Who We Are

We have more than 125 years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

When we sit down with a family, we have just one goal: to create a fitting, memorable and affordable service for their loved one. Together, we explore the wide variety of services and products available, as well as a wealth of creative ideas and suggestions.

Together, we'll design a memorial or funeral service that suits their needs now, and in the future. Families who come to us know that years from now, they will have deep peace-of-mind because in coming to us, they've done their best to honor their loved one.

Our Legacy of Service...

In this world of corporate takeovers and large publicly held funeral home conglomerates, L.A. Muhleisen & Son Funeral Home remains a locally owned, independently operated family funeral home continuing a tradition that has endured for over 125 years.  Our family owned and operated business began in 1885 with our founder L. A. Muhleisen. Now fourth and fifth generations of the Muhleisen family are continuing their family’s commitment to this community. Our offering of quality services at the best value is the cornerstone on which we were founded. Today, we continue that belief that has led to our success as a leading funeral service firm in our area . . . your assurance that we will be here tomorrow to help your family.
