Our experience has been nothing but positive. As we live a good distance away, Magner Funeral home facilitated all arrangements for our family by email and phone. It has been a great relief during this time to have someone ease our burden by dealing with all the details involved.

Karen Bixby
March 15, 2022

We've been going to Magner for decades as our large family has always used Magner for wakes and funerals. Our experience with the death of our mother sixteen years ago and very recently of our father, we automatically chose Magner and nothing could have been made easier in a very difficult time. Jay Magner made every single aspect of planning for our Dad's service simple for us and he knew enough about a military service that he had all of that taken care of as well. During a very sad and emotional time I can't think of a better person than Jay Magner to help one get through it all.

Theresa Walsh
July 20, 2021

Magner Funeral Home are so professional but also intensely caring in a personal way - taking the time to help ease your loss at such a difficult time. My aunt and uncle both pre-arranged their funerals because they trusted in Magner Funeral Home Director, Jay Magner to care for their final wishes. He did so beautifully and was exceptional in handling all the details. Both Jay and the entire staff are wonderful in helping to alleviate any anxiety and stress and provide the best service possible. They are by far the best in the services that they provide and in the caring that they have for their clients - and for that my family thanks you so very much.

Janet Smith
June 27, 2021

It was a very positive experience. You helped us deal with the very sad loss of my Aunt and also last year with my Uncle. You were compassionate, thoughtful and your expertise was excellent. At times of loss you provided the comfort we truly needed and for that we are grateful. Whoever uses your services at their difficult time will be very thankful that they did. My family felt having Magner by our side to guide us through dealing with our loss helped us make the best possible decisions in handling our grief. You handled our aunt and uncles pre-arranged planning of their funerals and they knew they could trust you to honor their final wishes. You showed us you cared and completely earned our trust and respect as well that they had for you. And for that - my family thanks your family.

It isn't fair to answer these questions because my mom died during Covid bull ****. She did not get the wake and funeral that she intended and prepaid for. also, the increase in fees just over a year was ridiculous. There was NO covid on her death certificate, she was in a room with another patient right up until the time of her passing.

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!!

Marie Patchen
July 24, 2020

It was a pleasure working with Michael Magner to initiate and plan all details for my mom's funeral. Although I felt awkward planning ahead, while my mom was still living, Michael's professionalism and good nature allowed for comfortable conversation while developing the necessary course of action. Michael went so far as to help secure a wonderful resource to create my mom's headstone and worked well within my budget to secure a handsome casket. The Magner Family was dedicated to customer service and, even when conversing by phone, presented genuine concern and kindess. They went so far as to find pallbearerers to carry the casket from hearse to grave, which was quite a feat in these times of Covid-19, when no more than five mourners were allowed to attend the funeral in person. Magner Funeral Home is a perfect representation of high standards, professionalism, human kindness and genuine concern. I recommend them without reservation.

Eric Fischman

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.

Margaret Incerto

My wife died at Regional Hospice after a 10 day stay, 4 months after being diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. At her request there was no funeral or burial. Rather she was cremated & her ashes returned to me. The people at Magner were totally understanding, sympathetic & acceded to my requests. They picked her body up in Danbury, had her cremated & returned her ashes along with death certificates & other necessary paperwork to me in a timely manner. This was a seamless process at a difficult time for me. The several people I dealt with were so very nice & compassionate. I highly recommend Magner when ever funeral arrangements are needed.

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

Eileen Ciarletto
April 9, 2020

When my husband died suddenly, my world was turned upside down. There were so many details to deal with all while I was reeling emotionally. That's where the Magners stepped in. Mike, Marybeth, Jay and the entire team treated me and my family as if we were theirs. Mike walked us through all we needed to know, the decisions that needed to be made, with a kind heart, patience and a guiding hand. He even followed up months later. I can not imagine what that time would have been like without them. We will be forever grateful!

Rebecca Surran

Our family has trusted Magner Funeral Home through three generations. The service has always been professional, courteous, and caring. Recently, Magner managed my brother's open casket viewing, his funeral, and the graveside service, all in a very dignified manner. They honored who he was. Melissa and Will were always available to answer questions, make suggestions, and address our concerns in every way possible. And they are very nice people, besides. Highly recommended for integrity, competence and service.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Valerie Wyman

The people at Magner Funeral home couldn't have been more respectful of my mother and our family. From the two people who came to my home to each person who was with us during the process, I couldn't ask for a more dignified treatment of my beloved mother. Sal, who handled most of the arrangements, was extremely polite and professional. He managed to capture my mother's beauty, elegance and style. He showed genuine yet humble pride when I commented on this fact. He made me feel really good about choosing Magner and I thank him and the staff for helping bring Mom to the dignified end she deserved.

Celeste Burton

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

Recently I had an experience with Magner Funeral Home. And Melissa was a great help to me. This was my first time I had to do everything on my own. My mother had passed away suddenly and it was time for me to take the reins. Melissa was there for me. She helped me through everything I needed to do. Both my father and step-father were also laid out at Magner's and again the staff there were very helpful. So I want to thank Magner for their help again Lynn Torre.

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.

Diane Annunziata

Today I was fortunate enough to speak with Michael Magner on the phone about my aunt who recently passed away. Michael helped me place an obituary in the Norwalk Hour. While this in and amongst itself may not be out of the ordinary, my circumstances and his response to my situation certainly were. He spent a very generous amount of time assisting me and was compassionate with his every word. I cannot express enough gratitude for his kindness and I thoroughly recommend his services. Thank you for being there for me.
