Host one last evening under the stars in honor of an amateur astronomer, with her own personal recipes prepared and served by our professional catering staff, or bring your guests into our flexible reception space for an exhibition of your loved one's personal art, complete with keepsake prints to pass down for generations. Whether you envision a traditional funeral service or a contemporary celebration of life, our expert funeral directors have the professional expertise to fulfill almost any wish.

Walter and Bertha Wood founded Wood Funeral Home in Chardon, Ohio, in 1909. Three years later, they relocated to Atwater and purchased the Paul Hamilton Funeral Home. Their son, Robert, assumed an active role in 1925.
In 33, the Wood family opened a funeral home on North Chestnut Street in Ravenna. Three years later, they purchased the former home of Judge I.T. Siddall at the corner of Freedom Street and East Main Street, our current location.
Growth and expansion
Eventually, the Wood family operated locations in Ravenna, Kent, Atwater and Mantua. Jack Wood's step-son, Rob Kortright, later assumed operations and renamed it Wood-Kortright Funeral Homes.
In 2005, Aaron Borkoski became manager and our name changed to Wood-Kortright-Borkoski Funeral Home. As we embark on our next 100 years of service to Ohio families, we promise to maintain the same standards of compassionate care that make us the first choice among local families in a time of need.
