At Helke Funeral Home & Cremation Services, we have been caring for the needs of families in Wausau and the surrounding area since 1874.
Our large facility has been updated over the years, and is handicapped accessible. We are centrally located on 302 Spruce Street, and have ample parking for the community.
We offer all types of services, enabling families to memorialize their loved one with a funeral or memorial service, utilizing earth burial, entombment, or cremation. The professional and experienced staff is always available to meet with and assist families in creating a special ceremony to reflect the life of a loved one.
To help personalize your loved one’s service, we are able to create customized memorial folders, stunning video tributes to show before, during or after your service, as well as online through our website. Our hope is that that friends and family members will come to cherish the memorial for years to come.
We also offer funeral and memorial webcasting, which enables family and friends who are not able to attend the service, to view your loved one’s funeral or memorial service anywhere in the world. We are equipped to record a video of the service and make it available on your loved ones memorial online.
In addition to funeral services, memorial services, and personalization, we also offer professional assistance in pre-planning a funeral, which helps loved ones plan a celebration that is both meaningful and comforting to survivors. Although it is sometimes difficult for families to discuss the topic of funeral arrangements, our experience has been that after a pre-planning meeting, people feel a sense of peace, knowing they have taken care of so many important decisions.
Finally, because consumer education is an important focus for our staff, we are happy to provide presentations on many topics relating to funeral service and planning ahead. Our funeral home has been host to many tours from local schools, church groups, hospice, clergy, etc. If you are interested in organizing a group tour or educational seminar.
You are always welcome to stop by to visit with our staff, or to take a tour of our facility.
At Helke Funeral Home and Cremation Services, our pledge is to provide the highest quality of caring funeral service to every family we serve - now, and far into the future.
