In my career as a pastor, I have had the opportunity to work with many funeral homes. Many, unfortunately, seem to provide their services primarily for monetary gain. Hartquist Funeral Chapel is a business with a true heart of compassion for their clients. God bless you all for your help to our family!

They are so caring. Plus they bring up points we don't always think of. Easy to work with. Everyone was wonderful. Everything was just breathtaking.

You are #1. Hartquist Funeral Home continues to go beyond all expectations. Greta is amazing and gifted. We had to finish our planning over the phone and by emails. Her effort in communication, both ways, was so appreciated. She kept working toward the perfect funeral booklet that would be perfect for us all. You are lucky to have her and her many skills. Thank you for a perfect funeral mass for our mother.


Everything was done so professionally and with compassion. We so appreciate all you've done for our family during this difficult time of loss of our loved one. Special thanks to Lewis who was there for us through it all. God bless you all!

Lewis really made me feel good at the Service of Remembrance at the chapel. I had to attend alone, so it was difficult. He really helped me and was so sweet.

Stella Lingen

You guys were the best. You were all very professional, but at the same time kind, polite, concerned and caring during an impossibly difficult time. I don't know how you do it but you guys were the best. I am very grateful and appreciative.

Deb Kennedy

Best experience ever. Lewis did an outstanding job of taking care of our needs at every moment. We appreciated his comfort and timeliness - always anticipating what our next need would be.

Lee Gilmore

I never doubted your integrity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! God bless you all.

The good things that stood out to me: Referring to my mother as "mom", not your mom but just "mom". She was brought from the Slayton church to Luverne after the visitation and back again the next day for the funeral, putting her in the funeral chapel and not leaving her in the garage - wow! The empathy and compassion - wow! Hartquist Funeral Home does an excellent job. Keep up the good work!!

Marianne Perkins

We (as a family) feel very satisfied with how everything was handled. We would certainly refer anyone to Greta if we were asked.
