The Hovie Funeral Home is a cornerstone in Sault Sainte Marie with a long history extending back to 1888 when the business was founded by Jacob Vanderhook and operated in conjuction with Vanderhook Furniture Store.
In 1926, John O. Hovie and his business partner, Jeanette MacLaren, bought the Vanderhook Company.
In 1936 the present funeral home was built.
In 1958 the partnership disolved and the business became Hovie Funeral Home.
Even though the funeral industry has seen many changes since 1888, their dedication to service and providing families with sincere care spanning three generations has remained the same.
They are proud of their history and grateful to the community that has made them a household name in Sault Ste. Marie.
