About This Business

Brett Funeral Home was established in 1885 by T.J. Brett on South 3rd Street near National Avenue in the Walker’s Point area, which of Milwaukee’s south side. Subsequent Brett family owners were Arthur J. Brett and John J. Brett.

It was nearly 20 years later, in 1902, when the funeral home moved to its present location in the Peshkey Home on West Wisconsin Avenue. Then in 1942, our current building was constructed on the site.

Thomas Wiseman purchased Brett Funeral Home in 1985 from John Brett and operated it until 2005. The current owner is James N. Witkowiak who also owns and operates the Witkowiak Funeral Home on Milwaukee’s south side.
