We like to think of our flagpole as a community bulletin board. Whenever we have a funeral service, we will ask the family which flag or flags they would like us to fly in honor of their loved one. Usually, the flag represents their nation of origin. Some families, however, have chosen sports team flags, others organizations. People driving or walking by the funeral home have stopped and asked “What going on with changing the flags so often?” When it is explained, people say that they now pay close attention to which flag or flags are flying!
When we have no funeral services, we will fly the State flag of New Jersey, and the ‘Honor and Remember’ flag. When it is a holiday, we will fly whatever flag represents that holiday.
So, when you go past the funeral home, take a glance, and see what’s flying!
We were honored to conduct the Full Military Honors Funeral for Brigadier General Patrick J. McCarthy.
Feeney Funeral Home is proud to be the first in northern New Jersey to be inducted into the National Funeral Director Association Hall of Excellence. To be inducted a funeral home must be recognized in the Pursuit of Excellence program at least 10 times at the national level. The annual award from the National Funeral Director Association is based on community and professional service, professional development, innovative and compassionate service. Feeney Funeral Home has been recognized more times than any funeral home in north New Jersey.
Feeney Funeral Home was founded in Paterson, NJ in 1921 by John J. Feeney, shortly after he directed the funeral of F.W. Woolworth in New York City. His sons, Robert and Jack, continued the family business by opening the Ridgewood location in 1956, and his grandson, David B. Feeney, continues the tradition today as the Manager of Feeney Funeral Home.
We serve Ridgewood and the greater New Jersey area including Glen Rock, Waldwick, Ho-Ho-Kus, Saddle River, Upper Saddle River, Paramus, Midland Park, Washington Township, Allendale, Ramsey, Wyckoff, Mahwah, and Hawthorne.
