About us

A Family History The Ferguson Funeral Home was founded by Andrew D. Ferguson Sr., in Uniontown, Pennsylvania more than 90 years ago. The newspaper described the senior Ferguson as being “a community leader and a truly caring professional.” In 1961, Andrew D. Ferguson Jr., took over the responsibilities of the funeral home and continued the tradition of friendly, caring service. In 1988, the third generation joined in, preparing for dramatically changing times in the funeral industry. The tradition carries on today as the Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home & Crematories, Inc., is a proud fifth-generation, family owned and operated business with locations in Uniontown and Smithfield.

We care about the people in our community and continuously strive to offer services that help guide families through life’s most important transition, with trust, compassion and care. Read more about our family by clicking here.

In addition to our Uniontown location, we have extended our services to the Smithfield community and now operate the Ferguson-Brownfield Funeral Home & Crematories, Inc.


The 8,200 square foot handicapped-accessible mansion, located in Uniontown, was built in 1900, and houses a library and resource center, pre-planning office and conference room, along with several reception areas and lounges. It also has a sheltered portico for weather-free entry. The Victorian manor offers a family oriented atmosphere, preserving the tradition of dignity and integrity on which the Ferguson family pride themselves.

Maust, Karen
Karen Marie Maust, formerly of Uniontown, now of Conemaugh, went home to be with her precious Savior on July 10, 2024. Her husband dear Roland of 50 years was by her side. Eldest daughter of Arthur and Jennie Lee Essig of Massillon, Ohio, she was a 1972 Jackson High School graduate, and attended Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. A lifelong scholar, she served as librarian at both graduate and public levels. She loved sharing God’s Word. A masterful teacher, she skillfully led many women into a deeper understanding of the Bible. Whether in small groups or in settings of over 100 ladies, she had a rare ability to open up the Word of God. Another passion was ministering side-by-side with her husband. Whether teaching pastors’ wives in the Central African Republic, helping restart a church on the Aleutian Island of Akutan, or else recording camper salvation decisions in her “Lamb’s Book of Life” register, she was fervently committed to serving the Lord. The Mausts were in the process of relocating to radio station KCAM in Glennallen, Alaska, as radio missionaries when God called her home. Finally, she was a passionate wife and mother. Under her care, her three sons grew into pillars of their communities, serving as director of paramedic care (Russell), an Arctic Barnabas pilot (Jason), and a chef (Brian). And she faithfully stood by her husband from his days as a security guard to becoming a longtime pastor and an award-winning radio broadcaster involved in international ministry. She’s survived by her husband Roland of Conemaugh and three sons: Russell (Chrissy) of Kelley’s Island, Ohio; Jason (Anita) of Kenai, Alaska; and Brian (Charlotte) of Kelley’s Island. Her grandchildren include Kaitlyn Maust, Caleb Maust, Christopher Maust, and Jacey Tong. And grandson Corban Maust (Karissa) expects great-granddaughter Eden Rose Maust’s imminent arrival. Also surviving her are siblings Karlene Bowen, Jay Essig, Lori Devin, Kevin Essig, Wendy Andriotis, and Aaron Essig, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Two memorial services will be held, the 1st at the Conemaugh Grace Brethren Church, corner of Oak and 2nd Street, Conemaugh, Pennsylvania, on Sunday, July 21 at 4:00 PM.
