Our Values

Commitment to Compassion

Since 1867, Geisen Funeral Homes has been owned and operated by the Geisen family. Why does this matter? It means that when you come to us after losing a loved one, we will treat you as if you were a member of our own family. It also means we answer only to you and never get caught in corporate red tape trying to meet your needs. We’re always here, ready to deliver the most compassionate service to our neighbors in Crown Point, Merrillville, Hebron, Michigan City and surrounding areas.

Commitment to Care
We believe everyone deserves a meaningful farewell that honors the life that was lived and brings healing to the family. That’s why we are committed to offering the highest quality funeral and cremation services at a reasonable cost. That is also why we’ve received the National Funeral Directors Association’s Pursuit of Excellence Award for the past nine years, and we are dedicated to continuing that legacy of service.

Commitment to Community
Part of why we are the premier funeral and cremation provider in Northwest Indiana is because we believe in the power of being a good neighbor. We’ve developed several programs to give back to our families and the communities we have served. Our annual Veterans Dinners (held in Crown Point and Michigan City) are well attended, as we serve veterans and their spouses a complimentary gourmet dinner, complete with entertainment. Our Sew Thoughtful Workshop brings sewing volunteers together to create different projects for various charitable causes. Our annual Christmas Tree Bonfire Celebration is held at the Lake County Fairgrounds each year, as we light a pile of trees aflame to celebrate the Epiphany and community fellowship. Follow us on Facebook to see the full scope of what we do; our service to families doesn’t end with a funeral.

Geisen Funeral Home staff members are dedicated to volunteerism. We know it’s important to reach out where there is need, and our staff members are active in various philanthropic organizations such as: the Lion’s Club, Rotary International, Tri-Kappa, Meals on Wheels, Phil’s Friends, Breakfast Kiwanis, American Legion, Safe Haven Baby Boxes, Michigan City Exchange Club, Loyal Order of Moose and Veterans of Foreign War.
