About

Whether your choice is a traditional funeral with burial, cremation with a memorial service or a simple cremation, the compassionate team at Hixson Westlake will guide you through the planning process and handle every detail.

As compassionate members of the community, we know many who walk through our doors—but even if we don't know you, we treat you like you're part of our family. It's our honor to offer comfort and advise everyone we meet.

Personalized funerals and celebrations of life

Chapel at Hixson WestlakeLocated on Westwood Road in Westlake, our red brick funeral home is a lovely place to plan and host a funeral, memorial or reception. We'll work with you and your family to create a personalized ceremony that deeply reflects your loved one's life.

There are endless ways to personalize a service. Start by sharing the details that you'll always remember—the way her nose crinkled when she smiled, the way he sang in the car when his favorite songs came on. We'll take the time to get to know your special person and design a tribute like no other.

When you first meet with a funeral director, we'll ask questions about your loved one: what they liked to do, what they cherished, how they thought about the world, how they liked to spend time. From there, we'll help you design a service that speaks to the unique life of your loved one, whether a traditional religious funeral, cremation memorial or any upbeat celebration of life.

Tell us if that special person was a sports fan, an outdoors enthusiast, a world traveler, a pet lover or a baker extraordinaire. We take the things that mattered to your loved one and weave them together to create a singular, heartfelt memorial. We're here to help remember the details through cherished traditions, favorite music, photos, flowers, a tribute video and more.

Whatever kind and size of service best suits you or your loved one, Hixson Westlake funeral planners will work with you to put together a personalized plan that considers your religion, culture, personal preferences and budget. We even offer catering.
