The Funeraweb company was founded in August of 2005 after the passing of a friend, Sylvie Légaré, who was 37 years old and had fought a long and valiant battle against cancer. The founders, Chantal Lepage and Mario Duchesneau, who wanted to pay tribute to her and leave her loved ones with invaluable memories, produced a video montage of Sylvie's life, which was played on a big-screen television during her wake at the funeral home as well as on the web at www.funeraweb.com.

The funeral home ambiance that normally reigns under such dire circumstances was transformed into a true celebration of life.

This new funerary concept meets an ever-growing desire expressed by families to perpetuate the memory and the very essence of the dearly departed in a professional manner and in good taste. Since its inception some 12 years ago, well over 20,000 families have chosen to take advantage of this service, now part of a wide variety of multimedia funeral souvenirs appreciated by everyone.
