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 Quinn Scott’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.

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.

Dear Kate –
I just wanted to thank you for everything you did to make our family comfortable from our first meeting all the way through the funeral service.
My mother would have been very happy!
While any death is difficult, an unexpected death is especially hard because there are no good-byes.
It was also a comfort to me that I knew you Kate! You are truly remarkable!

Dear Burton family –
We can’t thank everyone enough for making a very difficult time bearable. Everything was absolutely perfect! My dad would be proud and being part of the Ericson/Burton family made me so proud. Everyone kept saying thank God you work for the Burton’s! They really made us feel at ease and truly cared for dad and our whole family. Love and hugs.
