Important Update Regarding COVID-19

Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service is constantly monitoring the rapid changes of COVID-19 (Corona Virus)

We are following instructions by the Governor of Virginia, The CDC, The National Funeral Directors Association, The Virginia Funeral Directors Association and Regulatory Support Services.

The following outlines the Phase 1 procedure in compliance with the Governor’s current order of 50% capacity.

As of May 15, 2020, Governor Northam has begun to allow some businesses and places of worship and or ceremony to operate at 50% occupancy. We are committed to the families we serve and the communities that support them. We ask that families consider that the type of gatherings they hold to be ever mindful of those who attend, and their health and well-being. We also ask that you refrain from hugging or shaking hands and practice safe social distancing.

What this means for services:

As of May 26, 2020, Governor Northam has put an order in place requiring masks to be worn when in public buildings. In order to protect the vulnerable and high-risk members of the community, it is highly recommended that face masks be worn. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide masks for visitors; please utilize your own. Failure to use a mask while in our establishment will be an assumed release of liability.

All Morrissett Staff will be wearing face masks at all times.

We have placed hand sanitizer and polite reminders throughout the building to assist with cleanliness. If you are not in attendance and would like to pass condolences or have your name added to the guest book, please call us and we will assist or utilize the online condolences at

Once again, we ask you to practice safe social distancing, and to please not attend if you are ill or at high risk.

Families that maybe in need of our services in the coming weeks, please know that we will care for you and your loved ones with the utmost respect and assist you in the options we feel are safe and that comply with the Governor of Virginia’s limitations and the CDC.

This can mean public or private family services. We promise to work with you as families and your comfort level and desires to honor your loved one.

Please be aware that no coffee, cookies, or cups of water will be available to any guest or families. We will have bottled water available at your request.

As we monitor this ever rapidly changing situation, we will continue to provide updates in regard to the measures we are taking. We appreciate the support and kindness shown during this difficult time. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact us at 804-275-7828 or e-mail to

Hugs from the Heart

Hugs from the Heart is a new service we are implementing that will give those not attending the chance to be able to share a token of love and support. Click the link below and leave a message of support that will be handwritten and attached to a white balloon. These balloons will fill our chapel as hugs for the families. They will be able to read your heartfelt messages and hopefully know that many others are there with them in spirit.

Community Events

July 2020

Sock Drive & Sock Hop Wednesday, July 15, 2020 6pm-8pm

Starting in July of 2020 Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service will be collecting new pairs of socks for the homeless in our community and surrounding area. Socks are the number one requested and needed item for those who are homeless. Why are socks so important? For many reasons! Frostbite can occur within 30 minutes or less in cold conditions and in warm conditions; wet socks breed bacteria. When walking barefoot, feet are exposed to possible injury, infection, and pain. This problem is also exacerbated for homeless individuals who are diabetic. Foot health is very important and can be as lifesaving as insulin! One simple blister can lead to infection. We need healthy socks! Join us in reaching our goal of collecting 150 pairs of clean, new socks! Travel size toiletries are also being collected to fill the socks. Donation boxes will be located in the front lobby of the funeral home. Donations will be collected from July through October.

The Sock Hop will be held at the funeral home to encourage donations. A fun filled evening of music and family games. Invitees will be asked to donate a clean, new pair of socks as admission. Snacks will be provided. More information to come!
