I knew Kathy but really never knew Kathy because she was always so quiet.so positive and always had a smile on her face. I never saw Kathy in a bad mood or ever anything but a beautiful young girl while in school and lady after graduation. Kathy was always so kind,caring,sweet and a loving fellow classmate of ours from the Zanesville H.S. Class of 1962. Rest in Peace Kathy and thanks for all the wonderful memories many of us have from our high school days. Sadly Ron and Mary Ann Bucci
Bill and Mary did an outstanding job of handling all the details for the funeral of our father. Everything was done with such compassion. They were there to assist and answer questions and give helpful suggestions when needed. This allowed the family to celebrate Loren's life with family and friends without stressing over the details. We could not have asked for a smoother day of visitation, funeral, and interment. We highly recommend McPeek-Hoekstra Funeral Home!!!
We can not say enough about how amazing Bill and Mary are! They went above and beyond (and more) to make everything perfect during our times of grief. We lost our first family member in March of 2015, and then another unexpectedly in January of 2016. Both services were absolutely stunning. The amount of care and compassion that goes into their work is unbelievable. You will not find another funeral home who cares as much as they do, guaranteed.
It's been five years since my mother, Marilyn Hiles, passed away, but what I still remember vividly is the professionalism, compassion and caring that Bill and Mary Hoekstra showed our family. The sadness of the occasion was lifted considerably by the wonderful video that the Hoekstras put together from our old photographs. The video helped remind everyone of what an amazing life my mother had lived during her 85 years. It seemed as though every aspect of the arrangements and the service went flawlessly. My wife and I dreaded the thought of searching for the right dress for Mom to be laid to rest in, but Mary somehow came up with one that was absolutely perfect. Instead of worrying about every last detail, we were able to spend some quality time with old friends and family members. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate the Hoekstras' efforts at somewhere around a 14 or 15. And I think it's a safe bet that Bill and Mary provide the same degree of caring and individual attention for other families as they did for ours.
Dear Bill and Mary, We wanted to thank you both for the beautiful service for our mother. You both poured your hearts into it and exceeded our expectations! Thank you.
Bill, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did to make my grandmother's funeral special and stress free. You did so much that you didn't have to do. It meant the world to me. Thank you.
Mary and Bill, Thank you so much for everything you've done for us, guiding us, patiently, honoring our requests. You are truly good, kind, yet professional, people. God Bless you.
Dear Mary, Thank you for the wonderful way in which all was handled by the funeral home- all that you and your husband did to make the event truly a special time for all. There are so many details to consider and you worked so well together as a team and made it run smoothly and effortlessly.
Dear Bill, I am so grateful for your grace and humor through this very difficult time. You are very good in your job and we all appreciated your kindness, thoughtfulness, and timeliness. My best. TRS
Bill and Mary, I want to thank you for all your time, patience, and love. Thinking of the generations of my family being at McPeek's is and was overwhelming for me, you put me at ease. I was so blessed to have you both by me.
Dear Bill and Mary, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all that you did for our family and the beautiful service to honor his life. You were great to work with, my dad looked fabulous, and I felt we got a lot for the cost, to be honest. I couldn't have imagined having Dad's funeral anywhere else except at McPeek- Hoekstra. You did such a nice job and went above and beyond, like arranging for the hearse to drive off with Dad, or searching for special music. I have some wonderful memories of his send-off to the eternal world. Thank you so much!
Everything was so nice and professionally arranged. Mary, you were a God send!! Thank you for all your care.
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.
