About Saamis - Leading among Medicine Hat Funeral Homes
When Personal Details Are Important We Offer Choices...
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 hand 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.
Saamis Memorial Funeral Chapel and Crematorium strives to provide convenience for its clients. To meet this end, there are several on-site services such as Shannon Monumental Ltd
