- About Us
It has been an honor to serve our communities through family-owned facilities since 1949. Our goal has always been to help families - of all faiths - through their most difficult times with compassion and dignity. Our new Shorac Family Center was created to advance that goal and provide a resource for our entire community.
Our Family Center provides those who use either of our funeral homes with a comfortable, convenient and functional space to gather with loved ones and friends after services.
The new facility, located across the street from our Wintersville chapel, offers cozy, calming ambience. A fireplace graces the comfortable surroundings that include easy chairs and couches. The serene atmosphere encourages conversation and reflection.
Food service is available through fine local caterers. Our staff assists the family in the buffet selection.
The Center is beautifully landscaped with flowers, a fountain and a fish pond. Guests can relax on the patio and enjoy fresh air and calming sounds of water.
As a way of giving back to our community, groups are encouraged to use the facility during the evening hours for meetings or events. Qualifying non-profit community groups can reserve the facility for little or no charge.

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.
Thank you for your care of our brother, Dave Davis. He looked amazing and you are so kind.
My father grew up in Wintersville, and many family funerals have taken place at the Shorac funeral home over the years (and through a few name changes). The staff is always very professional and helpful. Most recently, after my cousin passed away suddenly, I was able to receive a copy of the DVD with her photos by making one simple phone call. Thank you for being there during the hard times of so many people's lives!
Sam and staff,
Words can never express how thankful we are for the compassion you all gave us during our time of loss. You were so gracious during the whole funeral planning process and helped us through everything with so much patience, we are forever grateful! The entire staff of the funeral home and the Family Center were wonderful! Thank you for making a difficult week less stressful for our family.
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.
