About Us

Cochrane Country Funeral Home has been a funeral provider since 1998, serving the families of Cochrane, Canmore, Calgary, Cremona, Sundre, Bragg Creek, Springbank, and surrounding communities. Originally owned and operated by Lawrence (Larry) Slywka from 1998 – 2009 and by Ron Fitzpatrick from 2009 – 2015, we are now a Division of Pierson’s Funeral Service and we continue to provide the same compassionate care as you’ve always known. 

We employ kind, principled and compassionate men and women who believe in personal service, kindness, integrity, and value. It is our core belief that the most valuable thing we own cannot be seen or touched – it is our reputation.

It honours our business philosophy and reputation when you select us for your needs or recommend us to someone in need. We’ve built our reputation on superior service at a fair and moderate price.
