The Dingmann Family has been serving central Minnesota since 1907 when John Dingmann began providing funeral services in Clear Lake. John was joined by many of his family members including his sons F.E., Ralph, Al and Carl. John’s grandsons Phil, Eugene and Cyril Arnold were also licensed funeral directors. Today, F.E. Dingmann’s sons, along with his grandchildren proudly carry on the family tradition. 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.
