The Willkommen Committee of the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce recently stopped at Minnesota Valley Funeral Home to welcome their newest Funeral Director Blake Stiernagle. Blake is an Albert Lea native and moved to New Ulm recently with his wife Holly and their young son Calvin. Blake attended college in Albert Lea for two years before completing his mortuary science degree at the U of M. He completed his internship in St. Cloud where Eric Warmka (the current General Manager of MVFH) was his preceptor. Blake had been working in Rochester for the past couple of years, but was looking to relocated to a smaller community now that he had started a family. Welcome, Blake!
