Penticton Chapel (Established 1983) 1258 Main Street, Penticton
Providence’s Penticton Chapel was established in 1983 by the Werner Henseleit family on the 200 block of Martin Street in Penticton. Later they purchased a house on the corner of Bennett and Calgary Ave. to renovate and function as a full service funeral home. In 1987, a major renovation was underway and a larger chapel and reception area were added. In 1998 the Henseleit business was sold to an American Company (SCI).
In February 2006, Providence’s Penticton Chapel and Providence Funeral Homes & Crematorium once again became a family operation with the purchase by Ron and Taraleigh Crooker.
The Summerland Chapel is a heritage style building and was originally the home of John Tamblyn, principal of the Summerland High School.
Rosedale Chapel was established by the Henseleit family in 1995. At the same time, Summerland Funeral Chapel was operated separately by SCI. In 1998, the American company SCI purchased Rosedale Chapel and amalgamated the two facilities to become Summerland Rosedale Chapel. In February of 2006, Summerland Rosedale Chapel returned to being operated as a family business with the purchase by Ron and Taraleigh Crooker of Providence Funeral Homes.
Providence Crematorium, originally named Okanagan Crematorium, is the oldest cremation operation in the South Okanagan. It is located in the Northwest corner of Lakeview Cemetery in Penticton. It has a rustic picturesque setting, overlooking Okanagan Lake and the city of Penticton.
It is part of the Providence family and owned and operated by Ron and Taraleigh Crooker.
