Whispering Pines Cremation Garden
The first cremation garden in northwest Pennsylvania
Reflecting the serenity of neighboring Wintergreen Gorge Cemetery, Whispering Pines' landscape includes a pond with a gentle fountain spray in the center, mature trees, a small stream and lovely gardens.
Cremation is simply a choice that reflects the preference of the deceased and family. For some people, cremation is a family burial tradition. For others it is a way in which they ensure their return to earth.
Remembering your loves ones
Whispering Pines is a lovely place of remembrance where loved ones can visit. Garden walkways wind through beautiful natural settings designed for placement of cremated remains. Many of the strong, tall trees throughout the garden have distinctive memorial markers encircling their bases.
More places of rest include quiet granite niches, an ossuary memorial wall, and even special memorial stones crafted to hold the cremated remains of two people.
Whispering Pines is owned and managed by Burton Funeral Homes, so you are assured of the highest level of service and grounds maintenance.

Thank you for the beautiful snowflake ornament with my husband’s name on it that you sent to me. It is another example of how Burton’s is top notch in caring for the families of deceased individuals.
Bill at your West Lake Branch was extraordinary in meeting the needs and wants of my family. Everything was done to perfection and though it was the most devastating time in my life, I was very happy with the way everything was done.
My husband chose Burton Westlake when we were there for calling hours for a friend. As far as I am concerned, Jim made an excellent choice that day. Thanks for everything!

To the Burton Westlake Funeral Home Family
Thank you for doing that annual service of remembrance. That was beautifully done. The piano playing, the singer, Fr. Mike reading scripture and to end with the names and tree lighting...my heart was filled with joy that evening...Thank you again for all your service.

Over the past year, you have been a tremendous help to me as I tried to move the through two very sudden and grief filled situations and deaths. My sister’s funeral went very well. She is home and laid to rest next to our parents. It was a very small, quiet service that let us bury her in a manner that let us grieve and honor her. Your help in coordinating two out of town funerals was immensely appreciated. I could not have done it without your expert help.
Your quiet understanding and very capable nature made these difficult situations more bearable.
Enjoy the summer!
Thank you for the beautiful card and words on the anniversary of Dad’s passing.

I would like to thank Burton Funeral Home for the great job performed in the funeral of my blessed brother. Shamiah did a wonderful job and went above the call of duty.
She was very professional yet so caring towards our family and her duties.
She is truly an asset to Burton Funeral Home.

To the Staff of Burton Funeral Homes and Crematory,
I am so thankful for your kindness and care for my companion and friend. He was not just an ordinary pet he was an extraordinary, local, gentle sweet service dog who helped me with balance and support for almost six years. Thank you for helping us have him close by.

My Family and I want to thank you and your staff, for being so caring. During our time of hurt. It will never be forgotten. We appreciated you coming out on a cold night to deliver my granddaughter’s bead for her necklace. She thanks you too.
The staff at Burton Funeral Home from the receptionist to the Director was excellent. They explained everything, made sure everything was taken care of and were compassionate. Thank you.
