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.

Our family care team can help you every step of the way from planning a funeral service, to a burial, to a cremation memorial service.

We have a separate reception area that can seat up to 100 guests for a hot meal or 120 for a more casual reception. Our family-owned chapel partners with a variety of caterers who can serve you a six-course meal or coffee and donuts for your comfort.

Secular Services

While many of our clients come to us for religious services, secular services are a popular option as well. We can help you select readings and music of a secular variety that will appeal to a broad range of people. If religion is not your preference or did not matter to your loved one, we can help you plan a simple service with no religious overtones. Just let us know what kind of service you want.

Catholic Services

One of the main things that Korban Chapel specializes in is Catholic services. Joe Coffey and his family have intimate knowledge about what is expected for a Catholic service.

Our family care team also understands that there can be subtle nuances among the different types of Catholic services. A Filipino Catholic service is not exactly the same as a Ukrainian funeral or Portuguese Catholic service. We are open to hearing your own unique requirements and we aim to say yes to our clients whenever possible.
