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.

DO NOT truths your love ones with Mickeys Funeral Home. Being from out of town I thought they would take good care of my Mother. Was I ever wrong. My Mom had to be sent to another Funeral Home and It took them hours to correct the damages that was done by them. And the Director promised me he would take care of my mother. I figured he would, didnt he have a mom.
