We would like to send our sincere gratitude to the Givnish family and staff. Their professionalism and compassion during a difficult time proved to be above and beyond. From the beginning, Michael Givnish led us through every step of the process and was extremely patient. He went out of his way to fulfill all of our special requests to make sure our loved one's services were beautiful and memorable. The entire staff was readily available, and made us feel confident that every detail of the services would be carried out as we wished. The facility was welcoming and the memorial video tribute brought a warm and comforting touch for us as well as family and friends. Thank you all for your kindness, respect, and calming support during this time of need. We will forever be grateful to the Givinish Team for honoring our loved one's legacy the way we envisioned it.

When my mom passed unexpectedly on the evening of Friday, February 4, 2022, after a heart valve replacement procedure, I was stunned. To make matters worse, I had no idea what the next (first) step was to get possession of her body from the hospital for her burial. I called three people and asked each of then what that first step was, and each told me the same thing – you need to pick a funeral home. After doing some research and reading some reviews, I selected Givnish Funeral Home in Marlton (NJ). I called them on a Saturday morning, spoke to their answering service, and got a call back in less than 10 minutes. I gave them the relevant details of my mom’s passing and made an appointment to come in at 10AM on Monday morning. When I arrived on Monday, the funeral director, Maureen Whirledge, introduced herself, sat down with me, and walked me through the entire process step-by-step. To my surprise and relief, the process had started with my phone call on Saturday morning. Maureen and her team worked with the hospital to take possession of my mom’s body after the hospital coroner released it. They already had her when I arrived on Monday morning. As part of the process, Maureen patiently took me through the selection of the casket, the requirements for the outfit in which my mom would be dressed, the wording for the back of the prayer card, the template for writing the obituary, and the completion of my mom’s death certificate. Through the weeklong process culminating with my mom’s burial on Friday, February 11th, Maureen, Josh (who manages the Marlton home), and their team answered every question, made the changes that we requested along the way including accommodating the addition of late photos to the video tribute, and saw to every detail – nothing was missed!! When I arrived on Friday, my mom looked wonderfully happy and the video tribute that Maureen’s team put together was playing on multiple flat screen TVs and it was fantastic!! My sister and I could not have been more pleased with the funeral service that my mom received from the Givnish Funeral Home. What started out as a terribly panicked phone call on Saturday morning resulted in an absolutely wonderful remembrance and send off for my mom. Maureen and team – you have our sincerest thanks and appreciation for your professionalism, patience, and the job you did on our behalf. THANK YOU!!
