**NEW FUNERAL HOME GUIDANCE**


Effective June 15, 2020, New Funeral Home Guidance has been released, based upon recommendations from the
NH Funeral Directors Association and the Governor's Re-Opening Task Force.  In addition to continual, thorough facility sanitation 
and training for our staff, the following measures are being implemented effective immediately:

  • Funeral Service attendees should be notified/informed that if they have symptoms of COVID-19, they should NOT attend the funeral services for the protection of other attendees and staff.
  • Funeral Service attendees should wear face coverings at all times when inside the funeral establishment.
  • The number of attendees inside a funeral establishment will be limited to 50% or less of an establishment's permitted occupancy 
  • based on New Hampshire's Building & Fire Code.
  • Any waiting/receiving lines inside and outside will have demarcations spacing attendees at least 6 feet apart.  
  • Seating must be arranged at least 6 feet apart with space to allow people to move through without coming into close contact with others.
  • Establish one-way traffic patterns to promote social distancing.
  • Close contact with others (e.g. hugging or hand-shaking) is discouraged.  Condolences should be provided from a distance of at least 6 feet.
  • No food, snacks or drinks are allowed in funeral homes or reception areas.
  • Visitations will be limited to a period of 2 hours in order to allow for appropriate facility sanitizing and cleaning as prescribed by the CDC.

Our History

The Petit Funeral Home of Pembroke was established by Gedeon Petit in 1933.  When his son, Gedeon, Jr. became of age, he attended mortuary school and would dedicate the next 45 years of his life to Funeral Service.  In 1940, he and his wife purchased a Victorian residence at 167 Main Street in Pembroke, which continues to serve the community to this day.  At a young age, Gedeon Jr.'s son, Tom began to assist his father in the operation of the business and in 1978, he purchased the firm after his father's retirement.


Still Oaks Funeral & Memorial Home of Epsom was founded in 2006 in a former church that was constructed in 1980.  No expense was spared in converting the property into a modern, comfortable facility to serve the families of Epsom and the surrounding communities.  In addition, with the opening of the Still Oaks location, families were now given the option to take advantage of our on-site function area for post-service gatherings.

In October of 2016, after more than 38 years of ownership, Tom passed the business on to Katie and Matt Roan, both licensed Funeral Directors, who bring more than 25 years of combined experience to the residents of Suncook Valley and the surrounding areas.
