If ever there was a funeral home with ties to the community, it is Smith Funeral Home.
In 1980, Don Smith and his family built and opened Smith Funeral Home. The funeral home stands on land that has been in the Smith Family since the early 1900’s, originally home to Smith Bros Dairy. At the young age of 23, Don became both part owner and managing director of the Funeral Home and in 2001, with his wife Laurene and their son Scott, they took sole ownership of the business.
In 2001, we also began offering a space for small receptions following funeral services. These receptions took place, in what was the “grey house” in front of the funeral home; this was also an original Smith Family Home. With the help of a handful of amazing ladies, this side of the business began to flourish. With a need for more space, along with needing to meet Public Health Requirements, in 2008 the Family Centre opened its new facility, incorporating the original home in the design.
It was not until 2004, that Scott followed in his father’s footsteps and received his funeral directors license. In 2009, Scott was named Managing Director and hopes to continue the professional charismatic service that his father exemplified.
As we continue to grow as a business in Sarnia and the surrounding communities, we could not provide the services we do, without the help and support of our incredible staff.
