Joe and Kimberly Coffey purchased Christie's Funeral Home in 2017 and also own and operate Sneath-Strilchuk Funeral Home in Roblin. They live on a small cattle farm East of Togo and enjoy the country lifestyle.
Joe grew up on a farm in Ethelbert, MB and completed his high school at St. Vladimir's College in Roblin. After studying philosophy and theology for the priesthood with the Basilian Fathers he went on to answer a vocation to funeral service. After working for a large company in Winnipeg and earning his professional designations he became the owner and president of the Canadian College of Funeral Service, training funeral directors and embalmers across the country.
In search of a quieter lifestyle, Joe brought his young family back to his roots, the Manitoba countryside between Roblin and Kamsack. Joe and Kimberly, along with their team of family care professionals, enjoy serving the people of this area and are grateful to the many families who place their trust in them.

Services will proceed in accordance with suggested government guidelines of gatherings up to 10 people. We understand and anticipate attendance at services will diminish.

We will also be recording and uploading services to a secure website to make the services accessible for those who are unable to attend.
We encourage everyone to follow the guidelines in regards to washing your hands frequently and avoid touching your face. We support these efforts and want to remind everyone to make use of our website to offer condolences and to communicate with the family.
In addition to our high standards of cleanliness and safety, we are taking extra precautions to sanitize and disinfect our facilities, especially high touch surfaces such as doorknobs, taps, washrooms, desks, computers etc.
We will continue to monitor and adhere to CDC guidelines, along with the recommendations of our federal and provincial health officials and do our best to share this information with you.
