All aspects relating to the funeral are handled by our family so you and your family will have peace of mind during a difficult time.

The Donohue Funeral Home is family owned and has been in operation since 1898. We currently have six locations in Delaware and Chester County which are staffed by three generations of the Donohue family and tenured associates who work diligently to ensure that your family is treated with the dignity and compassion you deserve. When you call, the telephone is always answered by a member of the funeral home staff or a Donohue family member. We do not use an answering service. Our staff is always professional in appearance and demeanor.
