Latest from our blog

The majority of us are all wondering the same things when it comes to funeral planning, death and how to deal with the loss of a loved one or trying to plan your own final wishes! That is why the staff at Serenity Funeral Service have created a blog. Our blog is a place where you can get answers to questions such as; how to write an obituary, what to do in a funeral procession, and what are your duties as an executor. If your questions are regarding your own funeral planning, we have you covered as well. With everything from; funeral merchandise- such as types of caskets (coffins), cremation containers and urns, to available (and unavailable) methods of disposition- burial, cremation or green cremation, to aid in your funeral planning. Serenity is more than a funeral home or funeral service provider- we are also a resource center!

Not necessarily looking for resources regarding funeral planning, funeral services, cremation, merchandise, planning ahead or what to do after the funeral? The blog is still a great place to check out our upcoming events, ways we are involved with the community and various charitable causes that we are apart of.

Stay a while and see for yourself what sets Serenity Funeral Service apart from the rest! Don’t see a topic that you were hoping for? Please leave a comment or send an email and we will try our best to accommodate your request. Alternatively, like us on Facebook to be the first to hear about upcoming contests and events in your community!

Upcoming Events

Serenity Funeral Service is so much MORE than a funeral service provider. We are one company that finds home in several communities throughout Edmonton and surrounding cities and towns. That is why we love to get involved with community events and giving back charitable causes!

Black Gold Health Foundation– May 29
Shepherd’s Care Foundation Events Tournament– June 12
Wetaskiwin Health Foundation– June 22
MADD Edmonton and Area Golf Tournament– July 6
Motors In Memory– September 16

About these foundations:

Black Gold Heath– “Health care is a concern that touches all of us – every day someone we know is affected by health-related issues.
Because of this, the Leduc Community Hospital Foundation recognizes the importance of our health-care services and the valuable contributions they make to the quality of life in our community.
The Leduc Community Hospital Foundation (LCHF) (established in 1993 as a registered charity) forms an important link between the community and the health-care services provided at the Leduc Community Hospital and the public Health Centres of Beaumont, Leduc and Thorsby.”

Shepherd’s Care Foundation- “Shepherd’s Care Foundation is a not-for-profit organization providing housing, care and supports to over 1600 seniors in a Christian, age in place environment. From home care services, long term care and supportive living to independent condos and apartments, [they]provide options that are right for each resident. But that’s not all [they] do.
[They] take the responsibility of caring for and advocating on behalf of our residents seriously; adapting daily to the changes in the environment of seniors care so families and residents do not need to.”

Wetaskiwin Health Foundation– “The role of the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation is to; raise funds and enhance health services for residents of Wetaskiwin and surrounding areas and raise awareness in the community about health care needs
The Foundation celebrated 30 years of fundraising in 2016. Through the community’s support and generosity, the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation has disbursed approximately $2.25 Million over the past 7 years and close to $8.1 Million since 1986.
Every dollar has been strategically invested into leading edge technology and patient care enhancement.
100% of every dollar raised in Wetaskiwin & surrounding areas stays in Wetaskiwin!”

MADD– “Each and every year, thousands of Canadians are killed or injured in impaired driving crashes. Driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs is a terrible crime that touches all our lives. It is an irresponsible, dangerous and intolerable act. MADD Canada strives to offers support services to victims/survivors, heighten awareness about the dangers of alcohol and/or drug-impaired driving, and to save lives and prevent injuries on our roads.”

Motors In Memory– Serenity’s own first annual Show and Shine & Memorial Ride. A 299km Memorial Ride Procession that will start in Spruce Grove making its way to Drayton Valley, Wetaskiwin, and ending off at Leduc. A great way to honor a beloved motor enthusiast.
