History of East Prince Funeral Home

‚Äč

In the late 1980's, a group of citizens from the East Prince area met to discuss the possibility of establishing a co-operative funeral home. Two such homes were operating successfully in Prince County, namely the West Prince Funeral Home in Palmer Road and the Evangeline Funeral Home in Urbainville. As a result, on January 24th, 1989, the East Prince Funeral Co-operative Ltd. was formed. The first president was Gilles Michaud, along with other board members: Adrien Bernard, Joe Cormier, Joan Hill, Aage Johnson, Harold Linkletter, Carl MacLean, Reg MacRae, Robert Mutch, Wendell Phillips, Ivan Pineau and Martin Richard. Land was purchased on the Pope Road in Summerside where a building was constructed and the first funeral service was conducted in January 1990.

At this time there are over 1000 families who are shareholders of this funeral home. Funeral Director Larry MacKinnon is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the funeral home. Mr. MacKinnon has been a licensed funeral director for the past 22 years and has been with the East Prince Funeral Home since 1997.
