In 1910, Philip Hymanson founded the Hymanson Funeral Home in Lynn, Massachusetts, now known as Stanetsky-Hymanson Memorial Chapel in Salem, Massachusetts. Philip was a member of the Chevra Kadisha and previously sold shoe laces and Singer sewing machines. From 1910 until the opening of the funeral home building at 25 Blossom Street, in 1921, funerals were conducted at a family's home.
Philip's son, Louis Hymanson, joined him in 1941, and they remained at that location until Louis built a modern facility at 117 North Common Street in Lynn. In 1965, Edward Hymanson joined his father, Louis, as a third generation funeral director. A few years later in 1971, Edward merged Hymanson Funeral Home with Stanetsky Memorial Chapel of Brookline in a new, modern chapel located at 10 Vinnin Street in Salem, Massachusetts, now known as Stanetsky-Hymanson Memorial Chapel.
In 1992, son-in-law Carl Goldman—representing the fourth generation of funeral directors—joined the family funeral home as a director. The commitment to a high standard of service and the heritage bestowed by his family members continues to this day.
