We honor veterans
At Craciun Berry Funeral Home, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families.

With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran's memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.
In 1941, John Jr. and Yolanda Craciun began a tradition of caring service to our families and friends in the Cleveland area. The original Craciun Funeral Home at 6204 Detroit Avenue was located directly across the street from St. Mary Romanian Orthodox Church, the first Romanian Orthodox Church in the United States.
John Jr. served his country as a medic (North Africa Campaign) and staff sergeant (European Campaign) in the U.S. Army during World War II. He received 2 Purple Hearts and 2 Bronze Stars for his meritorious valor on the battlefield. After the war, John, along his wife and business partner, Yolanda, began a long career of serving their community.
A family business
In the 70s, sons Joseph and Jim Craciun joined the family business. Joseph and Jim expressed love of the community through their civic leadership and church involvement, and saw their business grow significantly throughout the years.
After John’s passing in 1985, Joseph, Jim and Yolanda acquired the Koval Funeral Home in Middleburg Heights, opening the door to a whole new community of people.
Decades of service
In 1995, the Craciuns joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation, and cemetery service providers. We’re proud to serve families from 5 beautiful locations in Cleveland, Middleburg Heights, Fairview Park and Westlake.
John Jr. and Yolanda Craciun began with a commitment to a high standard of service and community involvement. Throughout our history, we have continued their legacy. Everyone at the Craciun Berry Funeral Home family is proud to uphold this heritage and commitment to our community.
