Responsibly Serving Local Families
During the COVID-19 Crisis

At Church Funeral Services, we want you to know we are continuing to serve local families while steadfastly following state and local requirements to ensure everyone's health and safety.

Due to social distancing conditions and CDC restrictions on large in-person gatherings, some of our services are modified at this time; to learn about the options currently available to local families, contact us at (225) 644-9683.

As we continue to serve the community, safety remains our top priority. Along with the meticulous standards for hygiene we have always maintained, we are currently following additional cleaning protocols to ensure a safe environment for both families and staff. We must implement some new guidelines to be able to reach this goal. These new guidelines are intended for the protection of everyone:

  • Funeral arrangements by phone, email or fax is preferred. For those families that would prefer making arrangements in person with a funeral director at one of our 3 locations will be limited to Only the Legal next of kin at the arrangement conference. Everyone else can attend via cell phone. Clothing for the deceased must be placed inside a closed bag.
  • Certified Death Certificates: Can be mailed to designated person or only 1 designated person will be allowed to come to our office to pick them up.
  • Facetime or photo identification is preferred for the identification of Remains before cremation or immediate burial at the cemetery. If identification is done in person, only the legal next of kin will be allowed to view the deceased and can do a group facetime with the rest of the family. 15 minute time limit.
  • For funeral services or cremation services we will be following all guidelines established and set forth by the CDC, NFDA, Government Agencies, Church Regulations and Cemetery Guidelines.
  • To receive the cremated remains of a loved one: Only the person that is listed on the Cremation Authorization may come to receive the remains, unless we receive verbal permission from the legal Next of Kin to release to someone else.

Nicholas E. Meyer “Nick” (or “Nicky,” as many family members called him) was a “bayou rat.” He was born in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans and enjoyed a wonderful extended family who spent much of their time in the marshes and bayous of St. Bernard Parish. Nick loved to hunt, fish, and enjoy the outdoors. Nick joined the Air Force National Guard in 1965. He served six years at Alvin Callender Field in New Orleans. He met the love of his life, Phyllis, on a New Year’s Eve blind date. It must have been a meeting aligned by the stars for they married exactly one year later the following New Year’s Eve. He was proud that they recently celebrated their forty-ninth anniversary. Nick opened a small printing business that later transitioned into P & N Promos. As a businessperson, he has been actively involved in the community. His current arid past memberships include, Cortana and St. Bernard Kiwanis Clubs, East Ascension and St. Bernard Rotary Clubs, MOSS, Thebians, Tip Masters, Ascension and St. Bernard Chambers of Commerce. He has served these organizations with distinction and has been recognized with numerous citations. Nick has two daughters, Stacy Thrower who with husband Michael Thrower, currently of Chapel Hill, N.C., and Jessica Meyer, currently of Washington D.C. Nick was very proud of his wonderful grandchildren Nicholas Thrower, Aurora Badeaux, Joseph Thrower, Thomas Thrower, and Mallory Thrower. Nick was the son of Barbara Ann Federico Meyer and Otto Meyer of New Orleans, both predeceased. He leaves behind the fathers of his grandchildren, Mike Thrower, and Corey Badeaux, both of which he loved to the fullest. He leaves also brother Louis Flair and numerous cousins and close friends. A ceremony celebrating the life of Nick will be 1 pm Saturday January 18, 2020 at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church Prairieville. Arrangements with Church Funeral Services & Crematory
