Why would anyone want to be a funeral director? Ask a number of funeral professionals why they were initially drawn to the funeral profession and you’ll often hear a reply like this: “I felt called to this line of work. Helping people who are going through what may be the hardest time of their lives is deeply satisfying.”
For more than 80 years, Krause Funeral Home has been on hand at our four Milwaukee County locations, assisting families with funeral or memorial service preparation. Walking alongside people with care and compassion gives us our greatest sense of pride and accomplishment.
In so many cases, when people first contact a funeral home, they don’t know what to say. We regularly hear comments like, “I’ve never had to do this before and I don’t know what to do next.” It’s in these difficult moments that the empathy and warmth of our staff truly shine. Most families aren’t aware of how many options exist for personalizing a loved one’s funeral. We provide information about all necessary details, including the many decisions that need to be addressed, how to notify family and friends, and how you can be sure your final farewell is exactly what you had in mind. Not only that, we’re here to help with the grieving process in the weeks and months after the funeral.
Here at Krause Funeral Homes, we’re not simply a group of employees who work together; we’re a family who serves other families in our community. Over and over again, we see our team demonstrate selflessness, kindness, and a willingness to go the extra mile. Families frequently tell us they felt extremely well cared for from the moment they reached out to us with their burial or cremation needs.
That’s why we want to recognize the dedication of our staff and thank them for their hard work, professionalism, and the love they pour into their jobs every single day, but especially this week, coming off of Employee Appreciation Day this past Friday.
The nature of our business is extremely sensitive, and we want to extend our deepest gratitude to our employees, who graciously help families mourn death, celebrate life, and begin to heal. It is because of you that so many of our Milwaukee-area neighbors pick up the phone to call us.
For all of your service and hard work, we offer a heartfelt thank you.
