Taking the time to just sit and listen, not only for the families that we serve but also others who just need someone to talk to.  Being really good listeners, genuine and calm helps us to help the families that need our guidance.

Bill has lived his entire life in the neighbouring village of Chute à Blondeau. William Connors started at Hillcrest Funeral Home as the organist back in 1990.   His calm demeanor and vast knowledge of the community quickly made Bill a full time fixture at the funeral home.  He greets everyone by name as they arrive at the funeral home and they are comforted by seeing his familiar face.

Haven , Comfort Dog 

We would love for you to meet Haven. She has been a  part of Hillcrest Funeral Home since she was a puppy. She spends her days walking around the funeral home, laying in the sun, getting the occasional belly rub and in return giving the occasional kiss. 

She is an important member of our team but an even more important member of our family.
