Long Description:
The Jerome W. Shell Funeral Home was founded by Jerome W. Shell, Sr. Mr. Shell had been employed as an embalmer at, and manager of, the Harold S. Gleason Funeral Home from 1945 to 1963. In 1963 Mr. Shell went into partnership with Mr. Russell Ray. These two men operated the Ray and Shell Funeral Home for two years before Mr. Ray retired. The funeral home was originally located at the corner of Morgantown Street and Lebanon Avenue, the site of the present Yum Yum Donut Shop. In 1970 the Shell family moved to their present location at 164 S. Mt. Vernon Ave. The funeral home now consists of two buildings: the former Rider home built around 1910 and the Charles & Elizabeth Hill residence, now referred to as Hospitality House. Over the ensuing years properties adjacent to the funeral home were purchased to the increase parking area.

Mr. Shell, Sr. died in 2005. Prior to his death the funeral home was purchased in 1987 by his son Jerome W. Shell, Jr. who had worked with his father since 1974.
