About Our History

Shortly after World War II, H. Denver Rhome was discharged from the Navy and came to Monessen from Mt. Pleasant to start his own funeral home. With experience in funeral service at the David Woodward Funeral Home prior to the World War he felt the time was right to start his own. Established in 1948 Rhome Funeral Home went into a partnership with R. S. Kelly Mortuary and later became solely Rhome Funeral Home Inc. H. Denver Rhome always had the vision and forsight to see a family owned business where all faiths can be served on a personal level at the time of their loss. He operated the funeral home solely from 1948 to 1969 at 688 Mckee Ave then moved to 1209 Grand Blvd and held a grand opening in April of that same year. In 1967, his son David Rhome joined his father as a licensed funeral director thus putting into fruition the vision of a family owned and operated business that H. Denver Rhome had dreamed of.
