Our History

At Burke Mortuary, we have a long and proud history of personal service provided by local families with deep roots in our community and with a deep commitment to professional and personal standards. Founded by Charles Ray Burke and a group of local men in 1980, his vision, first and foremost, was to provide the community with a ministry-minded funeral home that reflects great care, concern, respect, honor, and dignity of your loved one in a beautiful and comfortable facility.

Today, Burke Mortuary is STILL locally-owned and operated, with facilities in Maiden and Newton, and we still remain true to our vision. We answer to YOU, not an out-of-state corporate office, which means we are not bound by corporate mandates! At Burke Mortuary, we say what we mean and mean what we say. With Burke Mortuary, you can rest assured that your family will receive the most conservative funeral costs in the community without compromising the professional and personal care you deserve, that’s our promise to you… now that’s a Burke Difference! We take great pride in the service we provide, and are honored to serve the families of Catawba and surrounding counties.
