Robyn was extremely professional and compassionate while leading our family through all the necessary arrangements and details for preparation of our mom's funeral. Her patience was greatly appreciated! She went above and beyond to ensure that our experience of placing our mom to rest was a seamless experience as we were grieving our loss. Thank you, Robyn Deterling and staff for your genuine care & compassion.

Andrea Egbert was superb. From sending me a list of places nearby to sitting and talking with my bereaved father she was extraordinarily nice and accommodating. Funeral planning can be overwhelming and draining. Newcomer was extremely accommodating. They were not pushy with the most expensive products and they went out of their way in welcoming and making sure our needs were met. Emotions can run high at a funeral and the people at Newcomer are true professionals who will treat you with dignity and respect.
