Olson & Parent Funeral Home is an organization guided by traditional values matched by a modern approach to meet peoples needs.  We are dedicated to providing personal service to families and individuals embracing the growing trend of desiring more meaningful, affordable funeral and cremation services. 

Our guiding principle is caring for others.  We care for the  deceased, but equally important, we take care of their family, their relatives and their friends.  Our funeral directors and staff will ensure that all funeral arrangements are carried out to your exact specifications.   We will explain clearly all that is required in arranging a funeral, with the ultimate gain of taking away as much of the burden as we possibly can.

Olson & Parent Funeral Home specializes in providing care to families whom want an active role in  choosing funeral options.  While most traditional  funeral  homes promote large public visitation periods and services, we specialize in serving families who desire the flexibility to choose the funeral that results in the most meaningful expression of a life lived.  We do not assume a traditional funeral is best for all families, and understand that many expenses can be curtailed by providing more family oriented services. We provide all the necessary services of a Rhode Island licensed funeral home, but cater to the families that value service over selecting expensive caskets, merchandise, and facilities. As more appropriate intimate funeral services become increasingly favored by families, many are discovering that the simplest tradition, remains the best choice.


Formerly the William T. Forde Funeral Home
Olson & Parent Funeral Home
Today
Olson & Parent Funeral Home is an independently owned and operated funeral home located  in the historic city of Providence, Rhode Island.  Formerly The William T. Forde Funeral Home, the victorian home located at 417 Plainfield Street has been a funeral home since the 1930'S.  The home also serves as the residence for owners Tom Olson and his wife Louise Parent Olson.  

Tom Olson is a licensed funeral director and embalmer in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.  He earned a Bachelor of Science from Rochester Institute of Technology and an Associates degree in mortuary science from The New England Institute summa cum laude.  Tom was the Founders Prize recipient for excellence for his graduating year.

Tom believes in the religious and spiritual value of the funeral, but sees many changes being brought about by families living in this consumer age.  He embraces the idea that families want more options and alternatives to the age old, traditional funeral.

Tom is also an avid gardener and woodworker and maintains the property and grounds at the funeral home.  He is a member of the Rose Society of Rhode Island and planted and maintains the memorial rose garden at the home with his wife, Louise.
