Our History...

Andrew N. Thompson came from Norway when he was 17 years old.  He settled at Baldwin, Wisconsin where he owned and operated Andrew N. Thompson Furniture and Undertaking.  At one time he operated stores in Baldwin, Roberts, Hammond and Woodville.
   Palmer G. Geving met and married Andrew's daughter Gladys in the early 1920's.  Palmer and Ed Simmelink bought Andrew's business and operated Simmelink and Geving Furniture and Undertaking in Baldiwn.  After a few years, Ed left and Palmer operated in Baldwin until moving to Spring Valley in 1934 where he owned and operated Geving Furniture and Undertaking.
   Donald Keehr met Lavon Geving, Palmer and Gladys' daughter, met at Minneapolis Business College in 1947.  They were married in 1948 and Don came to work for Palmer in Spring Valley.  Don became a licensed embalmer and funeral director in 1951.
   Ross Keehr started helping his dad in 1972, became licensed in 1978 and has operated Keehr Funeral Home since Don's death on December 25, 1984.  His wife Beth provides office assistance.
