Personalized funerals

Our mission at Schmidt Dhonau Kucner Funeral Home is to help families create personalized funerals and memorials. This approach keeps us open to traditional religious rites as well as contemporary gatherings that deeply reflect a person's life. That means that whether you want a basic cremation with ashes scattered in a personally meaningful place, a funeral in our cozy chapel with cemetery burial nearby, or a modern celebration of life with live music, favorite foods and a send-off that expresses the passions of yourself or your loved one, we are happy to deliver.

Want an afternoon ice cream social? Or maybe an evening wine and cheese gathering is a better fit. Were you thinking about a golf-themed funeral complete with a putting green, a gathering at the 19th hole and personalized golf balls takeaways? If you can imagine it, we can make it happen.

Cremation services

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and different options. From a direct cremation without a memorial service or a witness cremation to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common choice—and handle all of the cremation arrangements.

Call or visit us

Andrew J. Schmidt founded what is now Schmidt Dhonau Funeral Home in Reading in 1932. He opened the business on Walnut Street and later moved it to the present location at 8633 Reading Road. By 1959, Andrew was ready to expand his business, so he purchased our property at 10980 Reading Road in Sharonville and opened an additional funeral home.

Both locations of Schmidt Dhonau Kucner Funeral Home welcome families from all walks of life with dignity and respect. We pledge to give you the care you need and the value you deserve. Please call or come by to tour the funeral home or get more information about our services.
