Lyon-Dewitt-Berry Funeral Home
Helping Families Connect, Honor & Remember
2014, a year that will bring some changes at Lyon-DeWitt Funeral Home. While Larry DeWitt has decided to take a less active role to take care of his health and spend more time with family, he will continue to be available to serve the families that have come to trust him over the years. He has left the business in the hands of his employees under the direction of new owners, Daryl and Sharon Berry. While you will undoubtedly see some changes, such as this newly redesigned website, our goal to serve the families of this area in the same manner we would like to be treated ourselves, will continue.
We offer unique opportunities for families to create healing moments after loss. Our experience, coupled with our perspective on the importance of ceremony, will help you discover ways to pay tribute. Whether traditional or unique, these tributes allow us to love, laugh, and live well again.

New Opportunities to make life saving blood donations in Campbellsville. Either Blood Platelets or Double Red Cell donations will be accepted. Central Kentucky Blood Center's Mobile unit will be at the parking lot of Lyon-DeWitt-Berry Funeral Home on the afternoon of April 22nd from noon until 5:30 p.m. Platelets aid in the clotting process. Like band-aids for the body, platelets are needed to prevent bleeding. They benefit patients, like those who develop bleeding disorders from leukemia and other forms of cancer. It is vital that platelet donations remain consistent and robust, as platelets must be transfused within five days of a donation. An automated platelet pheresis donation uses specially-designed equipment that separates platelets from the blood and then returns the rest of the blood back to the donor. Some donors are able to give more than one platelet product at a time--and can provide up to 18 times the amount of platelets that can be retrieved from a whole blood donor. Platelet pheresis takes longer than a traditional whole blood donation, anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the donor. Red blood cells, which carry oxygen to all parts of the body, comprise 40-50 percent of blood volume and are the most commonly transfused blood product. They are used to treat anemia, for surgical operations and to replace blood lost due to trauma resulting from accidents or injuries. A double red cell donation is an automated process that allows the donor to give two units of red blood cells in one visit. In this two-step process, two units of red cells are collected from the donor and other blood components like plasma are returned to the donor. A double red cell donation takes 30 to 40 minutes; the entire visit takes about an hour and 15 minutes, a bit longer than a whole blood donation. Appointments are required.
