We Guide You Through The Process
Coming together to commemorate a life lost is important for everyone’s health and well being. Many people tell their family to not have a funeral or event for them when they die. Perhaps they want to shield their loved ones from the pain that their death will cause. What they don’t realize is that the pain and loss will still be felt.
Many people who have not been given an opportunity to truly grieve have found that eventually and for various reasons they are overwhelmed with grief, sometimes years later. Having a Funeral, Honouring Event, or obituary allows the family, friends, and colleagues the opportunity to come together and acknowledge the loss.
We are here to support and guide you with a variety of choices for consideration for cremation, funeral services, and burial services. We can serve you as much or as little as you need.
Give us a call as soon as you can to notify us of the death. We will make arrangements to setup a consultation in your home or at our office.
We will make arrangements for your loved one to be transferred to the funeral home.
We will register the death with Vital Statistics and deliver the death certificate to you.
We take care of all of the details for you. We guide you in writing the obituary. We are there to guide you throughout the process.
I cannot find words to express the appreciation I have for the care, and professionalism extended to me at the worst time in my life. I lost my husband, and was in shock, but Laurie was right there to guide me through. There was no pressure, just compassion and understanding when I needed it most. All his, and my wishes were carried out with the greatest respect, and attention to detail.
The loss of a loved one is a very sensitive time, when emotions can get the better of the bereaved. Laurie has a very calming presence, and seems to instinctively know how to help, and always went above and beyond what one would normally expect.
I highly recommend Laurie, and her Company ANORA Cremation, Burial & Events to anyone who has lost a loved one.
Laurie was compassionate and supportive, especially with a very young client. She took the time to explain everything thoroughly and gave my daughter the necessary time to make the best possible decisions about her father's funeral. She was thoughtful and inclusive with family members with exceptional needs. She coordinated with out of town relatives. She went way above and far beyond.
It has been a great privilege to have worked with Ms. Laurie Hurtubise for about three years at a local Funeral Home. She is one of the most dedicated funeral directors that I have encountered. Laurie always has a positive attitude and respect. Despite the stressful nature of her vocation, she always serves the deceased and their families with professionalism, dignity and genuine care and concern for their needs and emotions. When needed, she goes beyond her required duties to do her best to meet the needs of the families. I recommend her services.

I recently referred Laurie and her team to a friend who had 2 tragic deaths in her family. Due to covid, the service was delayed but they were finally able to celebrate a few weeks ago. My friend was in such good hands and the two of them connected so well. The service was beautiful. A wall of jerseys and other precious keepsakes were displayed at the front. Anora took care of everything and in spite of the circumstances it was a beautiful event.
Laurie from ANORA came into our lives when our dear friends unexpectedly and suddenly lost their young daughter. I look back now at those first few weeks after such a tragic loss and I am incredibly grateful for the support, counselling, and guidance we received. ANORA helped us navigate the type of decisions to be made and seamlessly organized our celebration of life. Most importantly, they were able to provide many thoughtful and creative suggestions on how to customize key decisions/outcomes to be unique and representative of the individual we were honouring. I am very thankful to do this day, that ANORA was there when we needed it the most.
I simply can’t thank ANORA enough for their help in putting together the perfect personalized cremation box for my husband. It is the perfect tribute to him. Thank you for your kindness.
