History

A group of Peoria businessmen led by C.T. Hutchison founded Parkview Cemetery in 1921. In 1938, Delbert and Helen Davison established Davison Funeral Home at 813 S. Western Ave., on the south side of Peoria.

Following the unexpected death of Delbert in 1968, George Fulton purchased the business. The funeral home served the community in the same location until it tragically burned down. In 1973, a new chapel was built at 1203 W. Garfield Ave., in Bartonville. At that time, the business name was changed to Davison-Fulton Funeral Chapels.

In 1980, to serve families on the north side of Peoria, Davison-Fulton Woodland Chapel opened adjacent to Parkview Cemetery at 2021 N. University St. In 1989, Davison-Fulton Woodland Chapel joined the Dignity Memorial® network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers.

"Initial visit to plan service felt too long and drawn out, too much down time in waiting room, seems like it could have gotten arranged in an hour or less, not 3 hours time. Would have preferred shorter time there with follow up phone calls if needed. Down time was painful"

"Ellen Reynolds went above and beyond in every way. She was kind and caring making the process as easy as possible. This was also true of each and every team member we came in contact with throughout the process. Thank you for being there for us during this difficult time. I would not consider using or recommending any other funeral home. You all are the best."
