Why order flowers through us?

Ordering through the funeral home helps ensure your order will be placed through a local flower shop with whom the funeral home has a personal and trusting relationship with. Through this service, you will be able to leave a longer message of support to the family via a card with the picture of your selection that will be included with your thoughtful gesture. As well as a photo of your arrangement and message will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender, allowing you the opportunity to choose a different arrangement if you wish.

The price of these selections also include the funeral home caring for the flowers after the funeral and delivering them to the family, or various care facilities where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Sympathy Cards

Obituary for Marius Bighetty

Marius Bighetty, known to many as Miles, was born Wednesday, July 13, 1932 in Pukatawagan, Manitoba to Marcel and Maggie Bighetty. Miles lived his entire life in Pukatawagan. Throughout his life, Miles worked for CNR on the Extra Gang for roughly 17 years. He met Margaret Bird in Pukatawagan and they were married and celebrated many happy years together. After Margaret’s passing, Miles quit the CNR and followed his love of nature, trapping and fishing off the land. Miles had a great sense of humor and enjoyed playing practical jokes on his family and friends. Faith was very important to Miles and he experienced this through the teachings of nature and enjoyed going to church. His favorite pastime was spending it with his grandchildren and he taught them the importance of respect and living off the land. Miles passed away peacefully, with family by his side, Friday, May 17, 2013 at St. Anthony’s Hospital, The Pas, Manitoba, at the age of 80 years. Miles is survived by his children Alfred Bighetty, Marcel Bighetty, Margaret (George) Thomas, and Ava Caribou; grandchildren Jason, Jeffrey, James, Kayla, Allan, Alfred, Georgina; adopted brothers and sisters through marriage, Philothie (Joe) Linklater, Genevieve (Oliver) Caribou, Celestine Colomb, Gabriel Colomb; and numerous other family members. Miles was predeceased by his wife Margaret Bighetty (nee Bird); parents Marcel and Maggie Bighetty (nee Pascal); siblings George Colomb, Blandine Daniels, Charlie Bighetty; and many relatives too numerous to mention.
