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, 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.

Obituary for Peter Edward Pope

POPE, Peter Edward - Born in Montreal on September 15, 1946, died at dawn on April 4, 2017, with his loving family by his side in St. John's. Predeceased by parents Margaret and Ted Pope, Peter is survived by wife Geneviève Duguay, daughters Laura and Molly Pope (mother Sharon Gray), sister Peggy Pope (Martin Palmer), niece Amanda Barney, nephew Felix Pope (Yui Ito), stepdaughter Clarence Duguay, aunt Ann Dunbar and cousins Jamie, Jennifer and Debbie. Peter led an eclectic life and was a storyteller until the end. A carpenter for many years, he built his home in Flatrock. His eminent career in archeology and historical research led to many awards and accolades. Peter contributed significantly to our understanding of early modern life in Newfoundland and Labrador, and conveyed its importance locally and abroad, notably as director of the Newfoundland Archeological Heritage Outreach Program and member of the Royal Society of Canada. Peter helped establish the LSPU Hall and Resource Centre for the Arts as an important crucible for the arts and artists of the province. He played saxophone in the Battery Big Band and he wrote a play about a moose. In short, a bon vivant. Peter will be remembered for his passion for knowledge, his whacky sense of humour and his earnest love of a good story. Visitations will be held at Barrett's Funeral Home 328 Hamilton Ave, Sunday and Monday April 9 and 10, at 2-4pm and 7-9pm. A celebration of his life to be held at Flatrock Community Centre, 495 Windgap Road on Wednesday April 12, 2017 at 7pm. . In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Dr. Peter Pope Scholarship Fund being established in his memory at Memorial University or to the Princess Margaret Hospital, Toronto, for ocular oncology care and research.
