Our Story

Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home has been serving the needs of the families of the Valley communities for almost 15 years now. Opened in 2004, the flexible, full-service facility on Pettingill Road in Quispamsis was originally established as a partnership of Brenan's Funeral Homes in Saint John and Reid's Funeral Home of Hampton to better serve a community that had traditionally turned to one of the two family firms in times of loss. By coming together Brock Reid and Stephen and Bill MacMackin realized that they could offer a full service funeral facility right in the heart of the Valley, much closer to home for hundreds of families.

With Mr. Reid's retirement in 2013, the now established business became a fully integrated part of the Brenan's organization staffed today by two full time funeral directors and an apprentice in the profession. The 'resident' staff are supported by the entire Brenan's team and ties are still maintained  with the new owners and managers at Reid's.

Now the only funeral home located in the Kennebecasis Valley communities and with the firm support of the people of those communities established, a decision was taken in 2017 to invest in a major expansion that would enable the facility to accommodate larger funeral services and create a full-service dedicated reception space - the need for both having become increasingly apparent in recent years.

When c0mpleted in the spring of 2018 the project resulted in a Chapel larger by a third and double the space for receptions. The improvements have been warmly received by those who have visited the funeral home for services and community activities since completion. Neighbours who haven't yet had an opportunity to see the new additions are welcome to drop in.
