Our History

John E. Maloney, the namesake for today's John E. Maloney Funeral Directors, was born in Chicago in 1876 to parents who immigrated to Chicago from Ireland. At the age of 21, John began his career as an undertaker when he joined the firm of Mullen & Maloney. Mullen & Maloney was located at 1657 North Paulina Street.

The year 1897, after conducting business with his partner for two years, Maloney purchased the interest of Mr. Mullen and continued to serve the Chicago area for 20 years. In 1912 he purchased the property and continued the home-like atmosphere in one of the best-equipped facilties in the Midwest. The early traditions of John E. Maloney continue today, as does the name. Currently, the John E. Maloney Funeral Directors is owned by none other than John Maloney.
