Established in 1994, Greenwood Funeral Home was built on the site of a longtime New Orleans gathering place, Lenfant’s. Today, it continues to serve the community as a gathering place for families and friends to honor and celebrate loved ones. Providing funerals, cremation arrangements, catered receptions, celebration of life services and pre-arrangements, Greenwood Funeral Home serves all cemeteries and accepts all pre-arrangements.

The main reason New Orleans families choose Greenwood is because of its Funeral Directors. With years of experience in the community, this exceptional group of professionals brings both the passion and compassion to funeral services that seem to be waning in today’s industry. Directors Jim Lohan, Charlie Eagan, Jeanne St. Upery, Floyd Herty and Bob Gentry are bringing back to New Orleans and surrounding areas the true meaning of family service in a funeral plan. With experience and community awareness, they prioritize meeting the needs of families over all else, resulting in a successful business model that has seen its volume up considerably in 2016 with the trend continuing in 2017. 

“We don’t have annoying sales people pushing upon you expensive packages. You’ll meet with me or one member from my team and we’ll arrange the funeral service you desire, within your budget,” says Charlie Eagan, Managing Partner. “Whether it’s a traditional funeral, jazz funeral, or a creative celebration of life, we can arrange that service.” 

Individuals are invited to stop by and see the many amenities, including the large Boulevard Room, and speak with a director about service possibilities. For additional information or to tour the home online, visit
