A Legacy of Service

Family Serving Family Watch Video

Over the last 25 years, we have been dedicated to our clients
and committed to providing exceptional service.

Cornerstone Funeral Home Ltd., open in the fall of 1995, was the first funeral home in southern Alberta to have all amenities under one roof. Cornerstone also offers an Aftercare Program which assists families with the multitude of forms to be completed in the days following the funeral.

As a way of acknowledging the loved one's anniversary and giving back to the community, Cornerstone offers complimentary Memorial Doves to all families that have lost a loved one. Since they opened Cornerstone, Ralph and Faith Zentner have given out over 100,000 Memorial Doves to bereaved families of southern Alberta.

Cornerstone has been honoured to win the Business of the Year Award in the Professional/Service Category in 2002. They were also presented the Estelle Botfield Memorial Award for excellence in customer service, as well as being one of the finalists for the Provincial Award from the Chamber of Commerce. Ralph and Faith Zentner were also selected as finalists for the Better Business Bureau Award of Distinction, a province-wide event.

Our team at Cornerstone is truly honoured to serve.
