Our Story

Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.

Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

Learn the legacy.

Cedarcrest Cemetery has been owned and operated by the Winemiller family since 1981. In 1981, John Winemiller Sr. and wife Elsie Winemiller purchased the cemetery with the intention of teaching their son the business and one day allowing him to take over. 

John and Elsie served the community as owners for 5 years until 1986. In those 5 years they were able to establish a reputation of trust and loyalty to our community.

 In 1986, son John Winemiller Jr. and wife Donita Winemiller took over the cemetery. In their nearly 30 years of ownership, they had to opportunity of serving many families and showing our community that we are not just another 'cemetery' but that we approach life and death differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.

On February 27, 2016 John Winemiller Jr. went to be with the lord. The 3rd generation of the Winemiller family, son Jeremy Winemiller and daughter Chastity Newman now run the cemetery as a brother and sister team. We are committed to carrying the same tradition of trust and excellence that our parents and grandparents established. We will continue to operate in a manner that our name symbolizes integrity.
