Dear Peggy

I would like to thank you and all of the staff that supported me with kindness during a difficult time. I felt comfortable and relieved that you were there to walk me through each step of the way. I don’t think it would have been possible for me to take on all of the responsibility involved with the recent funeral for my husband. I am forever grateful .

I highly recommend this funeral home. When my husband passed away I have to say from the first call I made to the Crystal Lake location until the last contact I had with them it was a very comforting experience from beginning to end. I can’t just mention one staff member as being friendly and fantastic at their jobs because everyone there made me feel at ease and helped me with everything and made this time of my life bearable. I felt so comfortable when it was all over because they made me feel like I had made the right decision for my husband and I cannot thank them enough for being there for me when I needed it.

Jim and I would like to thank the Davenport Funeral Home for all their love and compassion this last weekend as we said goodbye to our son, James Shaver.
From the minute we walked through the door as spoke to Kelly, at a time we had just lost our 39 yr old son, we knew they cared about him, his wife Julie and all the people who loved him.
The day of the visitation Trevor and the staff were attentive to our every need. From helping us setup to checking temperatures at the door, they didn’t stop taking care of us all day. That says a lot about them!
The day of James’s Memorial Service, once again, Trevor was there. From setup to service, they took care of it. Pastor Jana was amazing as she delivered the service she and Julie prepared with such love.
There are not enough stars to rate Davenport, but know that if a tragedy like this happens in your family, trust Davenport Funeral Home to help you!

Kate Dopita our funeral director was such a pleasure to work with. You made my dad (Bernie Schilling) look amazing, but more importantly provided a very warm, peaceful setting for my mother and family. It was a pleasure having my dad cared by you! Thank you.
Kelly Hartley your compassion and care on Monday taking my dad from Alden was comforting for all, thank you!

Thank you for your compassion and care for Bernie Schilling

We were researching pre-need funeral
options and expenses and contacted
several funeral homes, and your Family
Funeral Home proved to be very
straightforward and open about your
prices and funeral laws, rules, and
options as well as pre-need and
insurance laws and practices. Your
Kristen Garrett answered our endless email
questions and gave us much
valuable advice without trying to sell us
anything. She seems to be a good and
honest person working for a good and
honest place.
Thank you.

Dear Jennifer, I would like to thank you and your staff for making a difficult time become a beautiful end of life celebration for our Mother. From the moment we met you made everything come together. Your kindness, efficiency, suggestions and quick response to phone calls to answer questions or order last minute flowers was greatly appreciated by all of us. This is the 3rd family funeral for us in the past 7 months and Davenport was by far the best experience. Thank you, Linda

Kelly Ann was wonderful and provided me with excellent guidance, the warmest of sympathies and the right amount of humor. And she has excellent listen skills and patience. She guided me through what I had perceived as a most daunting set of tasks with skill, knowledge and grace. She made an impossible situation remarkably easy and fulfilling. My wife Lorrie had passed away after a 13 month courageous battle with lung cancer.A very traumatic situation to say the least. From the first meeting through all of the planning, preparation and through the funeral service not a step was missed and not a request denied. I thank you Kelly from the bottom of my heart. You are the best.

When my Father passed away in January, you and your staff were very supportive and helpful towards my family. I want to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation on behalf of the Callahan family for everything you did. It was truly thoughtful to see my Father’s name with a reference to his livelihood through Brown Forman (and Bourbon Barrels) on the flat screen TV in the waiting area. Your facility was very well maintained and made all those who visited feel comfortable.

Dear Lisa and Jack Davenport, I wanted to take a moment and commend your funeral directors. Rick and Kelly took such wonderful care of our family today in Barrington. Our Fathers sister Lorayne Weirich was laid to rest today in the loving hands of your wonderful, caring, compassionate and professional staff. They were both so kind, offering water, coffee and heartfelt condolences to our entire family. We just wanted to say how grateful we are that we were cared for so lovingly by your funeral home directors. Warm Regards, Joe and Luke Davignon

It has been almost 2 years since the Crystal Lake facility handled my husbands services. No one could ask for a more professional group of people. They made the most horrible time of mine and my daughters life so much easier. We had a huge gathering and they accommodated each and every one of us in a professional, yet caring way. I love Jenny and have referred her and your locations to others that have lost their loved ones. Thank you Davenport family.

Jack and Lisa,
The family of Frances Bottom would like to thank each and everyone of you that helped with her funeral. Your organization is second to none!
Kim was so organized and efficient in the planning process. The day of at Barrington United Methodist Church Jennifer had everything set up and beautifully done.
You made a difficult time for us so seamless and dare I say enjoyable.
It is heartwarming to know that you were so caring and helpful in guiding us and through the process served our mom with utmost dignity.
God bless all of you!

Dear Kelly Ann,
My warmest gratitude to you and your staff at Davenport. My sister, Debbie and my stepmother, Alaine, have told me how helpful and supportive you were to them at our most difficult time. I'm so glad I got to meet you. You helped us create a beautiful celebration of my father's life and memory. He would have been very pleased. You took care of every detail and did it all with grace and respect. Thank you all so very much!

My husband and I would like to thank all the staff at Davenports for the wonderful care and service they gave us during the stressful time of burial of our daughter. Peggy and Rick seemed to anticipate our every need and were there before we knew we needed them.

October 6, 2017


On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for your services. I believe no one really understands all the necessary items, details and decisions there are to make, when a loved one passes.
We appreciated your guidance throughout this very difficult time.

We know getting the Knights of Columbus and the U.S. Navy took some persistence. It was greatly appreciated. Their attendance was a wonderful way to honor our dad.

You and the Davenport team were a tremendous help.
Thank you for your prayers and support.

Kelly and the team at Crystal Lake did a wonderful job with the arrangements for my Mom. Their caring, compassionate and sensitive way to handle our concerns, questions and needs was superior! Kelly was always one step ahead. I, on behalf of our family, again thank for all that you did with the arrangements for Mom.

Davenport Family Funeral home was top notch from my 1st call to them, all the way to the very end.

I was a basket case. I will never forget Katie who answer the phone and was so calm and helpful to me. Peggy who came to pick up mom and patiently waited over an hour for my sister to drive in to be able to see mom before they took her away. During that time Peggy helped me to understand what the next steps would be and answered all of my questions. We met with Peggy the next day in the office, she made everyone comfortable, helpful and explained everything to us. After that meeting, she was very accessible to us, to answer our phone calls and all our questions. Peggy handled everything for us and did a great job.

During the wake so many people commented on how beautiful mom looked and how nice and intimate the funeral home felt. Thank you, Peggy, for being there to make sure mom was laid out perfectly. Thank you, Bridgett, Nancy, Bob and Kelly, for being there during the wake.

Kelly thank you for bringing mom to her resting place in Wisconsin next to dad, on one of the snowiest, coldest days of the year. For waiting for everyone to show up and for the beautiful service at the gravesite.

When my dad passed away 10 years ago, mom was very impressed with the funeral home that helps us in Wisconsin and how they handled everything. I know she would have said the same about all of you at the Davenport Family Funeral Home. Thank you to all for making such a sad time, feel so beautiful and comforting for us.
