History

The Fortin Group manages funeral homes in both Auburn and Lewiston, known locally as the Twin Cities in Maine. For decades, our caring staff has provided thoughtful funeral and cremation services with a personal touch.

Our service begins

In the early 1900s, families began the transition from having undertaking services and embalming take place in the family home to utilizing funeral homes for these services. In 1925, Reginald Fortin became an owner at Poisson and Fortin Funeral Home on Park Street in Lewiston. When Fortin Sr. died, his sons, Donat and Roland G., established their funeral home at our current location: 70 Horton Street in Lewiston.

A family tradition of care

In 1975, Roland G. Fortin sold his interest to existing shareholders Raymond Duprez, Denis Croteau and Roger Bouffard. In 1985, Raymond A. Perreault also became a shareholder in Fortin Funeral Directors.

Nearly 20 years later, Fortin Funeral Directors merged with Plummer & Merrill & Teague Funeral Homes in 1992. They changed the business name to The Fortin Group of Lewiston and Auburn, offering a choice of locations for our families in both cities. Since 1996, our Auburn and Lewiston funeral homes have been members of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

This partnership has enabled us to offer more service options to our families with the ability to customize each one to meet the needs of our community. Our local team members are experts in arranging meaningful tributes in our welcoming and comforting facilities, providing each family with service beyond their expectations.

"All of the staff was exceptionally kind and helpful. Of course, empathy is a necessity in this business, but I truly felt that Fortin cared about my family and my deceased sister, and at no point did I feel like the kindness we received was out of obligation."

"Korey was great to work with. He was friendly, patient and professional. He fit right in with my families' sense of humor as we attempted to lighten the heavy moments. I love that I could not only call or email, but also TEXT Korey to stay in touch and keep him posted with any and all updates to my plans. I loved that! When I found out Korey was go

ing to be off the day of my son's service, I was disappointed. We had talked in person, emailed and texted for a week and a half. Now, all our plans would be turned over to another director. I was very anxious as I had made some last minute changes in music and added a power point presentation to be done by my brother. Upon arriving at the home before the service, I met my new directors. My brother worked with one director on the connections for his power point presentation and I talked with Paul and Lynette to make sure all the updates had been noted. It was a bit of a scuffle, but it all came together beautifully. As a mom, I couldn't have asked for anything more to honor the life of my son. The service ran perfectly smooth. The photo dumping link Fortin offers was so very helpful and made adding pictures to the slideshow so easy. 'Easy' was wonderful at a time like this. I highly recommend Fortin Group Funeral Homes."

"It is nice that our family met with Fortin back in 2004 to make advanced arrangements ahead of time for both our parents. It made such a time of grief easier to deal with as things were already paid ahead and planned."
