In 1867, George W. Comee became Waseca's first mortician. Upon his arrival, he opened a furniture store in partnership with Maj. William C. Young. Mr. Helms succeeded Young and in 1873, S.S. Comee took the place of Helms. The firm remained Comee Bros. until 1882, when the Waseca Furniture Co. was organized. The firm later became known as Sawin & Comee and remained that name until 1905. It was in that year that Samuel H. Pfaff bought an interest in the business and they continued in partnership until 1915 when Mr. Pfaff bought out his partner. In 1928, the business moved to the corner of State St. and Elm Ave. and George Pfaff joined his father in the business. In 1939, Pfaff Home for Funerals constructed a new building which is the current location of the Kinder-Dennis Home for Funerals.

Following the death of George Pfaff in 1962, Walter F. Kinder purchased the business in June of 1963. Mr. Kinder had been an employee of the firm from 1948-1955. The firm name was then changed to Pfaff-Kinder Home for Funerals.

In 1968 the Lindquist Funeral Home in Waseca was purchased and became part of the Pfaff-Kinder Home for Funerals. The firm continued to operate under that name until 1978 when the Pfaff name was dropped and it became Kinder Home for Funerals. In 1993 Tim and Becky Dennis purchased the funeral home and continue to operate it under the name Kinder-Dennis Home for Funerals.
