About Us

On October 1,2014, the 14th Northeast Indiana Honor Flight of World War II veterans departed from Ft. Wayne in the early hours and returned later that same day. During their guided tour, these World War II veterans were able to visit the World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Women’s, Lincoln, Navy, and Iwo Jima Memorials along with Arlington National Cemetery. It was at Arlington National Cemetery they were able to witness the retiring of the colors and were also able to place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns…a first for Honor Flight Northeast Indiana.

As one of the Corporate Level Sponsors from northeast Indiana, Zwick & Jahn Funeral Home is proud to have been involved in assisting this worthy organization from its inception. Brittney Gallmeyer, of Zwick & Jahn Funeral Homes, who served as a guardian for this trip, provided the pictures that are shown here and on the Zwick & Jahn Facebook page.

All costs for this trip for WWII veterans are covered…they pay nothing…they have given enough. World War II Veterans costs are funded by community donations from individuals, local businesses, foundations, and other groups who wish to be an important part of honoring these heroes. Each veteran is also escorted by Honor Flight volunteer “guardians,” who pay their own fees in order to honor veterans in a very personal way, escorting them and being there to help as needed throughout the day.

If you know of a World War II Veteran who would be interested in taking one of the Honor Flights, download a Veteran Application Form, or visit hfnei.org, or contact the funeral home.

Planning a Funeral

Pre-Planning

Life Choices

Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.

Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own arrangements.

Please call us at (260) 724-9164 to set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional.

Why Pre-Plan?

Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Lower Costs
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.

Immediate Arrangements

In Time of Need

We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with options as you consider making immediate arrangements.

Please call us at (260) 724-9164 to make arrangements in person with a caring, professional Funeral Director.
