We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
Burroughs Funeral Home was founded by Ivey R. Burroughs, Elizabeth N. Burroughs and Luther Fowler in August of 1941. The funeral home was located in downtown Walnut Cove in the Burroughs family residence. Ray Burroughs joined the family business in 1962 and bought Mr. Fowler’s interest. The funeral home was relocated to Highway 65 when construction of the building was completed in October 1972. Mr. Burroughs never saw the new building finished due to his death in March of 1972. His son and wife continued the business and were joined by Ray’s daughter Anita in February 1982 and subsequently his son, Bart in 1986. In 1994, Ray and Elizabeth made the decision to retire, and the funeral home was acquired by Forbis and Dick. Mr. Ray Burroughs died January 27, 2000 and Elizabeth Burroughs died on December 4, 2002.
As we approach our seventy-ninth year serving our community and our twenty-fifth year as a member of the Forbis and Dick family, our commitment to the citizens of Walnut Cove and Stokes County remains that as was expressed by our founders; “We will provide service second to none, delivered with compassion and professionalism that exceeds expectations.”
