Born and raised in Ottawa, I realized early on that my intended vocation was to be within the bereavement profession. Attending Humber College in Toronto, in 1996 earned my Funeral Director’s license.

In January 1997, I joined Beechwood as a Family Services Representative. Currently I serve the needs of  families from across the National Capital Region. I am also proud to be the cemetery liaison to:

* RCMP National Memorial Cemetery

* National Association of Federal Retirees (FSNA)

* Polish Congress dedicated section

* St. John the Baptist Ukrainian Catholic Shrine dedicated section

Among my contributions I initiated and implemented the 9/11 Memorial at Beechwood to honour the Canadians lost that dreadful day.

My years at Beechwood have attributed to my in-depth knowledge of the bereavement industry and the multi-faceted needs of the families I serve daily. Whatever your requests are, albeit simple or complex, I am here to make sure your experience at Beechwood has everlasting positive memories and you know the care of your loved one, and you, are my first priority.

Pre-planning is is a gift! Taking the responsiblity away from your family is one of the greatest gifts you can give. I will take you through all cemetery, funeral and estate planning requirments to be completed.


For all your questions regarding Cemetery Planning......I am here to help. Take advantage of my experience and knowledge to give you solace in knowing you have provided your family with one of the most precious gifts.........peace of mind.

Enjoy your visit,

Tania J. Turpin
