LOCAL PEOPLE PROVIDING A FINER TRADITION OF CARING
Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel and Crematorium is conveniently located in the heart of Medicine Hat. The seven acre, park-like setting, affords more than adequate parking. The large comfortable chapel is on the main floor level and is wheelchair accessible. The mural, entitled “The Adventure of Life”, at the front of the Chapel was designed and erected by local artist, Jim Marshall. Each raw brick was painstakingly sculptured, numbered, fired and then mortared together on the chapel site. The mural depicts the four stages of life—baby, child, young adult and old age. The main building is a turn-of-the-century home built by William James Shannon in 1906. It provides warm, home-like surroundings for family and friends.
We would like to thank the community for all the support shown us over the past several years—it is very much appreciated! Besides providing reasonably priced and personal funeral service, our goal has been to serve the community—whether through service club volunteering, providing support to local teams, clubs and events, or providing information seminars. Having been born and raised in this area, we know how important community is; therefore, it is with pleasure that we are able to introduce our staff who are here to serve you in a dignified and professional manner and the many services Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel and Crematorium can provide.
From our early beginnings we have grown to include, not only a funeral chapel, but also a cemetery, crematorium, on-site monument shop, and counselling services. This website will also outline these extra conveniences and services. It also serves as an information guide about a topic that will affect all of us at one time or another. Please feel free to call us directly for further discussion and information.
