Funeral Home Reviews
Sergeant Bluff, Iowa

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.

Horrible, devastating experience. Wish they had negative marks for funeral directors.

Richard has been a good friend for a long time. I had 2 sons that passed away (went home). Richard organized two beautiful ceremonies. He went above & beyond to help me through these tragic times. He treated my friends and family with respect & compassion. Thank you for every kindness.

Today is the anniversary of the passing of our father on March 3, 2014. When the mail arrived we had a card from Gary and Patsy Comer, honoring the anniversary of his passing. We remembered how thoughtful and gentle they were to us when we were so vulnerable in our sorrow. The quality of service that Gary provided us when we needed him is extraordinary.
