Funeral Home Reviews
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.

Terrible greedy money makers. My 21 yr old daughter died and the only concern was selling us two more plots at discount rate. But better her it now or somebody else could buy it and ur daughter would be by a stranger. They pushed my husband to buy two more plots for our daughters who are young and not know what there future is. I paid for a stone after a year of grief just two weeks ago. I paid up front and did not get a discount as promised. Every question I had as BOB was helping me go over my design was "not a good idea" it STILL is sitting on someone's desk not even ordered! Never ever again. I'm requesting a refund!! They got my 5 thousand and sitting on it!

To the family of Irene Gomsrud: I am saddened to learn of Irene's death. I will miss the visits with her, her smile and happy outlook, and her "Irishness". May all your good memories of her be of comfort and continue to warm your hearts.
