Your feedback

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.

Thank you so much for your care of our family as we mourned the loss of our beloved mother & grandmother, Evelyn Plautz. Your empathy, concern & attention to detail made a difficult time a little easier.
My husband, Greg, apparently had a very nice conversation with you and felt you are a believer. I thought that was evident in your actions.
Thank you again. Kay

To the staff at Helke's - John, Jeff, Adam, Dean, Kelly & Lisa
Words alone cannot express how grateful we are to all of you for all your work on our behalf and for your care and kindness you have shown to us during this very difficult time for me and my family. You took care of mom with dignity and respect and so patiently helped us with what we needed to do and decisions we had to make.
Please accept our most sincere thanks. Your kindness and professionalism have meant more to us than you'll ever know.

John, Lisa and the rest of your staff:
Just wanted you to kn ow how much me and my sons enjoyed last night, the family remembrance picnic.
What a night to remember our Loved ones. That song that played softly in the back ground about crying, how true.
It seemed like Kermit was sitting among us.
I know he would not have me sad for a single day. How can you not after you've been together almost sixty years.
The food was great, the message how true, and the small charm how meaningful. I shall wear it proudly.
The soft gentle rain that was falling on the way home, were just like the many tears I've had over the last six months.
God Bless you all.

The service we received from Helke was incredible. From them taking my father into their care, to the whole process. Jeff helped my sister and I every step of the way and more. There was not one time he was not available to us for any questions or concerns. When it came to the service it was well put together, and again, Jeff made sure everything went smoothly.

Its hard to find customer service like this anymore. If you want the best possible help and care through a tough time like this, I would recommend Helke Funeral Home to anybody that wants the best from start to finish. I would give them 10 stars if I could!!

We would like to say a heart felt thank you to you for all your help these past several weeks. Your knowledge and guidance have been immeasurable. Our family has chosen Helke's Funeral Home for the past 4 generations. I can certainly see why. The staff members are all very professional and go out of their way to provide customer service, starting with Kelly's welcoming smile when you walk in the door. Thank you all so much!

There are people that can do their work well, and then there are people like you who are called to do what they do. Thank you for your respect in caring for our Mom, for your patience, eye for detail, and helping us do things our way.

I recently worked with the team at Helke's to arrange my grandmother's service. I cannot say enough about the excellent, dedicated care they provided to our family. From preplanning with Shelly, to the initial contact with John when our Grandma died, to the follow-up after with Kelly, Adam, and Jeff. The team at Helke's was caring, dedicated, and helped to create a memorable service that our family greatly appreciated. Their attention to detail and follow through is second to none and my family would recommend them to anyone. We were very satisfied and felt comfort in choosing the Helke Funeral Home.

Adam Holzschuh made this difficult time for my sister and I so much easier than we could have ever imagined. No pressure just kindness and understanding . Adam helped us with the obituary and it was just beautiful. Adam also let us know about burial with military honors and made all the arrangements. We know our father would have been pleased with it all. Our over all experience with Helke Funeral Home was excellent and we give them a 5 star rating. Thank you Adam!

Helke’s provides outstanding professional service and compassionate support. Recently my family had first-hand experience with my Dad’s passing.
John DeLaporte met with us even before we could wonder what should be done. He gently listened and walked us through each step of the process.
The staff accommodated all of our requests from piping in music Pop loved - to designating a special area for the great-grandkids.
Even weeks after, their friendly helpfulness and patience has changed my views (in a positive way) of walking into a funeral home.
They really care…

“It was very comforting to know that all details were handled without having to 'follow-up' on anything.”


“I wanted to write and thank you so much for all your help over the past month. I can't tell you how grateful I was to know I could call you the night Hazel passed away and know you would take care of everything. Hazel's funeral was lovely. Everyone at Helke's did such a nice job. We can't thank you enough.”

J. Bradberg

“The entire funeral was just as my father wanted. All of his wishes were met. John DeLaporte did an excellent job! His compassion, professionalism and expertise was Superior. This was my first experience, and without John, I could not have done it.”


“Burying a spouse is a difficult time to say the least. The professionalism shown to me during that time was a tremendous help. Everything was done to make it easier. I could not be more pleased with the time spent with me - the clearly shown options that were available to me and the kindness and dignity given to me and my family.”


“We were so thankful that John was the director that helped us. He was open to new ideas we had and went above and beyond to help us achieve what we wanted. John could not have done more than he did to help us. He was very caring and considerate and helped tremendously.”


“Dear Lisa,
Thank you and Helke Funeral Home for the lovely basket of fresh fruit.
That was very thoughtful of you and much appreciated.”

"John, Jeff and Staff, Words can not express my gratitude for all you have done. May God Bless you all."


The abundance of kindness and the amazing work and set up did not go unnoticed. All of the staff that we worked with were just impeccable. Thank you for making a hard day go just that much smoother. We would recommend you in a heart beat.


Dear John and the team,
From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to say Thank You to you and your team. Your career is not a job, it is a mission to bring comfort and sympathy during the hardest time in human life. May God shower lots of blessing to you, your family and the team.
