Warm and welcoming funeral home
With a traditional, grand exterior featuring white pillars and beautifully-manicured lush grounds, Krowicki McCracken Funeral Home presents a warm and welcoming space during your time of need. From the moment you step into our 2-story building, you are met with an updated, comfortable setting featuring an abundance of natural light, muted jewel-toned color palette, beautiful hardwoods and stained-glass accents. With ample parking on 3 sides of the building, we are also entirely handicap accessible.
Krowicki McCracken Funeral Home offers a number of flexible spaces for both intimate and larger gatherings. Upon entering the foyer from the front entrance, you are met with the arrangement room to your left. With circular seating for 10, comfortable couches and chairs, a beautiful brass chandelier and flat-screen television, this area provides a private setting in which to meet with a funeral service associate to discuss all final arrangements.
Our 2 chapels are located across the hall from the arrangement room. The front chapel features double doors, traditional décor and flexible chair seating for up to 60 guests. Adjacent to the front chapel sits a small seating room that is often used as a display area for a loved one’s photos and memories or as a private space for families to gather. Our back chapel is located on the opposite side of the seating room, comfortably accommodates 100 guests and can be separated into 3 smaller spaces as needed. Both the front and back chapels include flat-screen televisions for those who wish to display personalized slideshows and videos. Due to the flexibility and flow of our chapel rooms, we can host up to 4 funerals at a time and have the ability to completely customize and configure these areas to best suit your needs.
For families and guests who wish to gather before or after the service, our open-concept lounge is located downstairs and includes round tables, plush leather couches, a counter-height charging station and small refrigerator.

We have well-established relationships with 12 churches in the area and for those in need of a funeral celebrant, we can arrange this detail on your behalf. Our team also includes Spanish- and Polish-speaking associates.
Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, we can explain the process and your various choices.

We recognize that funeral arrangements and associated expenses can be overwhelming, and by preparing these details ahead of time, you provide a sense of relief and comfort to your loved ones while ensuring your wishes are met.
