In The Community

At Butherus, Maser & Love Funeral Home, we share a long-term commitment to investing in the people of Nebraska. It is an essential element in giving area families the level of service they deserve. This kind of dedication is increasingly rare these days, but so is a family-owned funeral home.

We believe our community involvement is an important part of why generation after generation has trusted Butherus, Maser & Love Funeral Home. We have established a Scholarship Award to honor area high school seniors for academic and social achievement in school as well as in our community.

BML History

From our beginnings in 1883, then known as "Heaton Mortuary", service and dedication to the families of Lincoln past and Lincoln present are the foundation from which we have grown.

R.O. Hodgman, who bought the mortuary from James Heaton, continued the vision of serving our community by merging with William Splain and Heath Griffiths who operated Splain-Schnell & Griffiths Mortuary to form Hodgman-Splain-Schnell & Griffiths Mortuary in 1942 operating from 1335 L street.

In 1944 Heath Griffiths left the firm and the name was changed to Hodgman-Splain Mortuary which continued to meet the needs of a growing Lincoln community. 1952 brought more change when Wayne Reese, Earl Christiansen, John Maser Jr. and John Love purchased the business.
