Welcome

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.

Wow, you have to love May long week-ends! I cut down bushes until I refused to cut anymore--two and half days of really grueling yard work so was glad to get back to work in order to have a rest lol! Besides that, we had an endless stream of company which is always enjoyable! Since I was over-whelmed in the yard, Y. had to do all the cooking--I just loved watching her slave away in the kitchen lol! Then, on Sunday, she told me she was bored--bored if you can believe it???? Who had time to be bored but maybe I was missing a hidden message there? Any ideas? lol Although long week-ends are nice, it is hard to wrap my head around the fact that it is Tuesday and not Monday! I can&#039;t believe that May is more than half done! Has anyone driven downtown 3rd Street and observed Local&#039;s new patio? Don&#039;t get me wrong, I am not being critical, I think it is a very creative and unique addition to the downtown core. I am not sure I like how the owners went about getting it though, but from my experience, it can take years to get things approved through the &quot;normal, proper channels&quot; in this city. So, better to do it and beg forgiveness later lol!! I am not sure how temporary it is--to me, it looks pretty permanent. Nevertheless, a precedent has been set and other eating establishments should be allowed the same privileges if so desired. I know it takes away from the parking downtown, but it may encourage people to walk (healthier for you!) and explore the downtown core. While I was growing up, the core was the hub of the city and my friends and I spent many hours walking around or circling the blocks in our cars once we came of driving age! These are memories I cherish! I wonder though, if Local Public Eatery has considered changing its name to Connections--it might be more appropriate lol!!! In my opinion, any addition to downtown is a big plus!!! Also, if you get a chance, you should check out the unique garden centre on 2nd Street--it&#039;s a treat!!! Well, I hope all of you have a great week!!! Roger
