The service we received from Dengel & Son Mortuary has always been considerate, efficient and sensitive to my family's needs and desires. Everyone on the staff is very helpful and makes you feel like you're being taken care of by someone who cares. They reliably take care of the matters with which you entrust them and go out of their way to set up your services just as you want them. It's great to have someone who really knows what they're doing to help take care of things during these hard times. We really appreciate it! Sharon Ross and family

I can't thank the staff at Dengel & Sons for their kindness and care in performing my dad's service. Many of our out of town family commented on the beautiful service and presentation. My family has been using Dengel & Sons since the 1940's and I don't think we could find a better funeral home for helping us through a most difficult time . John L. Stottlemire

Since 1982, the NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Award has been a hallmark for those funeral homes that are committed to providing exceptional service to grieving families and the community, while adhering to the highest ethical and professional standards. Each year, only two percent of funeral homes earn the Pursuit of Excellence Award from the National Funeral Directors Association. Dengel & Son Mortuary is one of those firms, having earned the Pursuit of Excellence Award seven times. Families can trust Pursuit of Excellence Award recipients to exceed your expectations – and provide award-winning service – before, during and after the funeral.

When our daughter Alexis was unexpectedly taken, Dengel & Son Mortuary was there for us. They welcomed us with open arms and took the responsibility of helping lay our daughter to rest, personally. They helped to lighten our burden with the sincerity of a loved one and outstanding professionalism. If you ever find yourself in need of mortuary services we highly recommend them and we are confident that they will go above and beyond your expectations, as they did for us.

I couldn't have been more pleased with the service received from the Dengel & Son Mortuary staff. When you have lost a loved one, you need support as you make final arrangements. Of course, having that support from folks in the community who are already your friends, makes it so much easier. Jon Wiggins had great suggestions and made it possible for us to plan a perfect service. Even later, when it was time to design the monument, it never occurred to me to go anywhere else. Jon knew us and the things we thought were important. He took our design ideas and worked with us getting the best artwork and we were able to create a beautiful stone that truly portrays our life story. Very comforting to know we were able to carry out my husband's wishes.

Thank you to all the staff at Dengel's. Kenny had a beautiful service and we are so grateful. Just saying "thank you" doesn't seem enough. I hope you know how appreciated you really are. Love to you all.

Craig, Jon and their staff have taken care of our family for many years, starting with the passing of our granddaughter. They demonstrated tremendous compassion for our daughter and son-in-law during their time of loss. The love and affection they have shown to Karen and I after the loss of both our sons and, when Karen and I each lost a parent, have comforted us beyond words. To this day, when we see them, they continue to make us feel as if we are part of their family. They have been wonderful from the time of death until the final closing of the grave sites. Words can not express our gratitude for Dengel & Son.

Steve and Karen

The Dengel and Son Mortuary Family has been an important facet to our family for decades. For years their ability to provide comfort and guidance during a time when decision making is difficult has always been second to none. Most recently, when suffering the loss of our children, I was so humbled by the entire staff. Each and every one of them went over and above all expectations I had. Our family has been truly blessed to have Dengel and Son Mortuary and their staff to rely on. We just can't thank them enough for all they do!

To the staff at Dengel & Son, There are no words to adequately express how thankful I am for the level of care we received. You have top notch respect, compassion, kindness, words of comfort, and so much more. We felt like your top priority was to give my dad the respect he deserved, take care of him and provide peace and comfort for our family. That is what you did.
