Our History

For over 70 years, Mahaffey Funeral Home has served the Mt. Ephraim and surrounding community with compassion and care. Recently, Paul Milano and family have acquired the 155 year old establishment, renaming it the Mahaffey - Milano Funeral Home, and they will soon be celebrating their 18 year anniversary.


Paul was born in Philadelphia, but has been a South Jersey resident since 1977. For as long as he can remember, he wanted to be a funeral director to help those in their time of greatest need. Paul graduated from Gloucester Community College with his Associates Degree in Science, and later graduated from Mercer Community College Mortuary School with his mortuary science degree. Since receiving his license to practice mortuary science in 1983, he has been a licensed funeral director for over 30 years in the state of New Jersey.


Paul has renovated the building, adding increased handicapped accessibility and enlarging the parking lot, as well as many decorative renovations. Mahaffey - Milano Funeral Home is also a provider of the New Jersey Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund.


Paul is a member of the West Jersey Funeral Directors Association, Mt. Ephraim Rotary, Mt. Ephraim Sons of Italy #2362, a 4th Degree Knight of the Knights of Columbus Council #6469, a former member of the Catholic School Board for Annunciation, and a member and usher for the Sacred Heart Church in Mt. Ephraim. He lives with his wife of 24 years, Kathleen, and they have two children, Paul Jr., 22, and Victoria, 19.
