Meet Our Staff


Bernard G. Naegele


I became an Ohio Licensed Funeral Director in 1962, graduating from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science.  I moved to Norwood in 1974 & purchased Kleb & Ihlendorf Funeral Home in August of the same year.  I have raised my family & worked here ever since.  I am also licensed in the States of Kentucky & Indiana.  I am a parishioner of Holy Trinity Catholic Church, and a member of the Norwood Masonic Lodge #576 F&AM along with numerous other clubs in which I dedicate my time.  I have been proud to be able to serve our great city.
