At Speers, we are dedicated to doing everything within our professional abilities to ensure that your family is especially well cared for. Over the years, we have had the privilege of having many families send us thank-you notes or submit positive reviews online.
We are honoured to share just a few notes from families with you to help provide an image of the high standard of service we aim to provide with every family in our care.
"Our mother passed away recently and we entrusted Speers to help us with the funeral arrangements. Within a few hours after I initially made contact, we were able to arrange meetings with personnel who would assist us with our mom’s wishes. The staff were very polite, respectful and so very helpful. Information packages helped us a great deal. Nothing was pushed on us and our questions on how to fulfil mom’s and our family's wishes were handled without question.
We decided to celebrate mom’s life with a small gathering of close family and friends. Speers Family Centre just north of their Chapel was absolutely perfect. The seating, the physical layout of the room, the staff, food and refreshments were beyond what we wanted.
We were treated so nice and we could tell that the staff considered it an honour to assist and guide us through a difficult time. Every inquiry was dealt with in a timely fashion.
To Todd, Jeff and especially Ferlin and Krista, a big thank you."

"We really appreciated the understanding and patience given by the staff at Speers during this very difficult time for us. You gave us enough time to think about things and make decisions. We appreciated the professionalism and friendliness of all of the staff who were part of the arrangements, family farewell, funeral service and the interment. The memorial video slideshow was excellent. It was professionally done and we were very pleased with it. Thanks for providing this service."

"Thank you so much for the very well-done online funeral service. I’m very grateful this was available as an option, especially during these times… and of course the bitterly cold weather. I so wanted to attend the funeral in person. So again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was able to be there in spirit at the very least, and watch the entire funeral from the comfort of my home. You guys are AWESOME!"

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Speers Funeral Chapel for the outstanding service your staff provided for my Mother’s Funeral. Our Funeral Director Ferlin was an absolute pleasure to deal with! We had first dealt with him for my Father’s funeral, back in December of 2015. We were delighted he could assist in the planning of my mother’s service. Both my son Nick and I found Ferlin to be a well seasoned professional who was very comforting, accommodating and detailed. Ferlin had great ideas, made excellent suggestions and did everything he could to ensure that no stone was left unturned. I was also impressed with the follow up phone calls! Thank you Ferlin! The staff who prepared my mother for the viewing were absolutely amazing as she looked very regal and beautiful! On the actual day of the funeral Ferlin left us in the very capable hands of Jan who also went above and beyond to keep us organized as well as she helped me get through a few anxious moments that day. I thank you my dear! I also did enjoy numerous conversations with Bonnie concerning the obituary, pictures, the beautiful memorial cards she designed, and of course the fine tuning of the video tribute . I couldn’t have been more pleased, Bonnie. Thank you! Your funeral car driver was also most pleasant and accommodating! A final “shout out” goes to Krista. She was also fabulous! Krista was indeed most comforting, reassuring and a great conversationalist! She most certainly took stress away from me by completing a number of forms, advising me on the actions to take, as well as providing me with some very useful tips. She definitely made my day!
In closing, I once again thank you all very much for helping us get through this difficult time. You all made us feel like you were giving us “special” service! But I have no doubt that you give “all” your Families this same great, personalized service! Your “Impeccable” reputation speaks for itself!"

"Speers is the most kind, caring and professional team I have ever met. They treat you like family and make the effort to make the funeral and burial process as easy as possible and with such compassion.

"The week following our father's passing was very stressful and emotionally exhausting. However, there is no way we could have gone through it and created such a memorable funeral for our Dad without the guidance and friendship of our Funeral Director, Lorne Puffalt. He is a true testament to his profession and I will always remember him and the Speers staff fondly when I think about Dad's funeral. Lorne even helped us include Dad's beloved boat as part of the procession to the cemetery... what a great personal touch that we will always remember."
