Funeral Services

We have always provided families with personal, courteous service in their time of need. A funeral should be personal and meaningful. We are proud to be leading the way on how important it is to Have the Talk of a Lifetime with your family and friends.  What is Have the Talk of a Lifetime? Visit

Our staff will work with you and help you plan a service that honors your loved one and reflects the life he or she lived. In Pennsylvania, a licensed funeral director is the only person who can legally sell funeral and cremation services. We offer services to fit any situation, from traditional burial to direct cremation. The Joseph A. Tomon, Jr. Funeral Home and Crematory was the Ellwood Area’s FIRST Crematory.

On-Site Cremation

On-site cremation means your loved never leaves our care.  Our staff has performed over 5,000 cremations here since 2004.  We are the Ellwood Area’s cremation experts.  All of our crematory staff has been certified through the National Funeral Directors Association’s Certified Crematory Operator Program. You are welcome to stop by and tour our facility, including our crematory.


We offer a complete line of caskets , including steel, stainless steel, copper, bronze, and various specie of wood. We also offer cremation urns in countless styles and materials and cremation caskets.

Monuments & Headstones

We sell cemetery monuments and markers (headstones). Since we do not have the same overhead as a typical monument shop, we can offer superior quality at very competitive prices.

Online Memorials

With our online memorial service you can share memories, photos, and more, creating an everlasting online tribute to those who have passed away, and access it from anywhere in the world. The unique virtual memorial that we create will remain online for an indefinite period of time. This allows friends, family and even future generations to view the memorial and leave their own personal tributes and condolences.

Our staff will assist with all of the follow-up paperwork after the funeral, including:

  • Insurance Benefits (including Met Life, Western-Southern, Prudential, etc.)
  • Social Security
