The death of my husband was the worst time of my life. Steve and John Kohl led me and my family on this sad journey, taking care of every detail - from prompt, compassionate, respectful and professional transport of the body - to planning of the services in the funeral home, church and cemetery plus the luncheon. In following weeks, they were ever available for more thank you's, military benefit questions and life insurance assistance. I will be eternally grateful for Parker Kohl Funeral Home and staff at our greatest time of need.
They went a extra mile for things we wanted to have. Very comforting, professional, and reliable. A true class act.
The whole experience was better than I expected. Helpful in making common sense decisions. Pricing was thoroughly explained. Definitely recommend your funeral home to other people. Thanks so much.
I would highly recommend the services of Parker Kohl. You made our preplanning very easy. Jerry felt you had answered all our questions. I really appreciated your providing so much patient help and information.
Parker Kohl went above and beyond our expectations. They were so helpful. With their experience they gave us information and advice we didn't know we needed at the time.
Thank you for being there for our family. We so appreciate your family, thoughtfulness. We couldn't have gotten through this difficult time without you!
Parker Kohl funeral home managing all details in a caring, complete and detailed manner. They coordinated all events and activities for the funeral, taking care to make sure the details were all as we requested. In such a hard time, especially with COVID, they made this easy and cared for our family.
The Kohl family has been in Faribo as long as I can remember. My entire family back to my grandparents have known the Kohls for years for their excellent services and as being very cordial during the event everyone dreads. "A death in the family." Katie and I new some of the Kohl family a little better. Kate graduated from B.A. in 1958 as did Jim and Kay. I graduated with Ann Kohl (Griffin) in 1955. I also worked with Jim on building construction the summer of 1960. Jim was going to college and I just got out of the service....Now all of the Kohls reputation is in the hands of Steve, John and all of their amazing staff...."So far so good you guys".
Our family was so impressed on how professional, organized, and kind Parker Kohl was in helping us with our mom's funeral. Steve is extremely professional and very organized and we loved the attention that was given to every little detail. We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience in such a sad time for our family.
From start to finish, the staff at Parker Kohl were professional, helpful, informative and sympathetic. Our service was perfect given the unexpected death of my father. Thank you so much for caring for my dad as if he were your own family.
Just like to take the time to Thank John, Steve and Staff. They took a difficult situation for my Family and made it a whole lot easier to get through. Their professionalism that put forth is outstanding.
I will remember everything about the service. Steve was awesome and all details were done perfect. Our dad had his service through Parker Kohl in 2016 and we dealt with John for his service and it was just as great of service. John and Steve are very genuine and show everyone the utmost respect. Thank you!
Honestly you made the hardest day a very easy process. Your thoughtfulness, care, and concern for all involved was amazing. Your attention to detail on every aspect from start to finish made the process simple. Communication was spot on. We can't thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts. The day was an absolutely beautiful tribute to my mother. Thank you Steve & Staff.
We needed your patience in helping us through the whole process! Your guidance was much appreciated. Mom looked beautiful and at peace. Thank you so much!
Each experience we have had with the Parker Kohl Staff has been very efficient, supportive and comforting. We would not hesitate to recommend Parker Kohl to our family and friends.
Kohl's treated us with respect and helped us hold everything together. They thought of everything. Thank you so very much.
Steve treated us like family. I can't say enough about how wonderful he was. He went ABOVE and BEYOND anything we could have imagined. Thank you so much.
What a wonderful experience to do business with such a caring, and professional funeral home, such as Parker Kohl. They did an outstanding job on making the wishes of (Leonard), and the Sorbel Family complete. God Bless.
Your services were amazing and really brought our family comfort. You took care of everything and put our minds at ease through this very difficult time. Thank you so much for your compassion and kindness. Dad is smiling from heaven. God Bless.
John and Steve Kohl and their staff exceeded our expectations. They respected and honored my loved one and made us feel like we were their most important client. They went over and beyond to transform their funeral home into our own personal family space. It was intimate and felt like we were inviting our friends into our home.
The Kohl family makes you feel welcomed and part of their family. We felt they were not going to drop the ball, it was all under control, as it definitely was.
The services provided were professional, caring and above and beyond what we would have ever expected. The afternoon was beautiful and allowed us to celebrate our loved one's life without any added stress. We are so grateful.
Steve and John were so very helpful when we started to plan the funeral with mom. Pre-Planning allowed mom to pick how her funeral would go. It made for a much easier time on our family to have it already set during our grieving process.
Parker Kohl did an excellent job. They were so kind, gentle, compassionate. So glad we did a little pre-planning so that all we had to do was make a phone call even though we were out of state at our winter home.
We would recommend your business to everyone. For us, not knowing the process and having minimal time for preparation, we greatly appreciated how you made yourselves available and everything organized so that we had few decisions to make. Not to mention the time you took to put everything together was impressive.
To say that we are blessed to have Steve and John Kohl serving our Community is an understatement. They are there for you at every moment helping you through this difficult time in your life in a most caring way. We are so appreciative to them for all they have done.
From our first initial meeting with John we were treated with kindness, respect, and understanding. On such a hard day for me everything was perfect, I couldn't have asked for more. The staff went above and beyond on every detail!
So helpful on every aspect. Took care of things not thought of by family automatically. Guest commented on the beautiful building. Friendly caring from all. Thank you so very much!
Excellent counseling in presenting the options available. As a result, I was able to decide what was appropriate for me and my family. All personnel were very professional and helpful. Very caring folks to work with.
You are truly experts in the field. We appreciated your thoroughness. We were treated with such kindness and compassion. We had the confidence of knowing it would be done right - as Dad would have wanted. We had a touching and memorable service that went off seamlessly. We were completely satisfied with our experience.
Definitely recommend Parker Kohl to everyone! Great job! Courteous and professional services.

