funeral arrangements can be a challenge for a family. So here at
Turner's, we try to make the process easy. Our professionals are
all licensed Pennsylvania funeral directors and they can assist
your family with all the decisions and details so that the funeral
will be special and meaningful. Turners also serves all faiths and
Traditional Services with casket and burial.
Usually includes visitation (1-2 days) with the funeral the following
day. Committal services can be at the gravesite or the funeral home.
We also offer Cremation with a memorial service
at great savings. The memorial service may be in church, our funeral
home, or at the gravesite. Ashes may also be buried on the grave
of a loved one-saving the cost of buying a grave, or ashes may
be scattered or kept by the family.
We offer a full range of urns - from fiberglass and porcelain
to wood and solid hardwood to marble and solid bronze in a whole
range of costs. Direct cremation is the most economical of options.
Families must give consent, and there is a 24 hour waiting period
As to disposition of the ashes, some cemeteries like Slippery
Rock Cemetery in Ellwood City offer niches to place your urn in
a columbarium. Others wish to utilize ground burial of the cremated
remains, many times in the gravespace of another loved one's cemetery
addition, we also offer Alternative Funeral Services
such as renting the casket followed by cremation. The only
difference between a funeral service followed by ground burial
and one followed by cremation is that the remains are taken to
the crematory instead of the cemetery. This allows the family
to have the viewing, visitations, and traditional type of funeral
with casket present.
all these services Turners offers, we can customize your service
to fit your needs and price range. We recommend that you personalize
your service to exactly fit your lifestyle and your family's wishes.
No two individuals are alike, and neither should all funerals be
the same. We offer our quiet, separate arrangements room with adjoining
selection rooms so you can make an informed decision while looking
at your leisure at our selection list and price list.
was the first funeral home in the Ellwood area to begin Celebration
of Life Services instead of the old, sad obsequies of the
funeral. In our Celebration of Life Service we celebrate a life -
and share the wonderful memories of that life and how they inspired
us. Many people change the traditional funeral into a special celebration
- many use our videos or memory boards or display collages of photos.
Others create meaningful displays on our collection tables or our
Military Medal or flag displays.
We offer our help in obtaining catering for the funeral meal, airline
reservations, motel accomodations, car and limousine rental, memorials
for the grave, temporary grave markers, automobile title transfers,
and a free notary service for our families. We also arrange for
free veterans' funeral ceremonies with formal flag folding, taps,
and flag presentation.

We also offer custom "Memorial Boards" to
show snapshots of your family. In addition we offer several easels
and other display options, such as tables, display cases, flag cases,
and medal displays for veterans. Just another reason to choose Turners.
We also sell flag cases for Veterans Flags, made by local Ellwood
veterans. We are proud of our local Ellwood City Veteran Honor Guard
and recommend them for all veterans honors/military rites.
New! We now can make video Lasting Memories Tributes for your loved
one. The family brings us 20 snapshots and we can transform them
into a DVD Video Tribute slideshow complete with graphics and beautiful
audio selections in the background. These can be run during the
visitation and kept by the family after the service. Most people
do this in a pre-arrangement as it takes an extra day to prepare
the video at-need. The cost is not as much as most people think
to create a lasting memory video.
now also offer slide shows in addition to DVDs, the funeral can
be videotaped, and Memory Portraits (an actual artist painting made
from your snapshot) are available for the viewing hours in beautiful
new software programs allow families to customize our stationary

placed onto jewelry. Additionally, we offer many keepsake items,
gift sets, and personalized stationary and thank-you's.
also now offer Pet Memorials, and can do cremation services for
pets as well as people. We have a nice line of pet cremation urns
as well as an entire selection of over 50 different urns for people.
