We believe a memorial service should be as unique as the person it honours, and we strive to make one of life's most difficult experiences as simple as possible. We take inspiration from your life and turn that it into a memorial service filled with thoughtful and meaningful details. We make every effort to bring quality services to grieving families, taking care to guide you through difficult times.
When you choose Résidence funéraire Mongeau, you receive the compassionate care you expect from a locally operated establishment with the benefits you deserve from the largest network of funeral and cremation service providers in North America.
In 1920, when Victor J. Mongeau opened his funeral home on Girouard Street in Saint-Hyacinthe, in-home visitation was a strong tradition. To establish credibility and boost our reputation outside the city and county, our founder built the business on exceptional customer service to truly support grieving families.
When Victor died in 1932, his son, René J. Mongeau, took over. At that time, funeral traditions shifted to visitation in funeral homes. In response, René took the opportunity to develop family-oriented services. The funeral home experienced a sustained growth under his leadership.
When René retired in 1964, he sold Résidence funéraire Mongeau to Robert Boutin who had been a professional embalmer in Montreal for 17 years. The Mongeau Funeral Home kept our name, as well as the family tradition of comforting client families. As a matter of fact, we were one of the first funeral homes in Quebec whose funeral agreements included only those services that were being used.
In 1984, Robert’s son, Denis, took over. Under his leadership, the company added a funeral home in Saint-Pie-de-Bagot in 1985. Then in 1996, in order to offer a wider range of services and programs, we joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery providers.
