Celebration of Life

Burgess Home Health and Hospice will present their annual Celebration of Life memorial service on Sunday, June 3 at 4 p.m. at the Blencoe United Church of Christ, 126 N. Manley Street, Blencoe, Iowa.

This service is a time of remembrance for anyone who has lost a loved one. It is designed to bring people together who share a common thread – they have all lost someone dear to them, be it a parent, husband, wife, child, grandparent or a friend.

There will be music, scripture, and celebration: a celebration of the loved one’s life. Following the ceremony, light refreshments will be served. Everyone in the community is invited to attend, whether your loss is recent or in the past.

Light supper to follow the service in the church basement. Please note that restrooms at this facility are not handicap accessible. Sanctuary is handicapped accessible.

Area residents are asked to supply pictures of loved ones to be included in a presentation at the service. Photo submissions should be sent by May 30 to Burgess Home Health and Hospice, 1600 Diamond St., Onawa, IA 51040. To ensure a return, please attach your name and address to the back of the photo. If you prefer to email the picture, please send it to ashaffer@burgesshc.org.
