Testimonial
I recently used the Princeton Funeral Home for my partner of 28 years Gerald J Nelson. Dean Heins was the person who took care of our arrangements. I just want to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dean’s service to our family. His kindness and professionalism was outstanding. You are lucky to have him represent your business.

Thanks,
Jude Abrahamson

The Williams-Hanson-Kaun Funeral Home was formed through a merging of funeral homes in Princeton. The Williams family first purchased the Hanson Funeral Home in 1987 and then the Kaun Funeral Home in 1994. The present funeral home building was purchased and renovated in 1999. In the fall of 2008 the Williams and Dingmann families partnered to form Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Homes. In January of 2014 the Dingmann family became sole owners of Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Homes.

We would like to thank the many families we have been privileged to serve over the years.  We value your continued trust and confidence in us as Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Homes now under the ownership of:  Deb Dingmann and Doug Dingmann.
