• Hawthorn Funeral Home in 2015

Helping Families Connect, Honor & Remember

  • We remain honored to be of service to families in your time of need. We understand the importance of your trust placed with us concerning those you love and cherish, and we commit ourselves to the best care we can offer physically and emotionally. Each and every day we treat others as we would be treated. Funeral service is a grand tradition. Our own traditions were not just taught to us, they were created by the Hawthorn Family as the first and foremost funeral home in Carthage and Panola County, Texas. We practice those traditions every day and remember who we are and where we came from, and we create new traditions in the new era of funeral service.

As leaders in our profession, we promise to serve your family with expertise, dedication, and care.

Testimonials

  • To my friends Carlton and Karen Shamburger. Better late than never to express my love and appreciation for the wonderful way you treated my daughter and myself when we came in to make decisions for Ted's funeral. Tears flowed when I saw him - he looked exactly like he used to before he started "going down." And thank you for giving me a Gideon Bible honoring him. I appreciate you for the day of the funeral as it went so smoothly.

  • Karen and Carlton, Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. It meant so much, and was an encouragement, for the basket to come the first thing the next morning. We're still munching, and are thankful for your friendship each time we do.
