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.

Testimonials

Melissa Hart was very helpful.

“To: Peter, There are many words I could use to express my appreciation! I want to thank you! Words can’t express how grateful I am for what you have done for my mom!
To have her look her best for the Lord, and letting me see her and to honor her. You made this happen. Your staff is a gift from God.
I never wanted this day to come so fast. When I came to Erie with my mom I had hopes and dreams for a better life. But she became ill. I had to put her in a nursing home. I never want to be without her love.
My mom, I wanted to honor her the way a daughter should. God knew this was the place for her. Many people need to know about this place. A tear comes down my face, I am blessed to know you and your staff.”

Karen,
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.
