During the most difficult time in my life, Leavitt was absolutely incredible! John went above and beyond to honor our daughter and make this heart shattering time as easy to get through as possible. They all kept us informed of every step. He did his best to comfort my mom heart and walked us through every step as gently as possible and during our private viewing he added wonderful touches that she would have loved and that we appreciate so much! We cannot thank them enough for their services and their compassion.

Jordan and the whole staff have been so caring and considerate during the process of laying my grandmother to rest. They were more than accommodating, very helpful in selections and decisions, and completely knowledgeable about everything that needed to be done and went above and beyond to take care of everything for us, so we didn't have to think about anything. I HIGHLY recommend Leavitt and their compassionate staff.

My mother passed away a few weeks ago, she had made her funeral arrangements in advance with Leavitt funeral home, so when I called them to see what I needed to do, Brian led me through the process regarding the insurance policy my mother had been paying for her final arrangements. Brian was extremely helpful and knowledgeable which helped me immensely. Mom had requested cremation, so I met with Troy who walked me through the process and took time explaining everything I needed to know. I didn't realize all that was involved but Troy was a major help in getting everything done that I needed, even with the things I didn't know I was going to need. Overall, in a time of grief over losing my mother, the Leavitt funeral home staff made a VERY difficult time in my life so much better than I could ever imagine. They were sympathetic, friendly, and thoroughly helpful, and they always kept me informed of when to expect everything from be completed. Nothing but high praises for Leavitt Funeral home staff.

As you know, no one likes to be at a funeral home for any reason. Losing our mom was extremely hard. Leavitt Funeral Home made that experience a little easier. The entire staff was wonderful, but I must spotlight one person. Our family met with Sean Plant on the day after Mom’s passing. Sean went over and beyond what we expected. Sean was empathetic, sympathetic, caring, and courteous. It was a difficult decision, but Mom didn’t want any kind of fanfare, so we followed her wishes. Our family opted not to go to the cemetery for a memorial. Sean stated to me that he would accompany my mom on her journey to her resting place, from Leavitt Funeral Home to the burial site. He promised me that mom wouldn’t be alone, and he’d be by her side til the end. To me and my sisters that meant the world to us. Sean made the situation a little more bearable. The staff has reached out to us often to make sure we are okay. Other services were offered to assist us through the mourning process. Sometimes speaking to someone other than family can be healing. Leavitt Funeral Home goes over and beyond what is expected. The staff is great, and Sean Plant is exemplary. Thank you. Kathi (Schuler) Rake

Having to plan a funeral while grieving for a loved one is a most difficult task . The staff at Leavitt Funeral Home did an awesome job. Their help, compassion, and attention to detail truly honored our mom. Troy Christman, the funeral director, was very accommodating and professional in handling the funeral . He checked with the family throughout the process to make sure all was going smoothly or to check of our needs. Follow up emails and phone calls, even a couple weeks after, to check on our family and how we were doing, as well as, offering grief counseling were appreciated. The staff at Leavitt’s know how to minister to the family in their grief. Our family would highly recommend Leavitt Funeral Home!

My husband passed away February 5,2023. We did not have burial arrangement but I knew I wanted Leavitt's to take care of Mike. They had taken care if both my parents who had preplanned and were extremely pleased with the care we received for them. With Mike's planning we were professionally walked through the process of the arrangements with compassionate care. All of our wishes were met with understanding attention. My husband looked wonderful as if he were resting peacefully. On the morning of the service I stopped in the office early to get Mikes wedding band. While waiting a group of the staff, probably 5 or 6 gentlemen came to the office to offer condolence. Most if them had remembered my Dad from visiting the funeral home in the past and expressed their good memories of him. That really touched my heart. Leavitt's offers exemplary service. I can not give enough praise for the service we received.

Leavitt funeral services and cremation did a wonderful job for our family when my mother passed away. When you are dealing with a death in the family, they help take a lot of the stress out of it. From the initial planning through the final service, they were there for us. Professional, courteous, and friendly staff that helped us every step of the way. I highly recommend them for all of your funeral and cremation needs.

After the recent loss of our mother, I was tasked with having to put together funeral arrangements without any previous planning. I'll admit that in my distraught state it was an overwhelming concept. I remembered Leavitt Funeral Home handling the funerals of my grandmother and my great aunt years ago, so they were naturally my first phone call. From that moment on, I felt like I had a team of caring friends who were helping me along every step of the way. The funeral was held one week later, and everyone is still commenting on how perfect it was, complete with a dove release to represent her spirit flying free. I cannot thank the staff at Leavitt enough for their kindness and professionalism at a time when I truly needed both. I highly recommend their services in your hour of need.

My father made pre-arrangements with Leavitt Funeral Home. When he passed, Leavitt's took care of everything. From the initial consultation with Sean Plant, to the very end of the service, our every need was taken care of. Sean was thoughtful and very involved. He really took care of us. He didn't even flinch at our morbid humor. The whole staff was great to deal with. Thank you so much for making an experience that no one wants to deal with but in reality is a necessity, easy.

My Mother had pre-arranged her service. Leavitts made the preparations so easy and accommodated our out of town family members and their needs. We used the "Family" center for our luncheon as the church Fellowship Hall was not available. Everything was tastefully done and us five siblings were more than thankful for all of their help. The funeral home has stayed in touch and sincerely wants to aid our mourning time to be less stressful.

Leavitt Funeral home and staff made a very difficult time for our family much better. Stephen, and everyone who helped us, went above and beyond to assist us during our time of need. We could not have gotten through this without the wonderful care and concern from Leavitt’s Funeral Home. They put our needs first and helped us with every aspect of our journey to say goodbye, and to help others say goodbye, to our father. I will never forget their kindness. The value to us was priceless.
