Burke Mortuary, located in Maiden and Newton, is known for their locally-owned service to the community, but recently the mortuary has added an extra touch to help families during their grieving period.

At the beginning of 2013, Burke became an exclusive partner with Woven Remembrance. The company specializes in woven photo tapestries for memorials. The throws are one of a kind, soft, washable, non-shrinking, polyester and cotton. Third generation funeral directorr, Bradley Burke said the throws are fully customized to the loved one’s life story that includes hobbies and other interests in their life.
