Joseph L. Watson is the funeral director and has been working in funeral service for over 25 years. His family owned and operated the Neal and York Funeral Home, formerly in Gorham, Maine and Kezar Falls, Maine for many years. The Cornish, Maine location has the unique luxury of having a spectacular view of the foothills of the White Mountains in the chapel itself. The view offers a comfortable and soothing view no matter what the season or what the Maine weather may be doing outside. Many have commented on the peacefulness of being able to look past the casket at the beautiful Maine wilderness.
Joseph "Jody" Watson owns, operates and lives above the funeral home at 71 Maple Street (Rt. 25) along with his wife Jane, stepdaughter Sydney, dog Lucy and cat Maggie.
Jody's mother, Donna Towle, who has also lived and worked in the funeral business for many years, and is a licensed attendant, is there to lend a helping hand both to her son, and to grieving families in her special, kind way.
Charles Eldridge is another licensed funeral attendant and there to help throughout the funeral services.
