We are better together!

As of August 17, 2018, we joined forces with Caturia, Smidt & Starkson Funeral Home in Hastings, MN.  New owners, Jesse & Katie Starkson are delighted to continue the work that Mike & Mary Wise and the team at Wise Family Funeral Home was doing in the community.  Blending the best of both funeral homes will provide the most distinctive and caring service for the entire community and beyond.  We believe we are definitely BETTER TOGETHER!
