Sitkowski, Malboeuf & Hickey Funeral Home was founded in 1933 by the late Edward C. Sitkowski as a store front business on Lake Street and he later purchased the former Prescott estate in 1945 (originally built by the Joslin family). After a year of renovation and adjustments to the 340 School Street building he and his wife Stasia formally opened Sitkowski Funeral Home. In 1953 Edward and Stasia’s son Edward D. Sitkowski began working with them. In 1963 he became licensed, and took over the management of the business. In 1968 the Sitkowski’s accepted Roland P. Malboeuf (formerly of Paradis Funeral Home, Webster) as an apprentice. Ed and his father ran funerals together until the elder Mr. Sitkowski passed away in 1979. In 1986 Mr. Malboeuf became a licensed funeral director and embalmer and purchased a portion of the business from Mr. Sitkowski. In 1988 Mr. Malboeuf bought the entire business from Mr. Sitkowski.
