Cremation Service Davenport, Bettendorf, and LeClaire, IA
Trimble Funeral Home & Crematory is a family-owned business that has served the Moline, Illinois, and Scott County, Iowa regions for 141 continuous years. The founder, Edwin B. Knox, began the business in March of 1874. In 1908, Edwin’s son, Luther, joined his father in the business and they relocated the business to Fifth Avenue in Moline. In 1923, they purchased the former Barber residence and converted it into a funeral home. It was one of the earliest examples of the ‘funeral home’ concept in their area.
After the death of Edwin in 1928, Luther eventually sold the funeral home to Dorothy and Riley Trimble in 1945. Their son, Eric R. Trimble, current president and Funeral Director, joined his parents in the business upon graduation from Cornell College and the University Of Minnesota Department of Mortuary Science.
Today, they offer many services to their local community. In 2015, they received the Innovation Award from the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce, for their ‘display of creativity and innovation.’ As a business, they helped develop the reputation of the Iowa-Illinois Quad Cities’ area as a wonderful, family-oriented, creative place to live. They can provide you with family services you need when honoring life, as well as provide resources for grief support.
Direct cremation is only one of the many funeral-related services offered by Trimble Funeral Home & Crematory. This environmentally friendly option is becoming preferred over cremation or traditional funeral services for several reasons. Because there is no land disturbed for a burial, this is considered to be an eco-friendly option. With direct cremation, the remains are not embalmed prior to cremation, thus there is no viewing beforehand. As there is no expense for a casket or professional hair and makeup preparation, the cremation costs can be greatly reduced. After direct cremation, you can still have a memorial service, with the ashes present, to honor your loved one.
