Jon T. Carpenter - Funeral Director/Owner 

Serving with compassion…

"I am honored to be a part of our community, and to have served many families in the Corning area for over 30 years. I appreciate the relationships I have developed with those whom I have served with on various committees, service clubs, and at church.  Jennifer and I treasure and value the many friendships we have made over the years. The Corning-Painted Post area has been, and always will be our home."

Serving families only at Haughey Funeral Home Inc., Jon is a third generation funeral director coming from a family of trusted and respected funeral professionals in Corning. Jon lived in Corning as a child, and then moved with his family after his father's retirement and sale of his funeral home and radio station.  After completing his degree in Mortuary Science from the College of Boca Raton (Lynn University) in Florida, he returned to Corning  in 1989.  Jon made a commitment to follow his grandfather and father's example of how families and their loved ones should be cared for. Jon also is committed to our community through his work as a granite memorialist at our monument company, Haughey Memorials. Jon is married to Jennifer who works with him every day to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for their staff and the families that call upon them. They have two sons. 

Alina M. Fields - Funeral Director

Originally from Olathe, Kansas, Alina, her husband and three children moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania so she could start her journey toward funeral directing at the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science in 2016. 

Alina was heavily involved in school and was even elected into her class’s student senate.  She completed her education in the spring of 2018 and earned the MU SIGMA ALPHA award at graduation.
