Celebrates 90 Years of Dedicated Service
The Nesbitt Funeral Home, from its founding in 1932, provided a place where grieving families could feel safe and supported as they laid their loved ones to rest. Bravell Nesbitt Sr. and Carrie Allen Nesbitt worked alongside various churches and leaders to serve and uplift the Elizabeth, New Jersey community. That tradition continues to this day. At their 90th Anniversary Celebration, on August 13, 2022, NJ Lt. Governor Sheila Y. Oliver welcomed guests to the event at a Seaside Park, NJ beach. The location was to honor the first Africans who came to America by sea. In an African tradition of honoring our elders, the ceremony in part also honored three centenarians in attendance, Mrs. Lousie Rock, 101; Mrs. Henretta Davis, 102; and Mrs. India N. Edwards, 103.
