We Honor Veterans level 4 badge We Honor Veterans

At Davison-Fulton Woodland Chapel, we understand the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families. As a Level Four Founding Community Partner with We Honor Veterans, we are honored to serve our nation’s heroes and take this responsibility seriously. We have taken steps to ensure our staff is knowledgeable of all the benefits available to military veterans and their families.

In addition, we host community events annually in honor of our veterans and work closely with local veterans organizations. With respect, integrity and dignity, we will walk you through the steps of creating a veteran’s memorial service that truly honors the life and sacrifice of your loved one.

On-site crematory

Unique features at Parkview CemeteryDavison-Fulton Woodland Chapel has a private on-site crematory, which means your loved one never leaves our care. Cremation is important in certain religions and cultures, and more and more people are choosing cremation over more traditional burial options, but most people aren’t familiar with all of their choices when it comes to cremation. You may choose a direct cremation without a funeral or memorial service of any kind; a funeral with the body present, followed by cremation; or a cremation followed by a cemetery service or a celebration of life. If you wish, cremated remains can be interred at Parkview Cemetery.

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 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.

"Even though our funeral for our sister was prearranged. There were still details, ideas & suggestions that the funeral director brought to our attention. Those issues had to be addressed and his help in those matters was greatly appreciated."
