Funeral Home Reviews
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
Horrible, devastating experience. Wish they had negative marks for funeral directors.

Ames, Iowa
My parents passed away recently. We used stevens funeral home both times. For my fathers memorial they rushed us and cut the memorial short by 35 minutes. People showed up after we were rushed out of there... They didnt allow people to get up and speak about my father because they were in such a hurry for us to leave early. We paid ahead of time for burial of the urns... After 3 months there is still no name on the burial site, even though plaques were paid for ahead of time.... Wish we would have gone elsewhere! Very unhappy! Also the building is very small and not well set up to have a funeral.

Just used the services of Woods-Rettig Funeral Home and was very pleased. Durning the planning stages we never felt pressure to "buy up" for items. They covered the details in a thorough, professional and caring manner. My mother looked beautiful, they did an amazing job. The entire experience during a difficult time was outstanding and our family would recommend Woods-Rettig Funeral Home to anyone in need.

In contacting this funeral home with regard to the burial of a Veteran, I found them to be very elusive in providnig information to the point that they did not want the American Legion to attend the burial because "there will not be any services". When I told them we just want to pay our respects regardless of the lack of services, I received the same response - "there are not going to be any services - we just drop him off and the Veterans cemetery buries him at their leisure".
