Information Letter –

Memorial Service for Judy Starkloff

Sunday, July 19 at 9:00 am

Please read below for instructions on how to attend.

Due to the recent increase in cases of Covid-19 in Madison County and throughout Alabama, the number of people who will be allowed inside the sanctuary at Messiah Lutheran Church for the memorial service for Judy Starkloff will be very limited.  The Church Council determined that only a small number of people, all wearing masks, can be safely accommodated.  Those people inside the church came from a list supplied by Karl Starkloff.  The Council also stipulated that the service of worship last 30 minutes or less.

All others in the Messiah Lutheran Church community will be able to view the service on a live stream on MLC’s Facebook page.  If you wish to express your condolences to Karl in person, please come to the parking lot of the church and watch the service on your phone.  After the service you may greet Karl when he exits the church while staying near your car.  

All are welcome to attend the reception following the service at Creekside Plantation, 25800 North St, Mooresville, AL 35649 beginning at 11:00 a.m.  This outdoor reception will be held under a large tent.  The reception will include ‘Memories of Judy’ shared by family and friends of the Starkloff’s.   To aid organizers, please RSVP thank you. 

For the protection of everyone, all are asked to wear a mask at the service and the reception.

Because of the Covid-19 and the safety measures being taken to have her service and reception, you must RSVP using the Reception RSVP Form on this page.    Physical distancing measures and protections will be used at both the service and the reception.  A mask will be required at both the church and the reception.  

Both the service and the reception will be live-streamed for anyone who wishes to attend but feels safer viewing it at home.
