Being family-owned means our dedicated staff at Krause Funeral Home always puts families first. With over 850 years of combined funeral service experience, we apply a standard of excellence across all of our services to ensure our neighbors across Milwaukee, New Berlin, and Brookfield feel taken care of in their time of need. Here are some of the key reasons why being family-owned is so important to us – and to you.
We offer personalized, one-on-one service.
We consider each family we serve as its own unique unit and take care to listen to their special needs and requests. For example, some families may choose to forego a visitation or decide on a cremation over a traditional burial. If your family requests a certain local caterer for the reception or prefers an outdoor location for the memorial service, we are happy to work with you to organize all the details and make the arrangements. We take great care to arrange funeral services that fit your family’s budget and timeline.
We defer to families.
Because family is so important to us at Krause, we always defer to the family when it comes to making key decisions about funeral services. Whether it’s preplanning a funeral or planning a cremation, we check in with your family every step of the way. We make sure you know all your options as far as our signature services like personalization and floral deliveries.
We provide family follow-up services.
Even after the memorial service or funeral ends, our compassionate team stays in touch with your family. One of our friendly representatives checks in with family members to provide grief support materials or important information on probate or estate planning. We want to be sure area families receive the best care throughout the entire process.
We serve the community.
We recognize that every family we serve is a part of our larger community, and we are committed to honoring our neighbors throughout Milwaukee County with our family-focused care. Many staff members at Krause hold leadership positions in local churches and hospices and volunteer their time at various community organizations.
Because our funeral home is family-owned and built on family values, we’ll treat you like family. No matter where you are in the funeral planning process, our highly skilled staff is ready to meet your family’s particular needs.
