welcome to gluvna shimo hromada

Welcome to the Gluvna-Shimo-Hromada Funeral Chapel Web Site....Lorain's first funeral home to establish communication via the world-wide web. We truly feel that funerals are more than merely observances of the death of an individual. They are, instead, celebrations of life to which every person is entitled. We embrace the importance, individuality, and richness of each person's existence and we sincerely believe that each family we serve has the right to choose their own style of memorialization. Our responsibility and intent is to uphold the very highest level of professionalism while providing respectful, dignified, and affordable funeral, cremation, and memorial services in a comfortable and worry-free atmosphere. On this website you can access the following features:




  • Current Obituary Listings

  • Archived Obituaries

  • Maps and Directions to our Chapel

  • Local Links and Resources

  • Prearrangement Information and more



You can even sign an electronic guestbook and print out a memorial card of a friend or family member.
