About Us

Our Team

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.

Everyone we came in contact went above and beyond the call of duty. Kind, compassionate, understanding, there are not enough adjectives to describe how we were treated.
Thanks to all!

Not many people today are appreciated for the jobs they do. It has taken me this long but wanted to let you all know I appreciate you taking care of my dog and spelling his names correctly.
He was truly a service animal but will never get the full recognition he deserved for it.
Thank you for all you do.

Mark –
I don’t know if I properly thanked you for everything you did for us. Last year was so much of a fog. But I wanted you to know how much we appreciated all that you did.

Dear Mark –
I want to thank you especially and also Patty and Terry. You were my rock during the most devastating time of my life. Every day I miss mom and dad so much. I still think it is Dad calling when the phone rings.
Took a beautiful wreath to the cemetery and saw the headstone for the first time. I cried. Now they are together forever. Again thank you so much.
