History

It was announced on March 28, 1941 that a new business known as Seger Funeral Home would be opened in Atkinson by Leo F. Seger in the A.T. Hart building. A formal opening and tours were given on June 21 & 22, 1941.


At the time Leo F. Seger owned the funeral home in Broken Bow, NE.  He desired to relocate back to his hometown after the death of E.J. Kilmurry a former Atkinson funeral director.  He is the first generation funeral director in the Seger family and the father of Paul F. Seger, the grandfather of Leo P. Seger, and the great grandfather of Paul A. Seger all currently licensed funeral directors.


Seger Funeral Home remained in this location until Leo F. Seger started construction of a new building in 1956. Pictured are some photos of the construction and finished pictures of this new more modern facility which remains the home of Seger Funeral Home to this day.


In March of 1961 Paul F. Seger became the 2nd generation licensed funeral director in the Seger family business. He became owner of the funeral home after his father's death on July 2, 1962.  Paul continued to own and operate the funeral home over the next 42 years.
