The Roy-Hetland Funeral Home building was originally a turn-of-the-century farmhouse built in the 1800s. In the 1940s, John and Alpha Hanson first remodeled the farmhouse into a funeral parlor. (Prior to that, families held funeral wakes for the deceased in their own homes.) In the 1950s, the funeral home was sold to Sherman and Sarah Larson. When they relocated to Iowa in 1956, Bill Roy and his wife, Mary, purchased the funeral home as well as the Osakis Furniture Store. Upon his retirement in 1981, Bill closed the furniture store and sold the funeral home to his new son-in-law, Dana Hetland. Dana and Ginger Hetland operated the family business for over thirty years until 2021 when they transitioned ownership of the business to Vertin (Tom Vertin). Remodeling projects have created accessible facilities and comfortable family meeting and reception rooms.
