First and foremost, we at Gaffney Funeral Home are ALWAYS available to help you and your family..
The State of Washington has clarified Proclamation 20-25 regarding funerals during Phase II of the reopening plan. Governor Inslee recognizes the critical role that funeral, embalmer and cemetery licensees play during this unprecedented time. Licensed funeral homes and cemeteries may conduct funeral services in a funeral home or graveside under the following conditions:
1. Indoor occupancy is limited to 20 percent or 30 people, whichever is less, if and only if six feet of physical distancing between households can be achieved. Outdoor ceremonies are limited to 30 people, and at least six feet of physical distancing between households is required.
2. Only ceremonies are permitted, and ceremonies must follow all other provisions of the "Religious and Faith-based Organization COVID-19 Requirements."
3. Receptions are prohibited.
PLEASE KNOW: This does not affect our ability to serve families in their time of need. We are allowed to host funeral services following the guidelines in Governor Inslee’s proclamation and recommendations made by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. We remain available by telephone at 253-572-6003 24 hours a day. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Excellent “care” – and that is the perfect word. Your staff was wonderful. Thank you for helping us through a difficult time!
Very helpful! I cannot think of a single thing that you could improve upon! Fantastic service! Thank you so much for your help!
Corey Gaffney and the office staff were awesome! They were familiar with the family and took the time to meet all of our needs. I can’t honestly say I want to work with Gaffney in the future (given the fact that it means a death in the family) but should I have to, I will definitely contact Gaffney Funeral Home.
From the moment you arrived at Franke Tobey Jones I knew our family was in caring hands! The key to your service was offering to do anything – with so many details it can become overwhelming. Thank you so much for everything.
Services went well beyond helpful. Each phase of the funeral was held with grace, dignity and professionalism. Thank you so much for being there for our family.
Your services were absolutely perfect. You have anticipated every need of the family. We now understand why our family has called Gaffney for generations. Thank you!
Your in depth explanations were invaluable to us. Your concern and respect for our mother’s remains was very evident and very much appreciated.
So wonderful to work with and meet the Gaffney team members. You are awesome! Thanks!
Everything from beginning to end was first class. The leaving of a white rose was one of those small touches that made a huge difference to Bobbi and myself. Thank you so much – your organization is first class!
Your entire staff is remarkable. My husband and myself and our pet will all use your services sometime in our future. After seeing how everything was handled with Dad and Mom, I have no concern for our final placements. God bless you all and may your blessings be many for the comfort you give.
Our family has been very grateful for the great and wonderful service received during our beloved sisters’ burial. Corey Gaffney’s explanation of the process has been a tremendous help to me and my sister Julie. To sum it all up: wonderful, beautiful and a job well done. Thank you!
If there is such a thing as a beautiful funeral, my husband George had it! I think Tim Grant was a great person to deal with and I would be glad to tell any of my friends about the very great way he took care of my family.
As always your company did an excellent job with the arrangements and execution of the funeral service for my father. It always amazes me when I see a Gaffney service versus some of the other companies; yours is always a notch above. The personal touch that Tim Grant and your family provides is very appreciated. Thank you.
Gaffney’s services were fantastic and we feel fortunate to be taken under their wings. Gaffney’s caring attitude and sensitivity made our grief quite manageable. We were turned away from another Tacoma area Funeral Home who would not accommodate our religious practices. Gaffney Funeral Home not only understood our grief, but understood our ceremonial issues and completed with dignity what we needed. Gaffney Funeral Home deserves kudos in every area of funeral planning. Corey Gaffney specifically deserves the highest praise.
Thank you to Corey Gaffney for making a difficult time much easier. I regretted my initial decision to not have my mother embalmed and when he told me that it wasn’t too late I felt so much better. Please pass my special thank you to the embalmer who did a beautiful job. When I saw my mother in the casket she looked so beautiful and a feeling of peace came over me that I didn’t have until that moment. Thank you for the kindness and concern shown by everyone we came in contact with.
Everything went professionally and smooth. Now I know that when it is my time to go the Gaffney’s will take excellent care of me! Many thanks.
Thank you for being involved with my family during a very personal and emotional time. We appreciate the Funeral Director and the staff of Gaffney Funeral Home for all their assistance. We are happy with the service we received and we will gladly recommend Gaffney Funeral Home to other family members and friends when the need arises.
My sister and I sat down three years ago to make arrangements for Mom. At that time we were treated very well. We never felt pressured and were able to get good, reliable information. When the time came, Corey Gaffney was there to finalize everything. There were still a lot of decisions to be made but Corey was able to guide us and keep our stress level to a minimum. I just want to say ‘thank you’ to all of you — Corey and Tim. I feel that the funeral for Mom turned out beautiful and was very satisfied that we all did a good job. Thank you!
Gaffney’s is the only choice for a funeral home! Your reputation is accurate. Gaffney’s has traditionally provided professional and quality care. In our case, when you came to take Mom we felt that an extension of the family was there. She would be respected, even in death. The body was prepared beautifully. I have noticed that level of quality at many funerals. I have confidence that if any other concerns came up, support will be provided anytime. Gaffney’s has always represented care, sensitivity and quality. Thank you!
I was completely pleased with your services. Gaffney’s is a wonderful funeral home and all the employees are so kind and caring. Of course everyone knows Gaffney’s is a great and thoughtful and caring place. I could not have begun to do the service without them!
Having experienced the loss of another parent in 2008, we were very disappointed with the other funeral home we selected. I wish we had gone to Gaffney’s then! What a professional group of people you are and my entire family would like to thank you for your excellent service. It was 100% better than our experience elsewhere!
From the attention to detail, availability and patience to the pre-paid envelope provided with the invoice, your company and staff have been top notch the whole way.
Extremely pleased with all levels of your service – it was most reassuring to know that funeral arrangements were in such good hands. Quality, professionalism, attention to detail, compassion and follow-through are just a few of the high points of your service. Thanks to all of your staff! Really loved the website too!
From the initial phone call to the service at the cemetery, everything was handled with professionalism, competence and sensitivity. I am extremely grateful for the personal attention received from Larry Gaffney. Likewise, all staff members that we encountered were equally personable, competent and caring. Thank you.
Everyone at Gaffney Funeral Home treated all of our family with the utmost professionalism and respect. You were kind without being insincere, matter-of-fact about costs without pushing unnecessary expenses and attentive without being overbearing. Thank you so much!
I can’t say enough to express the relationship with Tim Grant and Larry Gaffney. This is my third experience with Gaffney Funeral Home. All arrangements have gone beyond the call of duty. They made themselves part of my family. Thanks for everything.
I feel at home at Gaffney’s. You seem to share in the grief of your customers. Thank you for being there for me
