Secure Online Simulcast

"Thank you so much. My daughter was so happy that she and her children were able to participate in their aunt's prayer & funeral services online!" ~Y.

Occasionally family members are unable to travel due to poor health, financial restraints, military obligations, or employment issues. In 2007, Evans Funeral Home tackled these issues and became Ohio's first and Norwalk's sole provider in secure online funeral services, which has been a welcomed and appreciated addition.

On– and off–site Advance Funeral planning

As you may know, a death in the family is truly a family crisis. By arranging in advance, your family can feel safe and secure without experiencing what can be overwhelming decisions during a grief–stricken period. Whether we meet you in your home, your care facility, our conference room, or for a cup of coffee, you can plan an affordable funeral service once and for all.

Ongoing Bereavement Aftercare since 2005

The Evans have been Norwalk's resource in complimentary bereavement aftercare since 2005. Because you and your family's well–being is of utmost importance, the Evans' complimentary six–week Serenity Seekers sessions, monthly Healing Hearts group and professional online self–help site were instituted with a goal to return happiness and hope to the heartbroken. Partnering with Stein Hospice in 2005, all sessions are facilitated by Ohio State Licensed Social Workers, giving rise to a privileged and local aftercare program.
