Long Description:
Our business was established on April 17, 1931 when Sherman and Helen Mason purchased the C.S. Moore funeral practice at South Second Street and Magee Avenue in Jeannette. In April of 1933 the business moved to East Gaskill Avenue .

On December 23, 1936 the present location at 201 North First Street was opened. The building underwent major changes and renovations that included a new front and two additional chapels. To date, several major renovations have taken place including one following a fire on December 20, 1983 .
The Mason-Gelder Funeral Home is a family business. In 1954, Glenn S. Gelder, nephew of Sherman and Helen Mason joined the business. The third generation officially began in 1987 when Glenn and Carol’s son Randy began his internship, becoming a licensed funeral director in January of 1989. Randy’s sister Brenda Gelder Ribar also a licensed funeral director joined the firm in January of 1996.

Carol Gelder and Andrea Gelder both take care of the day to day office work. In September 2007, the fourth generation will start with Randy and Andrea’s daughter, Sara, beginning her internship. We also have several dedicated part-time employees who assist with funerals and visitations.
