Personalized funeral services

With facilities unmatched by any other funeral home in the county, we are honored to help you plan a celebration that reflects her personality and passions of yourself or a loved ones. We can help you find inspiration almost anywhere—in a favourite song, hobby or even an iconic style—and turn that inspiration into a memorial filled with thoughtful and meaningful details.

Whether you are seeking a basic cremation with cremains scattered in a personally meaningful place, a traditional funeral service with a cemetery burial, or a creative event complete with live music, favorite foods and drinks, and funeral favors, we take care of every detail. We are here to help you and your family celebrate life like no other.

A private on-site crematory

Not everyone knows that there are many cremation options. If you are interested in cremation, the funeral home team can explain the process and the different memorial and burial choices. From a direct cremation without a service or a witness to a full funeral service before or after the cremation and more, we help you understand this increasingly common decision.

For families who choose this time-honoured tradition, our full-service funeral home has a private crematory on the property. This gives Schoening Funeral Service complete control of a cremation from start to finish and means your loved one never leaves our care.

"Jennifer and all the staff were amazing. They were very caring and supportive. Glen was also excellent. We were so pleased with the memorial service. So glad that we had the service despite only being able to have 22 people because of the Corona Virus. Jennifer was great. Always available to answer our questions. She is very professional and does an excellent job at making a difficult time more manageable, we are very grateful to her. Thank you to all the staff for your kindness."
