Welcome to GOETHALS & WELLS Funeral Home and Cremation Care.
As a family operated funeral home with strong local roots, we are here to help families plan a unique and appropriate tribute to honor a life lived. We are proud to continue the funeral home's tradition of being a locally owned and family operated funeral home, serving Mishawaka, South Bend, Granger, Osceola and the surrounding Michiana area.
We are a husband and wife team working together with our experienced staff to serve the families that call on us in their time of loss. To those that dedicate themselves to our profession, funeral service is not an occupation, but a work of the heart. We recognize not only that a death has occurred.... but more importantly, that a life has been lived. We are here providing guidance and support when your need is the greatest.
We first became acquainted with Chris and Marcia almost three years ago when my nephew unexpectedly died at age 19. They handled all his arrangements so professionally, compassionately, and were so supportive of my brother's family at the time of this tragic loss. After that experience, I suggested to my parents they meet with Chris for their pre-arrangements. He graciously came to their assisted living facility to do the preliminary paperwork, choose their urns and make their wishes known for services. Mom died a year ago this week. Chris and Marcia made that transition for us so much easier. They listened to us, wrote a lovely obituary, and again made a trip to my dad's apartment to finalize paperwork after her death. In ten months, we were again calling upon their services for my dad's final arrangements when he died at his assisted living facility. Again, they graciously served our family. The memorial services and inurnment were both handled professionally and beautifully. Scott, Mark and I will be forever grateful to Chris and Marcia for their gracious and loving concern. I highly recommend their business for handling that difficult end of life service.
