West Reading Avenues Spring 2021 - 10

West Reading Peeps
1967 was a big year in another way also: now married and back
in West Reading, Ed decided to join his father in the funeral
business, while Lynda took a teaching position in the Conrad
Weiser School District. Ed felt he would regret it if he didn't
at least try working in the family business. His decision was
cemented when his father died suddenly of a heart attack in
1971 at age 56. Ed was 29 years old and faced with either selling
the business or taking it over. He didn't want to sell, and felt
a sudden commitment to what his family had built.
His mother worked with him doing the books, and really, he
had spent his entire life preparing for this moment. He was
certainly comfortable with the concept of death, between his
upbringing in the business and his belief in an afterlife, and
now the sudden loss of his father gave him a new perspective
on what grieving people need and how important this work is.
That settled it, and a new chapter of life began. Ed continued
to lead and grow the business - which now includes locations
in Temple (which has a crematorium), Hamburg, and, most
recently, Pottstown - for the next 47 years.

Meanwhile, Ed and Lynda were also busy at home raising five
children. Lynda left her teaching career to be a stay-at-home
mom in 1968 and four sons in a row were born over a 5-year
period - Ted, Michael, Andy, and David - followed by a daughter
- Lisa - 7 years later. The couple now has 15 grandchildren. Ed
and Lynda have lived in their current home in a West Reading
neighborhood near the hospital for 40 years, and prior to this
house actually lived in two other homes in that same neighborhood,
which Ed pointed out to me as we met (from a social distance)
in his beautiful backyard.
