Family tradition

Since 1912, the Witzke family has been in the funeral business.
Craig Witzke, the fourth generation of a family that has
been served in the funeral business since 1912, recently opened a new funeral
business at 9 Newburg Ave.

Russell Craig Witzke — Funerals and Cremations will provide personalized
services and arrangements for cremation or burial.

The Catonsville resident said his business will offer value-oriented
alternatives to people who need to make final arrangements for their loved ones
at prices about half of what some other funeral homes charge.
