing away and families will want to say goodbye. We still have a myriad of options. Your funeral director will explain ways that you can memorialize your loved one in a meaningful way.
If you are experiencing a cough, fever, or shortness of breath, we encourage you to not attend funeral services. Reach out to the Larkin location handling services and we will be willing to share your sympathies with the family of the deceased and they may also offer some other options to let the bereaved know that you support and care for them during this difficult time. Notes of sympathy may also be left on our website for the family to see. Every obituary on our website allows for online condolences.

During one of life’s most difficult moments, you deserve the utmost respect, kindness, care, and guidance. Six generations of Larkins have been devoted to serving Utah families in their time of need, and that unique experience enables us to guide you in preparing services for your loved one with consideration and respect.

Creating a funeral service to properly honor your loved one is no small task, and our attentive staff will guide you through each step with empathy and reverence, helping you plan a program that will convey the perfect tone.
Empathy and support are critical after a loved one passes on, and the Larkin Mortuary staff understands that the funeral is only a small part of the healing process.
