About Us

At one time or other, you’ve probably heard “The Dash”, a poem by Linda Ellis. The poem reminds us that we are not just our Date of Birth – Date of Death, but that the dash in-between that beginning and end tell our story, that it mattered that we were here. Our staff works very hard to honor each person’s “dash”. 

We understand that it takes many hands and hearts to help facilitate a funeral. The death of a member of the community and the ensuing celebweddingration of their life affects others in the community and so we come together, we share our gifts and resources, and we care for each other.

We have been blessed with a wealth of people from the Pulaski area who help us to serve you in the best way possible.

Pam (Marnocha)Janssen has been a licensed funeral director since 1977 and has served as the firm’s president/owner since 1994. Pam is a Commissioned Minister in the Diocese of Green Bay and carries the responsibility of Adult Faith Formation and RCIA Coordinator at Assumption B.V.M. Parish in Pulaski. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Pulaski Community Pantry. Lee Schubert, an Oshkosh native, serves as a licensed funeral director on staff. He is a mlee and levana webember and secretary of the Pulaski Lions Club and participates in the Pulaski Community Band. Lee’s wife, Levana (Gray) Schubert, is also a licensed funeral director and was recently received into the Pulaski Lions Club. Levana and Lee were married on September 5, 2014.  She  likes to  cook and bake in her spare time. The couple enjoys visiting with her family in the Mercer area.
