It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.
Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
Kruise Funeral Homes, Inc. was founded in 1984 and 1985 with the merger of two funeral homes, Shoff Funeral Home in Madera and Buranovsky Funeral Home in Ramey. Frank Kruise had worked for Shoff Funeral Home in high school, completed his internship at the firm, and went to work for Mr. Shoff. In 1984, Shoff’s competitor, Leonard E. Buranovsky approached Mr. Kruise about buying his business, and that purchase took place that December. When Mr. Shoff decided to retire, he offered the firm to Mr. and Mrs. Kruise, and they completed the purchase of Shoff Funeral Home in June, 1985. In 2002, Mr. and Mrs. Kruise built a new funeral home facility in Ramey. In 2015, Frank and Debora Kruise sold the two funeral homes to Joseph Spewock, and he formed Kruise-Spewock Funeral & Cremation Services, Inc.
The staff of Kruise-Spewock Funeral & Cremation Services, Inc. operates under the foundation of commitment to “providing the highest level of ethical, professional, and personal service to the families we serve.” We pride ourselves on making every family feel comfortable and at ease and on providing services that are “above and beyond the expected.” This is evident not only in our dedication to the families wey serve in our community, but it is further exemplified by the beautiful buildings we work hard to maintain.
