Bud and Susan are both caring people and work with you to give the best service possible . Our family has chosen them for two previous funeral services and the latest was on Saturday the 19th for a Memorial service for my daughter Brenda Mullins Moore. Highly recommend them to anyone needing their service's.

Owens Funeral Home owner Mike Owens is a very clever man who gains a persons CONFIDENCE, then secretly changes the deal giving himself great advantage. If you must deal with him hire a good probate attorney, if not go to a different funeral home. Be careful he owns three in Alexandria and one in Summitville plus the Alexandria grave yard. I found him to be extremely dishonest and manipulative. I lost several thousand dollars.

On 10/18/2013 I gave a very strong negative review, As a result of the situation of not having ownership of my funeral policy I traveled from California to Indiana and staged a protest and picket in front of Owens Funeral Home, After three days Mike Owens came out and we had a 45 min conversation, We discovered we had both been deceived by a Jay Long, the trustee of a estate. Once Mr, Owens realized the truth and the facts he went to work and corrected the problem within one day, He called the insurance company and accomplished having the policy put into my name, I have been restored and made whole. THANK YOU Mike Owens
