Krystal grew up living throughout the Niagara Region. Through her school years, she attended Orchard Park Public School, AN Myer and Thorold Secondary School. Immediately following high school, she moved to Toronto and attended Humber College, to become a Licensed Funeral Director. Krystal completed her internship and continued to work at the George Darte Funeral Home, in St. Catharines, for 10 years.
During her time spent there, she had an invaluable experience, as she learned and developed an extraordinary level of standards and care that she was honoured to extend to the families she helped.
As Krystal grew into the role of being a funeral director, she proudly contemplated different ways she could effectively give back to her community. Krystal is a Past President of the Niagara District Funeral Service Association and sits on the Board of Directors with the Green Burial Society of Canada. She has been a passionate and dedicated Rotarian for the past 5 years and is the current President with the Rotary Club St. Catharines South. Krystal is the past chairperson of Spiritual Development and a member of the Catholic Women’s League. Krystal also contributes time and support to the Tool Box Project- Niagara, Hospice Niagara, and to other important community organizations.
Through the years, Krystal has had a deep desire to be a leader in her profession and within her community. She is extremely passionate about helping families in their time of need, and is committed to serving all families with the highest level of professionalism and care. For Krystal, this profession has never been “a business”, it has always been about helping and taking care of people in all capacities. Over the past 15 years, Krystal has seen first hand the change in economical times and funeral traditions. She believes in the importance and need to offer an effective and affordable death care service.
Krystal is married to her husband, David. Together they have two beautiful and mischievous boys; William (who wants to one day be a funeral director) and Alexander (who aspires to be an engineer). Also, not to forget their furry family member, Flynn!
We are proud to have created a family owned business, and consider it a great honour to have the opportunity to look after those in need of help. Our sole purpose is to always look after our community in any way possible.
