About Us

Sylvan Lake Funeral Home has been serving the families of Central Alberta from the same location in picturesque Sylvan Lake for more than 80 years.

Over many years, Sylvan Lake Funeral Home has seen several different owners: the Duffields, the Buchanans and the Flinn family since 1985.

Ed Stevenson has been the manager since 1987 when he moved to Alberta with his family from Newfoundland. Ed is married to Heather and has two sons David and Michael and two grandchildren.

Ed has been active in the community since arriving in Sylvan Lake, serving on several boards such as the Canadian Red Cross, The Royal Canadian Legion- Sylvan Lake Branch and the Sylvan Lake Community Partners Association. He is always regarded highly for his knowledge on the projects he takes interest in.

Ed Stevenson, Manager

We see, hear and understand your grief and we care about helping you through a very painful time

Jada Schroeder, Funeral Director

Jada has been a licensed Funeral Director for 3 years and has been working with the Flinn Family since 2015. She grew up in Rocky and moved to Sylvan Lake in 2015 for training as a Funeral Director. She now lives in Sylvan Lake with her fiancé Dustin, their dog, Chyna and cat, Harley. She is an avid coffee drinker, and a hot cup of coffee is never too far from her grasp.

Jada loves to bake and make specialty cakes in her spare time. She adores the mountains and outdoors and will go out every chance she gets. She loves to go home and visit her Mom, Grandma, and siblings back in Rocky. At home, she can be found binge-watching Grey’s Anatomy or with her nose stuck in a book.

As a Funeral Director Jada is deeply passionate about helping families through one of the most difficult times in their lives. She strives to go above and beyond for every family, putting together services or celebrations that are personal to the family and the decedent. She enjoys hearing stories and getting to know the loved one the family is grieving. If she leaves an arrangement or funeral a little sad that she did not get a chance to know the deceased, then she knows she has done her part well.
