Our History

To All at Anderson Funeral Home I truly believe that without the help and comfort y’all have shown me, well…I would not have come out of this the way I did. You helped make this process easier on me, and that is something that goes way beyond the words, Thank You. You gave hugs that were heart felt, and let me cry when I needed to , and put a shoulder out for those tears., helped me laugh when I was just trying to be strong, when you knew I was falling apart. Keep letting your hearts be God’s heart! With many thanks and sincerity,

Dawn Meyers

Anderson Funeral & Cremation Services was founded more than 125 years ago, and we enjoy a rich heritage in Belvidere.

Mr. Marskie founded this funeral service business in 1890. He would be proud to know that his legacy is still going strong more than a century later. The funeral home was originally located on State Street in downtown Belvidere and moved a few blocks away to 218 W. Hurlbut Avenue in 1937.

There have been many changes to the funeral home over the years and we will continue to reinvest into our facilities and grounds and throughout northern Illinois. Anderson Funeral & Cremation Services is dedicated to serving the neighbors on our city block, all of the city of Belvidere, and the northern Illinois region. We believe that ours is a wonderful community and our goal is to pour back into our community by serving its families with the compassion and excellence they deserve.
