Muehlebach Funeral Care began serving local Kansas City families in the Southtown and Brookside areas beginning in June of 1954.

Since then, they have grown with the community, completed several additions and renovations including an onsite crematory to offer additional options for families.

James “Bud” Harrington, who broke ground for Muehlebach Funeral Care, helped the firm become one of the first funeral homes to offer prearranged funeral plans, which offered convenience and peace of mind for families. This idea quickly became popular across Kansas City and throughout the United States. 

James S. “Jim” Harrington joined his father’s business in 1963 and took over the funeral home in 1995. Jim continued his father’s legacy of providing professional and customized service to local families.

In July of 2003, Steve and Nicole Pierce took over ownership of Muehlebach Funeral Care and have helped the firm remain a first choice for families. With Steve and Nicole’s leadership, Muehlebach has remained one of the few family owned and operated funeral homes in Kansas City. “Maintaining a tradition of quality service is our top priority. It is a privilege to uphold that tradition while helping those in their time of need,” says Steve Pierce.

Recently, the Johnson Consulting Group of Scottsdale, Arizona presented Muehlebach Funeral Care with the 2018 Excellence in Customer Service Award. The award honors Muehlebach for receiving the highest levels of families’ satisfaction in 2018.

As a full service funeral home, Muehlebach is committed to helping every family and individual. The Muehlebach Funeral Care family is dedicated to serving your family in the years to come.
