Reiff Funeral Home has locations in Cascade, Dyersville, Farley, Epworth and now a brand new facility on Peosta Street in Peosta. A grand opening was held the last week of August. The new home has an event center and is handicap accessible throughout.
“We spent a great deal of time looking for the perfect location to build the funeral home in Peosta,” Peggy Reiff, co-owner, said. “In 2015, we purchased the property we felt would best serve the city and the surrounding communities.”
It took six to nine months to come up with a design plan, which was sent to contractors for bids and the process began. The site survey was completed in June 2019, and excavating started a month later. The project was completed in August 2020.
“We decided we needed to pursue building a facility in Peosta after being approached by several people and community leaders all encouraging us and consistently reaffirming ‘you need to build a funeral home in Peosta,’” Reiff said.
Reiff Funeral Home offers traditional and non-traditional funeral services as well as many other personalized services. The facility features an event center that can be used for community events, dinners, seminars, holidays and other personal family events. The building also has rooms to accommodate all families and off-street parking.
Owners Joe and Peggy have been in the funeral business for 40 years, and they used several ideas to create the plan they felt would best serve this community.
“We have the technology to record and live stream services,” Reiff said. “Our main goal in designing this facility was to create a place of comfort for the families we serve, during some of the toughest days of their lives.”
They specialize in advanced planning, traditional services, non-traditional services and honoring and assisting veterans with their benefit application needs. They also offer a Continuing Care Program.
“We feel honored to now have the capability to truly make a difference in serving the families of Peosta and the surrounding communities,” Reiff said. “Our caring staff takes great pride in assisting individuals and families in many different areas. We are excited to be open, allowing our family to serve your family.”
