If you’re seeking an honorable celebration of life, we invite you to learn more about where we came from, our vision, and the dedicated people behind our work.
A History of Caring
The National Funeral Home, located at 344 W. University Avenue in St. Paul was purchased by Kenneth and Helen Spielman in 1950 and the name was subsequently changed to Kenneth F. Spielman Mortuary. As a husband & wife team, Ken and Helen were very dedicated to the families who called upon them for service. For over 34 years, Ken and Helen lived above the funeral home and took only one brief vacation during that time! On October 31, 1984, Ken and Helen sold the funeral home to the Willwerscheid family of St. Paul and the name was abbreviated to Spielman Mortuary. As fourth-generation family funeral directors, the Willwerscheid family continues ownership of the funeral home to this day. Their management staff operate with the same traditions of pride, sensitivity, value, and attention to detail that the Spielmans adhered to for over three decades.
