Needham-Storey-Wampner funeral home has been wonderful and supportive. They were not only supportive during our time of loss but also followed up afterwards also. Not really sure if I've ever even heard of that before, but it was very meaningful to have them reach out to make sure we were doing ok. I couldn't give them a higher recommendation!

They are extremely helpful and patient with you and your family as you make arrangements for your loved one. They don’t push expensive things on you, they show you what they have and let you choose and give advise when asked. Even after the funeral Elizabeth has messaged me saying they’re thinking of us and asked if there was anything they could do for us. They are really caring people who understand this is a very hard time in your life. I recommend them to all who have a loved one that’s passed, you won’t regret it!

They treated the surviving family with respect and comfort during this time of sadness. The presentation video brought out the highlights of my father's life and sweet memories. The services were great. They did a great job on my father's final appearance. After everything was done, they made sure the surviving family was doing OK and offered comfort.

Recently I experienced planning the funeral arrangements for my husband. Since I was taking care of him I thought I should preplan my own as well. The staff at Needham Storey Funeral Services were so wonderful. They had such patience as this was a very difficult time. They answered all my questions and explained everything in great detail. Unfortunately my husband took a turn for the worst. He passed away and more planning had to take place. This time they were dealing with a lot of family members. Once again nothing but patience and understanding. The funeral took place just as I planned and I was so happy because it was such a beautiful service they helped me plan. I am so happy with my decision to see Needham Storey Funeral Services for pre-planning and the ultimate service itself. The other staff was also very helpful. Tish at the front desk was so helpful. A consultant visited me within several days after the burial to provide me information for discussion groups who met to help dealing with grief. I would highly recommend this respected local company in my city for any of these services.

From the beginning of our journey Mick helped our loved one make his funeral plans. Mick's voice was soothing, he answered all the questions with certainty. We felt very comfortable that he took our wishes to heart. When the day came our loved one went home, the staff was caring and respectful guiding us through the "hard part." Taking into consideration our feelings and tears. At the funeral home, we were very happy with the way they took such good care of our loved one's presentation. And the after care of his family. Reaching out to us and asking if there was anything they could do to bring us peace.

They did an absolutely amazing job helping with all of my moms funeral setup. One BIG RECOMMENDATION is to meet with your loved one before their death and plan plan plan! We already planned for a whole package and nearly everything was decided and paid for when the unfortunate time came. It made it way less stressful for our family and this place was awesome from start to finish through the process.

Alan Beck

February 04, 2023

My husband and I are not from the area and felt a little lost when preparing/planning for all after life "duties" if you will.. for my husband's Grandmother. NSW was her first choice as she has been a Marion resident for most of her life and we now know why. They were so helpful and overly attentive to all of our needs. It takes special hearts to be able to carefully guide people through a very trying and expensive, yet necessary process while still remaining sympathetic/empathetic & professional. They made the entire process smooth, even up to setting up plans with the cemetery. The excellent communication between NSW & the cemetery was so comforting and made us feel as if everyone was in the loop of our personal situation and always there for us to over extend any help they could. We can't say enough positive things about every single staff member we encountered. We will recommend NSW to anyone in that area and even surrounding counties. NSW, your hard work, kindness, & compassion does not go unnoticed! We can't thank you enough!

Kelsey Hayes

Best Funeral Services at Needham’s, they provided excellent service during a difficult time. They helped our family make decisions about my mother’s funeral and provided a beautiful space for the memorial service. Their staff was always friendly, compassionate, kind, and professional from start to finish. They handled everything with the sensitivity and ease needed in the difficult area of death. The day we had to go in was a very hard day, but we never felt rushed, prodded, or like it was business as usual. All the logistical items were clear, and they took the time to explain everything in detail. They definitely took our feelings and emotions seriously and that was very much appreciated. Thank you Needham-Storey-Wampner Funeral Home for your hard work & dedication, especially Jason and Elizabeth, as they both have stayed in touch with our family, reaching out and checking in on us.
