Gentle Care Crematory

With Cremation, Your Choices of Remembrance Gatherings and Memorialization are Unlimited

A gathering with the loved one's body present facilitates mourning.  Mourning is nature's way of dissipating grief.  We humans, after millennia of saying, "Goodbye", have never come up with anything more moving and cathartic.  For those who companioned their loved one through sickness or found their loved one after some tragedy, this type of service can be additionally beneficial.   Survivors are provided a more comforting memory picture to carry forward.

A gathering with the urn, containing a loved one's cremated remains, can be very meaningful.  Through the use of photographs, video, story sharing, music and memory tables,  family and visitors' relationship and feelings are validated and affirmed.

Possibly a private gathering at your home, cabin, a stadium or beach is the right place to say, "Goodbye".  We can suggest many unique ways to make a formal or very informal service at such locations memorable.

Memorialization can be as simple as a carving on a tree, deep in the forest or on a stone at the mountain top.   It can be a perfectly created monument in a cemetery; a cemetery offers a permanence that few private places can.  Memorialization can be of benefit to mankind, such as gifts to charities and other important causes.  It can be a book, easily created about your loved one's life.  https://try.my.yesterday.net/start-trial   Memorialization can be all these things and more.


Your choices are anything but limited when choosing cremation.  After considering all of the options, all that really matters is - what feels right to you?

Below are the most often asked questions regarding the actual cremation process. Included in our responses are the services and extra care we are proud to offer.

There are very few crematories compared to the number of funeral homes in the McKeesport/White Oak area.  Most funeral homes transport individuals entrusted to their care to an offsite crematory, for refrigerated storage and cremation.

We have our own Gentle Care Crematory.  An entrusted loved one never leaves our care.  Moreover, we do not perform cremations for other funeral homes. Therefore, our Gentle Care Crematory is serene and reverent, and the possibility of visual or unsupervised access to a loved one by outside personnel is eliminated.


If you have other questions, please call or request a tour of our facility!
We will be proud to show you our Gentle Care Crematory.
