Our History

Our Steelton location was founded in 1937 by Joseph A. Wiedeman. Joseph A. Wiedeman was joined in the business by his son, Dennis L. Wiedeman, in 1968. In 2007, Lisa M. Wiedeman, Dennis’ daughter, also became a licensed funeral director, making the funeral home one of three generations of service.

Our Harrisburg location is one of the oldest funeral homes in Dauphin County and was founded by Jacob Fackler in 1865. It has served the Harrisburg area for over 148 years.

In 1983, Wiedeman Funeral Home, Inc. acquired Fackler Funeral Home and formed Fackler-Wiedeman Funeral Home.
