Our family has owned and operated Krause Funeral Homes for more than 80 years. We realize our neighbors throughout the Milwaukee area trust our expert staff to walk alongside them during some of life’s most difficult times. We listen and we care, and our decades of professional experience help us highlight your loved one’s unique personality at the funeral and help you heal afterwards.

We remain a family-operated funeral home in every sense of the word. President Mark Krause grew up coming to the funeral home with his siblings and cousins, as his dad and his brothers were the founders. Gregg P. Krause has served as vice president since 1999. Mark’s daughter, Nicole Krause, is a funeral apprentice, and Kelly Krause serves as an assistant service coordinator. Even the Krause family’s pet contributes, as their Portuguese waterdog, Bennie, has been trained by Mark’s wife, Joan, to be a certified grief therapy dog.

Families trust us to arrange every detail of their burial or cremation with excellence. They know we’re here to help with the 100+ decisions that come into play when planning a funeral. From writing a eulogy or obituary, to planning a reception, to coping in the weeks and months after the funeral, generations of our family have helped our neighbors pay tribute to their loved ones.

We know details matter, and that’s why we do everything possible to make sure to offer our neighbors every assistance with a personal touch. If you’re thinking about putting your own funeral plans in place, we host classes and seminars as a way to explore all your options.

From beginning to end, our family provides full care and attention, so you can focus on what matters most in life: your own family. Contact us today with questions, or to learn more about our preplanning services and all the ways we can help you. The journey of life is something to celebrate – and the Krause family is here for you every step of the way.
