Imagine a funeral reception where friends and family are able to enjoy your grandmother’s favorite Sunday dinner – baked chicken with mashed potatoes and her famous chocolate cake – then hand out recipe cards after the meal as a meaningful takeaway. Or maybe to commemorate your cousin, the world’s biggest Packers fan, you watch game highlights on our 80-inch televisions, followed by a video tribute. Picture all of you, sharing story after story about your loved one using our state-of-the-art A/V system. And since we have a full-service bar, you can end with a toast featuring your loved one’s favorite drink. If you include a funeral reception in your prearrangements – you get to tell your story own with a reception.
Our caring team at Krause Funeral Home knows that saying goodbye is never easy, but honoring a life in a personal way is a valuable step in the grieving process. Funerals bring people together who may not have seen each other for a long time, and a funeral reception gives them the opportunity to talk, laugh, cry, and reconnect.
The team at Krause can create the perfect reception at any our four Milwaukee locations or at a location of your choosing. We handle all the details including set up, ordering food, serving, and clean up, so you can be fully present with family and friends.
Our facilities in Brookfield, New Berlin or on Capitol Drive and Brown Deer Road in Milwaukee are carefully designed and decorated with your family’s comfort and convenience in mind. We can accommodate groups of all sizes, whether you’re envisioning a beautifully catered meal for 150 or a casual gathering for family and close friends. No matter the size, our priority is to design a reception that reflects the uniqueness of your loved one.
We have decades of experience listening to and advising families as to how they can best remember, honor, and celebrate life. We want to make sure you know all your options, so reach out to our expert reception team today.
