History of Kapala-Glodek-Malone Funeral Home
In 1932, Stanley Kapala left his funeral director position with R.F. Bertch & Company to open Kapala Funeral Home. Kapala ran the company until his untimely death in 1947. Joseph Kapala took over the business and carried on the Kapala tradition. After finishing his studies at the University of Minnesota, Thomas Glodek joined the business as a funeral director, and in 1964, the name was changed to Kapala-Glodek Funeral Service. Kapala-Glodek later acquired the R.F. Bertch Company.

In 1978, Kapala-Glodek Funeral Service acquired property at 7800 Bass Lake Road in New Hope, Minnesota. In 1980, the Crystal-New Hope Chapel, which later became known as the Kapala-Glodek-Malone Funeral Home, was built to serve the growing suburban community. Joseph Kapala died in 1982.

Today, we’re proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of more than 1,600 funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.
