Welcome to Metcalf Funeral Home



Metcalf Funeral Home is committed to the safety of our staff, our families, and our community. Therefore all persons entering our facilities must wear a mask and practice careful social distancing. We thank you for your willingness to observe these guidelines as we continue to honor and celebrate the lives of those we love in meaningful ways. If you have any questions about the health measures we are taking to avoid contributing to the spread of COVID-19, please call us at 402-474-6161


We are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization’s statements regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and following guidelines from these agencies and our local health departments.

We sincerely encourage each person to make your decision whether to attend a service or visitation based on the best interest of your health and that of your community.

·         Metcalf will comply with the CDC recommendation limiting gathering size.

·         Visitors are required to wear a mask and are asked to use sanitizing supplies (e.g., hand sanitizer) provided in the public areas.

·         Visitors are asked to implement and observe social distancing measures and maintain personal hygiene.

·         Eye contact, loving words, and a warm smile can be as meaningful as a traditional handshake or hug.

·         Visitors who have recently traveled out of the country are asked to forgo the visitation.

·         Visitors who live with someone exhibiting symptoms or who are exhibiting symptoms themselves are asked to forgo the visitation. Symptoms include:

·         Fever

Visitors who are at high risk, such as vulnerable seniors or those with significant underlying conditions, are asked to forgo the visitation.

·         All visitors are asked to generally minimize person-to-person contact, practice good hygiene, and minimize touching commonly contacted surfaces.

Our Mission

For over 50 years, Metcalf Funeral Home has been guided by the values instilled in us by our founder, Robert Metcalf. Bob began his career as a funeral director with Roper & Sons before founding Metcalf Funeral Home in 1961. Metcalf operated Metcalf Funeral Home as a privately-held family business until its sale to Prime Successions, a national funeral home chain in 1992. In early 2004, Metcalf Funeral Home returned to local ownership when it became part of the Roper & Sons family, joining two of the oldest names in the Lincoln funeral home community.  At Metcalf Funeral Home, we are here for you in service, and as friends and neighbors.  Remembering warms our hearts and helps us to feel better -even in the midst of a heart-rending loss. It reminds us to celebrate the life lived, not the heartbreak of a life lost.

Metcalf Funeral Home offers you a wide variety of choices when it comes to making funeral arrangements. Whether you are planning a traditional funeral, or a memorial tribute at a later time, our compassionate staff is here to help you. Our mission is to answer your questions, assist you in designing a personalized service that honors the memory of your loved one, and oversee every detail along the way..
