Koch Funeral Home invites the public to join them in honoring the over 300 individuals they served in 2021. To remember and memorialize the deceased, on Friday afternoon Koch staff members will place candlelit bags around their lawn along South Atherton Street. Each bag will signify one person that Koch tenderly cared for during the year. The public is encouraged to drive into the parking lot to witness the display, pay homage to the friends and neighbors we’ve lost, see the light of their lives that continues on in this world and send caring thoughts to their loved ones.

WHEN: Friday, December 31, 2021; 5:00 PM to the early morning hours
WHERE: Koch Funeral Home, 2401 S. Atherton Street, State College, PA 16801
