Established in 1964 by James and Dorothy Day as Day Mortuary, 1325 Nebraska Avenue, near Junction Street. At that time, it was the begining of the African American migration into, what was then, the Polish community. James and Dorothy's two children, Michael and Cassandra, grew up in the business and later joined their parents, after going to college to become funeral directors and embalmers. Today, they are the second generation of what now is 3 generations, with the addition of Julius M. Moore, licensed funeral director & embalmer, Michael Jr. now as a licensed funeral director and Brian Day, Sr. as an assistant director.
In 1975 Day Mortuary, became know as The House of Day Funeral Service. Fifteen years later,in 1990, construction was completed on our new 10,000 square foot facility located at 2550 Nebraska Avenue, in the heart of the University of Toledo corridor. With the new building we have been able to offer a beautiful facility, beautiful landscaping, more parking spaces, and on site casket selection room.
