Your feedback

We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve.  Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.

August 2023 Unfortunately we had to utilize Michael and Dons services again so quickly. They are starting to feel like part of our family. Grandma passed while we were on vacation and when we returned Michael made the process yet again so easy and had so much compassion for the family. I highly recommend this funeral home. The building is small and old but that is what makes it more peaceful. It is the oldest in Shelby County. Much love and appreciation to Michael and Don January 2023 There are no words to explain. Michael and Don treated us with so much compassion and made the unimaginable process smooth and easy unlike the other funeral home we first contacted. Home is a small but it was perfect for my mothers funeral but it felt cozy. I would highly recommend

We could not have asked for any better service. They were so caring and very helpful with our needs. When it came time to plan the services their prices were the cheapest of all funeral homes that we checked with. Very happy with all that they have did for us. Excellent service and would definitely use them again.

Michael and Don made my whole experience with planning a funeral flawless during such a tough time. They were clear and thorough with everything and did not push me in any direction for my decisions. They were also very understanding and patient with me as I live on the other side of the state.

Salm-McGill & Tangeman provided peaceful, professional services in a serene, tastefully decorated environment. They were polite and patient as we chose our urns and prepared the obituary. I would recommend them to anyone's family in their time of need.

Michael B. Is awesome. He answered all my questions and took his time explaining different options. We did most of the service on phone because of the things I requested. Good prices and excellent service.

The service for my husband, Richard Grigg, was stress free, respectful and professional, yet personal. All went smoothly. Thank you once again - beautiful experience for all of us.

Doug Wise went above and beyond the call of duty in providing a very nice service for my mother this morning. He listened to everything we wanted and made it happen. All we had to do was show up. I wold highly recommend that you take a look at this facility before making a decision on who shold lay your loved ones to rest. Doug Wise is one of the hardest working people I know and I can tell that he really cares. Ii is amazing how much he got done in such a short amount of time, and always with a smile. From my entire family, Thank you so much!

Our brother was a Catholic Priest from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. When he passed away, there were many contacts and rituals to be taken care of, from the Archdiocese, to the church, to the liturgy, and everything in between. The staff at Salm-McGill and Tangeman were professional and handled all these arrangements. They were personable, and kind, and treated us as family. I would recommend Don Tangeman and Doug Wise for their professionalism and kindness in this trying time.

We have used Salm-McGill and Tangeman in the past and will definitely use them again when necessary.   They truly care about the families they serve.   In a very stressful and ad time, it is nice to be shown such compassion and respect.   All of the staff were wonderful in every way.  My wife (Mary Sherman) looked so natural and lovelier than ever.  We want to thank everyone at Salm-McGill and Tangeman.

Salm-McGill and Tangeman has been servicing our family for over 6 generations. They pay attention to EVERY detail. Their sincere kindness is extraordinary. The staff was like "family" when we were there. They made a very sad time just a bit easier!! In fact, a LOT easier!! Thank-you

Don Tangeman was very particular about the memorial service for my mom. Very helpful and available to me at this very difficult time. Don also kept in contact with me as further questions developed. Grateful for his time and commitment to his clients. Professional, respectful and caring. Definitely understands the grieving process one goes thru. Would highly recommend him and his funeral services.


My husband, Jeff, passed away nearly one year ago in August, 2013. It has taken (and currently is taking) me some time to process this finality, and it is concerning this matter that I write to you today. First, I would like to express my gratitude to the many residents from Sidney and Piqua and surrounding areas, as well as out of town visitors for their overwhelming kind condolences. The outpouring of love and compassion was truly touching and very much appreciated.   It was wonderful to us to take with the many people who expressed such positive and sincere feelings about Jeff; my children found these testimonies to be particularly comforting. Thank you to all! Secondly, I would like to take this opportunity to publically thank Mr. Doug McGill and Mr. Don Tangeman from Salm-McGill and Tangeman Funeral Home for their extraordinary efforts to honor our wishes for Jeff's viewing and funeral service.   Both Mr. McGill and Mr. Tangeman were friendly, easy to talk with, and very knowledgeable about end of life issues. They respectfully guided us in making our many funeral decisions. But, what was most impressive were their efforts to help us plan a very unique and personalized funeral service complete with flying the Ohio State flag and Buckeye music playing in the background. Mr. McGill even went so far as to carry water outside to visitors who were waiting in line to enter the funeral home as the weather that evening was quite hot and humid. Mr. McGill and Mr. Tangeman took care of many details for us - both large and small - and they succeeded in making our difficult time a calm and peaceful experience. Thank-you for this opportunity to share these thoughts today. Thank-you to Mr. McGill and Mr. Tangeman and to all of you who supported me and my children at Jeff's passing. I will be forever grateful.
