About Mueller-Bies

Beginning with our founding in 1905 in St. Paul by Charles Mueller as the Charles H. Mueller Undertaking Parlor...with the addition of Charlie's stepson, Albert N. Bies, to the firm during the Great Depression...through Al's children entering into the family business in the 1960's and 70's...during our transition to the suburbs, beginning over thirty years ago...and now into the present, as Al's grandsons carry on the family tradition...Mueller-Bies has always taken pride in the thorough, personal, professional service we provide, and striven to offer these services at as reasonable a price as possible.
As a small, family-owned business, each and every family we serve is vitally important to us. Yet, we have the size and the experience to provide the utmost in complete professional services, whatever the requirement. We believe in providing personal, thorough service, guiding you and taking care of the details so that you may focus on yourself and your family throughout this difficult time. While you may have the ability to do some of the things we do on your shouldn't have to at a time like this.

Our History


Our history includes four generations of single family ownership, and multiple locations in St. Paul, Minnesota and its suburbs - stretching back for well over one hundred years.  Many families we work with share our roots in the Frogtown neighborhood and made their way to the suburbs as we have. We are honored and humbled to have worked with many families for generation after generation.


Our Facilities


We have chapels in Roseville and Lino Lakes, each conveniently located just minutes from major highways. 

Our fully accessible facilities are equipped to host funeral & memorial services and visitations, and include private family lounges connected to the service chapels. Each also features multiple private arrangement offices and fully stocked selection rooms for your decision-making ease and comfort.


Our Staff


Funeral Directors: Gary Bies, Rick Bies, Jim Nielsen, Ryan Rydberg, Steven Tenney, Sydney Thiel, and Steve Weiland

Administration: Laurie Bies

Attendants: Kyla Konfrst, Tim Luedtke, and Cora Peterson

Among its members, our staff includes five family members, two directors that have each been with us for over twenty-five years, and another director that has worked in the greater St. Paul area for over 30 years. This ensures dedication, experience, continuity, familiarity, and stability for those we serve.​ Our decades of living and working in the neighborhoods we serve, and working together as a team for years, offer you a much higher level of sustained, consistent, and responsive personal service than firms that suffer from high turnover, inexperience, and unfamiliarity.

Ultimately, though, it's not about us; it's about honoring the life lost, and serving you and your family. That's why you won't find pictures of our staff and their biographies on our website, because

you're not here for us; we're here for you.
