Personalized funerals in Watkins Glen
At Haughey-Wood Funeral Home, we believe each unique individual deserves an equally unique memorial service. Your stories from life inspire us to create a fitting tribute to honor your loved one.
You can share with us. Tell us your tales of their lifelong hobby, dedication to a vocation or passion project. From there, our licensed funeral directors will weave those personal touches into the memorial.
Imagine a golf-themed service for someone who spent every spare moment on the green, complete with keepsake monogrammed golf balls for guests. Or perhaps, envision the red-carpet premiere of a video tribute for your family’s film buff. When it comes to a custom memorial service, our experienced team can handle just about any request.
We offer a wide range of ceremony options. You can choose a contemporary celebration of life or a traditional religious ceremony—or integrate elements of both for a comfortable balance. We also offer cremation service options for those who choose an alternative to burial. Military funerals mark an opportunity to honor dedicated military service to our country.

In 1935, Albert "Dutch" Haughey established Haughey Funeral Home in Watkins Glen, New York, selecting a storefront location downtown. As described by his daughter, Judy, all funerals conducted by Mr. Haughey during that era were held in the private homes of the families he served.
Following his marriage to Tillie in 1937 and the birth of his daughter Judy in 1940, Dutch purchased the building at 119 5th St. in 1941. He added a chapel room in 1956 to accommodate families and their guests.
Stephen P. Wood took over operations from Mr. Haughey in 1982, and the name became Haughey-Wood Funeral Home. Mr. Haughey passed away in 1987, and Stephen Wood personally operated the funeral home until his passing in 2006.
Today, we are proud to be a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers. For years to come, we'll continue to serve Schuyler County with trusted personalized funeral care.
