Effective July 15, 2020
Dear Families of St. Charles and surrounding communities,
The Baue family has served this community for 85 years and we stand ready to help you now. Even prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the safety and well-being of you, your family and your friends has always been of utmost importance to us. We will remain open and our experienced, caring staff will continue assisting families during this critical time.
Our heart goes out to those affected by the recent changes due to coronavirus (COVID-19) and we extend our appreciation to the health care community for all they are doing now to protect us.
We want you to know everything we are doing to keep your safety top of mind while still helping you support friends and family during a time of loss. Please see below for important community updates and more information regarding our locations, livestreaming options and help planning funeral arrangements.
Baue Funeral Homes, Crematory, and Cemetery have adapted our services to follow the guidelines and mandates issued by the Governor of Missouri and the St. Charles County Executive. Effective immediately, all facilities will be open at full capacity with social distancing measures still in place. Masks or facial coverings are required for guests who enter our facilities and will be worn by all staff members.
Visiting a Baue Location
While the COVID-19 virus has required all of us to be more mindful as we go through our regular activities, rest assured that our locations are clean and safe. Our protocols cover everything from handwashing hygiene, cleaning product specifications, ventilation, equipment, required face coverings and area cleaning procedures.
How Baue Helps You Support Friends and Family
Baue has always implemented the latest technologies for the convenience of families we serve. We have made livestreaming and recording of services available to all families at no charge. You may view services at Baue with a closed-circuit private link. You may also support families via guest books and obituaries on our website.
Funerals are important. Recognizing loss is a human instinct and it is important to recognize that we must facilitate beginning the healing process. Please make an extra effort to support those that have lost a loved one during this unusual time. Your support is more important than ever with the added stress of these extraordinary circumstances.
Making Funeral Arrangements
If a death has occurred, or will soon, we are very sorry for your loss. If you are unable to make it to one of our locations due to travel restrictions, health concerns or any other reason, our caring staff can help you accomplish everything virtually. Every situation can and will be accommodated to ensure the arrangements for the care of your loved one and ensure your wishes are followed.
Losing a friend or family member is never easy—and we are very aware that these unsettling times can amplify feelings of grief and anxiety. Please know that we are here for anything else you may need to honor life, support loved ones and begin the healing process.
The safety and well-being of you, your family, and your friends is of the utmost importance to us.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me 636-940-1000.
