OUR LEGACY

OUR APPROACH

OUR TEAM

OUR LEGACY

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, will soon graduate from the University of Minnesota and will join the family business to continue the legacy of this long-standing business.

DISTINCTLY SERVING WITH OUR

UNIQUE APPROACH

Bruss-Heitner Funeral Homes is privileged to serve our communities through our distinct business structure:

  • Family-Owned – Since its inception, this business has been family-owned and operated by local residents of the community. Today, that legacy continues with the Nasinec family and the plans we have to continue serving this community in the years to come.
  • Approach – Our business works to deliver the highest quality experience throughout the entire planning process, and our facility allows us to work as a full-service mortuary right in the heart of Southern Minnesota to best support the families we serve.
  • Expertise – As Mortician, Funeral Director, and Owner, each of our families get to work directly with Sue Nasinec. Her invaluable expertise enables her to provide a comforting, assuring, graceful experience for everyone who comes through our doors.

From the moment we begin serving a family, each member of our staff is committed to providing a seamless, comforting experience. We work alongside families to organize, plan, and execute all desired services in a timely manner, and take pride in managing every single detail from the start of the arrangement process through the burial or cremation. Our team has been carefully trained to cover the details of providing services, explaining options, and designing a unique service to celebrate the life of your loved one.
