Celebrate a Life Well Lived
There are many functions that a funeral fulfills: it honours a unique life; it gives friends and family a chance to say goodbye, and it provides a place where the healing process can begin. For thousands of years, the funeral has played an important role in providing consolation during a time of loss and mourning.
Say More Than Just Goodbye
A funeral service, whether for yourself or a loved one, can be as traditional or contemporary as you desire. No matter how unique the request, our planning professionals creatively and resourcefully provide a one-of-a-kind remembrance.
A visitation often precedes the service. Our quiet visitation rooms allow family and friends to pay their final respects in peaceful and serene surroundings.
Planning a Service and Reception
Scott Funeral Home – Mississauga Chapel features a beautifully appointed chapel that seats 250. But you don’t have to plan a conventional, clergy-led service. Today, the opportunity to honour your loved one reaches far beyond the classic readings and a eulogy. Whether it’s showcasing dad’s prized motorcycle collection or serving cookies baked from grandmother’s famous recipe, discuss your ideas with us. The possibilities are endless.
When planning the funeral, this checklist can help you personalize the service:
- Specific pastimes and characteristics you wish to honour
- Special stories and memories to share
- Significant people to invite
- A leader for the ceremony
- People who may want to speak at the ceremony
- A soundtrack for the ceremony and other events, such as the reception
- Quotes or poems to read during the ceremony
After the service, a reception allows family and friends to gather and reminisce over a meal or refreshments. With a large reception room with full kitchen, we can provide the perfect setting.
Available free of charge, our exclusive online memorial site Sharing Memories provides the unique opportunity to honour your loved one with a personal tribute of words, pictures, video and more. Unlike traditional forms of memorial, your loved one's on-line profile can stay current and accessible always, from anywhere.
Helping You Cope with Grief
Scott Funeral Home – Mississauga Chapel is pleased to offer free AfterCare support services. We are available to help you cope with your grief, offer guidance and advice, and assist you with complicated matters after the funeral, such as finalizing the estate.
Planning a funeral for a loved one requires you to make many decisions and choices during a time of grief. You can spare your family from the stress – and financial burden – by pre-planning your own funeral. Planning in advance lets you tell your final story in your own unique way. It feels good to know it’s all taken care of.
You also receive exclusive benefits when planning ahead, including funeral coverage for children and grandchildren under the age of 19, and the ability to transfer your service to any of our locations across Canada. Find out more about pre-planning final arrangements.
