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

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.

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

I'd like to personally thank Christian Funeral Directors for performing the funeral services for my father Ethel Webb November 2003. They are economically priced, compassionate and professional. I am a member of the Church of Christ and proud of the representation of this fine establishment. Thank you so much for making our family feel so relieved at a time of sorrow. Patricia Webb Love
