Whispering Pines Cremation

The first cremation garden in Northwest Pennsylvania

whispering pines 3 copyReflecting 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

I am tremendously grateful to you for how beautiful my loved ones funeral turned out. I have heard how you are in a fog at this time and now I know exactly what that means.
However, I feel fully confident in you all at Burton Funeral Home and the professionalism that you showed. I received so many compliments from various people.
I also wanted to accommodate you on your staff. The girls in your office could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Whoever picks your employees could not choose finer people.

Not many people today are appreciated for the jobs they do. It has taken me this long but wanted to let you all know I appreciate you taking care of my dog and spelling his names correctly.
He was truly a service animal but will never get the full recognition he deserved for it.
Thank you for all you do.
