- About Us
Korban Funeral Chapel has built a legacy by helping families create beautiful memorials and funerals for their deceased loved ones. Saying goodbye is never an easy experience but our caring team makes the process as comfortable as possible. Korban Funeral Chapel has been serving the greater Winnipeg area since 1977 with affordable funeral services that fit within your budget.
Our history is long and steeped with family life long tradition. Korban Funeral Chapel was originally established by Martin and Helen Korban and along with their son, Richard, they ran the funeral home in Winnipeg for decades. After Martin passed away in 2001, the funeral home was directed by Richard and Donna, his wife.
The story would not be complete without bringing in their fellow friend and funeral director, Joe Coffey. In 2016, Richard and Donna passed the business onto Joe and he has been running it with his family ever since.
Joe grew up in the Manitoba area and went on to study philosophy and theology for priesthood with the Basilian Fathers. From there, he began to study to become a funeral director. Because of his extensive education and experience, Joe Coffey has trained funeral directors and embalmers across the country. You can rest assured that you are in capable and competent hands when you trust Korban Funeral Chapel to be your go-to funeral home in Winnipeg.
