Click on the questions below to reveal each respective answer.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has overwhelmingly engrossed our lives, wherever you go it’s the center of the conversation. We want our community to know that we are keeping abreast of the updates regarding any new information or recommendations about this novel virus. We are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, Maryland Department of Health and Board of Morticians and Funeral Directors regarding the spread of COVID-19. We ask that you familiarize yourself with the recommendations of these entities and that you take reasonable precautions, especially if you are at risk or if your participation in activities at our funeral home could pose a risk to others.

We at Harry H. Witzke's Family Funeral Home are devoted to the safety of our staff and our community. Per Governor Hogan's announcement that gatherings must be limited to 10 people or less, we have decided to modify how we help our families on a day by day basis.

We will be making all arrangements primarily via phone, video chat, and/or email when possible. We are discussing options, such as webcasting, in order to help as much as we can during this time of loss and grief. Our primary goal is to do everything we can to uphold the traditions and values of a funeral or celebration of life within the parameters we have been given. We understand that this situation is difficult and frustrating during an already difficult life event. Please consider scheduling a memorial gathering at a later date when more people are allowed to be with you.

We are all part of wonderful community that is always looking out for each other's wellbeing. We have been consistently dedicated to providing whatever support that can be given time and again under unique, rapidly changing circumstances. We are strong and we will move forward together as we always have.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns via our email,, or by calling us at (410)-465-2848.

Rest assured your safety is our highest priority and we truly appreciate the trust you have placed in our funeral home for over 100 years.

The Witzke Family and Staff
