Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our doors we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Harrison E. Leonard to Ostrowski Funeral Home
In 2016, we expanded our operation into Talbot County with our friend and fellow colleague, Joseph Ostrowski, Sr. Established in 1947, the Hambleton Harrison funeral home operated at the present day location of 312 South Talbot Street. Hambleton later retired and turned the operation over to his nephew, Harrison E. Leonard. Harrison had a long standing relationship over the years with many area families. As Harrison sought his retirement, he partnered with R. Carroll Hurley who later sold the Funeral Home to Joseph Ostrowski Sr. Joe, a Bozman native, later graduated from Saint Michaels High School. Joseph had owned and operated the funeral home since 2005.
Through the years the facility on South Talbot Street has continuously served Saint Michaels, the Bay Hundred Communities, and all of Talbot County.
Fleischauer Funeral Home
Over the years, we have worked closely with the Fleischauer family. In June of 2019, we again expanded our service area to include Southern Delaware and bought the Fleischauer Funeral Home in Greenwood, Delaware.
William Fleischauer Jr. served in the Army Air Corp. during WWII and was shot down over Italy and became a POW. Escaping and hiding out for months from the Fascist he finally got united with the Allied troops and was sent home. He returned home to Delaware in 1944, and married Nadine Forbes of Hammond, Louisiana.
Mr. Fleischauer received his Delaware Funeral Director license after graduating from Eckels School of Mortuary Science in Philadelphia, PA.
In 1953 after purchasing a house in the heart of Greenwood and adding on to the house he established the Fleischauer Funeral Home. He used the downstairs as the funeral home and the upstairs was made into his family home. This was the first funeral home in Greenwood.
In the mid
70’s the original structure burned down leaving only the addition that he built
standing. The funeral home was restored
and is now standing in its original location today.
In 1989 his son Greg Fleischauer and his wife, Charlotte moved into the funeral home and was helping in the everyday operation of the funeral home all the while Greg was going to Catonsville Mortuary College in Maryland to get his license. In 1992 Greg officially took over the funeral home until his retirement in June 2019.
generations the long established Framptom philosophy of compassionate,
considerate care, with the best of equipment and facilities at very competitive
costs has continued until the present day.
