Valerie Feniuk - Service Attendant
Although they are not licensed funeral directors, these staff members are vitally important to the operation of our firm. These individuals make it possible for us to professionally coordinate funerals with the quality of service our community has come to expect from us.
The staff were so compassionate, down-to-earth, and responsive to any of our requests…we were confident that we did not have to worry about any of the details and could instead focus on the spiritual and emotional aspects of honouring our father. To a person, the staff did an exemplary job of supporting our family and easing our burden. Llwellyn A.
My family's professional relationship with Cropo goes back over 30 years to my baba's funeral services in 1980. I have very specific memories of some components - mostly centred at Cropo's and their services for this was my first funeral. Since that time, every family funeral has had professional services provided by Cropo. Most recently, when my father died, Cropo was of course our funeral home of choice. The services provided by the management and staff of Cropo today echo the strong tradition of excellent service from over 30 years ago. The whole team at Cropo provided amazing service from the first meeting, to the funeral, to the luncheon, to the driving -real people providing real help when you need it.
