“Funeral service is our ministry not our business”

Our History

Our History

Thomas and Catherine Marinello had a dream, that dream became a reality when Marinello Funeral Home opened its doors in 1994. Tom and Cathy became active in the community and the surrounding churches. Tom and Cathy expressed their involvement in the community through the Knights of Columbus, Columbiettes, Sons of Italy, Catholic Daughters and many other organizations. Sadly, Thomas Marinello passed away in October of 2009. It is through Marinello Funeral Home that Catherine honors Thomas’ legacy by the guidance of his words “funeral service is our ministry not our business”.

Cathy, along with her staff, live by Tom’s words through compassion, integrity and attention to detail expressed to all families we serve. Our door is always open to families before, during and after their time of need. Please feel free to reach out to us at any time, our open door policy gives families access to our care 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Our trained staff chose this profession with the understanding that a family’s needs know no time boundaries.  Our ministry allows us to listen to all of the families concerns and treat them as if they were our own.
