Daniel O. McCauley, who was a tank setter in the oil fields before entering the funeral business, established The McCauley Funeral Home in 1902. The Funeral Home was originally located on Federal Street for a short period of time. Daniel along with his wife, the former Nora Lynch, moved the business to Himrod Avenue from 1902 to 1938.
After the death of Daniel McCauley, his wife along with their son, William D. McCauley acquired a home on Elm Street and conducted business there from 1938 to 1951. The funeral home continued under the direction of William D. McCauley and his brother Donald, who ran the operation while William served in the Army during World War II.
Returning from service, William D. along with his wife the former Terese G. Ferreri purchased the Squire Estate on Broadway from the Leedy family in the fall of 1951. Upon extensive work, William and Terese opened the location in the spring of 1952. The home is on the National Registrar of Historic Places.
The McCauley Funeral Home continues to operate out of the Broadway location under the direction of Paul M. McCauley and Patricia McCauley Guarnieri, son and daughter of William D. and Terese G. McCauley. The McCauley's have a wonderful staff led by Lennie Gessler, who is a licensed funeral director and William Schaper; between them they have over 70 years of service in the funeral industry along with Paul's wife the former JoAnne D. Hura.
Opened in 1990 and located within The McCauley Funeral Home is the William D. McCauley Memorial Library, which is a collection of books and literature on aspects of grief and related material and is available to the community.
Dedicated to the highest ideals of the profession, The McCauley Funeral Home Family and its services are available to all those who seek dignity and sympathetic understanding at very affordable rates.
The McCauley Funeral Home Family has had the privilege of serving the families of the Mahoning Valley for the past 119 years and will continue to strive to be the finest in funeral service for the next 119 years.
