Every Life Tells A Story

At Memorial Services of Iowa, we feel it is an honor to serve you, your family, and our community. Our funeral professionals have been committed to earning your trust. With decades of combined experience, we can help you create a lasting tribute to your loved one that truly reflects his or her unique life and fulfills your family’s needs and traditions.

Celebrations of life can take many forms. No matter what type of service your family designs, we promise to serve you to the best of our ability and to uphold our five core values: Dignity, Respect, Professionalism, Commitment and Fairness.

When your loved one enters our care, we promise to care for him or her as we would one of our own family members.

Our funeral home serves families of all backgrounds, and we promise to respect your family’s traditions.

Each and every member of our staff is committed to providing excellent service to you and your family. We also strive to be fully versed in the latest industry knowledge and developments through participation in continuing education. Lastly, this funeral home and its staff strictly uphold the laws and ethics set forward by the various governing bodies of the funeral industry.

Funeral arrangements often require many difficult decisions, and Ankeny Memorial is committed to serving and guiding you through the process both before the funeral, through pre-arrangement and consultation; when services occur; and long after services, through ongoing aftercare and grief support. We know that the loss of a loved one is a lifelong change, and promise to make ourselves available to answer your questions and help fulfill your needs.

We believe that every family should have access to as much information as possible to make informed decisions. We are determined to provide each and every family the opportunity to create a unique, special memorial for their loved one while providing options that will fit each family’s budget. We promise that our prices for services and merchandise will be fair and competitive, and will answer any questions you have.

How Can We Do It All?
We listen… carefully. We know that some of us find great comfort in traditions, and we work tirelessly to honor those traditions. Others find greater meaning in more personalized services–playing a favorite song, visiting an important place, re-creating a significant life event. Our professional team gets to know each and every family to help each and every individual remember, share, and ultimately move toward healing.
