We, at the Listowel Community Family Funeral Home, know that funerals are not just a ceremony to honour those who have died. Funerals are also an important tradition that helps remaining friends and family members start dealing with their loss by sharing with those around them.
Benefits of a Traditional Funeral

  • Helps us express the importance of a life
  • Assists family and friends in taking the first steps in the grief process by reinforcing the reality of the death
  • Offers an opportunity to acknowledge and express feelings of grief
  • Encourages sharing of memories that celebrate and validate the life of the deceased
  • Provides support from friends and family and acknowledges the loss within the community
  • Allows mourners a structured activity or ‘something to do’ during a disorienting time
  • Serves as an important social ritual, one that provides validation, sustenance, and courage to the surviving family and friends

A funeral is more than just a service for the person who has died; a funeral is for the loved ones who are left behind. However, often times when a loved one dies, the first reaction for many people is to want to get things over with as quickly as possible. We, at the Listowel Community Family Funeral Home, know the sadness you are facing and will help make the funeral process as easy as possible.
