One of the greatest challenges after a loved one dies is having to manage a dizzying amount of logistics while facing a tidal wave of emotions. What family and friends do you need to notify? Did your loved one have preferences about cremation or traditional burial? Which funeral home should you contact to help you with the details?
Selecting a funeral home is not a decision to take lightly, knowing you have only one chance at planning an unforgettable final farewell. You want to pay tribute in a way that highlights your loved one’s unique personality. You want to honor their wishes while helping family and friends begin to grieve and heal. And you need assurance that the funeral home professionals you’re working with provide the service options, personal touch, and compassion you deserve.
At Krause Funeral Homes, you can have complete confident this will be the case.
For over 80 years, we have built a reputation throughout Milwaukee, Brookfield, and New Berlin for giving families the best care possible at prices they can afford. It started when the Krause family opened their first funeral home on Capitol Drive in 1958. Of course, a lot has changed since then, but one thing remains the same: We are passionate about helping our neighbors during some of the most difficult times of their lives. To us, this is not a job; it’s a calling. Being there for families is what we do best.
Our funeral homes have always been family owned and operated, founded by current owner Mark Krause’s father and uncles. Throughout the eight decades that followed, we’ve become known throughout the Milwaukee area for professionalism and kindness. That kind of standing in a community doesn’t happen by chance. It happens by providing top-notch service year after year. When you walk into our funeral home, you’re not treated as a “number.” You’re not given cookie-cutter options, then pressured to make decisions before you can think them through.
Our staff has the knowledge and expertise to help you tell the story of your loved one’s life in a way that reflects who they were. We’re here to walk you through every step and have the flexibility to meet your needs without the trappings of corporate red tape. After all, we answer only to you – not a board of directors or corporate shareholders.
At Krause Funeral Homes, family is at the heart of everything we do – and our Milwaukee-area friends and neighbors know this to be true. It’s why generations of the same families pick up the phone when they need us. And it’s why you’ll feel at home the minute you walk into our facilities. We’ll take care of every detail while you focus on what matters most: your family.
We know what it takes to be a good neighbor both personally and professionally – and that’s exactly what we’re here to do. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us today.
