Like so many other residents of Southampton, Margaret and Gordon and their young family chose this community to be their home. After providing visitation and funeral services out of their small apartment, adjacent to their furniture store on High Street, Spruce Lawn Guest Home on Palmerston Street, was purchased in 1955, and became the first Funeral Home for Southampton. Many additions and many makeovers later, the Eagleson Funeral Home, Chapel and Family Centre of Southampton (Saugeen Shores) is complimented on being one of the most beautiful, warm, homey and well thoughtout facilities in the Grey Bruce Region. After many years of service in the funeral industry, involvement in his community, and dedication to his family, Gordon Eagleson passed away in 2005, leaving behind not only his proud and loving family, but, his friends and colleagues as well as a wonderful legacy in the care of others.
Frank and Doris Eagleson, in 1987, assumed the obligation of carrying on the family tradition of excellence in Funeral Service. Frank and Doris feel honoured and privileged to have owned and operated the funeral home from 1987 til 2009. Their son Chad and his wife Jodi took over the ownership of the funeral home in 2009.
Chad and Jodi not only began their adventure of owning and operating a business in Saugeen Shores together, but also worked on making the building their home where they started their young family. Hudsen, Nash and Cooper are also a big part of helping around the family run business.
The Eagleson Funeral Home is dedicated to professional, yet, personal, compassionate, and sincere service. The Eagleson Funeral Home is very proud to be considered one of Ontario’s few, 3rd generation, family owned and operated funeral homes
Chad is honoured when families place trust and confidence in Eagleson Funeral Home for help through difficult times. The funeral home offers many specialized services, such as personalized video tributes, that help in celebrating lives lived.
