About Us


Spear-Mulqueeny Funeral Homes strive for excellence in every aspect of funeral service. Each member of our staff is committed to the belief that we are here to assist in the grieving process by offering quality service in a timely, compassionate and cost-effective manner. While families are different, each and every family member deserves the commitment of respect from the staff of Spear-Mulqueeny Funeral Home.

The Spear-Mulqueeny Funeral Homes have been a vital, care giving member of Lake County for over 80 years. The Mulqueeny Funeral Home was founded in 1922 by William Mulqueeny and the Spear Funeral home in 1932 by John L. Spear. In 1975 the two firms merged and now offer two convenient locations to better serve you. It is our commitment to provide the finest service. Our driving force has been, and always will be, to provide dignified, caring and quality service.

In 1999, Jay Mulqueeny and Brian Waite purchased the business from Ed Johnson and John Schafer and have made many improvements since they took over the operations. The funeral home has been completely remodeled. We also added a more consumer friendly selection of caskets, and cremation urns, as well as a better selection of stationery items to choose from. “We believe and strive to provide a new and alternative service to meet the special needs of the families we serve.”
