At such a difficult time, Michael Magner and his staff were exceptional in guiding me through the funeral process with care and compassion.

Our heartfelt thanks to Magner Funeral Home, for their kind, courteous, and personal attention shown to us during a very difficult time with my mother’s recent passing. Having used Magner Funeral Home previously over the years, this was our fourth occasion where my wife, I, and family member(s) met with Mike Magner to complete the funeral arrangements. Mike as always greeted us in a calm professional manner, patiently listened to our thoughts, explained/provided the options, answered many questions, put together a summary with associated costs, and let the family discuss, modify, and make the decisions - much appreciated!!

Although my wife had aged significantly during her last years, she appeared younger than she looked before she became ill, a number of years earlier. She would have smiled, before she died, if she would have been able to see how good she looked after death.

It's hard to compare Joan's (Porter) service to any other because of the Corona Virus Pandemic. Magner's has been a constant in a changing world. I hope to be a client when my time comes.

Everyone there was wonderful!! Melissa is who I dealt with primarily. She really went above and beyond (during the pandemic). She was extremely helpful with every aspect of my Mom's cremation. She is patient, kind, and truly a wonderful human being. I just can't say enough about her and everyone I encountered there.
All were so compassionate as well, even as crazy busy as you all were during this pandemic. Maribeth, you as well!! You were both so kind every step of the way

Melissa was very helpful and caring while helping us plan my father's cremation, etc. It's very helpful to have a place that can help during such a difficult time. Making the plans for my Dad went very smoothly. I can't thank you enough for all of your help.

We've had numerous family services at Magner's and have never been disappointed. They are kind, attentive, and fair. Losing someone is never easy, but Magner's definitely alleviates some of the burden. Will is a hoot, he made planning so much less stressful.

No one looks forward to funeral arrangements. Magner Funeral Home did a wonderful job and covered all of the bases. My Dad served in the military and Magner Funeral Home took care of all of the details for a military service. They served my Dad and family with honor and respect. I would definitely recommend Magner Funeral Home to others in need.

Services for Thomas "Tom" Blankemeier

Mike, Maribeth, and Jay were so professional, kind, and empathetic. When my husband died, Mike even went to my local town hall, picked up the death certificate, and personally delivered it to my home. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Rebecca Blankemeier

For funeral services of Georgette "Georgie" Filsinger:

Very accommodating; I prearranged services - We needed and received prompt, caring response. They made themselves available to all of my questions in a timely manner and I would recommend Magner's to others in need.

Carl T. Filsinger
August 15, 2019

Not thinking clearly, I opted out of a military service that I knew my husband wanted. After crying for a week, my daughter in law called the funeral home and they were happy to help. They got in touch with the Department of Veteran's Affairs - now a granite marker was ordered for my husband and will have a simple ceremony in the future. I am most thankful.

Wanda Santorelli

Mike was very understanding and helpful. He explained everything in great detail and made the process comforting.

Michael Flattery

The funeral home was clean, quiet. The room was set up nicely with chairs, etc. for the service which was attended by 40-50 people. The Director was kind and considerate of our needs. I would recommend the funeral home to others in need.

Three generations of the Magner family have served the funeral needs of my family. They know the cultural, religious, and financial expectations of the community. They offer personalized, professional, and very reassuring service at a time of great need. They anticipated and met every need I had to give my brother a dignified and honorable funeral and graveside service. Highly recommended. Special thanks to Will and Melissa.

We have been using your funeral home for many years no need to go elsewhere because you all are very caring and compassionate and very respectful. You go overboard to do anything and everything you can to help. So wonderful in a family's time of need.

Anna Richter
May 17, 2019

I can't thank the staff at Magner's enough for the wonderful care and attention they gave me and my family during my mothers services. It was seamless (my parents had pre-arranged services) and Melissa took care of all of the details. My only suggestion would be to have families add extra $ when pre-arranging for newspaper, notices, and flowers.

Jolene DeBoer
May 17, 2019

Melissa went out of her way to make the arrangements we asked for. She paid attention to all of the details and followed up on the requests we made. She was easy to work with and the wake for our beloved was conducted flawlessly.

Magner Funeral Home has been used by my family for many years. Mike is the most caring person i have ever met, he is a true professional. I wouldn't even consider using a different funeral home. I lost my dear sweet husband and my mom this year and mike took great care of my family both times.

Gail Meaney
October 29, 2018

Mike Magner was the very best! He took care of me, my father, my two sisters, niece, and "brother" in the most professional and down to earth manner. He helped us in every way to get through this sad time from beginning to end. He even came to the cemetery and stayed with us to talk and ease our pain and help with everything. I can't say enough about Mike and the staff at Magner Funeral Home. They helped give my mom the greatest send-off to Heaven.

Kimi Muro

One of the most difficult times in my life was handled with such professionalism, grace, and compassion, making the passing of my Dad, easier to bear. Thank you to the staff at Magner for their commendable services. A special thank-you to my contact, Sal, who was there every step of the way. Your sincere kindness is exemplified in your work.

The entire Magner staff, and especially our main contact, Melissa, exemplified excellence in every exchange, big or small, at every step of a most difficult time. From the major planning meetings to securing a forgotten item, whether in person, on the phone, or via email, they performed their difficult duties with grace, caring, good humor, and the utmost professionalism.

Jim Mola

I wish to express my gratitude to Magner and their staff. They were wonderful in helping us in giving our stillborn grandson a solemn and dignified goodbye. They could not have been more gracious or compassionate in their dealings with us or the baby's parents. Words cannot express our gratitude to them for their help in this very sad time.
