In 1928 Joseph E. Sass opened our funeral home, serving the community until his death in 1958 when his wife, the late Agnes F. Sass began running the home. Agnes ran the day-to-day operations until 1964, when their son, Norman J. Sass, personally took over the family business. Norman has been a licensed funeral director since 1964 and he takes pride in personally serving families with compassion and dignity during their time of grief. Norman enjoys spending time on Lake Beulah with his family, watching his grandsons competing in various sports in Illinois and soaking up the sun in Florida and California where he can see the newest addition to the family his new granddaughter.

In 2016, Kurt Schaff joined the staff at Joseph E. Sass Funeral Home and enjoys working behind the scenes ensuring the highest level of dignity and respect is given to each family during their grieving process.
