Dennis Funeral & Cremation Services of Waseca is celebrating 150 years of business on Sunday, August 13 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the funeral home's parking lot, located at 109 Third St. NE, Waseca. The public is invited.

"We decided this would definitely be an occasion to celebrate," stated mortician Tim Dennis, who along with his wife, Becky, owns Dennis Funeral & Cremation Services in Waseca and Waterville. "That it coincided with the completion of our exterior remodeling project was a bonus. We are very excited to share this special celebration with the members of the community."

George W. Comee was Waseca's first mortician, having entered the village of Waseca in 1867. He manufactured his own caskets by means of horsepower.
