O'Connell Family Funeral Homes - Winner of the NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Award. Learn More About This Award
Our Caring Team
The O'Connell family offers a tradition of several generations of their family serving yours in times of need. They are proud to continue their special service to the communities they serve through celebrating a life. With larger corporate companies purchasing funeral homes and impersonalizing funerals, you can trust the O'Connell family to serve you personally. Every family is treated as if it were their own. Thus, the name O'Connell Family Funeral Homes.
The O'Connells offer complete funeral and cremation services and are dedicated to offering families a full variety of options and choices. Funerals and celebrations of life should reflect the family's wishes and be carried out to their fullest. Each and every funeral can be personalized by reflecting the hobbies, interests, pastimes, and stories of the deceased: thus, A Life Worth Celebrating!
Being family owned and operated, the O'Connells are tightly woven within the communities they serve. You can find the members of the O’Connell family and their staff involved in their individual communities, taking part in such things as: Relay for Life, the various town chamber organizations, Lions Club, United Fire and Rescue, youth organizations, individual church groups, and many other activities.
