    I've been to many funerals including my 18 year old son but none compare to Phil and his staff. They thought of everything. I could not have been more pleased. Phil and his staff are the BEST. They did my father's service last year, my brother's a few months ago and now my mother. We're very pleased and will use no one else except Hinsey-Brown in the future. Read more

    April 02, 2018

    Mr. Phil Hinsey and his staff should be identified as the "standard" of the funeral home care and service. The others should strive to be as good as they are. I honestly can't think and praise them enough. Everything was very meaningful to me. However, Mr. Hinsey and his staff are what really impressed me the most. They are just so compassionate, thoughtful and professional. -Family of Anna Mae Antic Read more

    During the most difficult time, the funeral home staff did anything and everything to make this as easy as possible. The memory book, recording of the service, copies of the paper with the obituary were all things I didn't even think of. I worked with Jon McCutchen. From the very first time we met, he showed such kindness, caring and compassion. I think very highly of him. -The family of Michael R. Beane Read more

    We found Hinsey-Brown to be the best equipped, staffed and funeral home that was capable of meeting our needs.

  • Jeanette Lee

    On the morning of January 14, 2013 Angels left the presence of God and escorted our beloved husband and father, Danny Lee, into Glory. As a believer, this was the best day of his life, however, for his wife and family it was the beginning of a very long and sad season. Kevin Brown was contacted early that morning and from that moment, he and his staff, including Wanda Jones very respectfully helped us make very difficult decisions. When we arrived at Hinsey Brown later that day, we were greeted by Kevin who informed us that they already had Dad there. This was a great comfort to us. Their kind support continued throughout and beyond the service. David Brown spent weeks helping us find just the right stone for just the right memorial for a man so very loved. He didn’t stop until that perfect marker was set into place. It’s very important to say that after the service is over is when the really hard part begins. The part where you realize the absence and emptiness left behind by a loved one. This is when true grief sets in and you have to learn how to go on without this beautiful person in your life. And we are so very thankful that the love, kindness and support of the Hinsey Brown staff continue into and throughout this process with their extensive after care program. They provide information on what to expect, offer comfort, and share a place to share and work through this difficult process with others going through the stages of grief themselves. After more than 4 years, their care continues. They sponsor outings for their families such as shows at Beef and Boards, Symphony on the Prairie, Indian games and more. Our family is so thankful to them. There is no other group of people we would entrust the care of a loved one to after death. We would like to thank Kevin, Wanda, David and your entire staff. Words cannot really express what your kind compassion has meant to us. Read more
