Cherokee Area Service of Remembrance to be held Tuesday, November 30th
For the first time, a Cherokee-area Service of Remembrance will take place as a joint effort by Boothby Funeral Home, Cherokee Regional Hospice, and Greenwood-Schubert Funeral Home. The memorial service will take place at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in Cherokee on Tuesday, November 30, with the program beginning at 6:30pm. Fuller Digital Solutions has offered to live-stream the service for those who are unable to attend in person (https://youtu.be/gXSsFM8J614).
“Coming together for this special celebration will make it easier on families who, in the past, may have had to choose which of our memorial services they were going to attend as a family,” Jennifer Boothby of Boothby Funeral Home stated. “It’s very special for our organizations to come together to support those who have lost their loved ones. With COVID taking the opportunity for in-person memorial services last year, we are all excited to collaborate this year for an in-person service.”
Over the years, Boothby Funeral Home, Cherokee Regional Hospice, and Greenwood-Schubert Funeral Home have all organized their own memorial services. Coming together for a memorial celebration like this is very special for the community and those who have lost loved ones.
“When we first met with the idea of pooling our resources to make a special memorial service, we discussed our past events. While each of us had our own spin on the event, we all agreed that we wanted a wonderful event to celebrate and honor lost loved ones,” Matt Schubert of Greenwood-Schubert Funeral Home stated.
“Each of us had planned a memorial service, created invitations for the families we served throughout the year, and executed great events in the past,” Tonya Oolman of Cherokee Regional Hospice stated, “but joining our forces, we were able to make it even better for everyone.”
Boothby Funeral Home, Cherokee Regional Hospice, and Greenwood-Schubert Funeral Home invite you to help us honor the loved ones we have recently lost. This is a time of remembrance of the lives of our loved ones. This Service of Remembrance will take place on Tuesday, November 30, beginning at 6:30pm at St Paul’s United Methodist Church in Cherokee.
Live-streaming the Service of Remembrance will be provided by Fuller Digital Solutions. The link to watch the service from your computer or smart device will be on the Boothby Funeral Home, Cherokee Regional Hospice, and Greenwood-Schubert Funeral Home websites and Facebook Pages as we approach the event date. Please share this information with other family and friends. Food, drinks, and fellowship will be provided following the memorial service.
