About Us

Since 1999, Berndt-Ledesma Funeral Home has served the families of Hartford, Hustisford, and Juneau, Wisconsin. Today, we continue the tradition of compassion, personal attention, and professional service that our communities know and trust. The death of someone we love can be one of the most stressful and devastating events that befalls us. At the time of grief, most people are least prepared to arrange a funeral service. Berndt-Ledesma Funeral Home's staff members are caring professionals prepared to assist you as you choose from the many funeral options available, as well as offer the counseling and support to help you through the many phases of the grieving process.

We realize there are other choices for funeral services in Washington County and Dodge County, so why do families choose Berndt-Ledesma Funeral Homes?

Planning a Funeral

Pre-Planning

Life Choices

Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.

Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own arrangements.

Please call us at (262) 673-4700 to set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional.

Why Pre-Plan?

Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Lower Costs
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.

Immediate Arrangements

In Time of Need

We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with options as you consider making immediate arrangements.

Please call us at (262) 673-4700 to make arrangements in person with a caring, professional Funeral Director.
