“Our Family serving your Family” is more than a slogan for us, it’s our Mission. On August 1, 1949, Phillip & Frances Schildknecht founded Schildknecht Funeral Home with that mission and the commitment to providing the highest standards in quality and service for each family we serve.
In 2008 Schildknecht Funeral Home added an on-site crematory, Cremation Services of Metro East, LLC, so your loved one never leaves the care of our compassionate and certified staff. Please contact one of our directors and begin planning the services for you or your family member.

Our experience has taught us that when losing a loved one, those left behind feel lost and alone. Many do not know where to turn to or how to cope. Our grief support programs in place are dedicated to helping you during your difficult time and making each day a little easier for you when a loved one is lost.
