DNA Banking

The death of a loved one has traditionally meant the loss of family history. Memories fade and so does important information such as genealogical heritage and medical history. Questions of “where do we come from” and “what diseases did we inherit in our genes” will be asked many generations from now. DNA provides important and relevant information of a family’s genealogical and medical history.

The Donahue Funeral Home along with DNA Memorial provides a family the last opportunity to collect the treasure of their deceased loved ones DNA; information for generations to come. Through funeral homes we collect your loved one’s DNA and our proprietary process that allows for room temperature storage indefinitely.

By offering a variety of banking from home or our facility along with custom jewelry and portraits, your loved one’s DNA is safe for future testing. Your loved ones DNA treasure is secure for generations with DNA Memorial.
