History

Front exterior building at Foster's Garden Chapel & CrematoriumThe founder of what is now Foster's Garden Chapel & Crematorium was Cy Foster. He opened his original funeral home on 16th Avenue Northwest in Calgary, under the name Foster’s Garden Chapel on a freezing December 3, 1956. He had 7 calls that first month, 15 the next and 300 by the end of the first year.

The funeral home business grows

Over the years, Cy partnered with the Gooder Brothers to open 2 other funeral homes: Cy Foster-Gooder’s Chapel on the Hill (located at 1708 16th Ave. NW) and Cy Foster-Gooder Hillside Chapel (located at 1635 17th Ave. SW).

In the 1980s, Foster's decided to open a new funeral home that would be an amalgamation of the 3 original funeral homes. Construction at our present location, across from Queen’s Park Cemetery, began in 1988. The new Foster's Garden Chapel & Crematorium opened on July 27, 1989.

Upholding a tradition

Though it’s been decades since Cy opened his first funeral home, the team at Foster's Garden Chapel & Crematorium upholds his commitment to helping families through the emotional challenges of planning funerals, cremations and burials.

"I first with Kate Li to begin the process of pre-arrangements and she was very professional and caring. I had requested someone who is able to speak Cantonese so that my mom will be able to understand, it was greatly appreciated this request was able to be fulfilled. My mom and I were able to converse and let Kate know about our needs during the pre-arrangement process. Thank you Kate. Upon the passing of my father, we met with Ray Reitsema. During this difficult time, Ray was able to understand our need and especially with the cultural needs as well. I found it easy to work with and deal with Ray during this difficult time. Thank you Ray."

"Foster's Garden Chapel provided our family during this difficult time with the utmost care and professionalism. I appreciate the pure dignity that was shown to our deceased son and also to our family. The staff met our every request and detail to make the service and experience most memorable. They were thoughtful, considerate, supportive, and compassionate. I would highly recommend Foster's Funeral Chapel. They made this very difficult time of planning and executing a memorial service less burdensome. They were supportive with each step of the entire process. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts to the entire staff at Foster's. With love and appreciation, The Siakaluk and Black family."
