Our History

Mitruska Funeral Home Inc., was established in 1918 by our grandfather, John S. Mitruska. J.S., as he was most commonly known, opened a small funeral establishment on Cortlandt Street in Perth Amboy at a time when many funeral services were still conducted in family homes. He proudly served the Perth Amboy community for many years and, in 1959, acquired the property on New Brunswick Avenue in Fords to open his second location. Upon his passing in 1961, his son, Frank E. Prybeck, who had worked by his side for many years, became the manager and director of the funeral home.

Frank resided at the Fords facility, where he went on to raise seven children within the Woodbridge Township community. In 1985, Frank completed major renovations at the Fords location, which led to the consolidation of Mitruska Funeral Home, Inc., on New Brunswick Avenue,  our current location.
