Effective May 13, 2021

Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statement regarding COVID-19, “There is currently no known risk associated with being in the same room at a funeral or visitation service with the body of someone who died of COVID-19," the CDC said. 

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to mainly spread from close contact (i.e., within about 6 feet) with a person who is sick with COVID-19.  The virus likely spreads primarily through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory infections spread.  These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.  This type of spread is not a concern after death.

We will continue to be available at anytime to care for families in need.  

It's why we are here...........

Matthew Genereux and his family continues to be the dedicated and familiar face for the community while other local funeral homes have closed, changed ownership or shuffled their supervising management.

At the Longwood Funeral Home & Cremation of Matthew Genereux, family-owned and family-operated means that we are accountable to the families we serve. We hold our standards above all else and not to a board of directors or group of financial investors who only look at the bottom line. We don't operate from corporate offices out of state and your loved one, with whom you entrusted us to care for, rests in our facility, not in one across town.  

In 2008, we constructed a state-of-the-art memorial home facility while offering the most on-site parking in Southern Chester County. Our large chapel, multiple restrooms and lounge area is ADA accessible and can comfortably seat 100 people for services.

We have just completed our interior renovation and expansion project in November of 2019.  With this, we are able to seat 200 people for services, offer memorial life slideshows displayed throughout the funeral home, live stream viewings, funerals and memorial services.  Our audio/visual integrated systems now allows family to mix both our funeral/memorial services with on-line musical selections of THEIR choice.  And yes, ON-SITE parking for 100 cars, the largest in Southern Chester County.

It has been an honor to care for those who have called on us since 2008 and will be here to care for those in the generations to come......
