onnelly’s Colonial Funeral Home has been serving families in the Irving and surrounding areas since September of 1963. Mr. A.M. 'Mike' Donnelly (1925-2000) and his wife, Mary Ellen, moved to Irving in the early sixties to purchase a three acre tract of land on an undeveloped section of Highway 183, with the intent of establishing a spacious family-owned funeral home. At that time, only two other funeral homes were present in Irving: Black’s Funeral Home on South Britain and Leach Funeral Home on Second and O’Connor. Since its beginnings, Donnelly’s Colonial Funeral Home has remained under the same ownership of the Donnelly family, and our commitment to the families we serve has remained the top priority to all the Donnelly family, funeral directors, and staff.
Most families have already given some thought as to the choice of which funeral home to call at the time of death. In the days immediately following a death, you will rely heavily on the funeral director and funeral home staff. We are here to help assist, plan, and oversee a variety of concerns.
Our staff will assist with the arranging of flowers and receiving of callers during the visitation and make notifications with florists, police escorts, newspaper obituaries, clergy and church, musicians, cemetery or crematory, and a host of other contacts to provide each family with a
fitting tribute to the deceased. The funeral director and staff are working quietly behind the scenes to take care of many important details for your family. Since there can also be a maze of paperwork, the funeral home is ready to assist the family both before and after the service. The numerous details, specialized services, and responsibilities the funeral director has assumed are all part of what the funeral home provides each family we serve.
We are confident that we have a very fine staff of Funeral Directors to tend to your family’s needs with Respect, Dignity, Compassion, and Courtesy.
MIKE KORZENEWSKI has followed his heartfelt dedication since 1972, in serving families in the Abilene and West Texas area as a staff funeral director, general manager, and owner of two funeral homes. During that time, he gave back to the local community he served by assisting and serving on many local charitable boards and civic organizations, while he shared his love of music, and his musical talents at his home church. A former church choir director, he also cherishes the fellowship and the time spent singing with the Irving Silvertones.
We invite you to come by and tour our facilities and have one of our staff answer any questions you may have.
We offer a full range of services. And we are here to serve the people of Irving in their time of need, just as we have done for nearly forty years. Because convenience is so important to quality service, we are available day or night, 365 days a year. If you are suddenly faced with a death in your family, or the loss of a friend, put your trust in the people with experience, compassion, and dedication. Put your trust in us.
