Testimonials


My parents Harlan and Betty Clark passed away the end of March and the middle of May. They were residents of Wesley Manor. We were at the beginning of the Covid lock down and I live in Chicago. To be so far away and with all the Covid restrictions made the situation so much harder. However, Mark and his staff made my life so much easier. Even though we had prearranged everthing there were still many details to sort out. They handled everything for me with kindness and care. Knowing that I had them to care for mom and dad when I couldn’t was a great gift. I could not have asked for a better experience. Even now Mark is making arrangements for me to bury them in our family cemetery in Southern Indiana. Knowing you have placed your loved ones in the best of hands is truly a blessing. Thank you , Mark and staff for the kind and professional service you provide. I hope you realize everyday the difference you make in our lives as we deal with the extreme sadness of losing our loved ones.

No one wants to think about their own death, or the death of a Spouse or parent. However, there is no greater gift you can give to your loved ones than pre-planning these arrangements.

I have experienced both scenarios: when my father died, he had no will, no pre-arrangements made. He died very suddenly, and my stepmother and the four children were naturally devastated and in shock. What I do remember is spending four hours at the funeral home in Colorado. Decisions were very, very difficult to make.

When my stepfather died in Frankfort, Indiana, my mother and I had the foresight to do the pre-planning and pay for everything nearly 2 years prior to his passing. We were able to make decisions calmly, rationally and without emotion. When we returned to Genda after his passing, we were only there for one hour, and it was mainly to talk amongst the family members about the obituary notice.

Please, please do prearrangements as a gift to your family. And let them know that it’s already taken care of and that these are your wishes. It truly is the final, greatest gift you can give to those whom you love.
Thank you to Genda Funeral Home and all of their staff for their continued support.

Genda Funeral Home is not just about taking care of our loss but also taking care of us who have been left behind. The whole staff is loving, caring, and very professional and I would recommend this funeral Home to everyone. God Bless Them in all they do.

With the loss of our Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, we her family, are most appreciative to Mark for his compassion, understanding, and expertise in handling the calling and funeral service. Karli's knowledge in preparing her milestones, interests and community ties created a beautiful tribute to her and her life. John did such an outstanding job portraying her just as we remembered, and allowed us some personal time with her. Pat and Rita were so helpful assisting relatives and friends throughout the process. Mel bringing flowers, pictures and anything else that we had forgotten to our home, was a kindness that allowed us not to worry about those things. And a special gratitude to Rita for her trips to help with the headstone. The guidance, patience and assistance through the process is greatly appreciated. Mark Genda and his team have been a blessing to us at a bittersweet time.

Everything was wonderful for our mother. She looked beautiful; they erased what Alzheimer's took from her and gave us a wonderful memory. All the personal touches and details were perfect.

My children and myself came to Mark as a friend when my wife, Marta, passed.  He listened to our needs to celebrate the life of my wife.  Mark went way above and beyond to accommodate us in our need to celebrate the life of Marta.  The setting for my wife was beyond our expectations and the celebration of her life was amazing.  The final curtain came with a balloon release after the celebration.  Myself and my family will forever remember what Mark and his staff did for us.
The "elephant in the room" will stick with me forever as a way of putting aside grief and enabling us to celebrate Marta Barnes life.

We were very pleased with how Mark and his staff handled my father''s funeral. They walked us through every step of the process and took care of important details just as promised. It''s obvious that this is more than just a "business" to them.  Special thanks to Karli for her expertise in getting the obituary submitted in time.

“You brought comfort and compassion to our entire family at a very difficult time. You may say that is your job; however, I feel you went above and beyond that in answering questions, filling my requests for many items, and handling our large family with so much kindness. Your thoughtfulness and consideration are very much appreciated. I have received so many compliments on how beautifully everything was handled - in every aspect.  Your extra attention to all the many details and extra things will always be remembered and appreciated. Your service is impeccable!

Even though we live in New Mexico we have had several members of my husbands and my family members who have been at Genda's. They have always been very caring and easy to talk too.
We just lost my father in law this past Jun 2nd. I have to say they did a wonderful job on him.
We shared little things with Mark about my father in law.  I don't remember if it was Mark or one of the others I was telling how I had given my father in law a trophy. Was at a loose on weather to put it in his casket with him, or bring it back to N.M. With me. They said you need to take it with you, so glad I did look at it daily and think of my father in law.
I have to say at the cemetery just as the services was coming to an end Mark done something that turned our sorrow into laughter, and we needed it.  Just wondering if he still has the certain something he pulled out of his pocket!  
I would highly recommend Genda's.
