Joyce Funeral Home

The Joyce Funeral Home was established in Waltham in October, 1910 by Francis J. Joyce. His generation saw the most significant changes in funeral services during the last century and Mr. Joyce became one of the most progressive, innovative and respected funeral directors of his day. The firm's legal name is Francis J. Joyce & Son, Inc. and the firm has operated as a locally owned funeral home, since its founding. It is also the repository of funeral records of Freedom Wentworth & Sons Funeral Service, the Walsh-Fennelly Funeral Home and the St. Germain & Son Funeral Home, all of Waltham, following the retirement of their owners.

Robert E. Joyce joined his father, in 1946, after service in the Navy and Marine Corps, and operated the funeral home until his death in 1979. He oversaw the modernization and most significant growth of the firm. During his tenure, the home was updated several times and finally relocated to a facility on Main Street which is one of the few in the area designed to provide funeral services. Robert's wife, Dorothy, took over operation of the firm following her husband's death and oversaw construction of the new funeral home.

Robert and Dorothy's son, Frank, is the current owner of the funeral home. He and his family and staff, while living in a different age, still strive to uphold the firm's founding principle of providing dignified, professional and compassionate care to families who call upon them. Consistently regarding the care of the dead and the living as a sacred privilege of trust and caring is the reason why the Joyce Funeral Home has become the pre-eminent funeral firm in the Waltham area. The firm provides many options for funeral, memorial, burial and cremation services in a welcoming and caring environment.
