Since last Spring, our Kearney’s team has demonstrated a unique ability to adapt to the necessary changes in the way we operate. As an essential service, we have continued to serve families who experienced the loss of a loved one by being flexible in the way we structured our arrangements and services. The health and safety of our staff and the families we serve are paramount.
Kearney’s has served the Catholic community in the Lower Mainland for more than 112 years. Thomas Kearney established our business in 1908. In time, his daughter Ellen Kearney Crean took over from him, followed by her sons and now, her grandson Ryan Crean is responsible for the operation of four Kearney locations in Vancouver, New Westminster, Burnaby and Cloverdale.
In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever that we turn to those we trust to ensure that our loved ones are cared for with compassion and understanding. At Kearney’s, we understand that it is comforting to those who mourn to witness the age-old traditions of a Catholic Funeral. We know what is involved in planning a Catholic Funeral and Burial (or cremation, if that is your preference), We will be happy to help coordinate your wishes with your Parish Priest.
Throughout the process of planning for a loved one’s Funeral, Kearney’s staff adheres to the highest level of safety protocols that have been established by BC’s Public Health Officer and others responsible for ensuring the health and safety of British Columbians. We are diligent in following the guidelines that have been established for those coming in to our facilities to make arrangements and for those attending Funerals. We follow all requirements in our facilities for social distancing and sanitizing.
If you need our services, please call one of our offices to speak with one of our knowledgeable, professional Funeral Directors. You can attend one of our offices to make Funeral arrangements or we can accommodate your wishes to do this planning by phone or email.
Kearney’s mission is to serve the Catholic community in the Lower Mainland and, in recent times, it has become our mandate to do this in the safest manner possible.
