At our funeral home, we understand the importance of family. We believe in treating your family as we would our own. To do that, it's best you know a little about us first - please explore this section so that you may learn about our caring staff, our beautiful facilities, and our history of service.
Straub, Catalano & Halvey Funeral Home is located at 55 East Main Street in the historic Village of Wappingers Falls, Dutchess County, New York. We serve the families of Wappingers Falls and the surrounding communities with professionalism and dignity at their time of need.
As you arrive to the funeral home, you can park in our off street parking lot which can accommodate thirty vehicles. Additional parking is available off the rear of the parking lot, as well as on street parking. Near the main entrance of the funeral home, is our koi pond. As you watch the waterfall run into the pond and gaze upon the fish carelessly swim about you may, for just a minute, forget why you are here.
Upon entering the main entrance you will notice the "grand staircase" which will lead you to the main level of the funeral home. Our elevator can also be found inside the main doors. Upstairs are our two chapels for visitation, handicap accessible men's and women's restrooms and our lighthouse themed lounge. The main chapel, to the left at the top of the stairs, has seating for about sixty. The rose chapel, to the right at the top of the stairs, has seating for forty. Both chapels may be expanded for additional space and seating. For services held at the funeral home, chairs can be rearranged for seating for approximately one hundred to one hundred seventy-five. When you leave the funeral home, you will notice the seasonally decorated large windows; we feel they give the main entrance a light and open feel.
Should you need to make funeral arrangements, our arrangement office is located through our Mesier Avenue entrance. This private entrance allows us to meet with you and your family in a quiet setting without interruption. In our arrangement office, we will sit at a large table and discuss what options are available for you and your family. Near our arrangement office is our newly renovated selection room. This selection room displays thirty different caskets for burial and cremation. We also offer many options by way of urns and burial vaults. We are here to help you create a meaningful tribute with a casket, urn or burial vault that meets your needs.
