Since 1893 our Wells Chapel has been owned and operated by families dedicated to funeral service.

In 1980, the Fabel Funeral Home in Minnesota Lake was purchased and in 1987, the Lee Funeral Homes in Bricelyn and Kiester were purchased. On July 1, 2007 the Minnesota Lake location was closed. We continue to serve the area from 2 locations: Wells (255 2nd Ave SW) and Bricelyn (102 N. 5th St.) and we offer our services to many surrounding communities in southern Minnesota and northern Iowa.
