About Us


Andy Dick

Andy Dick

Funeral Director

Born in England in 1962, Andrew’s family came to Canada in 1970. They made their first home in Grande Cache, but moved to Edson in 1973. His first relationship with Foothills Memorial Chapel was when he was 19 years old.  He serviced cars and did general maintenance in and around the building. Soon he was asked to make his first transfer from the hospital and he never looked back. In 1993 he was hired as a full time employee, shortly after he received his Funeral Directors License. He moved to Trochu in 1997 to take over Prairie Winds Funeral Home which he shortly after purchased and successfully owned until 2015. In quiet times,  he would still travel to Edson to help out at the Foothills Memorial Chapel, Edson Funeral Home throughout this time. After the sale of his own Funeral Home in Trochu his stays in Edson became longer. When the Caring Group purchased the Funeral Home he was asked to join the team on a full time basis and moved back to Edson. He takes pride in caring for each family at a time making sure their needs are met.

Our History


The history of funeral service in Edson and area dates back to 1913 when a flu epidemic swept the area. The local hospital hired a townsperson to bury the victims of the epidemic.

More formally, The Edson Funeral Parlor started business in the years that followed and was known by that name until Liberty and Anne Joy purchased the business from the local owner. The business was then known as, The Edson Funeral Home. In about 1955, Liberty and Anne Joy partnered with Connelly-McKinley Funeral Home of Edmonton and operated as Connelly-McKinley Edson Funeral Home until 1978. In 1978, Anne Joy died and Liberty Joy dissolved the partnership with Connelly-McKinley.

Edson Funeral Home (The Foothills Memorial Chapel), as it is now known, opened for business on January 1st, 1979 with Robert and Marilynn Joy.

Liberty Joy died in 1981 after serving Edson and area for more than thirty years in the funeral business.
