The Difference Family Ownership Makes

When the time comes that someone you love dies, you want to be certain the funeral home you choose cares enough about you to do all it takes to understand what is important to your family. Some funeral service providers here in Astoria and Greater Queens communities are owned by large corporations far from home. When corporations move in, that personal service and attention to detail is often lost. When you choose a funeral home owned and operated by a family, you can trust they will know how to treat you. And they will have the flexibility to do what it takes to meet your needs without being tied up by any sort of corporate red tape.

The DifferenceFarenga Funeral Home has been locally and family owned since its founding in 1876. Family is as important to us as it is to you.

Since we live and work among you, we understand your values and traditions and know how to weave them into the farewell you would like to plan. Because we live in such a diverse community, we make it a priority to be able to represent all faiths and cultures.

At Farenga Funeral Home, family ownership also means personal service. We make ourselves available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With us, you’ll never feel like a number. Our family will be a part of your tribute, whether in the service with you or behind the scenes, making sure everything is perfect – from coordinating timing, to selecting music for the service or video tribute. There are many options we make available to you. We know it’s these little details that matter most.

Family ownership means providing value. We don’t want you to worry about cost, so we make it possible to plan a service that fulfills your needs while respecting your budget. This is also why so many Queens families come to us to preplan their own funerals. When you make your choices ahead of time, removed from the emotion of the moment, it’s much easier to avoid overspending.

For more information on either planning a tribute for your loved one, or preplanning your own arrangements, contact us any time. Remember, when you choose Farenga Funeral Home, you’re choosing caring, compassionate attention from one neighbor to another.
