Hometown Funeral Direction

Locally owned and locally operated since 1976, we are Elk County’s preeminent provider of funeral, memorial, and cremation services, offering our iconic Center Street facility as a comforting place to grieve, to offer solace to the living, and commemorate the lives of those who have passed.

At times of loss, it is often a great comfort to return to cherished traditions. To find ourselves in a familiar place, with old friends. To receive the heartfelt condolence of people who shared our love for the one we have just lost. To tell stories, and to slake our sorrow with enduring memories of the happiness they brought us in the past. It has been our singular mission to provide such a space, and offer such services, to our friends and neighbors in Elk County.

2021 Covid Update

Lynch‑Radkowski Funeral Home remains committed to providing opportunities for meaningful consolation to grieving families during the COVID-19 pandemic. While remaining strictly compliant with standing legal restrictions, we are determined to continue to enable families to participate in the traditional rituals they cherish in a safe way. Due to restrictions on the number of people who can gather indoors, we continue to offer live-streaming options for anyone unable to attend a service in person.

There is no known risk associated with attending a visitation for someone who died of COVID-19 if they have been properly embalmed, so traditional options for burial and cremation remain safe and available.

Plans for future expansion include options for safe-distance visitation.
