Kelly Froese

Kelly Froese

Manager, Licensed Funeral Director, Embalmer, Certified Cremation Technician

Kelly grew up in the Swift Current area to a farming family who believed in commitment to community and a life of service.  This initially led him to a life of ministry with an education from Central Pentecostal College becoming a Pastor.  This path lead Kelly and his family to Kindersley in 2000 where he ministered to his congregation and anyone who found their way to him in their time of need.  Kelly found transitioning to the funeral profession in 2009 natural with his ability to connect with people who are grieving and helping guide them with their funeral arrangements.

Kelly and his wife are busy with raising the last of (5) sons, and during his free time he maintains a strong connection with his church family, as well as staying active with recreational volleyball, floor hockey, and an occasional round of golf.


Debbie Perrin

Debbie Perrin

Office Manager

Debbie Perrin has been with us since 2004, she came to Kindersley in 1975 when she married her husband Robert.

Together they farmed and raised 3 +1 children on the farm Southwest of town.  Today she loves being a grandma to her 5 grandchildren and helping her kids out when she can.  During her free time, she also loves to read, camp in summers and travel abroad.

Since Debbie has been in Kindersley, she has been involved in many areas through both work and volunteerism; and with that she has come to know many families.  So, when a family comes into our building for the first time, chances are that Debbie already knows them and their families.

Pamela Greschner

Pamela Greschner

Licensed Funeral Director, Embalmer, Certified Cremation Technician

Having grown up in the Dodsland area, Pamela is quite familiar with many of the local families.  As an adult she moved around in the Western Canadian provinces doing a variety of jobs, but her desire to help others had her gravitating towards a career in the funeral industry.  She had worked at several other funeral homes during her training, and with that she brings to Kindersley Funeral Home a wide range of experience.  Pamela feels strongly about being able to help her families knowing a funeral only happens once, she finds it is an honour and privilage to be able to help people through such a difficult time, and be able to give family a memorable and final farewell of their loved one.

During her free time, she is busy with her beautiful daughter, her large extended family, she enjoys working on DIY projects, home renovations, music and crafting.


Brandi Cales

Brandi Cales

Licensed Funeral Director, Certified Cremation Technician

Brandi came to Kindersley as a young person 34 years ago with her family who ran the local bakery.  During this time, she had completed her high school education, and had done a variety of things which all seemed to be based around community service. 

She joined Kindersley Community Funeral Home in 2020 where she quickly obtained her Cremation Technician certification.  While shadowing the Funeral Directors, she realized that this was something she wanted to do.  She is our newest Funeral Director on staff but comes with much experience listening to people, and a desire to help families in their time of need.

Her free time is spent raising 3 children and supporting them with their various group activities.  She is also busy supporting her community with her social group involvement, camping in summer, and showing her creative side with many D.I.Y. projects.

Jeanne Krentz

Jeanne Krentz

Funeral Home Support

Jeanne came to Kindersley with her husband and (at the time) 2 daughters in 1997.  Her husband was busy with his Saskatchewan Wheat Pool career, and she with hers in E.M.S. while also raising their (now 3) daughters.  She was born and raised in Lanigan SK into a family which had a strong belief in service, community involvement, and volunteerism, which she carried over into over 28 years with Emergency Medical Services as a paramedic.  Upon retiring from E.M.S. in 2014, the transition to the funeral home seemed a natural way of continuing to care for people.  She believes that the ability to communicate with someone during their time of crisis and figuring out what their needs are, can transfer over to that same person during their time of grief.

When she manages to find some free time, Jeanne loves to do anything involving her family such as camping, traveling, or visiting friends.  To unwind, there is always a knitting project to complete, reading an interesting book, while listening to good music.
