Why O’Connell-Benedict

You may notice that as you drive down the street or page through the phone book, you are always given plenty of service options. Looking for a dentist? You could have 10 or more to choose from in certain areas. Need an oil change? There are plenty of places that are happy to help. Are you hungry? There is a restaurant on every corner. So how do you make your decision on where to go? What sets one place apart from the others?

The staff at the O’Connell-Benedict Family Funeral Home realizes that the same goes for funeral services.

Personalization & Memorialization

Every family we serve has a different idea of how they want to memorialize their loved one. Our funeral home staff approaches each family with the attitude of “You tell us what you want to do. We will do everything we can to make it happen.” This includes not just the services themselves, but the little details (i.e., setting up the funeral home for visitations, ordering flowers, setting up food, coordinating with musicians, churches, and cemeteries, etc). Our staff takes care of all the details so the families don’t have to. Now, while this should be expected of any funeral home, it isn’t always the case. With that in mind, we strive to anticipate and meet the needs of the families we serve. And, with every family, every service, and every situation, we do all we can to exceed the standards in what is provided.

Why O’Connell-Benedict? Because we make the things we do, for the families we serve, personal. In doing that, we have earned the reputation for being the best at what we do. We take that charge seriously and work hard to live up to those expectations every day.

These days, everyone knows that cost is also an issue. The phrases “More for your money” and “Worth the cost” come up a lot on a daily basis. If you are unsure what funeral home to use, the O’Connells encourage you to shop around and compare prices and services. That is because we know that ours can’t be beaten. Even if competitors offer to match the prices, our services are unmatched.

Why O’Connells-Benedict? Because we aren’t just another funeral home. Simply put, we are the best at what we do.
