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.

ALBERTA IS A CHANGIN’….. Sunday May 24th 2015 witnessed the swearing in of our second female premier—Rachel Notley. All business men and hardworking Albertans need to take lessons on how to do business from her!!! I refer to last week’s news references to the fact that, along with the invitations to attend her swearing in ceremony, it was suggested donations to be made to the NDP. Wow, what an idea! All business people need to ask for donations when people are attending your place of business and all hardworking Albertans should seek donations when they have invited friends and family to their homes. It would help off-set the increase in taxes and minimum wages that we are all going to face in the next few months lol!!! Both fuels inflation so Albertans will be paying more with a net gain of zero! I jest of course! Premier Notley has her work “cut out” for her. She has already had to deal with what Albertans view as inappropriate behavior by one of her MLA’s. Her actions were swift and harsh! Perhaps we are witnessing another Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s former Prime Minister or Peter Lougheed, former Premier of Alberta! In my view, because of her very young and inexperienced caucus, Premier Notley, has no choice, but to become an “Absolute Monarch!” Like Thatcher and Lougheed, she must have her thumb on absolutely everything that is going on in Alberta. By reducing her portfolios to almost half, she is not only saving Albertan’s money but can better hold her ministers accountable. I just hope the “power does not go to her head” and as her people become more experienced she is willing to relinquish some of the power that she is obviously assuming. (Aside: I mentioned before I think minimum wage should be attached to cost of living increases or decreases for that matter!! To me that makes the most sense!) Enough time spent on politics lol!! The week-end saw more yard work, painting, and helping my youngest son build a fence. With spring coming so early and no rain, Y and I keep finding more and more things that need to be done. For those of you doing the rain dances—it “ain’t” working lol! We are really needing some moisture and I a break!! I mentioned to Y. I am feeling more and more like my paternal grandmother! If any of you knew Molly, you will remember that as soon as spring arrived she had a can of paint and brush in her hands until freeze up. The only time she put them down was to clean, wash windows, weed her garden and can its rewards! I think she may have even slept with her paint beside her bed lol! Wash windows??? I knew we have forgotten something----sssshhhhh! Maybe Y. won’t remember lol!! Have a great week, Roger
