Harrisville Memorials is a family owned and operated business that designs and installs granite monuments and bronze memorials. We have a rich tradition of our family caring for the needs of families. This tradition began in 1968 when Harold Jamison first established Harrisville Memorials to fill a local need.
The business then passed into the hands of Doug and Phyllis Matthews in 1982 and was moved to their home on Eau Claire Road. Our family then became the new owners in 1999 and we moved the business to its current location. Over the years our monuments and memorials have been installed in cemeteries in Butler, Mercer, Lawrence, Venango, Armstrong, Beaver and Clarion Counties. With literally hundreds of satisfied customers all over Western Pennsylvania, we at Harrisville Memorials continue to strive to provide high quality, professional services to each family who chooses to visit our office.
Thank you very much for your help in our time of need. You went beyond our expectations in providing comfort and feeling of care toward our family. Everything about the stone is just as we imagined.
Meet our family
My name is Jennifer, and I am who you will first meet in the office or on the phone. I am a teacher at heart and I want to educate and guide each family that is looking for a memorial for their loved one.
To help me with the behind the scenes paperwork is our daughter, Morgan.
Jim is in charge of the work in the cemeteries. From the installation of the concrete foundations, installation of the monuments, cleaning of monuments, and carving death dates, Jim enjoys his work, but you will often here him say ” I don’t want to do it twice.” So you can be sure that his work will be done correctly the first time. Without Jim, I could not do what I have enjoyed doing these past 15 years.
Our son Mitchell has become Jim’s right hand man. We are proud of his growth and his willingness to work and do it well. I am very blessed to work with my loved ones everyday.
We understand your situation
Our business philosophy has never been one of monument sales as much as it has been being there to lend a helping hand and a listening ear. My husband and I both have stories of loss, as do each of our employees.
We’ve been there, which is to say we’ve experienced grief in our own lives, and we hope that makes us more compassionate, caring people who are able to better serve the needs of our families. That’s part of the reason why Harrisville Memorials is unique in our industry. We focus on relationships and building connections with the families we work with. Our commitment to you can be summed up in our slogan, “For much more than a monument.” So, please call or stop by our office to meet us and let us help you with this task of remembering those we love.
