Why choose Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski?

...Because Our Family is Your Family...
Family Owned vs. Corporate Owned

    When choosing a funeral home, you may want to research whether or not the business is owned by a local family or run by a large corporation.
There is a difference.
    During the past twenty years, publicly-owned corporations have been consolidating the funeral business similarly to what has occurred in other businesses. Recently, this trend has reversed because the corporate-owned funeral homes have simply not measured up to the service that families receive from family-owned funeral homes.
    For generations funeral services have been provided by local families who have deep roots in their community. When dealing with such an important event in your families life, turning to a funeral director whom you know and trust can make a world of difference.
      Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home is the best in the business. We will give you the personal attention, outstanding professionalism, and caring that you deserve.  We will be there for you after the funeral is over to provide you the extra support that only generations of service can cultivate. 



Whelan Bros. & Hulchanski Funeral Home has been family owned & operated locally since 1933.
