Four generations of funeral care


Funeral homes have been in Art Dingmann’s family for years, tracing back to his father and grandfather. He started working at the funeral home in Kimball, bought the Maple Lake location in 1976 and adding the Annandale location in 1980.
Though he and his wife, Marlene, have retired from their primary roles at Dingmann Funeral Care Burial & Cremation Services, it will continue as a family business. Their son, Brian, and daughter-in-law, Dana, officially took ownership of the business on July 1.
Passing the torch
“It feels good to pass it on,” Art said. “I know the business is in good hands.”
Brian said his parents helped make the transition go smoothly.
“Mom and dad laid things out to make it easy to carry the torch,” he said. “As far as taking it on, we’ve been looking forward to it.”
Brian and Dana appreciate the vote of confidence from Art, Marlene and the community as a whole.
