Have you ever wondered what the scrolled bars mean on the side of our hearse? They’ve actually got a name and they’re called “landau bars”. They are purely for decoration today but they offer a nod to olden days when certain carriages were made with the ability to put their “top” down. Almost like an early form of convertible. Early horse drawn hearses were fully functional and had the option to use them as an open caisson or covered in inclement weather.

We want to honor our friends who have battled breast cancer! We see you, we hear you and support you!

Funeral Director in Charge & Embalmer

Lionell Butts has served Butler County for over 43 years at both Carlson & Kirby-Morris Chapels. Lionell graduated from the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science and Leon High School. He is active on the board of the El Dorado Community Concert series, Leon Senior Center, Leon Christian Church, and El Dorado Kiwanis Club.

This was such a great event! We were honored to spend an evening with our First Responders of Butler County! Thank you for all you do!

Carlson Colonial Funeral Home and Kirby-Morris Funeral Home held their Third Annual First Responder Appreciation Dinner Saturday night at the El Dorado Civic Center. Keynote speaker was Kansas Fire Marshal Doug Jorgensen, who presented an overview of his agency and encouraged first responders to take advantage of programs to protect their physical and mental health. One such initiative Jorgensen said has been underutilized is a grant program that covers out-of-pocket costs for annual firefighter physicals. Jorgensen noted his department is supported by fees on insurance policies rather than tax dollars. He said his department recently received a live fire demonstration trailer that shows a room protected by a residential sprinkler system on one side and an unprotected room on the other. The trailer is available to go anywhere in Kansas. For more information on the Fire Marshal's Office, visit: https://www.firemarshal.ks.gov/
And thank you, Jean Plummer, for planning this great event again this year!

It is going to be another hot weekend! Please stay safe, hydrated and healthy!

Here at Kirby-Morris, we have the capability to host gatherings for any occasion. We have a staff caterer that can accommodate any of your culinary needs! Please visit with a member of our staff and let us help you plan your next event!

On Monday, July 6, we invited Parish members of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church to take part in a prayer service and blessing of our new Catholic Liturgical items for the funeral homes. We are so blessed to be able to provide these new items to enhance the liturgy for our Catholic Brothers and Sisters! God Bless!
