Funeral Services in Kitchener
A funeral is a timeless tradition that has given families a chance to say goodbye for thousands of years. It is a place where a special life can be honoured, their values and accomplishments can be celebrated, and a place where family can begin to heal. There is so much more a funeral provides than simply a eulogy and biblical quotes; it is a way to commemorate a life and all those it touched.
Say More Than Just Goodbye
Choosing how to remember your loved one is a unique process, and our planning professionals can help you create a one-of-a-kind funeral service. Whether you choose a traditional style, or want to honour them in a more creative and contemporary way, we can help.
Traditionally, there is a visitation period before the service for friends and family to express their love, support, and concern. We offer access to quiet visitation rooms that provide a peaceful atmosphere for your visitation period.
Planning a Service and Reception
We feature an exquisitely decorated chapel. But you are not limited to classic, clergy-led services. We can help you plan a memorial that reflects an individual’s talents and interests, from cooking to painting, motorcycles to movies. The choices are endless.
As you personalize the funeral, some things to consider include:
- Attributes or passions of the person who died that you want to be sure to honour
- Memories to share
- Important people to include
- Person to lead the ceremony
- Others who might want to speak or share memories
- Music ideas for the visitation and ceremony
- Readings for the ceremony
Once the service is over, a reception or meal offers a time for family and friends to socialize and remember. Our lovely reception room, with full kitchen and catering facilities, provides the perfect setting for your event.
Available free of charge, our exclusive online memorial site, Sharing Memories, features photos, videos a guestbook and more. It gives family and friends a place to remember and pay tribute, no matter where they live.
