MEET THE DIRECTOR

Dingwell Funeral Home has been part of the Souris community since 1912. In 2017, ownership of the funeral home proudly shifted from Gary Dingwell to a fellow Islander Nathaniel Lamoureux.

As a Souris native, and proudly bilingual, Nat, his wife Jill, and their two daughters are proud to carry on the Dingwell’s proud service to both the French and English communities of Souris as the oldest family-owned operation in Prince Edward Island.
