John C. Sullivan, Deceased 1949-2015
In 1983, John Sullivan believed that he could provide the East Pennsboro community with a superior service at a reasonable price. He ventured on his own by establishing the Sullivan Funeral Home... and the rest is history. John became well known in the community as a leader and supporter of township events. John Sullivan, our founder, passed away on March 16, 2015. John was a U. S. Air Force Veteran serving during the Vietnam War. His caring nature and emphasis on providing the best possible service to the families he served was a testament to the funeral home's mission statement: "Treat others as we would like to be treated." John's wife, Nancy Sullivan is responsible for many facets of our success as a funeral home. For years she was the funeral home florist providing breathtaking casket sprays and floral pieces. Many families compliment Nancy on her interior design of the funeral home giving it a "homey" feel. Nancy resides in Enola and continues her husband's dedicated work to our community.

As the Sullivan Funeral Home continued to grow, John and Nancy realized they needed to add a partner to their business as well as a successor to the firm. They wanted to add a funeral director who lived in the community and was also a well established owner as well. They chose Mario Billow from Enola and he has become a perfect fit. He is a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church where he serves as a Eucharistic Minister and is a Knight in the 4th Degree. Mario is also actively involved with the Capitol City Sons of Italy Lodge, LeTip of the West Shore, and the Academy of Professional Funeral Service Practice where he achieved the designation of Certified Funeral Service Practitioner (C.F.S.P.). He is a graduate of West Perry High School and a U.S. Army Veteran serving in the 6/29 Field Artillery 8th Infantry Division, Germany. He earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Central Pennsylvania College and a degree in Mortuary Science from Catonsville Community College in 1994. Mario was also a hospital mortician for the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center assisting families at the hospital as well as the pathology staff with the daily activities of this prestigious trauma center. Locally he is known as an expert embalmer, and many funeral homes in the area contact Mario to assist them. Mario is also an award winning amateur winemaker and has entered many of his homemade wines in national competitions. Mario is married to Windy Juliana (Bohensky) Billow and they are proud parents of their daughter, Maribella Dawn Billow.
At Sullivan funeral home, we take tremendous pride in the history of our community. From the Enola Railyard, the Boyer Farm where Central Penn College is located; to the scenic areas along the Conodoguinet Creek, our residents can see the history all around us. Because of the importance of the Enola Railyard's location here in East Pennsboro, our funeral home felt it was important to capture that piece of history by creating our logo of the antique railroad lantern. When you drive past our facility at night, you will see this lantern lit within our sign, "Lighting your way" to our facility and through the difficult process of planning your loved one's funeral.
