T he Schleicher Funeral Home was founded at Millville, Minnesota in 1892 by August C. and Louisa Schleicher. The funeral home was one of the first funeral firms in southeastern Minnesota and August C. and Louisa served the area for many years.
In 1925 their son, August R. Schleicher joined the firm after attending the University of Minnesota School of Mortuary Science. August R. (Augie) and his wife Naomi provided first class funeral service in the area for years.
In 1959 the third generation Schleicher, August J. (Augie), another University of Minnesota Graduate, joined the firm and currently operates it with his wife Carol and mortician, Michael J. Arendt plus a very supportive staff.
The Millville facility was destroyed by a 100 mph wind storm in 1998. The Schleicher’s currently operate out of two state-of-the art locations, Lake City, Minnesota and Plainview, Minnesota.
Schleicher Funeral Homes offers August C. Schleicher’s original/restored 1894 Horse-Drawn Funeral Coach for rent at funeral services anywhere in the continental United States.
