John J. and Barbara’s daughter, Judy, who is a licensed funeral director, grew up in the funeral business – working at the funeral homes over the years to help her parents. Terry Reardon joined the firm in 1987 after graduating from the C.C.M.S. as a licensed funeral director and embalmer. Terry and Judy's son, Terrance, also grew up in the family business and is a licensed funeral director and embalmer having graduated from the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science in 2018.
In January 1999, Judy Higgins-Reardon, and her husband Terry Reardon purchased the funeral homes. Today, under their supervision, the Higgins-Reardon Funeral Homes now serve families throughout Youngstown, Austintown, Boardman, Canfield, North Jackson, Poland, Struthers, Salem, Columbiana, and surrounding communities, with complete pre-need and at-need funeral and bereavement services. The firm celebrates four generations of family ownership, and a century of service to families of the Mahoning Valley.
