In 1944, our founder, Emmanuel Johnson, graduated from Dolan College of Embalming and Mortuary Science. He received his funeral director's license in 1947 and his license to operate his own funeral home in 1951.

Emmanuel loved people and at the age of 30, after living on Designated Street, he opened the doors to his first business at 6655 Ross Street. He then relocated to 102-04 East Hortter and Ross Streets. His final destination was, and still remains today, 6653-75 Chew Avenue.

In 1975, Lenora Johnson, his lovely wife, graduated from McAllister Institute and received her funeral director's license just one year later. A graduate of Drexel University as well, Lenora worked diligently with her husband in the funeral business as well as in a variety of community service activities.

In 1976, Emmanuel Johnson Funeral Home, Inc. became the first funeral home in Philadelphia to use white funeral cars. Emmanuel supplied his own cortege of white cars, breaking a time-honored tradition. This landmark change was celebrated on his 25th anniversary of the funeral home.

Today, Emmanuel Johnson Funeral Home, Inc.'s rich heritage and legacy of service and compassion remain; and our commitment to quality and excellence is true to Emmanuel Johnson himself.
