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.
As funeral service professionals, we are constantly striving to perform quality service, no amount of advertising or promotion can produce more chances for extended opportunity than providing quality service.
We define quality service as: "ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND EXCEEDING OUR GUESTS EXPECTATIONS"
All staff is responsible for quality service! This includes funeral directors, secretaries, coach drivers, host/hostesses, hair dressers, maintenance staff, and outside contractors.

Grief never ends, but it changes.
Many people plan for life events such as weddings and vacations well in advance, but many people do not plan for something that is certain to happen, their funeral. While most people do not want to think about their own morality, the time to pre-plan your funeral is now.
The primary advantages of pre-arranging your funeral is to relieve the burden on your loved ones in an already emotional time, and to ensure your funeral is carried out according to your wishes, eliminating the task of second-guessing what you would have wanted.
Taking the time now to arrange your funeral is one less thing your loved ones will need to worry about once you’ve passed. Pre-planning and pre-paying your funeral is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give to your family.
It's a passage, not a place to stay.
The death of someone we care about can be one of the most difficult experiences of life. Words seem inadequate to describe how painful the grief we feel can be. It is often much more challenging than we expect and than others seem to think.
These articles will help you understand something about the grief and how we can help ourselves and others through the difficult process.
Dr Bill's knowledge of grief is not just in theory, but from a very difficult personal experience. In 1983, Bill`s young wife died suddenly of a heart attack, leaving him not only to cope with his loss, but also to raise his 2 sons, who were only 9 and 7 when their mother died. Dr Bill has become a recognised author, a renowned international speaker and seminar leader, and brings 30 years of experience in the field of grief support and counselling.
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith.
It is the price of love.
