There 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.

To the Staff of Burton Funeral Homes and Crematory,
I am so thankful for your kindness and care for my companion and friend. He was not just an ordinary pet he was an extraordinary, local, gentle sweet service dog who helped me with balance and support for almost six years. Thank you for helping us have him close by.

Just a short written note to say thank you gain for all you did to make my sister’s service a comforting reality. She would have been pleased with the entire service. You were empathetic, warm, and professionally throughout and it was very much appreciated.

Thank you for the beautiful snowflake ornament with my husband’s name on it that you sent to me. It is another example of how Burton’s is top notch in caring for the families of deceased individuals.
Bill at your West Lake Branch was extraordinary in meeting the needs and wants of my family. Everything was done to perfection and though it was the most devastating time in my life, I was very happy with the way everything was done.
My husband chose Burton Westlake when we were there for calling hours for a friend. As far as I am concerned, Jim made an excellent choice that day. Thanks for everything!

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.
