In June 1997, one of Clinton County's oldest and finest funeral homes, Bruegge Funeral Home, joined Hempen Funeral Home. The Bruegge Family established funeral service in 1872 and, in 1985 built the facility in the heart of downtown Breese at 150 North Clinton.
The funeral home is under the careful direction of the Hempen Family & staff and continues to exemplify the high standard of caring traditions families have come to rely on throughout generations. Over ninety years of strong, enduring achievement has made the Hempen Family a prime example of Clinton County's family-business traditions.
This foundation of professional quality and experience has been a benchmark through generations of service. The funeral home provides a full range of services needed by the community. Your family will experience the exceptional caring of our staff, tastefully decorated interior and the accommodations of the funeral home.
