Jeff Beede - Owner & Funeral Director
I have been fortunate to work in a profession helping people since 1986, receiving my B.S. in Mortuary Science from the University of Minnesota. Throughout my career in funeral service I have gained valuable experience working for independent and corporate-owned funeral homes in the Twin Cities and Little Falls, Minnesota and Eau Claire. My wife and I were able to realize our dream of owning a funeral home in 1999 when Evergreen Funeral Home and Crematory was established.
Eau Claire is my family's hometown. I was born here and my parents and grandparents (and great) lived and grew up here. To move "home" and raise our two daughters has been a blessing to us.
Kelly Beede - Owner & Insurance Agent
Coordinating memorial events has been part of my professional career for many years. After college, I worked for a bank trade association in Minneapolis as Executive Secretary, Convention and Meeting Planner, and Graphic Designer. I work beside Jeff on visitations and funerals and hold an insurance license specializing in writing pre-need coverage.
I have been very active as a Girl Scout Leader, a Sunday school teacher, and have served on various church and school committees.
