We are extremely proud of our beautiful facility, located at 4 South Grand Avenue in Neillsville. It offers a warm inviting atmosphere, providing an area to gather by the fireplace with family and friends.
Our new facility is handicapped accessible, has ample chapel seating, a large foyer/lobby area, new furnishings, a spacious arrangement room and several other lounges for families to enjoy.
With our facility and wonderfully caring staff, we are able to offer multiple types of services, enabling families to memorialize their loved one with a funeral or memorial service, utilizing earth burial, entombment, or cremation.
Our professional and caring staff is always available to meet with and to assist families in creating a special ceremony to reflect the life of a loved one. Our training and experience have prepared us to help, to reassure, and to understand when a family faces the loss of a loved one, and we want people to know that we will assist them day or night.
In addition, our state-of-the-art equipment enables families to bring in several pictures to tell a story of the deceased through a customized service program. Our staff encourages families to select special music, pictures and a eulogy which can be turned into a video to be a part of the evening visitation, as part of the funeral, or during a luncheon. Our hope is that friends and family members will come to cherish these personal memorials for years to come.
Another service offered is assistance in pre-planning the funeral, a way to reflect on one’s life before the time of need, which helps loved ones plan a celebration that is both meaningful and comforting to survivors. We know that it is sometimes difficult for families to discuss the topic of funeral arrangements. Our experience has been that after a pre-planning meeting, people feel a sense of peace, knowing they have taken care of so many important decisions.
Consumer education is also an important focus for our staff. Our licensed staff are able to provide presentations on several topics relating to funeral service. The funeral home has been host to many tours from local schools, church groups, medical fields, clergy, etc. Inquire within the funeral home if you are interested in organizing a group tour or educational seminar.
Because of the above, we are very proud of Gesche Funeral Home’s most recent award by the National Funeral Director’s (NFDA): the Pursuit of Excellence Award, their premier program for honoring excellence and unshakable ethical standards in funeral service. Firms receive national recognition for their outstanding service, professional integrity and dynamic public relations programs.
To achieve recognition in the Pursuit of Excellence Program, a funeral home must meet at least 31 criteria in nine categories of achievement. The categories include: education, compassionate service, technical skills, community and professional service, library or media resources, professional development, in-house staff training, and public and community relations.
Our goal at Gesche Funeral Home is to help each family honor the life of their loved one with a service offering dignity, integrity, and respect...allowing family and friends to come together to remember, to honor, to support each other and to celebrate a life that has lived.
