New Funeral Home in Woodbury Plans Winter Completion

O’Halloran & Murphy is building a new facility along Valley Creek Road.

A new funeral home being built along Valley Creek Road in Woodbury should be done by December or January, an employee told Patch.

Construction on the new 12,617-square-foot O’Halloran & Murphy Woodbury Cremation and Funeral Services facility is underway near the intersection of Donegal Drive and Valley Creek Road, next to Walgreens.

The employee said it will be a full-service funeral home, and its website says the building will feature two large gathering rooms, a private family lounge, a children’s play room, and expansive community/dining room.

A family-owned business, O’Halloran & Murphy has three current locations in Minnesota and has been in existence for more than a century.

I smell dead people...

Again the City of Woodbury makes a HUGE mistake with planning! Who the heck wants to see or smell a crematorium - especially near retail, restaurants...and, oh yeah - peoples homes! The people on Interlachen must be furious. How would you like your backyard butting up against that?! Horrible...

We are one of those people on Interlachen! Was this discussed with the residents of the area? I do not recall hearing a word... I bet it was discussed during a midnight session. Keep an eye on the smoke stack! Why aren't the restaurant owners outraged over this??

Not really sure how I feel about this. I know nothing about crematorium and if it causes any residue in the air. But families have a right to dignity and comfort during the death of a loved one and O'Hallaran and Murphy have a tradition of excellence.

I am not against providing dignity and comfort, just against the chosen location. We still have a lot of open space in the east side of Woodbury.
