Chilsons buy Maresh Funeral Home in Silver Lake
By Julie Yurek
Kevin and Tami Chilson, owners of Chilson Funeral Chapel of Winsted, are the new owners of Maresh Funeral Home in Silver Lake.
The sale took place last Monday, Tami said.
The Maresh Funeral Home was owned and operated by Bruce and Wendy Maresh of Silver Lake. Wendy had been running the business since Bruce's sudden death in July 2002.
The Johnson and McBride Funeral Home in Glencoe assisted the Maresh Funeral Home with funerals after Bruce's death.
The Silver Lake funeral home's name will remain Maresh Funeral Home, Tami said.
Part-time employee Jim Jurek will continue to work at the home, Kevin said. Jurek was a part-time employee with the Mareshes.
"I don't anticipate any changes to the business," Kevin said.
The Chilsons own and operate two funeral homes in McLeod County and two in Wright County.
