Funeral Home Reviews
Washington, Pennsylvania
Dealing with CR and his crew is like dealing with a bunch of poorly trained monkeys. My father died very suddenly, without any true preparation in funerary matters. So you'd think that Piatt&Barnhill would take the opportunity to do the best job they could. They didn't. Created by CR and his terrible toupee our questions were greeted by a series of bumbling "uhs" and "I don't know". If my father's body wasn't already in transit I would have walked out then and know now what I do, I should have. But that was only the beginning. After countless clerical errors on the death certificates, they refused to mail them to us. Demanding that we stop in and pick them up. For being in the business of helping alleviate stress and work during a time of grief theses people, they fail immensely.

Driving thru your town on Monday nite I saw your sign and wondered if my Grandfather Leo Martin Finnegan Sr who was a funeral director in Minot North Dakota in the 1920s to the late 1940s is possibily related to the person behind the Finnegan name. My Grandfather was from Minnesota and was traveling to I believe Cutbank to work but got off the train in Minot saw my Grandmother and never left. My Mother is 89 and when I told her she wanted me to check as she is the last member of her family.You can contact me by email @ duddlebug322@msn.com if this is a possability. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Judy Steinhadt daughter of Margaret Ellen Finnegan Penne
