Monty and Karen Steenson
Owners of the Dreisinger Funeral Home

Karen and Monty Steenson were married in 1978. They have two married daughters and four grandchildren.

Monty and Karen purchased the funeral home in 2009 and are honoured to serve Elmira and the surrounding communities. You will find them, and their team, to be compassionate, friendly, caring, and accommodating - prepared to help in every way possible.

Karen’s administrative skills have enabled the development of the memorialization that happens at the funeral home: memory cards, slideshows, orders of service, bookmarks, and personalization of the register books.

Monty brings 38 years of experience as a funeral director, 28 of those spent as a funeral home manager or owner. He began his vocation as a teenager assisting at the local funeral home, then studied at Humber College, opening the door to a lifelong career serving others.

Dreisinger Funeral Home is a full service funeral home, offering pre-need, at need, and aftercare services. Pre-arrangements can be made for your funeral, whether you choose to pre-pay or simply have your information kept on file. At need services include packages for immediate cremation, a memorial service, or a traditional service. We also provide aftercare with a funeral director who will assist you to fill out government forms and review a detailed "Things to Do" check list.

The Dreisinger team is here for you. It is our goal that we exceed your expectations.
