History

Dedication and Commitment to Serve

Hackett-Livingston Funeral Home is a family owned and operated business. Hackett Funeral Home was started by Fred N. Hackett, Sr. in 1951. Mr. Hackett established the ideals and quality service recognized by everyone in Southwest Iowa. That tradition was carried on by his son, Fred Hackett, Jr., and later by Vaughn Livingston, who joined the firm in 1983. Vaughn and his wife, Joan, bought the funeral home in 2002.

In January 2020, Marty & Kristy Rieken purchased the funeral home.
Marty is currently serving as the district four governor for the Iowa Funeral Director’s Association. Marty and Kristy live in the home with their five children: Kyler, Keaten, Kort, Kasper, and Maelie. They enjoy living in Oakland and look forward to serving the area for many years to come.
