History

Kisselburg-Wauconda Funeral Home has been serving Wauconda area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

Our Beginnings

William M. Kisselburg founded the Kisselburg Undertaking Company in 1890 on Chicago's west side at 2938 W. Madison Street.


The Second Generation

Bertram M. Kisselburg became a partner with his father in the Kisselburg Funeral Home in 1925. He operated this business until he moved to Wauconda in 1953.


The Tradition Continues

William C. Kisselburg established the Kisselburg Funeral Home in Wauconda in 1949. The firm name was later changed to the Wauconda Funeral Home with Bertram M. and William C. Kisselburg as directors.


Original Building

This is the original property purchased by Kisselburg & Son Funeral Home in 1948. Remodeling was done and completed in 1949


South Addition

The south addition was built and completed in 1960.


7 Years Later

The north addition was built and completed in 1967 and served the Wauconda Community until 1999.


The Fourth Generation

In 1974, Craig A. Kisselburg joined his father William C. and grandfather Bertram M. Kisselburg, making him the 4th generation to undertake the family business.


The Fifth Generation

In 1999, Mark A. Kisselburg joined his father at the funeral home making him the fifth generation of funeral directors. He and his father, Craig, continue to serve Wauconda and the surrounding communities to this very day.


Present Day

Starting in 1999 and ending in mid-2000, the Kisselburg-Wauconda Funeral Home underwent its final transformation to become the building it is today.
