About Us

burton family

From generation to generation, Burton has worked closely with one of the most respected national associations — Selected Independent Funeral Homes — to offer the highest level of professionalism to families and individuals of all walks of life, religions and financial circumstances.

You will find our staff to be compassionate, caring and knowledgeable and each of our four homes to be welcoming and comforting. We provide the perfect place for your family to honor and celebrate the life of your loved one. We are dedicated to providing the support and information you need whether making arrangements in advance or at the time of a loved one’s death.

We recognize that during a time of loss families and their friends need a place where they are nurtured and cared for.

Moreover, we continually update our facilities and services to better serve you. Burton has convenient all-faith chapels at each location and we offer on-site cremation so you know your loved one is treated with respect and care.

We also offer pet loss services, cemetery memorials, and Whispering Pines Cremation Gardens, a beautiful resting place designed especially for cremated remains.

Karen,
Over the past year, you have been a tremendous help to me as I tried to move the through two very sudden and grief filled situations and deaths. My sister’s funeral went very well. She is home and laid to rest next to our parents. It was a very small, quiet service that let us bury her in a manner that let us grieve and honor her. Your help in coordinating two out of town funerals was immensely appreciated. I could not have done it without your expert help.
Your quiet understanding and very capable nature made these difficult situations more bearable.
Enjoy the summer!
Thank you for the beautiful card and words on the anniversary of Dad’s passing.

Dear Karen,
I want to personally thank you all for your help with my mothers funeral.

Thanks to your diligent effort, the white bird release at the cemetery was very touching.


I also cannot begin to tell you how many people commented on what a nice newspaper writeup you did for moms obituary. I, along with my family appreciate your and everyone's endeavor to help us get through this difficult period.
