Our Mission

Your thoughtful concern for our family was appreciated so much at an extremely difficult time in our lives. I especially want to thank you for your help in our planning and after the service was over. You made this a celebration of my Dad’s life.

"Our mission is to tell your story and serve you and your family – and all families in Boone and Winnebago Counties – with exceptional care, concern, and sensitivity, and with the highest standards of excellence."

At Anderson Funeral & Cremation Services, we believe our role is to do all we can to help you create a foundation for you to move forward with hope. There is no such thing as an "ordinary life" and your funeral service should not be "ordinary" either. Let us help you design and implement a meaningful, creative and unique service that will honor your loved one’s life and tell their story.

It has been said that "We grieve deeply because we love deeply." Love does not stop with death, but what do you do with grief? Our society tends to try and avoid the pain of death and will spend billions of dollars to try to stay young with the hope that death can be cheated. But so far, the mortality rate is 100%! Research shows that having a meaningful ceremony to acknowledge the death of your loved one will positively help you move forward in your new reality. Conversely, there is compelling research that shows if you choose to not have a service to acknowledge that a death has indeed occurred, you will have a very difficult time moving forward.

If you have just lost a loved one, or you would like to plan for your funeral, please contact us. We are honored to walk you through every step with exceptional care, concern, sensitivity, and with the highest standards of excellence.
