Welcome to the Behr Funeral Home Website! Thank you for visiting!

Behr Funeral Home was founded by Norbert and Mary Behr and opened for business in October of 1936, at 1832 Central Avenue in Dubuque. In 1948, they purchased the Alexander Young Home, which remains our current location, at 1491 Main Street. In 1974 their daughter, Kathy (Behr) Conlon, joined them as a licensed funeral director. Her son, Kevin, has also followed in their footsteps and is now a third generation funeral director.

We are a full service funeral home providing traditional services, as well as cremation and memorial services. We can also accommodate your family with services at your place of worship if you desire. We have a state of the art audio/video system which can be utilized to play your loved ones favorite music in the background, as well as a DVD highlighting special moments from your family’s past. We encourage you to make our home your own by bringing in personal items such as quilts, collectibles or items that represent hobbies your loved one enjoyed. Our mission is to assist you in creating a unique celebration of their life and the memories you will cherish forever.

We invite you to browse through our site and learn more about us. We are very proud of our tradition, our facilities, our staff and the services we provide.
