Our Commitment To Sensitive Service
Caring: Raymond J. Sheenan founded the Sheenan Funeral Home in 1933, in a storefront on Washington Avenue and a year later, he moved to the present facility on Dunellen Avenue. He insisted the decor and furnishings be home-like, offering bereaved families privacy and comfort.
Dedication: The Sheenan tradition continues today as Thomas E. Sheenan and his staff are dedicated to provide the "Sensitive Service" and caring the community has come to expect. Under Thomas' leadership they have developed many programs and services to meet the needs of each family served.
Community Involvement: The Sheenans have consistently demonstrated their concern for others through community involvement, including Knights of Columbus, Elks Clubs and Alhambra, a group benefiting special needs children.
Pursuit of Excellence: Tom Sheenan recognizes the value of a professional education. He was the first U.S. funeral director to achieve the "Certified Funeral Service Practitioners Degree." He has also served as President of the New Jersey State Funeral Directors Association, as well as the President of the National Association of Approved Morticians. In fact all our funeral directors are fully licensed and attend regular professional education programs.
Offering Choices: The Sheenan philosophy in funeral services is to listen carefully to the wishes of each family member. We know that each situation is different. Sheenan Funeral Home wants to provide people with alternative ways to express their loss so the service is meaningful to them.
Explaining Costs: Knowing the families in the community, Tom and his staff understand that quality and cost are both important. With the wide range of available services and with a compassionate, caring and creative staff, everyone can get the dignity they deserve at a cost their family can afford.
