Welcome To Wakelee Memorial Funeral Home
Life is a journey and along the way we will all experience joy and sorrow. When your journey brings you to Wakelee Memorial Funeral Home, rest assured we are committed to providing compassionate and caring services. In celebrating the life of your loved one, we will assist you in making the right choices.
Wakelee Memorial Funeral Home provides traditional funeral services and cremation options to families of all faiths in Ansonia, Derby, Shelton, Seymour, Oxford, Beacon Falls, Naugatuck - as well as the greater New Haven, Bridgeport and Waterbury areas.
We are conveniently located just two blocks from Griffin Hospital with easy access from Route 8 (Exits 18 and 19), and directly across from Pine Grove Cemetery.
We want to say "Thank You" to John Zaleski, his wife Milly and their wonderful staff. They are all extremely caring individuals who at your worst moment step in and assume the role of caretaker and become a part of the family. Recently, we collaborated with Wakelee Funeral Home to arrange our father's memorial services and funeral. Being a Funeral Home, you expect a baseline level of support and compassion. However, John, Milly and their staff far surpassed any preset expectation - they were genuinely considerate, compassionate, honest and accommodating in every interaction and went out of their way to help and support our family. There was no pressure applied at any stage to influence decisions and they were very supportive of all our mother's requests, thus reducing her stress and anxiety during this difficult time and providing her with what she most needed, comfort that her wishes were respected and handled with warmth and care. They walked us through the entire process, including all arrangements with the cemetery which was in another state and well outside their normal service area. Essentially, they managed everything so that we could be focused on family and pay a respectful tribute to our dear Dad. Their facility is spotless and comforting with easy access and as mentioned earlier, the entire staff is extremely attentive. We all understand that this is a part of life but rarely are we ready for it and when faced with the experience, you would want these folks by your side.
Thank you, does not seem to be enough to convey the level of appreciation and gratitude that I would like to express to you as you carried out my Dad's last wishes. The sensitivity, professionalism, decorum, and exquisite attention to detail that you personally oversaw provided a funeral service of great honor for my Father that will be indelibly stamped in my memory and on the memories of all who were able to attend. Thank you, John, I will never forget what you did for my Dad and his family.
Edward C. Sembor, Jr., P.h.D.
