McConnell Funeral Home

McConnell Funeral Home The History of McConnell Funeral Home Stewart in 1902, John E. Welch in 1979. Welch. He began operating as McConnell Funeral Home in September of 2010. Helen C.

The beginnings of the funeral home originated with Richard Stewart who started conducting funerals from the families residence in 1879, he passed it on to his son Harry C. Welch, who worked for Harry Stewart acquired the business in 1950, who in turn passed it on to his son James A. In March of 2010 Dan realized his life-long dream of funeral home ownership when he purchased the property from Jame

s A. Dan, a native of Clinton, PA, is the son of the late John R. & Marie A. (Krawchyk) McConnell. He got his start in the funeral business under the direction of Mrs. Moody, owner of the Moody Funeral Home in Clinton. A licensed funeral director and embalmer since 1982, Dan is also a licensed Pennsylvania Life & Fixed annuities resident agent, allowing him to provide Advanced Funeral Planning utilizing the burial insurance option. He has worked in the Beaver Valley & Allegheny County areas for 30 years before acquiring the Hookstown property. In January 2011, Dan began complete renovations (with the help of his family and many friends) of both the funeral home and garage areas (which house the preparation, arrangement & show room areas). It was his vision to change the existing funeral home building into a more spacious area with a calming, homelike atmosphere for families to receive friends, mourn their loss, but yet celebrate the life lived also. As shown in the pictures on our website, we feel that we have done just that. A new Public Address system was installed, and we offer our families the use of monitors in each viewing area to display photo tributes either made in house or that the families provide. In addition to the above changes, two new handicapped accessible bathrooms were added along with a lounge area for the families’ comfort. Additional land was purchased to provide more parking and the handicapped ramp, porch and stairs are heated for safety during the winter months. It is Dan’s and his dedicated staff’s sincere desire to help every family that calls on us to provide a dignified service as chosen in a manner that we ourselves would want provided us in a time of loss.


Lei lo strinse a se, appoggiato sulle sue gambe. Inerte, n**o e livido. Lo strinse forte quel corpo che mostrava i segni del dolore umano era suo figlio Gesù. Un uomo tradito dai suoi stessi discepoli e venduto per poche monete. Fu deriso, umiliato, picchiato e crocifisso.
Ma su quella croce, lui, si congiunse al padre suo Dio. E prima di esalare il suo ultimo respiro alzò gli occhi al cielo e lo implorò. Padre: perdona loro, non sanno cosa fanno e Dio si placò. Gesù sfinito e sanguinante su quella croce, chinò la testa in avanti guardò inginocchiata sua madre Maria e le disse: Madre non piangere, io ritorno al padre mio. Gesù morì, morì per noi, invano. Che nulla abbiamo imparato dal suo sacrificio d'amore.

For all the empty chairs this Christmas

For all the empty chairs this Christmas

Whether you had years together, or just moments...
Whether they walked this earth, or existed only in your heart and your mind...

They lived!

Remember that. Celebrate it.


“You’re never going to forget that they died.” said Bear. “What you must try to remember…

is that they lived.”

Our this week look at how grief isn't something that can't be fixed and maybe it doesn't need to be.

You won't be the same, and that's okay. It's refreshing to think we can change and grow even through the hardest journeys.💛

As we approach Mother's Day may we remind ourselves that no matter how we choose to maneuver through that day of really painful emotions and deep, unrelenting grief, we are to do what is best for us. Don't be concerned with what others say. They don't grieve the loss of your child the way you do. Remind yourself often that this is only one day out of 365 days, and you will get through! Love, Clara

Happy Easter All

RE: The Donna Lee Matchett GOFUNDME set up by Laura Narry.
I have been contacted by a few community members regarding this account,
They were told by the organizer, Laura Narry that she had given the money to me for the funeral expenses.
I want to be clear that she has not given me any monies what so ever. She contacted me once saying she would bring the money collected but never came with it and has never contacted me since.
If you were a donor I would contact Detective Samantha Thompson, badge # 6411 at 724-773-7400, reference incident # PA21219045.
That would help any donor of this fund to get your money back.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Before the need for perfect, there was simple.
Oh, so completely simple.

A stable.
Wooden manger.
An exhausted new mother.
A terrified first-time father,
unsure of his fresh role.

Before the quest for the perfect holiday, there was a journey. A faithfully fearful passage.
Full of eager anticipation.
Following the guidance of an angel.
By the light of an unmistakable star.
Straight toward prophesied uncertainty.

Before the craziness and chaos of the holidays, there was undeniable peace.
Amidst the quiet darkness of a wooden building meant for animals, not a King.
A baby's bed made of hay.
Respectful visitors, in awe of new life.
Rest, tranquility and anxious-filled quiet.

Before chasing the mirage of perfection crept into our lives.....a grand expensively prepared holiday meal..hundreds-upon-thousands
of dollars spent on gifts..rushing from event-to-event;
from obligation-to-obligation..working overtime to ensure a faultless experience...
..there was imperfect.
Gorgeously uncertain and incredibly simple; imperfect.

An imperfectly beautiful night that
granted each-and-every one of us
the greatest, most undeserving
Gift of all.



A lifetime of the most unmerited gift. Made possible by the sacrifice of a newborn baby. In the quiet stillness of a livestock stable. Under the majestic light of the North Star.

So humble.
So fearful.
So anticipated.
So serene.
So still.

So often forgotten.
So easy to remember.
Such a powerfully tranquil celebration.

Before the need for perfect, there was simple.

Oh, so completely.....beautifully.....magnificently.....sovereignly.....intensely.....redeeming-ly...
