Pre-planning Arrangements

PreplanningThere are many benefits to making pre-arrangements for your funeral. In fact, it’s one of the most thoughtful things you can do for your family…and yourself.

  • Pre-planning lets you make your wishes known, so your loved ones don't have to guess if they are doing the right things.
  • Pre-planning eliminates emotional overspending by your loved ones during a time of grief and sorrow.
  • Pre-planning lets you personalize your funeral that honors you, your religious and cultural traditions and personal preferences.
  • Pre-planning relieves your family of future financial responsibility.
  • If your children or next of kin live out of town, pre-planning will ease the stress and emotional burden they could experience in making hasty arrangements from afar or local on-the-spot decisions.

To pre-arrange your funeral or of a loved one, visit any of our four locations. Or, we’re happy to visit your home and discuss matters there. Make an appointment and get all of your questions answered today by calling Terry Colvin, Burton’s director of pre-planning, at 814-454-4551.

Get started online by filling out this convenient pre-planning form and sending your information to us today. We will contact you as a follow up and help you complete the arrangements.

To complete pre-planning, your Social Security number is required. Burton’s director of pre-planning will call you for your Social Security number and to verify your information.

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 was hoping as time passed, I would find the right words to give you an appropriate thank you, but the only thing time has done is reinforce that it is okay that I cannot find an adequate way to verbalize my gratitude. Thank you so much for everything you and your staff have done to aide us at this time.

Dear Mark,
Thank you for the lovely card and note remembering our brother’s death. It was so thoughtful of you.
It is hard to believe that a whole year has passed. I think of him so often and keep him close that way. Our thanks again too for the very professional and kind and caring way that Burton’s took care of everything for us after my brother’s death.
