Our Story

Huehns Funeral Home & Cremation Services of Door County has ties dating back to the late 1860s when Francis X. Sailer owned and operated F. X. Sailer Sturgeon Bay Furniture Store, providing undertaking services as a specialty. Mr. Sailer served the community from 1868 until 1889. In 1884, Henry J. Hahn purchased Mr. Sailer's furniture and undertaking service, establishing H. J. Hahn Funeral Home, Door County's first funeral home. H. J. Hahn Funeral Home was located on Third Avenue in Sturgeon Bay and continued until 1944. Years later, in the mid 1960s, Robert Davis (who had worked for Mr. Hahn) established Davis Mortuary. Recognizing the need for additional parking space, Mr. Davis built the (current) Michigan Street funeral home and owned Davis Mortuary until the business was sold to Sylvester "Cy" Dernbach in the late 1980s. Together, Mr. Davis and Mr. Dernbach also provided ambulance services throughout the county. Mr. Dernbach owned and operated Davis Mortuary until 2001 when the funeral home was sold to Todd W. Huehns, a fourth-generation funeral director who had been serving families as a funeral director since 1983 and Door County families since 1992. On January 1, 2001, Davis Mortuary was renamed Huehns Funeral Home to reflect current family ownership and staff. In 2013, Erik R. Huehns became the fifth generation in his family to serve families as a funeral director. Brock J. Huehns will be the second fifth-generation funeral director in his family when he earns his funeral director license in 2016.

This historic funeral service has continuously provided shelter from life's storms for Door and Kewaunee County families. Our family and staff are committed to caring for your family regardless of race, religion or financial need. We are proud to be a local, family-owned and operated funeral and cremation service.
