Dennis Novak

Dennis Novak

Funeral Director

 I was born and raised in Manitoba in the Neepawa area. Began my career in Funeral Service in 1966 at White’s Funeral Home in Neepawa. I became licensed as an Embalmer/Funeral Director in 1971. The following year along with my wife Linda and our firsr born son Jason moved to Calgary  where I joined the staff of Jacques Funeral Home. In the spring of 1973 I challenged the Alberta Exams and received my Embalmer/ Funeral Director’s License for the province of Alberta. The same year Frank Eden offered me a position with Eden’s Funeral Home, I accepted the offer and moved to Pincher Creek and have been here ever since.

Following our move to Pincher Creek, two more children were added to our family, our second son Kyle and daughter Amy.

I have never regretted choosing Pincher Creek as  a community to work and live in. Over the many years I was fortunate to have developed a good rapport with the families I have served and with many of those families I have had the honour of serving several times.

We attend St. Michael’s Catholic Church and over the years I have served on Parish Council as well as Lector and Eucharistic Minister. I am also a member of the Pincher Creek Lions Club and have filled many positions there as well.

I have experienced many changes in Funeral Service, both in trends and attitudes. I also believe that even though early in my career I was being complimentd by families for a job well done, I really wasn’t a good Funeral Director until I experienced the loss of a close family member. At that point you are able to empathize instead of imagine how that other person feels.

As I approach retirement my responsibilities have diminished allowing more time to spend with family and enjoy some travelling.

Nelson Scully

Nelson Scully

Funeral Director

Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. Nelson began his career in the funeral service industry in 2012 at Evergreen Funeral Home in Edmonton. He received his Funeral Director/Embalmers License from Canadian College of Funeral Service in 2016. Following graduation and receiving his license, Nelson worked two additional years at Evergreen. Nelson and his loving wife Anne always wanted to try living in a smaller community outside the big city. After traveling to different areas of Alberta, they fell in love with the Pincher Creek area. They made the move with their son James to Pincher Creek in the summer of 2018.

 

He and his family attend the Pincher Creek Ward at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; they are enjoying being members of that community and have found the congregation to be welcoming. They also love the family centered activities available throughout the town; as well as how warm and kind the people of Pincher Creek are to them wherever they go.

 

Nelson joined the team at Eden's Funeral Home in late 2018 and he is excited about his position at Eden’s. He looks forward to serving the community of Pincher Creek as well as the surrounding communities in the months and years ahead.
