In 1976, John and Mary Dolce bought the mortuary from the Kahlers and changed the name to Kahler-Dolce Mortuary. We continue to operate in our original location in downtown Papillion. We’re a proud member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

James Kahler began with a commitment to a high standard of service. Throughout our history, we have continued to lead and innovate while maintaining that high standard. Everyone at Kahler-Dolce Mortuary is proud to uphold this heritage and commitment to our community.
