Grief Support Calendar

Experiencing the death of a loved one is one of the most difficult things we face in life. Even if you feel loved by friends and family or supported by a faith community, there may be a time you simply need someone else to listen to the story of your loved one, or you may be in need of resources regarding the many aspects of grief. Boulger Funeral Home is available to assist you through our grief support coordinators.

Ann Jacobson and Sonja Kjar are Boulger Funeral Home’s Grief Support Coordinators. They have years of experience walking with people on the journey of life, through the valley of the shadow of death, and through the joys and sorrows that are a part of living in this world.

As Grief Support Coordinators, Ann and Sonja are willing to meet one on one, or via zoom or phone call if you are interested in more immediate conversation. 

Ann or Sonja they can be reached at or call Boulger Funeral Home at 701-237-6441.
