History

Andrew D. Ferguson, Sr., started in the funeral industry in 1921, with the William S. Nixon Funeral Home in Uniontown, originally established in 1901. He and his wife, Lillian Nixon Ferguson, lived above the funeral home. The Andrew D. Ferguson Funeral Home was established in 1928, where the American Red Cross Center stands. The funeral home was moved to the Greed revival style mansion across the street to its present location, 80 Morgantown Street, Uniontown (The Edgar S. Hackney Estate built in 1900) in 1937. Lillian ran the funeral home while raising four children after Mr. Ferguson’s death. Jack McFadden assisted her in sustaining the business until her son A.D. Ferguson took over in 1961. Andy Ferguson joined his father in 1988.

Andy is a life member of the Academy of Funeral Service Practitioners. He was a consultant for the Pennsylvania Department of Education assisting in the licensing of the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science’s online education program, and a preceptor for the Institute.

The Ferguson Funeral Home will assist your family with end of life decision making documents and procedures for traditional or contemporary funeral or memorial services.

Many innovative services are offered at the Ferguson Funeral Home, including notifying social security, veteran’s organizations, insurance companies, pension/retirement plans and many other important providers. We contact the family two days after the funeral to tie up loose ends. After two weeks, a breakfast basket is sent to the home and, after two months, we inform them of grief support options. After six months we deliver a pie and, one year after the loss, an anniversary rose in remembrance of the loved one lost. A tree also is planted in memory of the loved one lost. Identification viewings are available for families of direct cremation. In addition to offering Fayette County’s first funeral home website, we are also the only funeral home with support grieving groups and a grief lending library, the only funeral home developing personalized DVDs, portraits and an angel ornaments in-house, and state-of-the-art video and sounds system. We also have a refrigeration unit on-site for extended services, an international shipping service for the convenience of families transporting a deceased loved one to or from any destination, and Life Appreciate and Life Celebration Services.
