About Us

Serving the Milwaukee Area Since 1928

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 2003, Becky (Rebecca) Osse joined the staff at Joseph E. Sass Funeral Home and has been helping families with compassionate, knowledgeable service.  She enjoys spending time with her two young daughters and volunteering in various capacities- especially with Girl Scouts.


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.  He enjoys spending time with his wife and teenage daughter, learning about the Great Lakes, poetry and watching movies.


Our staff is very knowledgeable and friendly - please feel free to contact us at any time with any questions or concerns you may have.
