The history of Tuecke-Allyn Funeral Home reaches back to 1947 when Cornelius Tuecke started Tuecke Funeral Home in Guttenberg and in 1955 also established a Tuecke Funeral Home in Garnavillo, IA. Current owner, Rick Allyn, was raised in the Garnavillo, IA area. After graduating from Indiana College of Mortuary Science in 1977 he returned to the Guttenberg area and worked in association with his father-in-law, Cornelius Tuecke serving the funeral needs of the Guttenberg/Garnavillo area and surrounding communities. In 1981, the business name changed to Tuecke-Allyn when Rick purchased the business from now retired, Cornelius Tuecke. In 1996, a new funeral home facility was erected in Guttenberg, followed by a new facility in Garnavillo in 1999.

We understand the importance of funerals and we want the services to reflect the life of the deceased.

We want to provide dignified, kind, compassionate and respectful care to the deceased while bringing family, friends and community together to share memories and offer each other condolences in the time of grief. Our funeral homes are designed to bring comfort and solace to the bereaved.
The family areas of our facilities such as the chapels, family lounge and kitchenette and cloak room are duplicated in the Guttenberg and Garnavillo facilities. The Guttenberg facility also contains service areas such as casket and urn viewing rooms and preparation room.
