History & Staff

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.

Our History

In 2017, Suzanne M .Gray, purchased Anderson-Burris Funeral Home & Crematory from Richard and Monte Burris.   Anderson-Burris Funeral Home has been in operation since 1990, and in 2005, a crematory was added to the facility, making it the only funeral home in Enid with an on-site crematory.  In 2011, Anderson-Burris Funeral Home, purchased the building and lot next door to the funeral home.  It was converted into an event center and named Circle of Life and is used for family dinners, receptions, and memorial services.  It may also be rented for other events and parties.  We want to assist all our families in planning a unique and meaningful goodbye for their loved one.
