  • I have entrusted Greg and Marla Henderson at Henderson Funeral home and crematory. I have used both facilities at the locations at Walnut St. and now the new one at Velde Drive. I always thought the Walnut St. location was warm and comforting until I more recently used the new facility on Velde Dr. I then realized that it did not matter where they are at, It is Greg, Marla, and George that make up the warmth and consideration to those of us who morn. The new place has the same as the old. Thanks Greg and Marla, and George for making my mom's last the best.

  • The staff at Henderson Funeral Home were entrusted with arrangements and service for my Mother in June 2015. They handled all details with the greatest of dignity and respect. This facility provides not only compassion and care to ensure every detail is carried out to the highest level of service, it also is a full service facility with a community room available for family gatherings after the funeral. The staff guides you through the process and is also available for support and questions afterward. I have also entrusted my pre-arrangement package to this facility.

  • Very courteous staff and professional. They were very accommodating and flexible. Service was exactly as I had envisioned, but better because of their advise, experience and knowledge. Beautiful new facility to accommodate any size service. All of our needs & requests were met with " yes, we can do that." We hadn't wanted an open casket, but the funeral director did such an magnificent job of preparing the body, Dad looked great! Everyone involved worked as a team to ensure the best possible care for the family and the deceased.

  • The Henderson family makes the most difficult times in life so much easier to handle. They are thoughtful, caring, and kind while being professional in the best sense of the word. Every detail was considered in the services and burials of my family and extended family. In fact, though my husband and I do not live in Pekin, we are planning on having Henderson Funeral Home bring us home to our final resting place when the time comes. That will be a gift to our children as we know the Hendersons will take care of everything!

  • Henderson Funeral Home handled our family members arrangements phenomenally. The staff was very informative and caring. The facility is clean and spacious for large families. Our family had always used another local funeral home in Pekin but now will be using Henderson Funeral home for any future means.

  • We just had my mother's funeral at Henderson and the owners and staff went above and beyond. They made sure everything for the service was covered and we were taken care of. There are so many details to take care of even when the loved one has already pre-arranged many things. They helped us make good decisions and kept us informed of what they would take care of for us at no extra charge. Greg, Marla, and David are caring people. We would highly recommend using their services.
