In August of 1959, we opened the doors to the Wood Funeral Home, Inc. at 5537-39 W. Girard Avenue. The Wood Funeral Home, Inc. was established to provide dedicated, professional funeral services to the Philadelphia community. With Clarence as the sole proprietor and Geraldine as the support staff and lady attendant, we have successfully served the Philadelphia community over the years.

In January 1989, our two daughters, Cynthia Elizabeth and Wanda Annette joined the family business as licensed funeral directors, infusing an already successful business with new ideas and perspectives. They continued in the family tradition by providing funeral services to the public and responding to the changing times.

In 1991, the business was transformed from a sole proprietorship to partnership under the direction of Cynthia and Wanda. Since this union, the service of the Wood Funeral Home, Inc. has improved and expanded greatly. We stand ready to serve you whether it is for a pre-planning need or to assist in the arrangements for the funeral of a loved one.
