Cherishing Life-Honoring Memories
The funeral home was established as a storefront location known as M.A. Burke Funeral Home at 134 S. Broadway in Lawrence. In 1932, funeral director Michael A. Burke moved the funeral home to Andover. The funeral home remained at that location until 1949 when they moved to our present location. Michael A. Burke died shortly afterwards at the age of 60. Michael and his wife Sarah had four children, three of which became licensed funeral directors. Garrett J. Burke, the oldest son, purchased the funeral home from his mother and operated the family business. The Burke Funeral Home was taken over by Garrett's son, Garry A. Burke in 1980 upon his death at age 62. In January of 2004, Garry A. Burke passed the Burke Funeral Home on to Joel J. and Lisa A. Magliozzi, and is now known as Burke-Magliozzi Funeral Home.
Garry A. Burke is still an active funeral director and a dedicated presence in the community. With three licensed funeral directors and embalmers on staff representing many years of service, we are able to provide tasteful, compassionate, and customized funeral services for each family we serve.
The Magliozzi family takes great pride in continuing the tradition of caring and compassionate service that began with the Burke family. Our firm has served all faiths since its establishment over 85 years ago.
Preparing funeral arrangements before the need arises is called pre-planning or pre-arranging. Many people find that pre-planning gives them peace of mind knowing that their wishes will be respected and the burden lessened on their family at the time of their death. Others find that they need to protect their assets from the state and assure that their funeral expenses will be taken care of. Pre-planning your funeral consists of meeting with the funeral home of choice to allow them to gather biographical information for a death certificate as well as any information you would like included in obituary notices. At this time you can also choose the type of service desired, the type of casket, concrete outer burial container or cremation urn.
Once your pre-arrangements are made, you may prepay your funeral to secure the price at today's cost. The interest that accumulates on your funds is then used to offset inflation. At our funeral home, we work with a number of reputable pre-funding vehicles such as insurance and trusts. We guarantee that your funeral funds will be secure and protected.
