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.

We would like to thank Burton Funeral Home for its generous donation of holiday stockings for our residents. The veterans enjoyed the various treats, puzzle books, socks, and lottery tickets, as well as other various items. Thank you for recognizing our veterans and their service to our country during the holiday season.

Thanks to all!

I couldn't have asked for a more dedicated, caring person to assist in our time of sorrow. I need to thank you for everything, honestly without you and your kind heart I'm not sure that it would have been possible, so THANK YOU!

I wanted to thank you for offering and then sending ornaments in memory of my parents. It was a source of comfort in this first Christmas without them.

Thank you again.

I am tremendously grateful to you for how beautiful my loved ones funeral turned out. I have heard how you are in a fog at this time and now I know exactly what that means.
However, I feel fully confident in you all at Burton Funeral Home and the professionalism that you showed. I received so many compliments from various people.
I also wanted to accommodate you on your staff. The girls in your office could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Whoever picks your employees could not choose finer people.

To the Burton Westlake Funeral Home Family
Thank you for doing that annual service of remembrance. That was beautifully done. The piano playing, the singer, Fr. Mike reading scripture and to end with the names and tree lighting...my heart was filled with joy that evening...Thank you again for all your service.
