Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home

    How sad. Jean was such a sweet person. I took wood burning and decoupage classes from her. Since that time she always would stop and we’d talk when we saw each other. Will be keeping her family in my thoughts and prayers.

    I was stunned to see this announcement! I will forever remember Jean making sure I got the right care at the clinic. She remembered things about me and my childhood that only my family would otherwise know. So very sad right now!

    I knew Jean when i was young. I volunteered at the clinic and she was always so so pleasant. Heaven definitely got another angel. Bless you Jean, on your journey

    My grandmother was a Rupert. I wonder if we may have been related? My condolences to her family.

    My heart is broken… Jean was such a wonderful lady to me & all! She pierced my ears when I was 17, and taught me how to router and burn wood to apply decoupage pictures! Prayers of comfort to Pete and family!
