History of Foster & McGarvey Funeral Homes
Foster and McGarvey was started by Harold P. Foster who was born July 26, 1900 and died May 11, 1929.
Foster purchased the McCoppen Funeral Home in Edmonton and did well until his untimely death.
His wife Jean V. Foster hired Donald McGarvey Sr. and she later sold the firm to Don and moved to Ottawa.
Eventually Foster and McGarvey was operated by Don Jr and his mother Kay McGarvey.
Foster McGarvey moved to its new location on 10011 – 114 Street in February of 2006.
