The funeral home was founded by J. Gailey Glenn in 1922 when he began his devoted years of service to the community by opening a funeral home in Portersville, PA. In 1925 Gailey moved the funeral practice to Zelienople opening a location in a building on North Main Street at the current site of Mathew Jeweler’s new addition. In 1931 the Glenn family moved the funeral home to a larger facility in is what now the Inn on Grandview.

Gailey’s son, Carl, had been working at the funeral home since he was old enough to carry chairs and in 1940 he graduated from the Cleveland College of Embalming. Before he could join his father at the funeral home, Carl was called into service in the Army during World War II. He was awarded three Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart before returning to Zelienople in 1946 to join his father in the business. During his service in World War II, the funeral home moved to its current site at 219 E. Grandview Avenue in Zelienople.

After faithfully serving the funeral profession for 47 years, J. Gailey Glenn died on February 25, 1969. That same year Lloyd L. Kildoo formed a partnership with Carl Glenn and the business became Glenn-Kildoo Funeral Home.

Over the years the funeral home faithfully served the Zelienople and surrounding communities. After providing funeral services to many families in Cranberry Township and in response to the community’s growth, Lloyd and Carl opened a second location in Cranberry in 1986.

After Carl retired in 1998, Lloyd merged the funeral home with the Zelienople/Evans City based Boylan Funeral Homes. Carl continued to work as a greeter until his unexpected death on October 3, 2002.

After Mr. Glenn's death, Patrick J. Boylan II was invited to become the Supervisor of the Cranberry Township location. Patrick graduated summa cum laude from Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science and received the John Rebol Award for his outstanding achievement in all branches of the curriculum.



The funeral home now has five licensed funeral directors serving the community.
The funeral directors and staff remain committed to providing families with service and support before, during, and after a funeral.
