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!! The Alberta Provincial Election looks like it may be an ELECTION???? The conservatives are dropping in the polls! Local NDP leader withdraws pending charges! Prentice defending bad choices rather than admitting his budget mistakes! Prentice not only blames Albertans for the previous excess spending and poor choices! Prentice is now blaming his predecessors! I just have Three questions!!! 1. Has Jim Prentice, himself, looked in the mirror? 2. Does Jim Prentice assume responsibility for his choices? 3. Is Jim Prentice the man we want as Premier? If you answered NO to anyone of those questions, I strongly hope you WILL VOTE FOR AN ALTERNATIVE PARTY! The advantage the conservatives have is that the vote is split between three other parties--so consider carefully before you throw your vote away!! Personally, I am voting for the party that shows the most strength against the conservatives. If you haven’t already, I strongly suggest you read: If Jim Prentice wants to know why he&#039;s down in the polls, maybe he should look in the mirror By Ian Robinson, Calgary Sun First posted: Sunday, April 12, 2015 08:00 AM MDT | Updated: Sunday, April 12, 2015 09:27 PM MDT However, It is time to deviate from the political scene for a bit. Remember how I bemoaned the fact that anybody who starts yard work before the long week-end in May is “anal”? Well, I have joined the ranks lol. Over the week-end’ I managed to get our ponds and water features up and operational, built a small retaining wall, moved a bunch of rocks, started cleaning flower beds, transplanting perennials…… It wasn’t so bad, the leaves in the ponds had not started to ferment yet and I managed to put all the debris in the re-cycling bin—well almost all, I had to put a little in the garbage can. Wonders will never cease!!!! My cell phone did not drop into the sludge either. But, if you think I am a changed man, I am not. I have just created myself an extra month of yard work!!! However, the good news is: SPRING IS HERE!!!!
