Historical Background
The Askew Funeral Home has deep roots in this Cambria region. Founded in the middle 1800's by Robert Evans, succeeded by son Jeffrey Evans, and in the early 1920's joined by John William Askew. Evans & Askew Undertakers later became the Askew Funeral Home, and in 1986 incorporated as Askew-Houser Funeral Home, Inc. Mr. Askew's sons George, Phillip and John Wayne had all been associated with the business at one time or another, with John Wayne Askew succeeding his father in 1954. John Wayne Askew was very instrumental in forming the Askew Ambulance Service, forerunner of the present Ebensburg Ambulance Association.
