Wulff Godbout Funeral Home in St. Paul, Minnesota, began with a commitment to a high standard of service. Throughout our history, we’ve continued to lead and innovate while maintaining that standard.
History of Wuluff Godbout Funeral Home
In 1884, August Wulff, a 24-year-old German immigrant, founded what has become the oldest continuing business on St. Paul’s east side. A cabinet maker by trade, August embraced a calling of necessity in a rapidly growing community.
At the time, there were no funeral homes in St. Paul, so August served the surrounding communities from his home at East 7th Avenue and Bradley Avenue (now Payne). He made his own caskets, transporting them by horse with wagon (or sleigh in the winter) to the people he served.
As more people sought the assistance of Wulff Family Mortuary, August recognized the need for a new location. The new location quickly became known as the Wulff Block. August changed the business name to A.L. Wulff and Son Undertakers when his son, Arthur, joined the firm in 1911.
A family tradition
In 1934, Arthur’s son, Owen, joined the staff of the family business. In 1964, Wulff Family Mortuary moved to a more central location for the convenience of the ever-expanding east side of the St. Paul community. The new funeral home, Crestwood Park Mortuary—located at 1485 White Bear Ave.—is an attractive, modern and spacious facility.
In 1970, Gregory Wulff became the 4th generation to join the family firm. Under his direction, the business grew dramatically to encompass several more communities, including the purchase of Godbout Mortuary at 560 West 7th in 1988, and then in 1990, a new facility, Woodlane Mortuary, was erected at 2195 Woodlane Drive.
Today, that family tradition of service continues. Our specially trained staff is here to give you personalized service. We hope you'll place your trust in us as we provide caring service in your time of need.
