Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our doors, we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond with kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Charles Dupont built Dupont-Malcore Funeral Home at 701 N. Willow Street. In the late 1940's Malcore built the current Malcore (East) location, at 701 N. Baird St., which is unique to having one of the area's only oval lobbies, as well as a distinct stone exterior that has been a landmark on the northeast side of Green Bay for decades.
Malcore built the first crematory north of Milwaukee. By investing in this facility Malcore ensured that your loved one was always under our care.
Malcore (West) Funeral Home was established by Dan Malcore, and continues to serve west Green Bay and the surrounding area. Malcore (West) has an oversized lobby and Green Bay's first luncheon area.
Malcore built their new Cremation Care Center, which houses a new crematory, as well as a large temperature-controlled area. The new care center is a beautiful addition to a historic building that families will use for decades to come.
Malcore Funeral Homes & Crematory was established in 1921, and serving families has always been our focus. We take pride in being able to guide people through some of their most difficult days.
