Founded by Erna Heitner, Bruss-Heitner Funeral Homes has had a distinctive, respected reputation from the very beginning. Graduating from the University of Minnesota, Erna was the only female in her graduating class, and went on to start her business in Wells, Minnesota. She and her husband, Bill, supported the community tirelessly through the years.
Today, the business is still female owned and operated, with Sue Nasinec as Mortician, Funeral Director, and Owner. She and her husband, Nate, work together to serve the communities across Southern Minnesota, and their son, Brandon, graduated from the University of Minnesota and joined the family business to continue the legacy of this long-standing business.
