We Take a Great Amount of Pride in What We Do
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 celebration 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.
Jeff Ruediger, a native of Ashwaubenon, became the new owner of Marnocha Funeral Home on April 1, 2021. He and his wife, Nikki, their two boys, Brooks and Miles, and their English Springer, Piper have enjoyed becoming a part of the community and are happy to call Pulaski their home. Jeff is a member of the Pulaski Lions Club and, when work allows, helps the coaches with his boys’ sports teams.
Pam (Marnocha) Janssen
Pam has been a licensed funeral director since 1977 and served as the firm’s president/owner from October 4, 1994 through March 31, 2021. In addition to 45 years serving the community in that capacity, Pam is an Insight Trained, Certified Funeral Celebrant/LifeTribute Professional.
Pam recently was invited to be on the Board of Directors for the Pulaski Area Historical Society and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Pulaski Community Pantry. In 2020, she retired after 17 years on the Pastoral Team at her local parish, where she ministered as the Adult Faith Formation Coordinator and RCIA Team Leader.
While Pam helps at the funeral home from time to time, she has stepped into the world of retirement. You just might find her with a camera in her hands, trying to capture the magic of the moment, or waving to you as she meanders about town on her bicycle.
Say cheese, or smile, or something!
