  • The Henderson family have been wonderful to our family. My Dad, my Aunt, my Uncle and my lovely mom. They really have warm hearts and help so much at difficult times. I have done my prearrangement with them because I know that it will be done right and with LOVE.

  • 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.

  • I lost my husband this year and it has been very difficult without him. The folks at Henderson's have been just wonderful to me. The care they have given me & my family from the moment he passed has been unbelievable. Greg and Marla are the only funeral home I would recommend. Their new facility is perfect for what we needed. We were able to have the visitation and the luncheon there. The food and set up was raved at by our friends and family that attended. We had made plans and paid many years ago at another funeral home but moved to Henderson's after attending a friends service. The staff was so warm and welcoming, from the man who assisted us lining up for the cemetery, to the group that served the luncheon. Greg made it so easy to move to Henderson's. We didn't have to pay any addition money. When we saw my husband for the first time we couldn't believe it. He looked like he did 10 years ago. We commented that night at the visitation that Greg gave him back to us so that we could say goodbye. It meant so much. My family is so pleased with our decision to choose Greg & Marla Henderson.

  • Henderson Funeral Home handled my uncle's funeral recently and provided excellent service. My uncle passed away unexpectedly in AZ. My aunt and cousins wanted a grave side service, but realized they needed help with arrangements and had no where to host a luncheon afterwards. Marla helped write and placed the obituary, they arranged for a processional to honor my uncle and seating at the cemetery. Their staff was very courteous and accommodating. After the services we had a lovely luncheon in the "community room" in their new facility. They even arranged for the caterer! They turned a stressful time into a beautiful tribute to my uncle. I don't think my family would go anywhere else now!

  • Marla, Greg and their entire staff could not have handled the arrangements both before and during the funeral for our family member, in May, 2016, any better and with so much compassion and helpfulness for our family. They were no further away than a phone call to help us during this difficult time. They are true professionals!

  • My family has used Henderson Funeral for several funerals over the years. We greatly appreciated their kindness and professionalism. Their new facility offers a community room that allows you to have lunch/dinner after the funeral service. The Henderson's help you through the entire process which is a big relief during difficult times.

  • Was here for a visitation for a friend's family member. The place is kept extremely clean and is well maintained. The staff were extremely accommodating and tactful. They had a perfect balance of guiding visitors through and also being consoling when necessary. Obviously no one wants to think about this, but unfortunately there will be time to chose a business to work with for funeral services. From what I saw, this would be a great group to work with.

Celebrating Life

It's important to take the time to acknowledge the uniqueness of the deceased: the individuality of their personality, and the uniqueness of their life's path. Not just for them, but for you; it affirms the relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love - for the both of you.
