About Us

KAISER-CORSON FUNERAL HOMES, INC., Waverly, Shell Rock, Denver, & Readlyn, Iowa, is one of Iowa's oldest family funeral firms, with current management being the founder's great grandsons. 

Family owned and operated since 1901, this has been our way of life for over four generations. We have a highly dedicated, professional staff to provide unconditional service before, during, and after the immediate need. 

Kaiser-Corson offers at-need services including complete funeral services, cremation services, immediate burial services, body donation, transfer and receiving services, and a full line of funeral related merchandise. 

Since the 1940's we have been helping families with pre-arranging and pre-financing future funeral service before the need arises. The licensed associates of Kaiser-Corson offer community educational programs, and are themselves trained and educated with the Iowa rules and regulations, as well as the federal rules and regulations, concerning funeral services, pre-arranging and pre-financing. We are always here to help, no matter where your need arises, no matter what your circumstances. 

"Show me the manner in which a nation or community cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the character of its people, their respect for the laws of the land, and their loyalty to high ideals."  - Sir William Gladstone

Our funeral directors are licensed and registered funeral professionals in the state of Iowa, and are members of the Iowa Funeral Directors Association, the National Funeral Directors Association, and many other organizations.

Our History 

In 1901 our great grandfather, George J. Kaiser, began what is now known as Kaiser-Corson Funeral Homes. He started this way of life not to be a casket retailer or merchandiser of funeral related products, but to help those who had suffered a loss due to a death. This assistance he offered unconditionally, always with the best interest of the families in mind. George J. Kaiser was a funeral service professional, whose greatest concern was giving respect and dignity to the dead and loving assistance to the families left behind. Today, Kaiser-Corson still holds dear that same sentiment and business philosophy.

We are here to help our families understand the many options available when arranging for a funeral, before the need or at the time of need. We have a tremendous respect for this, our way of life, and have always appreciated the trust and confidence placed in us by those we serve. For you see, when a family places their most precious treasure into our custody, no greater honor could be bestowed to us. 

It is because of this that we continue to pledge our whole beings to serve you to the best of our ability, unconditionally. We also pledge to you that we will be able to accommodate all of your needs, not to just sell you a casket or other funeral, cremation or cemetery merchandise, but by creating tributes to those you love. Tributes which you expect and deserve. 

Please e-mail or call us if you would like more information concerning funeral costs, funeral pre-arrangements and pre-financing of future funeral services.

Remember, now is the time to visit about funerals, because you do not have to.
