Licensed Funeral Director Jana Haldenwang also is a certified bereavement counselor from the American Academy of Bereavement. Her services are readily available to assist our families and community members.

Direction and Referral

As added help to families, we can provide direction and referral to community support groups, grief counselors, and other professionals who can be of assistance.

Grief Lending Libraries

As part of our ongoing commitment to serve our families and to assist local communities, Campbell-Dean has available an extensive library of books for lending that families may borrow. The collections are available at both the Oneida and Canastota locations.

Selections include books on the topics of death and dying, managing grief, care giving, finding support groups, and other pertinent and practical topics.

Materials are intended for the families we serve, but are also available generally to all community members who are experiencing the loss of family members (including pets), and how to help someone who is experiencing grief.

Recently, Campbell-Dean added grief libraries in four new public-access locations so these reading materials are more easily and conveniently available for community members’ borrowing.

Through our donation of these books, lending libraries are now available at:

  • Oneida Public Library, 220 Broad Street, Oneida
  • Canastota Public Library, 102 W. Center Street, Canastota
  • Oneida High School Library,* 560 Seneca Street, Oneida
  • Canastota Junior-Senior High School Library,* 101 Roberts Street, Canastota

(*age-appropriate selections)


Campbell-Dean annually participates in community remembrance programs to honor those persons we have served during the year. Among them are:

  • “Light a Light for Love,” a community holiday tree decorated with bright lights, each one honoring a loved one’s memory
  • “Vesper Grove,” a government Forest Service program which plants memorial trees on New York State forest preserve lands
  • “A Season for Hope,” an ecumenical remembrance service.
