We at Jennings Funeral Homes announce a response to the COVID-19 virus. We will continue to serve our families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but our office hours will be by appointment only until further notice. Please feel free to call 931-879-8118 if you have any questions or concerns.
At this time, Governor Bill Lee has issued Executive Order No. 17, the CDC and the Tennessee Funeral Director Association has released guidelines mandating all funeral homes to use the following orders: • Only allow 10 people or less for visitations and services. • For those having a gathering or service, minimize physical contact. • Postponing larger public services for a later date. • Having hand sanitizer readily available for visitors and staff. • Limiting the amount of people who come in to make funeral arrangements and offering to do arrangements remotely if possible.
We know that these changes are not the traditional ceremonies that we are accustomed to, but by working together, we can prevail through this difficult time we are all facing. By making these temporary changes now, we can “flatten the curve” and lessen the effect of this virus on Fentress County.
For those who might be attending these limited visitations and services, for your safety, the orders say no hugs or handshakes. Direct eye contact, loving words, and a warm smile are as meaningful to a family as a traditional handshake or hug. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this time.
We at Jennings Funeral Homes would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our site. We hope you find it useful and return often. Be sure and look at the different sections, they are full of useful and meaningful information. We want to continue to serve you and provide you with the best information available.
The Internet has proved to be a wonderful place to make available local information. You can find up to date information on our current services via our obituaries section. Click on the directions tab for assistance locating our two funeral homes.
