Hawthorn Funeral Home

Helping Families Connect, Honor & Remember

We offer unique opportunities for families to create healing moments after loss. Our experience, coupled with our perspective on the importance of ceremony, will help you discover ways to pay tribute. Whether traditional or unique, these tributes allow us to love, laugh, and live well again.

Hawthorn Funeral Home, Virtual Tour
        We are so honored to be thought of by families in their time of need.  Because we do understand the importance of trusting us with those you love and cherish, we commit ourselves to the best care we can offer physically and emotionally.  In 2019 we pledge the same commitment we have practiced over these many decades, to treat others as we would be treated.  Funeral service is a grand tradition.  Our 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 keep these traditions alive and move forward into the 21st century remembering who we are and where we came from and creating new traditions in this new era of funeral service.
