Visitation will be Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at Levander Funeral Home in Albion from 1-8 p.m. In an effort to keep our community safe, we strongly encourage those feeling ill or who are part of an at-risk population (e.g., the elderly or immune-compromised, etc.) to please stay home. In compliance with COVID-19 restrictions set by the CDC, no more than 10 people will be allowed in at one time. In order to accommodate this, we have extended visitation hours and encourage visitors to come throughout the day. During visitation, social distancing methods of no hugging or hand shaking will be practiced.
There will be a private family service with burial to follow at Hope Cemetery at Newman Grove. There will be a Celebration of Life held for Ted at a later date.
