Readying For Another Century Of Service - The Marrocco Memorial Chapel was created back in September of 2000, when James J. Marrocco and his foresight renovated an expansive building at 470 Colfax Avenue.
This welcoming facility greets visitors with stately columns, a portico to protect passengers in case of inclement weather and a large adjacent lot. Once inside, guests can't help but notice the stately fireplace in the gracious foyer. From there, visitors continue into one of the four viewing chapels, three of which can be transformed into one large room, depending upon individual needs. Other thoughtful features include a handicapped accessible entrance and restroom, a library resource center and family conference rooms. Marrocco Memorial Chapel has a Tribute Program, which allows the families to view a DVD video tribute to their loved one during the visiting time. Within the near future, these videos will also be available on the Marrocco website for family members or visitors who could not make the viewing.
And finally, to celebrate four generations of service, Jim Marrocco has added representations from each generation to his Home. Guests will see an oil painting of The Last Supper, created in 1951, by his great-grandfather Peter A. Marrocco, Sr. A painting of San Vito de Cadore, Italy was painted by his grandfather Henry F. Marrocco, Sr and hangs in the Lincoln viewing room. And finally, the third generation is marked by several statues brought back from Florence, Italy by his father Henry F. Marrocco, Jr. As a result, Jim Marrocco has created a warm, welcoming funeral home,that will make you feel comfortable and invited at a time when you need it most. Whether your requirements include pre-planning so that your wishes are recorded and executed as you desire, or at need services, we would be happy to discuss all of your options.
