My name is Ed Stephan and along with my wife Terry are the
Kneehill and West View Funeral Services. I have over 30 year’s experience as a funeral director/embalmer in Alberta. I have worked since 1989 in the Three Hills, Trochu and Olds areas. Our funeral home is truly a “Mom and Pop” operation. We have a funeral home in Three Hills, Olds and a funeral home and crematorium in Trochu. As for staffing, I am the only full time employee and along with my wife and a dedicated assortment of part-time employees have been in operation as Kneehill Funeral Services since 2008 and West View Funeral Services since 2013. I do not have an answering service, I hate them, especially in this business. I honestly love this work. I believe that we have and do provide above quality service at below average prices. Frankly, our lower overhead allows us to adopt this policy. We also actively promote the participation of families the memorialization of their loved ones, it may be as simple as acting as a greeter at the register, ushering the congregation, too making their own urns, cremation containers or caskets. We also actively work with Alberta Government Agencies such as AISH and are Funeral Service Providers for the Red Deer Memorial Society.
