Our Anoka funeral home

Our dedicated Anoka funeral home associates welcome families to plan a custom funeral or memorial service that reflects a special life. We understand the impact of losing a loved one and also recognize the need to celebrate life. That's why all of our services are designed to showcase a person's passions and personality while offering comfort to family and friends.

Our spacious chapel accommodates groups both large and small. Gearhart Anoka Funeral Home has a variety of amenities to ensure your needs are met by our caring team. We'll guide you through the entire funeral planning process and offer special benefits, including bereavement travel, a 24-hour helpline and ability to customize obituaries and keepsakes.

WHV 2020 - Level 3We honor veterans

At Gearhart Anoka Funeral Home, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Three Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, our staff is knowledgeable in the benefits available to veterans and their families. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran's memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

Jackie the funeral home therapy dog

Experiencing loss and grief can be one of the most emotional, somber moments of life. Jackie, our beloved funeral home therapy dog, offers comfort to family and friends during this difficult time. Jackie’s steady and unwavering companionship helps to relieve stress and anxiety and provide a sense of consolation and calm to an otherwise stressful experience. Whether families are preparing to say their final farewells or going through the grief process after loss, Jackie is here to provide additional support and unconditional love when you need it most.

The Nightingale Tribute

Presented by the Nurses Honor Guard, The Nightingale Tribute pays homage to any registered nurse or licensed practical nurse for their years of service. For many, nursing is a calling and a way of life. It is a profession that cannot be lived in isolation and one in which nurses rely on each other for the synergistic effect of teamwork in all efforts of care giving. It is for these reasons that we honor nurses at the end of life’s journey with a special tribute.

"Cassandra McMurray and James Archer may feel like they were just doing their jobs, but I felt a sense of not only professionalism, but heartfelt compassion for myself and my family. They both went over and above to make a very difficult situation go better than I even imagined it would. Their knowledge and wisdom was incredible. I personally am grateful for their guidance, as I had no knowledge of dealing with the task of laying my mother to rest. Thank you Cassandra and James."

"This was the first time I've lost a loved one in my life. We had no idea where to really start as the death of my father-in-law was rather unexpected. From my very first call to Gearhart, I was blown away with the kindest, compassion, efficiency, and guidance we were shown. Losing a loved one is painful and difficult, but the entire funeral process was so smooth and stress-free, we never had to worry about the added stress of logistics. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

"I have had an experience with another local funeral home that didn't leave me with a good or even genuine feeling. Gearhart Anoka by far exceeded all of my expectations and went above and beyond to make sure my requests and needs were being met. Their customer service is exemplary, their pricing is fair and less than their local competitor, and quite frankly, they just 'get it' when taking care of their customers. I highly recommend Gearhart Anoka and will tell everyone I know the great experience they will receive in using their services and products. Thank you Gearhart Anoka, especially Ryan and Kathy."
