The Ross and Carmella DeJohn ~ Five Star Scholarship

DeJohn Funeral Home is proud to offer deserving students The Ross and Carmella DeJohn Scholarship Award. This scholarship is not based only on grades or athletic achievement. It is offered to graduating high school seniors who have exemplified the FIVE STAR STANDARDS of INDEPENDENCE, INTEGRITY, EXCELLENCE, FAIRNESS and PROFESSIONALISM.

The scholarship winners will receive $500 that can be used toward college or technical school and their names will be placed on our Five Star Scholarship Winners Plaque here at the DeJohn Funeral Home. We would also like to present a special recognition certificate during the awards ceremonies at your school if this can be arranged.

Spring Bereavement Series

We believe aftercare is an important part of the healing process when dealing with the loss of a loved one. In order for us to help with that process, we are offering a six-week session in the form of a support group for those working through their grief. The session will be a series of six Monday evenings, May 6, 13, 20 27, June 3 and 10. They will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:00 p.m. We offer these free of charge as part of our aftercare program and they are open to all adults. The sessions will be held in the community room of our Willoughby Hills campus at 28890 Chardon Road, Willoughby Hills, OH 44092.

In order for us to have an approximate number of people, please call (440) 516-5555 if you or any member of your family can attend or if you have questions about the sessions.

Stockings for Soldiers

Thanks to all in the community who participated in our Stockings for Soldiers Program. On December 3, employees from the funeral homes packed more than 25 care packages, with well over 300 stockings to ship to soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan in time for Christmas. Many of the packages were delivered to Ohio-based troops. Several area schools including Sunview Elementary (Lyndhurst), Westwood Elementary (Russell), Gardiner Early Learning Center, Kenston (Bainbridge) and St. Clare Parish School of Religion (Lyndhurst) as well as local businesses, organizations and families decorated stockings and donated contents. Several included notes of hope and appreciation. For more information, check out the article in the Sun News on December 9, 2011.

Many, many thanks to the schools, businesses, organizations and individuals who participated in our Stockings for Soldiers initiative! We heard from some of the units who received the stockings. Click here to read their own words of thanks.


Every third Thursday of the month, please join us as Patty DeJohn, Grief Specialist here at DeJohn~Flynn~Mylott Funeral Homes, conducts our Pet Loss Bereavement Group, a supportive evening for those who have lost a special member of the family. This group is a collaborative effort brought to you by DeJohn Pet Services and Animal Hospital, Inc.

Gather with us at the Animal Hospital, Inc., 2735 SOM Center Road (at the corner of Route 6 and SOM Center Road), Willoughby Hills, Ohio. Our meeting times are 6:30-8:00 PM and all are welcome.
