The original Harry H. Witzke Funeral Home was founded in 1912 in Baltimore. One location was at Hollins and Gilmor Streets, and another was at 4101 Edmondson Avenue. Harry H. Witzke’s Family Funeral Home moved to Howard County in 1965 to its present location to serve all areas.
The funeral home is owned and managed by Alene Collins Witzke and Sherri Collins-Witzke, CFSP. We are family owned and are not affiliated with any other funeral home.
Our pledge is to offer the best service possible at a reasonable price. We do not offer “funeral packages.” Instead, we offer itemized goods and services. You only pay for what you need or want. Our average price for a traditional funeral is $8000.00, not including cash advance items, and $3,335.00 for a cremation with no services. If desired, we also offer viewing and services before cremation at an average price of $6,400.00.
Our facilities are handicapped accessible, all on one level, and ample parking is available. Our directors and staff are here to assist you in a caring, compassionate manner, to help you through your greatest time of need. We are conveniently located in Ellicott City near several major routes and BWl-Thurgood Marshall Airport.
