About Us

Since the 1890′s, present and past owners of the Wilson Funeral Home have served the families of the Norwich community as an independent, family-owned funeral home.  The funeral home is now owned by John Gawronski and his wife, Shannon.  The two purchased the funeral home in March 2017 from long-time owners Douglas and Sharon (Ryan) Wilson.  Doug served as the funeral home's funeral director, then owner, for a combined 36 years, and his father, Pete Wilson, served the community starting in 1949.  John Gawronski joined the firm in 2009, and was licensed soon after.  He became the firm manager in 2015, and oversaw every aspect of the funeral home operation until he and his wife purchased the firm in 2017.

John and Shannon are passionate about serving the Norwich community.  John has served on the local hospice board and volunteers his time at the local YMCA. His wife, a native of nearby Greene, has been the Norwich YMCA's health and fitness director since 2005, and has coached numerous atheltic teams in Norwich and Oxford.  Their oldest daughter, Erin, a rewarded and recognized graduate of Norwich High School, and is a double-major in college.  Their two Norwich High School-aged kids, Gabe and Katie, are both successful students and accomplished athletes, and each volunteer their time around the community.  

John Antonowicz, a Norwich native and active resident, started assisting the firm in 2014, and became formally employed by the funeral home in 2015.  He graduated from mortuary school in 2016 and became a resident that same year. He expects to be a fully licensed funeral director in the fall of 2017.  At just 21 years of age, John serves on the Board of Directors of Chenango United Way, Chenango County Historical Society, Chenango Hospice, and Chenango Valley Home.

It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.

Pre-Arrangement

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?
