PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE SINCE 1935

The staff of Pyatt Funeral Home would like to assure the families we serve that we are constantly monitoring all updates from the Illinois Dept. of Public Health and the CDC regarding the Coronavirus.  We are also adhering to funeral industry recommendations from both the Illinois Funeral Director Association and the National Funeral Directors Association.

Our goal is to be able to provide our families with a dignified and respectful funeral service that celebrates the life of their loved ones while keeping our families safe.  Our funeral home staff will continue to meet with our families, in person or over the phone, and plan funeral services based on the family’s wishes while  considering the latest recommendations and mandates from health care agencies.

If you have questions, please call the funeral home and we will discuss any and all concerns you may have.  Under all circumstances, we are here to serve you.

Because the families we serve are strong, hardworking, sensible and resilient, we all will get through this together with the help of one another.

The families and staff of Pyatt Funeral Homes proudly serve the communities of Pinckneyville, DuQuoin, Coulterville, Oakdale, Illinois and surrounding areas with caring and dignified funeral and cremation services for over 80 years. We are sensitive to your needs from the first contact until long after the funeral is over.

We welcome you to our website and encourage you to browse the many offerings and information available here. Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you have.
