Non-Licenced Staff

Although not licenced funeral directors, these members of our staff are vitally important toward the operation of our firm.  These individuals make it possible for us to professionally coordinate funerals with the quality of service our community has come to expect from us.


Robert F. Zinck, Funeral Director's Assistant

Robert, "Bob" was born in Rose Bay, N.S, educated locally and then graduated from Rogers High School in Newport, Rhode Island. After returning to Nova Scotia he taught school for two years before entering Mount Allison University. Following graduation, he attended Pine Hill Divinity College and received his Bachelor of Theology and his Masters of Divinity. He served many Pastorates throughout Canada in his 27 years of ministry.


Bob has served on many church committees, and is active in his community. He is a former board member of Bonny Lea Farm, an active member of the Mahone Bay and Area Lions Club, Child Development Committee, and a member of the church choir at Central United Church, Lunenburg. Following his retirement from the ministry in 1996, Bob and his wife Beatrice returned to the South Shore where he often works with his son Mike.

Bob's hobbies include sailing, painting, model-building, gardening and traveling.  


Beatrice L. Zinck, Receptionist

Bea was born in Blockhouse, NS. After graduating from high school, she taught school, and following her marriage, moved with her husband Bob to Chester Basin where he was Principal of the local high school. Bea has enjoyed many vocations throughout her life and especially enjoys her work with the funeral home which she finds most rewarding and challenging. Bea and Bob have five grown children and several grandchildren.

Bea has been active in many church committees and in the many communities she has lived, has volunteered her services with the respective mentally handicapped associations. Bea enjoys reading, singing, curling, cross country skiing and traveling.

Julie Knowles, Receptionist

New to Lunenburg, Julie was born in Moncton but spent several years in Montreal where she received her degree and worked in administration.

Moving to the South Shore in 1996, she quickly became involved within the artistic community where she worked and continues to perform and volunteer.
