The former Mountainside Funeral home has rebranded

On Jan. 1, Moutainside Funeral Home in Hope rebranded, becoming Martin Brothers Chapel of Hope Funeral Home.

The Martin Brothers’ funeral homes are located in Lethbridge, Alberta, Vancouver and Hope. They also have a yacht docked in Vancouver for ceremonies at sea, and it is available to all clients, including those in Hope.

Martin Brothers Funeral Homes are family owned, and the ownership has remained the same during this rebranding period. All monetary pre-arrangements are safe, and the funeral home is honouring all arrangements and deposits that have been made.

Dale Martin Jr. is owner and president of the company today. He is the third generation of Martins that have carried on this 105-year tradition of funeral expertise.

The Martin family is originally from Alberta, but received all their training and education in Vancouver.

Their funeral home in Hope offers a range of services, including a crematorium. They have a variety of funeral options, from traditional burials, to celebration-of-life parties, and there is something for everyone, religious or not. They have a multi-ethnic approach, and are able to provide services for a variety of different cultures.

“We listen to what clients want, and respond to that,” said funeral director, embalmer and celebrant, Valerie Martell-Kostiuk.

“And there is nothing we won’t help accomplish, we even help close bank accounts,” added Christina Thompson, funeral coordinator.

Thompson is a new addition to the team, and has been with Martin Brothers for a year. Her role as coordinator is a new concept in funeral homes.

“People can get entrenched with funeral ideas, but Christina adds a new perspective,” remarked Darin Currington, funeral director and embalmer.

Thompson’s background in event planning ensures a fresh outlook on funeral services, and she can offer clients helpful ideas.

The funeral home team is working hard to become more involved with the community and making a bigger presence at local events and charities, and focusing on accessing everything local. They want to provide a higher level of service and flexibility, so people can see funerals in a different light.

“We are striving to have the best service, and getting to know the community, and see what is available in terms of halls, parks, and caterers,” explained Thompson.

They want to extend an invitation and an open door for people to come and see what the Martin Brothers Chapel of Hope Funeral Home is all about.

“The coffee is always on,” said Thompson, and there will always be someone available to answer questions.
