In 1955 Forrest E. Zeis opened Zeis Funeral Home on Detroit Ave. in Lakewood. Realizing a need for a comfortable, attractive facility dedicated to serving families that have lost a loved one, Forrest E. Zeis established a true home setting while not forsaking any of the modern amenities that provide comfort and convenience to families seeking refuge during their time of loss.
In 1979 the mortuary was acquired by the McGreevey family. Fifty plus years since opening our doors to the community, Jack & Chad McGreevey, Byron Spooner, Charles Buelow, and Daniel Berry continue to convey that feeling of dedicated private personal service of uncompromising quality.
LOCALLY FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED SINCE INCEPTION; McGreevey Funeral Service has consistently provided compassionate service in matchless convenient facilities at a cost significantly less than the mega conglomerates in the community.
In 2015 the McGreevey Family partnered with Daniel Berry and Donald Martens and Sons Funeral Home in Westlake to open the Berry-McGreevey and Donald Martens and Sons Funeral Home and Cremation Service located at 26691 Detroit Rd. Westlake, OH 44145.
