About

Remmert Funeral Home has provided burial and cremation services for East Peoria, Illinois, and the greater Peoria area since 1965. Throughout the years, our commitment to the community has remained unchanged while our services have evolved along with the needs of families who live here.

A caring funeral home

Front exterior building at Remmert Funeral HomeThe compassionate team at Remmert Funeral Home treats each family as if they were own. With spacious rooms, intimate areas and comfortable seating, we offer families a lovely place to connect with friends, honor their loved ones and begin the healing process. We guide families through planning funerals and cremations with great care and attention to detail.

Personalized funerals

At Remmert Funeral Home, we are experts at creating unique and memorable tributes that celebrate a person’s passions and personality.

If your loved one was a world-class grill master, we can put together a celebratory cookout. Maybe her recipes for banana pudding and chocolate chess pie are worthy of a dessert buffet? We can display a collection of paintings or quilts, dress up in sports jerseys or release 100 red balloons.

From small details like photos and funeral favors to custom decor and a live band—whatever the case may be—we can craft a memorial that warms hearts, lifts spirits and deeply reflects the life of your loved one.

We offer many planning ideas and resources as well as catering and reception services.

East Peoria cremation services

Signature Dedication at Remmert Funeral HomeThere are many options for cremation in East Peoria—and they're not all equal. We specialize in cremation services that honor loved ones in personalized ways, and families love our all-inclusive pricing. With expertise in scattering ashes and a friendly team who pays attention to every detail, we provide service that is second to none.

More and more people are choosing cremation over traditional burial, but most aren’t familiar with the many options:

  • a cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind.
  • a funeral with your loved one present, followed by cremation.
  • a cremation followed by a scattering, cemetery memorialization or celebration of life—or all three.

And for those who wish for a more momentous memorial, Neptune Memorial Reef is an underwater cremation garden off the coast of Florida. A Celestis Memorial Spaceflight takes ashes into space for a little while or forever.
