Isaiah was such a comforting help helping us with arrangements for mom. He took care of all the details for the funeral here in town and then the transport to TX for her burial. The whole team was amazing and made everything beautiful. Thank you Isaiah and your team. Cheri Crawford April 11 2024

Thank you all so much for the comfort and support provided to our family during the planning and throughout the services for our mother. The preplanning with Isaiah was a huge relief to not have to make so many decisions during this difficult and stressful time. Spenser treated our family with kindness and compassion. All of our questions and requests were addressed thoroughly and thoughtfully. The slideshow set to our own requested music was so well done, and the funeral bulletin was perfectly designed. He really captured the spirit of our mom. The setup at visitation and again at the church were beautiful. Your guidance throughout the days was so comforting and allowed us the freedom to grieve for our mother without worrying that all was taken care of. Please extend our thanks to the entire team at Schott Funeral Homes!

Words cannot begin to express the professionalism of the Schott Funeral Home. Isaiah and staff were kind and truly went above and beyond to make some difficult days a little easier me and my family. I simply cannot thank you enough. So many commented on the beautiful tribute to Tom and the organization it took for things to happen from the viewing at Immanuel to the cemetery. A special thank you to Tasha who gave Ryleigh her wish on that day and for answering questions of little ones that wanted to know if Grandpa was wearing his shoes. All of you put us so at ease. Thank you so very, very much.

It is impossible to adequately thank you Isaiah for all you have done for our family during the loss of our mother, Marie Herndon and previously our father, Caroll. You truly went above and beyond to help us through this very difficult time. It is very apparent you genuinely.

It is Great that you keep us informed on people who have passed in this area of Iowa. You did a supper job for my brothers funeral a few years ago.My wife & I are both from Winnebago Co so this is one of the few connections we now have. Thank you for all you do. Ken & Marge Moen.
