From April of 1982, our founder, the late Frank C. Videon, Sr., has established the standard for funeral home staff to provide compassion and efficiency to families utilizing our services in the time of need. This tradition of personal service has characterized the reputation of the Frank C. Videon Funeral Home within and without the Marple-Newtown community.
Funeral services are deeply embedded in our culture and unique history. Variations in mores and traditions reflect multiple values and beliefs. One comon goal remains true for all fo them - the desire to honor the life and memory of your loved one. Whether you select either a traditional funeral service (a service with the body present) or a Memorial Service (the body is not present), our experienced Funeral Directors will assist and guide you through the arrangement/planning process. The various items of newspaper notices, obituaries, florist, casket/urn selection, clergy, designating charitable donations, among other considerations will be thoroughly discussed.
Pre-planning your or your loved one's funeral is also available. Upon arranging a funeral service at the time of need, many family members have experienced the difficulty of decision-making during a period of stress and grief. Rather, through pre-planning, families have the advantage of time to consider and discuss funeral alternatives.
The succession of David T. Videon as owner and operator assures the continuation of the Frank C. Videon standard of efficienctly accommodating families' needs. We invite you to visit or call, to tour our facility, and to utilize our advice and counsel to meet your expectations for a most personal service.
