A success story
The story of Les Residences et les Jardins Funéraires
Bessette began when Georges A. Bessette started working in the funeral
profession. His experience led him to acquire the Waterloo and Valcourt
funeral homes in 1971, after which he was joined in the business by
his daughter Lucie and his sons Claude, Robert, and Raymond, all three
of whom earned degrees in thanatology.
Those first funeral homes were followed by numerous acquisitions:
No history of the Bessette family's success would be complete without
mentioning the construction of their modern complex, Les Jardins Funéraires
Bessette, began in 1992. First, a crematorium and a columbarium were
built. Then the complex took shape, set in a cemetery that complies
with government environmental standards. Landscaping provided the
final touches, and the complex opened its doors in October 1998.
- In 1987, the Bessette family built the Bromont funeral home.
- In 1988, the family acquired Salon Funéraire Drummond
in Granby and Salon Funéraire Victor Rochon in Roxton Pond.
For over 30 years, the Bessette family has been serving families
in a way that reflects its fundamental values and sense of tradition.
Compassionate, personal service has paved its way to success in
the funeral profession.
