Edward Beffel, secretary and treasurer of the Beffel Furniture & Undertaking Company, was born in Racine, April 13, 1879, and is a brother of W. J. Beffel, mentioned above. He pursued his education by attending St. Mary’s parochial school and the public schools of Racine, taking a high school course. When his student days were over he entered the furniture business and has since been active along that line. He joined his brother as successors to their father and in 1914 the business was reorganized under the present name. Theirs is a large establishment, well equipped in both the undertaking and furniture departments, so that they are able to give the best possible service and to furnish to the trade all that is attractive in the line of modern furniture both of domestic and foreign manufacture.

In November, 1912, Mr. Beffel was married to Miss Martha Osius, of Racine. They are communicants of St. Rose Catholic church and Mr. Beffel belongs to the Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Order of Foresters and the Deutcher Club. He does not hold to party affiliation but votes independently, nor has he ever been an aspirant for public office, concentrating his energies upon his business interests in a manner that results in success.
