Our Heritage


Sterling Emmett Betzer founded the Betzer Funeral Home in Harvard, Illinois in 1909 with horse drawn hearses and ambulances.

Then, in the early 1930’s, Edward M. Schutt (S.E. Betzer’s son-in-law) and his partner, Z.F. “Dick” Cerny bought the business location. S. E. Betzer then moved to Delavan to start another location at 111 South 2nd Street, today it is known as the Delavan American Legion Post 24, across the street in competition with Lackey, Liddle and O’Brien Funeral Home.

His son, Robert Sterling Betzer joined the family firm in 1936.

In about 1940 Loreazo Lack and Robert Liddle retired; Robert S. Betzer, S.E. Betzer’s son, who was operating the Betzer Funeral Home at that time joined partnership with Thomas Henry O’Brien at the current location of 118 South 2nd Street and closed the location across the street.

O’Brien and Betzer owned the only funeral home in Delavan until 1952. Thomas O’Brien retired in 1960 and Robert S. Betzer took sole ownership.

His son, Robert Gray Betzer entered the Betzer Funeral home in 1969 and joined hid father is the current owner and operator of Betzer Funeral Home. 

Robert S. Betzer Retired in 1987.
