Since my grandfather began Krause Funeral Home many decades ago, my family has been committed to serving the families of Milwaukee, Brookfield, and New Berlin during some of their most difficult moments. It’s not just a job for us; it truly is our family’s calling.
Every day, I hear about more and more family-owned funeral homes selling to large corporations. At Krause Funeral Home, we don’t answer to a board of directors or our shareholders. We answer to you – our neighbors, the families that make up this beautiful corner of Wisconsin.
There are several things that set us apart as a family-owned and operated funeral home, and they all benefit you and your family:
We know you will hold us accountable.
We are out and about in the community all the time. There are some families we have been serving for decades, helping them plan funeral services for a number of their friends and family members. We have a commitment to maintaining the good relationship we have with these wonderful folks. We know there is a very good chance we will see them again – whether it’s at a favorite local restaurant or at a charity event. We feel a responsibility to treat them, and everyone associated with them, with the highest levels of respect. You can’t always find that level of accountability with a corporate-run firm. They have their own interests. You and your family’s happiness is our only interest.
We know this community.
Since we’ve been a part of this community for so long, we know what makes its residents tick. We are intimate with the beliefs, culture, and traditions that make living in Milwaukee and Waukesha so special. With your help, when it comes time to plan a reception, visitation, or service after your loved one passes away, we will know how to make it special. We will plan a service that reflects their interests, hobbies, culture, and accomplishments. Whether it’s a Packer-themed service or a toast with their favorite brew at the reception, the team at Krause Funeral Home knows how to help you plan a farewell that truly tells your loved one’s story.
We’ll pay attention to the details so you don’t have to.
When you walk into Krause Funeral Home, we want you to feel right at home. The comfort and convenience of our facilities is of the utmost importance to us. We know it’s the little things that make the difference. We will also treat you with the same kind of compassion and respect we would extend to our own family at such a difficult time. Whether you’re at your moment of need, or if you would like to make prearrangements, our kind and professional staff is ready to serve you and walk you through every decision you need to make. We’re always here for you – like a neighbor should be.
