  • I absolutely love this funeral home. Spencer was so patient with us as we made the funeral arrangements for my Dad. He listened to everything we said about my Dad and made it very personalized to every detail. Lydia and Tim were also wonderful to work with as they were there for us with any questions, concerns or if we just needed a hug. I felt like I had known them for years and they are now friends with my family. I highly recommend this funeral home. I have never been to a funeral with so many personal touches. Thank you Spencer, Lydia, Tim and Courtney for making my Dad's funeral something he was smiling down on.

  • I would highly recommend Skorupski Family Funeral Home as the absolute right choice for the final place to honor the loss of life. Spencer demonstrates a true and sincere effort to make sure your wishes are fully met and that you are at peace with the final arrangements. Spencer really cares and it shows in all he does for both the deceased and the family who grieve the loss of a loved one. I was very satisfied with my decision to place the final care for my mother in Spencer’s hands.

  • "When you lose someone unexpectedly and sudden, the process of preparing a funeral is something that has never crossed your mind. While planning my brother's funeral, Spencer and his thoughtful staff helped us through the tough decisions we had to make and answered the many questions we had. His compassion, empathy and kindness got our family through a devastating time. Spencer not only saw us through the planning stages and funeral, but has become a friend to our family and continues to help us through our grieving stages. He truly is a blessing to our family and also the community."

  • My family’s experience with Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services was nothing short of extraordinary, and, I believe this was due in great part to Spencer Skorupski, the President, Manager & Funeral Director of the organization. During one of the most difficult and saddest times in my family’s history, Spencer was truly there for us. He was knowledgeable, resourceful, available, responsive to every question and incredibly sensitive to my family’s needs. Spencer became a dear friend, providing genuine compassion, support, and, it seemed, almost as though he had been a dear member of our family for years, even though we had just met. Spencer seemed to understand our deep grief, and considering our financial constraints, provided a level of personal commitment, support, services and the resources beyond what we had thought was even remotely possible. The Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services facilities and the setting, are expansive, elegant, quiet, and beautifully appointed. The transportation services and the cremation services were also very well thought out and delivered with the utmost regard for both the family and the dear departed. Every service was highly respectful and gave us the closure that we needed as this very sad time. The staff was very attentive, anticipated our needs, looking after every detail, and sensitive to the times when the family needed to have privacy. I cannot recommend this organization enough for the thoughtful, compassionate support that was given to my family, and the memory of an experience where our dear loved one was treated with greatest respect and care.

  • We mentioned that we would like to have M & M's in dishes, because it was special for our family (intending to take care of it ourselves) and Spencer jumped right in and offered to take care of it. The obituary was very warm and personal. Our whole experience with Spencer and his help was caring beyond the normal.

  • When my grandma passed away in June my mom didn't think she could make it through the funeral. After meeting with Spencer at Skorupski's, that all changed. Spencer has brought every positive experience he has learned about in celebrating the life of a loved one and included his own personal touch while allowing the family to mourn their loss. From letting us choose our own background music to placing a beautiful picture of her on a billboard and even allowing us to provide our family and friends with a necklace in remembrance of her, Skorupski's Family Funeral Home provided our family with a life changing positive funeral experience. Skorupski's continues to provide healing to families through his support gatherings and community events. With heartfelt thanks and appreciation, we will continue to refer our family and friends to your family business.

  • The recent loss of my son was devastating! I had no idea where to start or what to do next. Little did I Know, my new angel in heaven directed to me to another angel right here on earth, Spencer Skorupski! What a blessing! I didn't realize Skorupski's was out in Essexville. I was heartsick because I wanted to be on the west side where my son grew up. I was too consumed with grief to change it. But it didn't take long to realize that we ended up exactly where we were meant to be. First Spencer came out to our home. He provided us with everything we needed to get through those first dreaded steps that are so hard to face. It was extremely helpful to have some sense of direction already thought out for you, when you can barely breathe let alone think clearly. When we all left the funeral home after meeting together the following day, every one of us spoke of the peace and comfort we all felt. We were so at peace that spencer would be keeping him there. Everything Spencer does is thoughtful and heartfelt. It takes a special kind of person to do what he does but there is no doubt that he was born to do this! He was there from the beginning and continues to be a friend as well as a support even though his job is done. Aside from the big things, there are so many little things he does that mean so much, so many personal touches he adds, so many things he goes the extra mile for that he doesn't have to. I can't express enough how wonderful he and his entire staff were/are! Both days, including the funeral, were memorably beautiful and uniquely personalized to my son and our family. I am so happy we found our way there! I will be making plans to be here when my day comes and I absolutely recommend Skorupski's to everyone! ....Once upon leaving, he showed me his door mat that says "Enter as strangers, leave as family" and that is truly the way it is! God Bless You Spencer Skorupski Family Funeral Home & Cremation Services!

  • This is our first funeral as siblings, so we always had a parent around to help with the funeral plans. I don't know how you could improve on something that we all felt was just perfect. You did things that we didn't know and made our father's funeral very special to us. From making us feel like family, being at our beckon call, handling our loved one with respect, right down to putting our father in his final resting place. This is the first funeral we didn't have anything to complain about. We would highly recommend Skorupski Funeral Home to all our family and friends. They go beyond our needs! They could not do enough for us, they made us feel at peace!
