History & Staff
We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
Built in 1893, the George Von Weise Mansion serves as the home to the
Donnell-Wiegand Funeral Home since 1952.
At a cost of $8,000 in 1893, the home was made with separate
turret designs, 4 fireplaces, 3 false, servant quarters, hand-painted
dinning room mural and built in warmers for food in the radiators.
Also in 1893, W.D. Donnell started a business, W. D. Donnell Furniture and Undertaking.
Four generations later, the business is still serving the families of Bond County.
The addition of a ground level chapel in 1978, we have added
a spacious, comfortable chapel for our families during visitations and
funerals. A private family room and private family parking in our heated
garage are two examples of the high quality we offer to our families.
