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.

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.

Testimonials

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.

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.

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.
