À propos

Ross Funeral Service has served families in Assiniboia and surrounding districts since 1912. With a long and storied history of providing funeral and cremation services to the community, we consider everyone here our friends.

Our core values of integrity, communication, teamwork, compassion and creativity were instilled in us by the Ross family, who personally ran the funeral home for 80 years and passed down a tradition of excellence from generation to generation.

Personalized funeral services

Not only do we provide seamless funeral services throughout Assiniboia and the surrounding areas, but everything we do is specifically designed to help families through one of the most personal and challenging stages of their lives. And though funeral service options have evolved a lot in 105 years, our longstanding commitment to innovation, first established by founder Thomas Ross, remains the same today as 100 years ago.

What does that mean exactly? It means that whether you are seeking a basic cremation with cremated remains scattered in a personally meaningful place, a traditional funeral service with a graveside service or a modern celebration of life with live music, catering and a send-off that reflects the personality and passions of yourself or your loved one, we go the extra mile to make it happen—and we do it with a level of care and compassion that's uncommon in this world.

Over the years, we have created tributes as unique as the lives they honour. From featuring a motorcycle in the chapel for the avid motorcyclist to displaying fishing gear for the passionate fisherman, showcasing a saddle collection for the beloved cowboy and more, we are here to help create a personalized memorial befitting of your loved one. Want a balloon release? You got it. Cupcakes with purple frosting? Yes. The list is endless.

You can count on us

As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network, Ross Funeral Service gives you not only the warm, familiar attention you expect from a locally operated funeral home but also the value you deserve by way of the largest network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers in North America.

History

History of Ross Funeral ServiceRoss Funeral Service has a long and storied history of providing care to the families of Assiniboia and beyond.

Thomas Ross establishes the firm

The funeral home was first established at Leeville in 1912 as Luke and Ross. In 1913, Luke and Ross moved to Assiniboia, into a new building on 3rd Avenue East, in the first block off Centre Street. In his memoir, founder Thomas Ross jokes that in its first year in business, Luke and Ross held exactly one funeral—and that business doubled the second year.

In its third year, the funeral home moved to a two-story building on Centre Street, where Tom also opened the Assiniboia Furniture Company, presumably because the funeral business did not seem all that sustainable.

Modernizing the business

In 1915, Tom purchased an ornate, factory-built, horse-drawn hearse from A.B. Geer Co. of Hamilton, Ontario, to replace the funeral home's first conveyance, a two-seat democrat drawn by a team of horses. A pair of black mares pulled the new funeral coach, which was driven by Tom outfitted in a top hat and morning coat.

In 1928, Tom and his wife, Thurza, built a modern brick building on Centre Street, adjacent to their other building, and moved the furniture and funeral businesses there. In 1937, they incorporated an ambulance service. Their first ambulance was a Nash car converted to an ambulance by a Chicago-based company.

Growth and expansion

The funeral home relocated in 1945 to its present location at the corner of 1st Avenue and 1st Street East. Tom’s son, Marlow, joined the business after returning from World War II. Marlow eventually took over and his son, Robert, later joined him. In 1980, the two men sold the ambulance service portion of the business, and a year later they added 4,000 square feet to the funeral home.

In 1991, Ross Funeral Service joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

In the spring of 2018, our funeral home underwent extensive chapel renovations. The space now offers flexible chair seating, a drop-down screen with projectors and a new audio-visual system. We also updated the foyer.

"The Funeral Director was always so kind, calm and compassionate. I never once felt rushed. She was very thorough, discussing each aspect in detail, letting me take whatever time I needed to make decisions. She paid attention to details and didn't forget to do anything we had asked for. She was always cheerful and ready to answer questions. Planning a Celebration of Life is not something anyone really ever wants to do but the reality is, it happens and one must deal with it. Working with Anette and other staff made the experience far easier then one would ever expect. I would not hesitate to recommend Ross Funeral to anyone. They made it a satisfying experience - when it was all done, I felt we had given my mother the most wonderful sendoff possible, thanks to their help!!"
