The staff at Garden of Memories have been so great to work with. I used Garden of Memories for my mother and my father's funeral and both times they have been so kind and compassionate. Carrie Bruno made sure all the details were perfect and that everything ran smoothly. I cannot recommend Garden of Memories enough!

A few months I left a not so good message about The Garden of Memories and I was wrong! I want to apologize wholeheartedly. I was going through a very hard time with losing my father and now I look back at the service we got from Garden of Memories was top notch. From picking up my dad from his home, the service and deacon was incredible and the final burial that day was done with care. I can't remember the deacon name but he was fantastic. Thank you Garden of Memories! Tommy Gagliano

No words can say what Marilyn and John did for me with the death of my grandmother. it was by far the hardest thing I have done.
Marilyn worked with me daily for a week to plan her funeral, even well after hours. Marilyn is a true angel. Thank you for everything :)

My cousin recently passed suddenly and I live out of state. We needed her cremated for a later memorial in another town. Marilyn helped with the arrangements and was most compassionate and helpful for it to be as smooth as possible. I highly recommend this home for your loved ones.

Ryan Pierce and Toni helped my family and I with all of the funeral services for my dad. They made the process simple and treated us with compassion and respect throughout the process. It made a difficult time for our family a little more bearable. They walked us through each step of the process, answered all our questions, and made sure that everything was taken care of. The services were beautiful and I will be forever grateful for all of their help.

Carrie and Ryan guided me and my brother through the burial process for my Dad with such ease and compassion. His services were beautiful and they helped us make sure his wishes were honored. Afterwards Ryan provided us with a check list of what needed to be done which was so helpful. I highly recommend Garden of Memories and its wonderful staff!!

My wife and I began several months ago looking into making burial arrangements and had contacted three different facilities. One of them was Garden of Memories and Tanya Angelo. We signed the paperwork yesterday for a bench and location for it. I had expected the experience would be like buying a car, that it would be more difficult than pleasant. We were surprised, and our expectations exceeded. Tanya was very pleasant, friendly, upbeat, concerned with getting just what we wanted, never trying to up sell and nothing but a pure pleasure to work with. I will highly recommend her to friends and family. We are satisfied with our beautiful bench, and it's settings. Something we can be proud of.
Thanks Tanya for all your expertise.

I was very pleased with Garden of Memories especially with the lady who assisted us through this difficult time, Marilyn Strecker. She was very nice & compassionate & has a very sweet consoling spirit. I will never forget how she helped us walk through this difficult time.


From the time we came and pre-planned about a month before my mom passed to the final arrangements after her passing, everyone we dealt with was wonderful! Everyone there is so compassionate and professional and truly make a difficult time so much easier! A special thanks to Ryan and Carrie!!

The compassion, empathy and kindness shown to me by your staff and especially Marilyn Strecker. She truly kept me sane during all of this horror and overwhelming grief.


Longstanding relationship. Carrie Bruno is great - very responsive and kind.


I have always done business with Garden of Memories. They are kind and caring and very efficient. They do all they can to get the task done - whatever that may be. My most recent experience was nothing less than perfect.


Our first experience with Garden of Memories was 11 years ago, and our most recent was last month. We currently have three immediate family members buried there along with numerous other family members. The grounds are beautiful, meticulously maintained and safe. The entire staff is professional, knowledgeable, helpful, efficient and caring. Any questions or concerns which we have had over the years have consistently been handled immediately and completely to our satisfaction. Most recently, Stephanie and Carrie handled the burial of our Mother during the Covid-19 pandemic. With all of the State restrictions, they were still able to provide a most comforting and caring environment for our consultation. They bent over backwards to make sure that we had a beautiful service for our Mother in spite of all of the limitations imposed onto them. We will be forever grateful to them and to Garden of Memories for making the BEST of a terrible situation. We take a tremendous amount of comfort in knowing that our future burial needs will be handled by Garden of Memories in a completely compassionate, caring, comfortable way and with the utmost of professionalism and dignity.


Professional and caring staff. They are patient and really listen to what expectations you wish to have.


Professional staff. Like the cemetery. Like the parlor for funeral. Enjoy grief support emails very much each day.👍


The staff is very helpful, friendly and understanding. The process was easy, and even with the current restrictions, the small service was special.


Throughout the whole arrangement process we as family members felt comfort and assurance coming from each person we dealt with while making decisions. Suggestions were offered when we asked for guidance but we were never pressured in any way.


The funeral director Carrie Bruno went above her duty and managed to help our family undo the prearrangement my mother had planned. Carrie stepped in and made the transition smooth and quick. This is worth mentioning because the country was shut down during the covid19 pandemic. Carrie really got things done quickly and it was a comfort to our family.


My mother and father have a plot at Garden of Memories. The care, love and concern that we received from Carrie Bruno was unbelievable. She handled everything and went above and beyond by dropping paperwork off so that I wouldn't have to go out with COVID 19. She was a true blessing in a time of great need. Thank you isn't enough.


It was made very easy for us during a difficult time to get everything arranged. Ryan and Carrie were caring and helpful.
