Joe made my Mom’s funeral arrangements so easy. He coordinated all the involved parties, and took care of everything. In one meeting, all the details were planned, and the church service decisions made and luncheon set up. The entire funeral was beautiful and way beyond expectations.

McNearney-Schmidt has handled the funeral arrangements for several of my family members over the years and I have always been impressed with their services. Joe Schmidt uses a calm, professional approach as he guides you through the various decisions and arrangements that have to be made during a difficult time. If you are in need of funeral services I HIGHLY recommend McNearney-Schmidt.

My highest compliments to Joe and Amy for a very positive experience. Both were fantastic to work with. I’m a pretty critical guy, by nature, and I can’t think of a single thing to criticize. Their guidance, patience and professionalism were VERY appreciated. I felt like I never had to check on anything they were doing. In fact, they often had it covered before it even occurred to me to ask about it. I am especially grateful for their calm responses and patience as we dealt with the unfamiliar aspects of funeral planning and preparation.

Joe and Amy were absolutely amazing in helping my family when my father passed. They were there to answer any questions we had day or night. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing these kind of services and we will definitely use them again if needed. Thank you just isn't enough for the help, kindness and experience they gave us in this difficult time!

I first met Amy a few years ago during a funeral pre planning meeting for my husband and me. She was warm, patient, informative, caring and very authentic. As I thought of extra details or changes, she was always very accommodating with the alterations and updates. Then unexpectedly, this year my husband passed away suddenly and I was so grateful that I had worked with Amy. Then I got to know Joe and he also offered such kind advice and did every detail explicitly! I requested extra details and made some changes and their response was “ of course we can do that”. They were very detailed and helped to manage the funeral perfectly. They are very customer focused as well as highly competent! They were instrumental in helping me find peace after this heart breaking loss in my life. I am so grateful to them and recommend them highly at this very difficult time in a person’s life.

Joe and Amy- Thank you is truly inadequate for all the guidance, support, works and acts of patience and kindness as we planned to celebrate Rick. People have no idea how much they need you when a loved one passes. Your gentle caring manner helped me make all the seemingly impossible decisions. Forever Grateful- Robyn and Family of Rick Wolfe

Dear Joe, I wanted to thank you and your staff for providing a fitting and final tribute for our mom under all of the limitations COVID-19 presents. As my mom was fond of saying "you saw what needed to be done".... I know your education is called mortuary science, but your style and people skills definitely bring the art of care and empathy to the forefront. My best wishes to you....

Joe and Staff, Thank you so much for your kindness, patience and professionalism! Your job is not an easy one and I want you to know how much your efforts are appreciated! You made my mom look so lovely and that meant so much to me. You also did a wonderful job when my dad passed. It is comforting to see people look good and peaceful after you've seen them suffer. God Bless You!
