UNION COUNTY HERITAGES 2000 TO THE PRESENT
Heritage Volume XXV, 2016 History of Funerals and Funeral Directing in Union County, Pennsylvania
Authors James L. and Carol G. Schwartz of Mifﬂinburg draw on their extensive professional experience as well as their experience of living and raising a family in a Union County funeral home to tell us the story of a long tradition now in ﬂux. American society has a strong tradition of showing respect for the person who has died by a digniﬁed funeral, when the living “pay their respects” and say their goodbyes. The funeral has, for centuries, been a somber occasion, most often associated with a religious service and a cemetery committal. The History of Funerals and Funeral Directing in Union County tells the story of that tradition and how it has changed and continues to change in Central Pennsylvania.
