Greg Wenner is a second generation funeral director following in his fathers footsteps. Greg grew up in the funeral business and graduated from Foley High School in 1985 and the University of Minnesota, Program of Mortuary Science in 1996. Greg and his wife Tara have been married nearly 25 years and have three children. Greg is a committed community member and takes great pride in his hometown. Greg spends any free time hunting and fishing with his family.
The services provided by the Foley Funeral Home and its employees encompass a large area, as many individuals prefer to come back to the area they may have grown up in or have roots in still today. Foley's large rural area brings Greg and his employees in contact with many out-lying areas and church communities. "Clients come to the funeral home with so many questions and sometimes feel burdened with the unknown", Greg says, "most people don't understand how many decisions there are to be made, and they shouldn't. That's what we are here for". We sincerely hope that the need for a funeral never comes, but with life we also know that death does occur. The service and attention to detail is what separates the Foley Funeral Home from others in the area. We are ready to serve.
