Directly from high school he attended Humber College and obtained his Funeral Directors License in 2012. Now residing in the town of Essex, Lucas is proud to maintain his connections with the county as well as the city. In his free time, Lucas enjoys spending time with his wife, Melissa, their two dogs, Hudson and Harper, travelling and staying active (including jumping rope with the Essex Energizers!). Lucas takes pride in the service he provides at Simple Choice as family is an ample value to him. He looks forward to serving you when trust matters most.

Allo my name is Natalie,

I was born in Windsor ON, and was raised in Tecumseh, ON close to my very large family. The other half of my family holds my heart in Shawinigan, QC. I speak French and English with some knowledge of Spanish. I started exploring the university world of art, where I somehow discovered Funeral Services was for me. I found myself at Humber College and proudly graduated with Honours in 2014, Licensed Funeral Director. The Windsor Chapel Funeral Home family has been my mentor and support since 2013. In 2017 I got the opportunity to join the Simple Choice team. My obsession to details, passion and determination is what gets me out of bed in the mornings. On Sundays you will find me at Lakeshore St. Andrews Church (LSA) where I find opportunities to contribute and volunteer in the community. When I do go away it’s to explore the wonderful world of nature; snowshoeing, skiing, mountain hiking and climbing, paddle boarding, canoeing, etc. In these mini adventures I find myself more appreciative of the value of everyday. My favourite quote is:

“Each person's grief journey is as unique as a fingerprint or snowflake.” – Earl Grollman

Becky has been around funeral service her entire life, growing up in the Thamesville/Dresden area. She graduated from Humber College, receiving her Funeral Directors License in 2002. After graduating Becky was offered a position with a large funeral home company and was given the opportunity to work as a funeral director in British Columbia. This experience has given her great insight and knowledge to assist families in creating a celebration of life that is as unique and individual as their loved one. Returning to Ontario in 2008, Becky, and her three children have settled in Comber, where she enjoys coaching as well as playing baseball. In her spare time you will usually find Becky in her quilting room working on her newest project.
