Established in October, 1949 the first funeral home in Wintersville was founded by Donald W. Dunlope and his wife Glenda McCoy Dunlope at 215 Fernwood Road Wintersville, Ohio. Mr. Dunlope received his Ohio License in 1935 from the Cincinnati School of Mortuary Science.
After working for other local funeral homes in the area he decided to open his own business upon his discharge from the Army in 1946. In 1981 Sam Shorac joined Mr. Dunlope and his staff. With the retirement of Mr.Dunlope in July, 1984, Sam purchased the funeral home forming Dunlope-Shorac Funeral Home.
Dunlope-Shorac Funeral Homes have made many transitions since the original building of the home in the early 1900's. Our Funeral Home has been remodeled and redecorated to better serve our families with the facilities being improved throughout the years to ensure a comfortable atmosphere.
The funeral home has also gone through renovations since that time to now offer four spacious visitation rooms, and boasts a chapel that can accommodate 150 people.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
Dear Sam and Staff,
There are no words to explain how pleased we are with the love and care we received from your staff during our time of need. Bud looked so nice, he had been so sick but you sure helped him look comfortable and peaceful. The staff treated us wonderful. It was so special and personal having Johnny come to the house to help us make arrangements. I appreciate being able to display Bud's personal items in the curio cabinet for our friends to see. Your funeral home is beautiful and we were made to feel comfortable there. I appreciate receiving flowers and the cross from the co-workers of the funeral home, so kind and thoughtful of you. Our friends from Eastern Star and Masonic lodges said they appreciated having a room to get ready for their individual services. Sam you sure have a great staff and I appreciate everything that was done for us.
I am ready to make pre-arrangements with you for my funeral also. There is no place as nice as Shorac funeral home. I will contact you in the near future to make arrangements so our kids won't have to deal with it later.
