Proud to be part of the Beechwood family, Maryse Lapalme has been a bilingual licensed funeral director in Ottawa since 1992 serving all faiths and cultures. In 1997 she became a certified preplanning consultant, and since then has dedicated her career to the preplanning aspect of funerals. She is a firm believer in planning ahead and believes that this should be a positive experience. “It is an honour and privilege to be the one my families turn to for guidance; it gives me a great sense of accomplishment knowing I have helped them organize a delicate task.”
Maryse, an only child, along with her parents Gilles & Claire Lapalme of Embrun, Ontario, has had the opportunity to reside in many different areas all over Canada. She cherishes precious memories of her education as a child in Alberta. Certified in business management, she also studied and graduated from Larocque & Lafortune Business College, The University of Ottawa in psychology, and Humber College Funeral Service Education Program.
Maryse is married to Claude Lanthier, currently residing and enjoying the beauty of Val-des-Monts, Québec. When she speaks of her babies, she is actually referring to their two dogs Mitsou & Toby, their cat Bill and their cockatiel Mika.
