Our Legacy

Lisa Baue and John Baue DevaneyFor over 80 years we have helped families create unique services that honor a life. We encourage you to talk with us and your loved ones about your wishes, and how you want to be remembered.


Our History

Arthur C. Baue and Clarence Hackmann, both well known in St. Charles in the mid-1930s, opened the Hackmann-Baue Funeral Home in 1935 because they shared the ideal of “Service to Others” above all else.

Starting in a spacious home on North Sixth Street, now in the Historic District in St. Charles, they later purchased the elegant Victorian Salvater home on Jefferson Street. When Mr. Hackmann died, Arthur and his wife Viola served the community until his retirement in 1968. Like his parents, David C. Baue, along with his wife, Jill, continued the tradition of quality service to families until his death in 1987.

Today Dave and Jill’s daughter, Lisa Baue, still fosters the ideals of compassionate, attentive assistance to families who have lost a loved one, along with a belief in the support of the community.

Over the years, the Baue family has expanded their assistance to St. Charles County with their chapel in O’Fallon, Ownership of a Cemetery, St. Charles Memorial Gardens, the largest and most beautiful cemetery in the region that serves all faiths, and their Funeral and Memorial Center complete with a Crematory, Reception Center and a Flower and Gift shop. Other services they have added include a full service grief support program to assist families in coping with personal loss, and most recently a new service for Pet Burials, Cremations and Tributes.

For 80 years, the Baue family has been committed to providing the best in life-honoring service, and we will continue that commitment to you and your family for many years to come.
