A Warm Greeting to You~
The Heeney-Sundquist Funeral Home, locally and family-owned, has been providing funeral and cremation services for the greater Farmington area since 1850. Our training and generations of experience have prepared us to help reassure and understand those who face the loss of someone special, even in the most complicated or high-profile situations.
We pride ourselves on a 164 year tradition of value – a wonderful combination of unmatched service and fair pricing, and would consider it a privilege to be your funeral or cremation provider. Our convenient, central location in beautiful downtown Farmington makes us the closest funeral home to both Holy Sepulchre and Glen Eden Cemeteries, and only a few blocks from Farmington's historic Oakwood Cemetery. Our family is available 24 hours a day and welcome calls anytime, day or night.
For those who have not had a previous experience with Heeney-Sundquist, and are in a situation where a funeral home decision is necessary, please consider reviewing our customer testimonials. Unsolicited, real customer comments are frequently the most honest critiques of our service, and therefore most informative to a potential new client.
Quite simply, we are your friends. We sit next to you at church. We see each other walking through town or at the Founder's Day parade. We tend to our lawns and head up north on the weekends together. We live, work, and play together. We may not know each other yet, but we are your neighbors...and will care for you as only a good neighbor can.

September 8, 1959 - October 28, 2014
She was born in Detroit on September 8, 1959, to Perry and Dolores (Thurner) Moloney. Sadly, she was preceded in death by her mother in 2008. In addition to her father, Perry, she is survived by siblings, Dianne and Ralph Chamberlain, Colleen and John Schneider, and James and Kelley Moloney; 6 nieces and nephews, 1 great nephew; her husband, Kevin Pelto, and sons, Justin and Julie Pelto, with twin daughters Riley and Reese, Ross Pelto, with children Mallory Lil Ross, and Luke Pelto, a single man.
Bridget was in the restaurant business her whole working life and had a presence that would command any dining room or bar. She had a huge, loyal clientele and considered it a party she attended every day and still got paid handsomely for it!
Bridget was simply a joy to be around. She would be the happiest person in the room, and always the most fun to be with.
She loved nature, starting as a little girl with camping trips to state parks around Michigan. Dolores and Gerry Bourke would have their broods up all summer, with the dads coming up on weekends. In later years she loved Up North at the family cottages in Harrisville, Lewiston, Frederick, and Mackinaw City, enjoying crowds of nephews, nieces, parents, kids, friends, in-laws, and the outlaws.
Bridget and Kevin explored caves, waterfalls, lighthouses, glaciers, mountains , seashores, mosses, woods, deserts, and prairies all over Michigan's peninsulas, and from Southern Mexico, to Canada, and Northern Alaska, East, West, South and North.
Bridget was triumphant for the last 3 years in her battle with her rare cancer sino-mucusol melanoma cancer, outliving her life-expectancy by a long shot. She had endured 12 surgeries, mostly to her head, countless radiations, and months of chemo. During good days, she and Kevin would jump in the car, or hop on a plane, and go live life to the fullest! Many world cruises with Perry, Dianne, Colleen, and others, were part of the healing process as well.
Bridget was the toughest person one could know. She has almost 700 friends on the Facebook page, Prayers and Positive Thoughts for Bridget Moloney, (thanks to longtime friend, Krissy Jacobs, for managing this). She has inspired people around the globe by her tenacity, joy, spirit, never give up attitude, and her love for others.
Faith, family and friends are what sustained her and our family throughout these years. She will be missed by all, and it is the end of the Kev and Bridge Show as we know it.
In closing, Bridget would like you to remember her life, and to honor her by doing the following: love your spouse, visit your parents, nurture your children, have meals with your siblings and extended family, call your friends, notice nature, have a personal relationship with Jesus, and always love and pet your skunks, or your other pets. Amen.
Bridget's family will receive guests at the funeral home on Monday, November 3rd, from Noon-9 pm, with a 7pm Celebration of Life Ceremony.
A Memorial Mass will be celebrated Tuesday, November 4th, at 11:00am, at St. Gerald Catholic Church, 21300 Farmington Rd., Farmington.
Memorial gifts are suggested to either the U of M Comprehensive Cancer Centers Melanoma Clinic or an 11 year old girl named Pri that Bridget sponsored through World Vision. Please make all checks payable to "Kevin Pelto" for appropriate distribution.
Thank you for keeping Bridget and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

Planning a Funeral
Life ChoicesMost of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.
Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own arrangements.
Please call us at 248.474.5200 to set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional.
Why Pre-Plan?Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.
Immediate ArrangementsIn Time of Need
We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with options as you consider making immediate arrangements.
Please call us at 248.474.5200 to make arrangements in person with a caring, professional Funeral Director.
