Our History

The Mann-Slonaker Funeral Home has a proud heritage of serving the Upper Perkiomen Valley for over 100 years. The original funeral home, once located on Main Street in East Greenville, was founded in the late 1800's by William Dimmig. In 1961 Samuel & Mildred Mann purchased the original funeral home from Owen S. & Jane Hoffman, the first husband and wife team of licensed funeral directors in the area. The Mann's saw a need in the community for a large, more modern funeral home facility. Construction of the present funeral home was completed in 1969. Located in a quiet suburban setting away from the traffic, congestion and danger of Main Street, the present funeral home is a spacious and comfortable environment, offering street level access with ample off-street parking, and a private family conference area for making arrangements, complete with a casket and urn selection room and monument display.

In 1981 Sam & Mildred's son-in-law, Carl F. Slonaker, Jr., F.D., and their daughter Sheri (Mann) Slonaker, joined the business and owned and operated the funeral home for 35 years. Under Carl & Sheri's direction the funeral home continued to serve the Upper Perkiomen Valley community, and as the needs of the community grew, so did the funeral home. In January, 2013 the funeral home opened a brand new, state-of-the-art computer operated Crematory. It is the first and only crematory ever located here in the Upper Perkiomen Valley. Daniel Murphy is the Crematory Operations Manager.

In 2019, Carl F. Slonaker, Jr. announced a new partnership with Taylor Fluharty-Braxton F.D., Supv. and William E. “Bud” Harner IV, F.D.. Carl and his wife, Sheri, as well as longtime staff member, Stephen M. Schofer, F.D., remain active on staff to assist families and serve with community relations.

Today with three full-time licensed funeral directors, a crematory operator manager, two secretaries and four funeral assistants, the Mann-Slonaker Funeral Home provides the best professional expertise, care and planning for you and your family.
