On March 24, 1933, Ray Sheenan began the Sheenan Funeral Home in a one-room storefront on Washington Ave in Dunellen. In less than a year, he moved to Dunellen Ave where his funeral home still stands today.
While much has changed over the past 70 years what has not changed is the Sheenan touch. Ray Sheenan approached his calling with a rare sensitivity and empathy toward families experiencing the most difficult of human emotions resulting from a loss — the jumble of fear, loss, anger, grief and others. Though Ray Sheenan died in 1987, the "Sensitive Service" families expected did not falter. It has evolved and grown with his son Tom, who has been part of the Sheenan Funeral Home since 1959.
Managing a successful organization in our changing world requires constant review of what that organization stands for and how it best serves the needs of its clients. Managing a funeral home is no different. By offering informative seminars and having a comprehensive advance-planning program we can better serve everyone's interests. We help people to be more informed and help them to be better prepared for the future.
We are able to help people prepare arrangements in advance, relieving the emotional burden survivors may encounter when faced with making difficult decisions. While some funeral homes are being sold to corporations, Sheenan Funeral Home remains family owned and operated. Owned and operated by the Sheenan family since 1933, our aim is to do the best we can for each family who calls on us.
We care for our families and stay with them as long as they need us!
Plus, our commitment doesn't end after the funeral. We offer a wide range of services and fairly priced products. What sets us apart is how we place the family and their desires above everything else. A successful long-term relationship with a family is one of our most valuable assets. At Sheenan Funeral Home, each funeral director is ever mindful that quality relationships are earned. Only through providing the best individualized "Sensitive Service" to each person who calls can we keep their trust and maintain that valuable relationship.
It's all about people: We pride ourselves on our ability of doing an exceptional job with every aspect of funeral service.
