Steeped in Tradition

Farber & Otteman Funeral Home was established in 1943 when, upon the untimely death of Mr. A.G. Neal, Arlin Otteman of Sac City and Charles L. Farber of Lake City, purchased Mr. Neal's business.

In 1954, Mr. Farber and Mr. Otteman realized they could offer more efficient service with up-to-date equipment by serving several locations and utilizing the equipment between the various funeral homes. In addition to the original Sac City location, Farber & Otteman Funeral Homes were then established in Schaller, Storm Lake, Lake View, Newell and Wall Lake with the Odebolt location following in 1965.

When Mr. Farber retired in 1965, Mr. and Mrs. Otteman purchased his interest and operated the funeral homes for many years. In 1980 a corporation was set up which included Arlin E. Otteman as President; J. Richard Seger, Vice President; Roderick G. Sorensen, Secretary; and Ronald J. Nelson, Treasurer. All four owners of the corporation operated the funeral homes.