You were a big help and support to us who aren't used to doing this very often. We very much appreciate your services.
I couldn't thank John and Steve enough for the compassion and easy funeral planning they have provided our family. Parker Kohl has been there for all of our funeral planning needs for over 45 years! They are truly amazing and there is no one else I would trust to take such good care of my family. They go above and beyond with everything they do!
We wanted to Celebrate our Mother's life and Parker Kohl helped us to make that happen. If we were in need of these services in the future...We would choose Parker Kohl again.
We are completely satisfied with your services. Everyone was so kind, compassionate, and courteous. Especially giving us extra time, we never felt rushed. We felt supported and assisted throughout the whole experience.
From the moment when the hospice (Brighton) contacted Parker-Kohl Funeral Home, Steve Kohl handled every arrangement for and with our family in a very professional and caring way. We never felt any pressure to make a decision - only patient explanations and respect for our decisions. Every staff member was polite and efficient. We would recommend Parker-Kohl.
Going through a difficult process was very stress free. Very professional and courteous service. They took care of all our needs
The family of Leatrice Malecha would like to thank John, Steve, Jerry, Nick and Deanne and all the staff at Parker Kohl Funeral Home for their extreme kindness, respect and dignity shown to Mom and all of us during this difficult time. We knew, from past experience, that we didn't have to worry about any of the details as they have always done a phenomenal job for our family and Mom was no exception.

The facility is beautiful. The care and compassion shown by the Kohl's and their staff was exceptional. The dining room where the luncheon was held was comfortable and the servers did a great job. We would highly recommend using this funeral home to anyone that asks.
You tended to every detail including ordering extra food as more people came than we expected. We didn't have to worry about anything. Your professionalism, caring and concern for us was exemplary.
The personal service given to our family by your entire staff was second to none. We especially like the video tribute.
It is so wonderful to have a family-owned funeral home that has been a long standing part of the Faribault community! Your beautiful new facility reflects your kind and gentle care of every family you serve! May God bless us in this important ministry!
No words can describe the kindness, thoughtfulness, the caring, the compassion, the comfortableness that Parker-Kohl created at the time of my loss. The Kohl Brothers are professionals that made a difficult time in my life easy to get thru
Our family had 2 deaths within one month of each other and Parker Kohl took care of everything. The compassion, support, gentle kindness during this time made the entire planning process so much easier & smoother. I can't say enough about how wonderful their services are - very personal, yet professional. Thank you to Steve, John, and Deanna
Based on our experience with the recent death of our mother, Lori Holstad, we would give Parker Kohl the highest accolades - and many people who attended her visitation and service made similar comments! From the beginning, John and Steve effortlessly guided us through the process, paying attention to every detail and then respectfully and smoothly executed her final farewell with loving care. At a time when we had other concerns, Parker Kohl handled many necessary actions that left us worry-free and undistracted. The DVD Parker Kohl produced was an added benefit that has everlasting memories captured for us and several family members have requested their own copy. When you are in need of professionals to handle your loved one's final moments, this 4th generation business is a firm you can trust and rely on to carry out all aspects of your wishes. We extend our deepest thanks to John, Steve, and all the staff at Parker Kohl for their kind and gentle manner as they managed our mother's services and for the beautiful memories that will be etched in our minds forever.

Steve and John are true professionals. Kind, caring and extremely helpful thru the entire process. They make a very difficult time as painless as possible. Parker Kohl Funeral Home is a first class company that has served our family twice. I would recommend them to all.
You made everything easy all details are taken care of when you walk out of that 1st meeting, so you can go take care of the family. You just have to show up everything else is done. Thank you all for what you do so well.
How kind and warm all the staff is. I always know everything will be done perfectly from start to finish, and I always can feel the genuine caring you have for grieving families. Thank you to all for what you do. It takes special people to be in this kind of business. My family has used your services for 25+ years. My parents, my grandparents and many extended family and friends. I have never been disappointed or know of anyone who has been. You are all awesome! God bless!
We were very happy with services you provided.
The passing of a loved one is never an easy time. Parker Kohl - especially Steve - helped my family thru the process with such care and professionalism. They treated my father with dignity and care as if he was part of their family. Steve gently guided my mother thru the funeral process with a kind hand and word making her feel at ease during the most difficult time.
Parker Kohl thinks of everything so that you don't have to. All the details of the funeral service are taken care of and family can concentrate on other pertinent issues. Always professional, they went over and above expectations.
