In 1892 Patrick John (PJ) Condon immigrated from Ireland and settled in Harrison, NJ. In 1897 he was graduated from mortuary school in NYC and opened a store front funeral parlor in Harrison. As his family grew so did the family business and he sent three sons on to become undertakers.
After Raymond Condon sudden death in 1979 the business passed to Barbara Ann who was PJ Condon’s great granddaughter. She then owned and operated the funeral home for 44 years until her retirement in March 2023.
