History

Chapel at Corrigan Craciun Funeral HomeThe 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 Ave. in Cleveland.

Growth and expansion

In 1948, the family decided to branch out to Fairview Park, Ohio. The area was called Parkview at the time. They bought the property at 20820 Lorain Road, and John and Bea moved into the converted house and lived on the second floor for several years with their family. That was customary at the time.

In 1961, they decided to demolish the 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 next door.

A West Park Landmark

Corrigan Craciun Funeral HomeThe 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 Avenue and Rocky River Drive. That house had bluish commercial windows installed at the same time the funeral home had its windows replaced. It's a West Park landmark, and many in the area still refer to it as the "Corrigan Home."

In 2006, Corrigan Funeral Home became a proud member of the Dignity Memorial® network. The Craciun name was added to the Corrigan buildings in 2009.
