History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

This establishment has been in business since the late 1890’s. The first funeral home was built in 1941. Our family bought into the firm in 1967. In 1971 we built a new funeral home on the outskirts of Algoma, which was called, Haucke-Schinderle Funeral Home. Then in 1992 it became just the Schinderle Funeral Home.

We serve all of our families with care and professionalism. We make things as easy as possible for them and try to do what ever we can to personalize their service for them.
