Our story began in the 1850s when we were founded by the Witzler family in Perrysburg, Ohio. Robert L. Shank joined the firm in the early 1960s and saw a need for a funeral home in the neighboring community of Walbridge. In 1968 he opened the Walbridge Chapel of Witzler-Shank, located on North Main Street in the heart of Walbridge. In 1968, through community support, we did an extensive renovation, adding a new lounge and chapel to provide the community with one of the largest facilities in northwest Ohio.
