Front Row: Amanda Huehns, Todd W. Huehns


While each generation of our family has striven to offer comfortable and accommodating facilities with modern technologies as well modern and respectful funeral vehicles and transportation, our family and staff's top priority has always been taking care of people - those entrusted to our care, their family and friends, and the communities in which we serve. From the moment we answer the phone, to our respectful response to the place of passing, to the extremely gentle care we take of those entrusted to our care, to our attentive, personal, empathetic, and creative manner with which we care for every family in honoring the life of their loved one, to the presence we seek to have at every service and celebration (ever-present to minimize the efforts and any hesitation by family, clergy, and those in attendance, yet "invisible" in recognition that the service is not about us), we are committed to caring for others as if they were our family.  Families as well as staffs of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, our local hospital and clinics, hospice organizations, and churches often acknowledge that our staff is what sets our funeral home apart from others.

Todd W. Huehns

Todd W. Huehns

Funeral Home Owner, Funeral Director (4th Generation) & Crematory Operator

Todd William Huehns is the fourth-generation funeral director in the Steffen and Huehns families with over thirty years of experience in serving families. His great-grandfather, William O. Steffen, established Steffen Furniture and Funeral Chapel in Shebogyan in the early 1900s. William's son, Leonard Steffen (the second generation), worked as a funeral director in Sturgeon Bay during WWII while also working in the shipyards. After graduating from Worsham Institute of Mortuary Science in Skokie, IL, (now Worsham College of Mortuary Science in Wheeling, IL), Todd worked with his father, Wayne L. Huehns (the third generation), serving families in Sheboygan County from their Huehns Funeral Home locations in Sheboygan Falls and Oostburg. 

Todd began serving the families of Northern and Southern Door County shortly after 1990 when he came to work for Davis Mortuary (now Huehns Funeral Home). Sylvester "Cy" Dernbach, the owner of Davis Mortuary at the time, had purchased the funeral business from Robert "Bob" Davis some years before. Both, Cy and Bob have passed away. 

For Todd and his family, coming to Door County was like coming home in a sense with all of the family his wife, Renee Robillard Huehns, has throughout Southern Door County and Kewaunee County. While living in Sturgeon Bay, Todd has been an active member and supporter of the surrounding Door County communities. He is a member and past president of the Sturgeon Bay Optimist Club and has served as past president of the Sturgeon Bay Breakfast Rotary Club. Todd is currently a member of the Sturgeon Bay Noon Rotary Club. He coached local youth sports for many years  in Sturgeon Bay and Sevastopol areas. Todd attends the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church. He enjoys reading and learning about  history in general, the history of Door County and has been a member of the Door County Historical Society.  

Aside from spending time with family, Todd enjoys hunting with family and friends, golfing, boating, traveling with his wife, Renee, motorcycling on his Harley, and following his favorite sports teams, but most of all being grandpa to William, Kinley, and Nora.

Renee (Robillard) Huehns

Co-Owner & Graphics Manager

Renee was born in Cudahy, WI, the daughter of Kenneth and Darlene (Harmann) Robillard. She grew up in Watertown and graduated from Watertown High School. Renee went on to study at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where she met Todd Huehns, her husband-to-be. They were united in marriage on October 18, 1986 at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Sheboygan Falls (where Todd was from).

They welcomed their first son, Erik, in 1988, and then Brock in 1990. She and Todd lived in Oostburg, WI where Todd and his father, Wayne, had their second funeral home, until 1992. (Their other funeral home was located in Sheboygan Falls.) While living in Sheboygan County, Renee and Todd enjoyed singing together for weekend church services and also for weddings.

In the fall of 1992, she and "the boys" moved to Door County when Todd accepted a position as a funeral director with Davis Mortuary under the ownership of Sylvester "Cy" Dernbach. For Renee, the move to Door County was like coming home in a sense with Renee's (Robillard) relatives initially settling in Gardner in Southern Door County (as they were original from Canada) and moving into Kewaunee where her father, Ken, grew up. Her mother, Darlene, was the daughter of Lawrence and Josephine "Josie" (LeFevre) Harmann, and the only sister of Cliff and Wayne Harmann.

In November of 1992, Renee and Todd, welcomed their third son, Christian. Initially, she took care of the boys at home until they were of school age. Renee then taught Kindercamp at the Door County YMCA in Sturgeon Bay for a couple years. She started helping more around the funeral home as the years went by, and then was full-time when Todd and her purchased Davis Mortuary on January 1, 2001. 

At the funeral home Renee has taken pride in overseeing all of the graphic coordination including, creating memorial folders and prayer cards, register books, and memorial tribute DVDs. She always been someone community members can talk to before, during, and after services. Renee has always been there to help Todd and now her sons, Erik and Brock (who are also funeral directors), with anything and everything that needs to be done. She loves being there to support her friends and neighbors and other community members through a difficult time during the loss of a loved one.

Renee has helped at Vacation Bible School for local churches and has been a member of Business Women and the Red Hat Society (also known as the "Red Hatters") as a Pink Hatter.
