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.
The original Corrigan Funeral Home was founded in 1937 by Lester “Les,” Leslie “Mike” and their sister, Bea Corrigan, with her husband, John J. “Jack” Rae—who changed his name to Corrigan so it matched the business. Les and Mike put their sister through school, and Bea became one of the first women in Ohio to get her funeral director and embalming license. The funeral home started at 14768 Lorain Avenue in Cleveland.
Growth and expansion
In 1948, the family decided to branch out to Fairview Park, Ohio, called Parkview at the time. The property was acquired at 20820 Lorain Road, and John and Bea were allowed to move into the converted house and lived on the 2nd floor for several years with their family. In 1961, it was decided to demolish the converted house and build a new state-of-the-art funeral home, producing the timeless building visitors see now. The building was designed to blend with Fairview Park City Hall across the street and later with the board of education building that was next door.
A West Park landmark
The original Corrigan homestead was a 6-acre farm on the property that is now Fairview General Hospital. The family moved from the farm into the large white house at the corner of Claire and Rocky River Drive. That house had bluish commercial windows installed at the same time the funeral home had its windows replaced. It is a West Park landmark, and many in the area still refer to it as the "Corrigan Home."
In 2006, the Corrigan Funeral Home became a proud member of the Dignity ® network, and in 2009, the Craciun name was added to the Corrigan buildings.
