About

Green Funeral Home has provided funeral and cremation services to the families of the Rainy River District for nearly 100 years. Established in 1923 and located on Reid Avenue, one block east of the Memorial Sports Centre in Fort Frances, we strive to exceed the needs of the families we serve.

Hometown tradition

Operating from the same cozy building our founder built in the early '60s, the experienced staff at Green Funeral Home delivers compassionate care to people of all backgrounds. Many of us were born and raised in Fort Frances, and we all consider you a friend.

Personalized funeral services

Our services are designed to give families peace of mind at one of the most challenging times in their lives. Our caring and compassionate associates are skilled at creating one-of-a-kind tributes that celebrate a person's passions and personality. We offer everything from a traditional funeral service in our own chapel, at a place of worship, graveside or elsewhere to a no-holds-barred celebration of life, complete with live music, catering and a heartwarming send-off. There are thousands of ways to celebrate a life and we are committed to bringing your vision or your loved one's final wishes to reality.

From finding just the right catering menu to ordering personalized mementos, we go the extra mile to capture the unique essence of every individual. As a member of the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral providers, Green Funeral Home promises quality, value and satisfaction. Please feel free to contact us or drop by our funeral home for a visit. We would be honoured to give you a tour and answer any questions about our services, including planning a funeral ahead of time.

History

Green Funeral Home has served families of the Rainy River District for nearly 100 years. Established by R.V. “Rusty” Green in 1923, the funeral home was moved several times around Fort Frances until 1961, when Rusty felt confident in the future of Fort Frances and the Rainy River District and built the cozy Reid Avenue building that we still operate from today.

Since that time, Green Funeral Home expanded service to Atikokan (Green Visitation Centre – Atikokan) and now covers more than 14,000 square miles. Times have changed but our dedication to celebrating each life like no other has remained the same.

"I would like to say how amazing our funeral director, Jennifer, was. She was simply amazing. She was always there for me anytime I needed her. I could call her at anytime of day/night and she would answer. She made me feel at ease during a terrible time in my life. Everything went so smoothly. She was very helpful and very knowledgable. She didn't pressure me for anything. I truly believe she wanted the funeral to be as beautiful as I imagined it. Her service was excellent and I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you so very much, from the bottom of my heart."
