The family’s history in Tyrone started in the Feller homestead at 817 W. 15th Street. In 1950, Theodore G. Feller, founder of Feller Motors, Tyrone and former town policeman, built a private residence for himself and his wife, Madelon and 17 year old son Theodore J. Around that same time construction began for Tyrone Hospital. Some of the excavation from the hospital was brought to fill in the land, which was once marsh and farm land, around the new residence being built.
Just two years later Theodore G. passed away and it remained a private residence until 1962. It was then that Theodore J. and his wife Betty converted the residence and opened Feller Memorial Home. An adjacent house was built for their home. An office, casket selection room and preparation room was added on the first floor and a spacious parking lot installed.
In 1979, current director T. Michael Feller, son of Theodore J., received his Funeral Director’s license and in 1992 he and his wife Suzanne became the second generation operators of Feller Memorial Home.
The funeral home has adapted to the ever changing times in funeral service which now includes more personalization tailoring to individual needs. Recently a play room was added equipped with toys, games and a TV with a DVD player to occupy children during long viewing hours and to give parents a more comfortable experience at the funeral home.
The funeral home has been described as having an unusually home like feel. We invite you to stop by any time to look around and see what we have to offer.
