Years ago our family used another funeral home It was ok, I don't find the people as friendly or as professional. Kaniewski's did my mothers funeral 1 1/2 years ago and now my Dad. I found comfort and I never felt rushed going over things. All the people we worked with were very helpful and understanding. Since this was the last thing I did for my parents I wanted it to be done well and is was. I was happy with the funeral-the military honors at the cemetery was very moving. My Dad was a proud veteran and it was nice that it was recognized.
I trust in Kaniewski would not have expected less. Jeff was wonderful to work with and thank you Kenny for getting on one of the calls and saying those few words about Mom that you heard from your friend. Staff all was wonderful. Thank you for honoring all our requests. Bob - makeup was perfect-We came and did Mom's hair and nails.
The staff @ Kaniewski has always been very professional. Everything has always been explained in detail. Nothing has ever been rushed. Everyone has always been very respectful & understanding. The funeral service is conducted with grace & with utmost respect. I appreciate all that Kaniewski has done for me & my family considering my entire family has gone to Kaniewski. The gentlemen that came to pick up my Mom also were very kind & respectful during a very difficult time.
Dear Bob & Family, Thank you so very much for all your help in arranging Dad's funeral services: Bob, for making Dad appear 20 years younger - "He looked beautiful!;" Mike, for all your time and patience in helping with the detailed arrangements; Angie - for answering all of our questions, doing the paperwork, the prayer cards, candles and other miscellaneous duties; Jeff, for the set-up and many other behind-the-scene details. We sincerely appreciate your kindness and caring. Love, Marlene & Family
Jeff Kaniewski & Kaniewski Staff, On behalf of my family and I, we want to thank you for making sure my grandma had such a beautiful service. She would have loved every detail of it. She looked beautiful and we appreciate the time spent from Sherry, Jeff, Bob, Tim, Alexander and all who assisted us. Thank you!
Good afternoon, I've been wanting to reach out to you and let you know how grateful our family was in helping us through the difficult loss of my father. Everyone was friendly, helpful, and the funeral was so beautiful and meaningful including the military honors at the cemetery. I can't say enough how well Dad looked too. Your staff did an outstanding job. Thank you so much! Sue Bowker
Greg, thanks so much for everything. You and your team were amazing and made the last few days everything that my dad would have wanted. Thanks for sticking around and hanging out at MRs too!
We had a perfect celebration for my dad, Stormin' Norman. It went exactly as I wanted it to. Thank you Kaniewski Funeral Home for having him look exactly as we wanted him to.
The Kaniewski family has been taking care of my family for decades. They have always been thoughtful, kind, and offer creative solutions. I always choose them with confidence knowing that everything will be taken care of. What a relief when there are so many other things that require attention.

My mother looked like an angel.
As my father-in-law's POA, I had an extremely tight window of time to "spend down" before he was reviewed for Medicaid. That is also when we learned that we would have to cash surrender his life insurance plan (intended for his funeral). Kaniewski was the only establishment who took my phone call seriously with base price information, etc. without requiring an appointment first. Also, we greatly appreciate their attentiveness to detail and all of our needs.
I would like to thank all of the Kaniewski Funeral Home family. You were all so wonderful to work with. You made this difficult time in our lives easier to handle. You had several of us trying to give direction. Mike had answered or taken care of all of our needs and requests in such a caring way. My mother looked beautiful and the room was set up so nicely. Thank you for giving us direction on the viewing, the Church service, suggestions for the mass procession to even the brunch. It was a wonderful send off for my mother. We know she was smiling down at us from the heavens. Thank you all again!
Your family's kindness made this awful time more bearable. Everything was taken care of and I didn't have to think about anything, I felt confident you would follow through. It was lovely and Mom's body looked beautiful. Everyone was so kind and helpful. I recommend you to everyone and will continue to do so. I really like that it is family run. That is a nice touch.
In our time of need, the whole Kaniewski Family was there for us. When my mother-in-law, Catherine Vroman, unexpectedly passed away, Kaniewski Funeral Home in South Bend treated US like family. Compassionate, thoughtful, professional, and responsive, their services were incomparable. We could not have asked for more. They truly know how to celebrate the lives of the departed, and make the whole process a comforting and beautiful act. My wife and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Thank you for the wonderful job you and your staff did in handling my Mother's funeral. Your expertise and thoughtfulness at such a difficult time made the situation a lot more bearable. From the planning stage to the viewing at the funeral home and the service at the church, your staff conducted themselves with the utmost professionalism and grace. I and my family are very grateful for your caring help and extend our heartfelt thanks.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
