Our History, Our Future
In 1965, John P. Nolan opened Nolan Funeral Home at the site of his childhood home at 2316 Providence Avenue in Chester, Pennsylvania.† As the business grew, John Nolan partnered with his long-time friend, Frank J. Fidale to form Nolan-Fidale to meet the funeral needs of the areaís growing population.†
Johnís daughter, Andrea H. Nolan, joined the family business in 1989, thus beginning the second generation of funeral directors.† Andreaís husband, Ronald V. Bohenek, joined Nolan-Fidale as a funeral director in 2000.† The Nolan family mourned the untimely death of their dear friend and partner Frank Fidale in 2003.
Andrea and Ron expanded the family business by opening a second location in Bethel Township, Delaware County in 2005 with state of the art facilities and services.† Additionally, the funeral directors of Nolan-Fidale have served as members and officers of the St. Katherine Drexel Church, Church of the Holy Child and the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce.†
Serving the surrounding community with warmth, professionalism and integrity has been a hallmark of the Nolan-Fidale name.† Now, as we grow our funeral services to include two locations, we look forward to offering our families innovative services that bridge physical distance and create personalized memorials from the heart in remembrance of loved ones for generations to come.†
