Hi! I’m Natalie, owner and operator of Transcona
Cremation & Funeral Services Welcome to my website and an introduction to
who we are.
I was born and raised in a small rural
Franco-Manitoban farming community south west of Winnipeg. Nature, farming and
a connection to the land has been a part of my life from childhood. Life’s
natural cycles and the process of birth, living and dying have always been a
part of my life. After graduating from high
school, I immersed myself in education. I started with bookkeeping for
small business before going on to graduate from Western School of Funeral
Service and becoming a licensed funeral director and embalmer in Manitoba.
After working for independent traditional funeral
homes for over 20 years, I have decided to fulfill a career long desire to
provide bereaved families with what they truly want: simple, straight forward
and affordable final arrangements, an alternative to the traditional funeral home. I
believe in the value and importance of funerals, but I also believe it could be
done at an affordable and honest cost to the families I serve. Listening to
what their wishes are and providing it.
Outside of my professional life, I enjoy living an
active life with my two sons and loving partner, Scott. We can often be found
traveling to the mountains for our snowboarding adventures, camping where ever
we can find a spot, fishing the Manitoba lakes, hiking, and biking.
