It was 1930 when Harold and Margaret Waldo founded Forest Lake Greenhouse. In 1976, Waldo’s daughter Sandie and husband Mick Roberts purchased the store from Harold and Margaret. As the area grew, so did the interest in the business of the Roberts Brothers – Blake, Corey and Kelly Roberts. In 2000, Forest Lake Floral transitioned into the third generation of family ownership.
As the Forest Lake Area saw dramatic growth in the last ten years, the Roberts Brothers began to explore the idea of building a locally owned funeral home to serve Forest Lake and the surrounding communities. Under the direction of Kelly Roberts and Funeral Director Kari Eckert, Roberts-Eckert Funeral Home opened in August of 2005 offering complete funeral and cremation care in a new, first class facility.
