About Us

FOOD & DRINK AT THE FUNERAL HOME???

At Zwick & Jahn Funeral Homes, we understand the value of providing a comfortable atmosphere at our facilities. To enhance this atmosphere, we created a separate dining area where our professional and compassionate staff seeks to make you as comfortable as possible during your time at the funeral home. They will provide you with plates, cups,bottled water, premium coffee, lemonade, and tea.

One of the values placed on food in our society has been its ability to provide comfort and healing with its aroma during times of stress. Building on this value, we provide fresh baked cookies during your time at the funeral home.

Since 2007, to provide you with more convenience at the funeral home, Zwick & Jahn has offered you the simplicity of not having to leave the funeral home for food or beverage. Have you ever thought of incorporating food and drink into the funeral service? Here are a few of the options available at Zwick & Jahn either before or after the funeral service:

Bring in your own food

We can order pizza for delivery

Your church or friends can provide the food

We can coordinate and help plan the menu for a catered meal

Allow our caring staff to assist in setup and cleanup to complete the hassle-free service provided to each family. Now each family has the convenience of being able to stay at the funeral home and share memories together without the distraction of having to worry about organizing food and refreshments.

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.
