Our History

Our History

In 1892 the Burr family built the house located on Farnsworth Avenue in the historic City of Bordentown, New Jersey. In 1940 Stanley Earnest converted the residence into a funeral home which he operated until 1961. Bill and Sugar Huber relocated to Bordentown in 1961 and took over the day to day operations. The name was changed to the Huber Funeral Home in 1965. After the 100th anniversary of the building in 1994 an extensive remodeling project was completed. An addition, doubling the size of the funeral home, was added to better serve the community. These changes made the funeral home ADA compliant offering a rear entry ramp, spacious rest rooms, a main funeral chapel with seating for over 100 people, a second chapel seating 75, a children’s area, and a casket and burial vault display area. In April of 2000 the name was changed to Huber-Moore Funeral Home as we continue the long tradition of personalized service.

Mathis Funeral Home

The house was built in the historic village of Medford, New Jersey in 1894. In 1956 Art and Kathy Mathis purchased the property and converted it into the Mathis Funeral Home, which has now served the community for over 50 years. In 1988 an extensive remodeling project extended the size of the visitation chapel, with seating for over 100 people, and added an arrangement conference area, ADA compliant restrooms, and a handicapped-accessible ramp in the rear of the building. There is a spacious parking area located in the rear. In June of 2001 a Meaningful Memories selection room, and cremation urn options selection rooms were added.

Moore Funeral Home

In 1999 this former bar and restaurant was converted to Moore Funeral Home after extensive reconstruction and remodeling. Located in the Browns Mills section of Pemberton Township, New Jersey just south of the McGuire Air Force Base and Fort Dix Army Base. The renovation made the funeral home ADA compliant offering a side entry ramp, main entry foyer, spacious rest rooms, a main funeral chapel with seating for over 85 people, a children’s area, and a Meaningful Memories display room.
