We are continuing to monitor the situation with COVID-19 very closely. To ensure the safety of our staff, families, and friends, we will be following the CDC guidelines and restricting public gatherings to small groups.

Thank you for your patience during this time.


Welcome to the Van Hoe Funeral Home website! With the growing number of people moving away from home, our website is available for anyone around the world to have the ability to look at an obituary and comment in the guest book provided. We have found that this has been greatly appreciated by those unable to attend the services, and the notes left in the guest book are another way to help families grieve the loss of their loved one. Please look around as it is our hope you find it both helpful and insightful.

We are personally on call 24 hours a day, so please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. With the number of corporately owned funeral homes these days, we want you to know that we are FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED. Our family has served the Quad-Cities area for 4 generations and our goal is to keep providing the same level of service that has made Van Hoe a household name.

We now own Black Hawk Crematory and Black Hawk Pet Crematory in Rock Island and offer a full array of cremation options. Visit the Crematory page at: www.blackhawkpet.com or on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/BlackHawkPet
