Beinhauer Family Funeral Homes
Ana Kniess, Community Outreach Director
The Beinhauer’s five funeral homes are located in Dormont, Peters Twp., Bridgeville, Bethel Park, and Canonsburg. Up until its complete rebuilding and updating in the fall of 2015, their on-site crematory had been continually operating at the Dormont facility since 1921, and had been the second oldest continually operating crematory in the United States. The cemetery which is owned by the Beinhauer family, Woodruff Memorial Park, is also located in Canonsburg. Adjacent to the human cemetery is the Beinhauer’s pet cemetery and crematory– Peaceful Pastures.
Personalized funerals are a relatively new and popular theme in funeral service. Beinhauer’s Funeral Celebrants are able to work with a clergy person or conduct funeral or memorial services alone, in order to provide a completely specialized tribute that commemorates an individual life lived.
