When life is moving along as usual, the death of a loved one can be heartbreaking. During these last few months of crisis, the heartbreak has taken on a new depth and intensity. Our Krause Funeral Home staff wants our Milwaukee friends and neighbors to know we are always here for you when you need us.
Here’s why this is so important: Most Milwaukeeans don’t think much about where to turn when a loved one dies until it happens to them. Then when a loss occurs, they’re faced with many options – and have to make decisions quickly. We want your family to turn to us during your time of need. Not only to we provide the best services, but we also have earned a reputation of excellence over the years.
This is due, in part, to our funeral home being family owned since the very beginning, founded by our owner Mark Krause’s father and uncles. In the decades that followed, we have answered only to the families we serve – not a board of directors or corporate shareholders. This allows us to provide the pricing and flexibility in services exactly as we want. You can’t always find that level of care and accountability at a corporate-run firm; they have their own interests and are often tied up in corporate red tape.
At Krause Funeral Home, we have built and developed our funeral homes and services in ways we know are best for Milwaukeeans. When families come to us, they have confidence we’ll take care of everything when it comes to the funeral, burial, and cremation. That confidence allows them to focus on what matters most while we take care of the details.
It helps that we’ve been part of this community for so long. This means we have extensive knowledge of the beliefs, cultures, and traditions of the people who live here. We consider every family we serve as our neighbors and friends – and we’re told that this level of care shows in the way we treat others.
When you walk into our funeral homes in Milwaukee, Brookfield, and New Berlin, we want you to feel at ease. We do everything possible to create an inviting environment where we can take care of you. We know it’s the little things that make the difference and will treat you with the same kind of compassion and respect we would extend to our own family at such a difficult time.
As an added measure of trust, we own and operate our own crematory, unlike many other funeral homes and cremation societies who outsource cremation to third-party providers. We are also the only funeral provider in Milwaukee to offer a 10-step cremation process backed by the exclusive Cremation with Confidence™ Guarantee. This trademarked process ensures your loved one never leaves our care from the moment they arrive at our funeral home, through the process, to the return of their cremated remains to you. This guarantee – or promise – to you and your family will give you priceless peace of mind.
Family has always been at the heart of everything we do here at Krause, and it’s our hope that you will turn to us when you need our assistance. Whether you are interested in putting your own funeral preferences in writing to ease the stress on your family when the time comes, or you are in need of our services immediately, we are here for you. And our care doesn’t end after the funeral is over.
Our aftercare services are second to none, providing the support needed after a loss. With years of experience caring for grieving families, we know the best specialists, resources, and support groups Milwaukee has to offer. And our Guiding Grief Interactive Online Help, you can learn about the grief process for your own healing or help with someone else’s healing.
Remember, when you need our assistance, our family is honored to walk alongside you. Reach out to us anytime.
