History

Established in the 30s, Kahler-Dolce Mortuary has been serving Papillion, neighboring communities and Sarpy County for over 80 years. Throughout the years, families have trusted us to provide exactly what they need and honor their loved ones with services that uniquely reflect their lives. Our communities have placed their confidence in us when it comes to honoring their loved ones' wishes.

The mortuary was founded in the 30s by Bill Claire and operated as the Claire Mortuary. In 1946, James and Louise Kahler purchased the business and changed the name to the Kahler Mortuary. 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.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Emily was amazing before, during and after the service. We appreciate the calls to see if we had any other needs after the service as well. Emily was super flexible with our wants and how we chose to proceed with services. She honestly could not have been more kind and sensitive to how we wanted things done."

"Kinda pricey for a direct cremation and no cemetery costs (military). Products and services offered were industry standard (overpriced). This was expected, since wedding and funerals are highly inflated."

"When you lose a loved one, planned or sudden, the process of planning a service that is perfect for the loved one, is hard when emotions are raw. From the minute we arrived to plan my dad's service, Pat and the team were compassionate and explained every decision that needed to be made. We (obviously) provided the personal items like pictures, outf

its, etc., and they took care of the rest. They had our backs and we were able to enjoy the stories of our father at the visitation, funeral, and cemetery service. Pat even arranged military honors at the cemetery for my dad, which was the perfect end to a celebration of my dad's life."

"When our mother passed away, our experience was a 10+ on a scale of 1-10. Emily was very kind, compassionate, knowledgeable and accommodating in helping us through the process. We highly recommend the care and services of Kahler-Dolce."
