Founded in 1961 by Louis P. and R. Lorraine Mercadante, our funeral home is located at 370 Plantation Street in Worcester, in the former home of the Curtis Family. This once tree-lined street seemed, at the time of our founding, to be an awkward location for a funeral home because of our distance from the main flow of traffic. However with the growth of Worcester and the development of the University of Massachusetts and the Bio-Technology Park, Plantation Street has become one of the cities' major arteries for commerce.
We stand as a tribute to those who have come before us and labored to create this area of the city and we pay tribute to them and their families by offering a gracious home-like atmosphere where those memories can be shared.
Today, Kevin L. Mercadante, Stephen F. Gemelli, Michelle L. Elworthy and Michael J. Farrow and their caring staff, continue that tradition established in 1961.
Our contribution to the community goes far beyond the funeral service. We know that the funeral itself is only the first step in the grieving and healing process. In the weeks and months that follow, we continue to serve by keeping in touch and offering resources of comfort during the difficult times, as they desire.
