The Face of Funeral Homes
Ruebel Funeral Home
Justin T. Wittenberg
Ruebel Funeral Home is dedicated to the highest levels of service during the most difficult and painful times families can experience – when they're faced with the loss of a loved one. Ruebel strives to simplify the process of funeral planning and ease uncertainties with professional guidance, empathy, and warmhearted attention to detail.
“Because everyone grieves differently, we serve individual needs and will do everything possible to simplify the process of planning a loved one’s final farewell,” said Ruebel’s president Justin T. Wittenberg. “We are compassionately committed to making every service special and unique to honor the life that has passed on.”
Ruebel had its beginning in early 1901, and is the oldest funeral service establishment in the city of Little Rock. In 1953, George H. Wittenberg, Jr., acquired the funeral home from P.H. Ruebel. Today, the company serves families all over Arkansas and regularly goes to cemeteries and churches in the far reaches of the state.
“I’m now the third generation Wittenberg owner of Ruebel,” Wittenberg said. “I tell my employees on a weekly basis, “Never tell a family NO.” It doesn’t matter how difficult a request might be we will always find a way to make it happen. We only get one take when helping our clients, and we have to make it happen when and how they want so that they can fully and effectively grieve the loss of their friend or family member. We are honored to continue to serve the great state of Arkansas, for more than 117 years now.”
