Memorial Celebrations

Death touches all who live, but love ought to have the last word. At Southminster-Steinhauer, we celebrate life and grieve life’s losses in unique, personal and mutually planned Celebrations of Life or Memorial Services.

We know how important it is to honour our loved ones in ways that speak to their impact on those around them, the meaning they’ve had to those who have loved them, and the legacy that they leave us.

Many who have been part of the spiritual community or the neighbourhood of SouthWest Edmonton choose to have their remains placed in our Memorial Garden. This is a beautiful landscaped and tended garden where remains are placed and a plant dedicated in memory of our loved one.

Memorial Services held at SSUC offer the option of a reception, hosted by our capable and caring volunteers.

The Ministers and the Congregational Care team of Southminster-Steinhauer United Church are available to plan a service for pastoral care, to help you live your questions, and to discuss any plans you may be considering. If you would like to talk with us, please call 780-435-2028 or e-mail us at
