At one of the most difficult times in my life I found the people, services and resources at O’Donnell’s to be professional with out being aloof, caring without being patronizing and empathetic without being overwhelming.

Truly, I can not say enough about Diane, whom I dealt most closely with, and the staff of the O’Donnell’s. The respect and reverence they showed towards my Father and to my family goes beyond words.

From the moment I met Diane in Danvers at Peterson O'Donnell Funeral Home till the moment my sister Melissa was interred at the cemetery I felt the LOVING touch of a business that is Professional as well as caring for my well being.. I could not have asked for more. They instinctively know what to say ,when to do it, and deliver on their Promise.

Thank You from the bottom of my heart at this most difficult time.

We just used Peterson-O’Donnell the other week for my fathers funeral. The team did a great job from start to finish.

We had to have the body transported from FL to MA and had no idea where to begin with the whole process but they took care of it all for us.

Location is right in RT 62 in Danvers which was very convenient for us.

O'Donnell Funeral Service handled all the arrangements for my father's funeral in October during all the challenges posed by the pandemic. Their support and service was excellent during the most difficult of times for our family. Everyone we worked with was caring, compassionate and highly professional. They took care of every detail and responded rapidly and thoroughly to all our requests. They helped us tremendously and eased the burdens we were grappling with.

My family highly recommends their services.

10 STARS!!!!!I loved everything about O'Donnell's starting with my first call to every last detail honoring my father. Anthony O'Donnell has the right approach and positivity he upholds in his family business. He and his staff are remarkable at what they do, always with high integrity and professionalism, and always with lots of heart. Their service goes beyond a business, its with such heart and compassion to the deceased and families involved. I want to mention as well, they lend support and guidance all the way through and even weeks beyond. There are few businesses that really know what it means to service others and service the community. While its been a suffering loss for our family, we are beyond grateful for their dedication to helping us navigate life a little easier during this time.

We felt blessed to have you as our funeral director. From the first time I spoke with you, it was clear to me why my friend recommended you. Your knowledge and expertise helped make the process fell not so overwhelming. We appreciate the kindness of all of the staff during the calling hours and funeral for my fathers. My dad was very special and I am thankful that everything went smoothly.

John was helpful in picking up the clothing from the house, Connor was open to my constructive critiques and Georgia was very helpful on organizing the photo slide show and beautiful candle.

Anthony, you are so well suited for helping people in their time of loss. You are very organized and on top of every detail in a dignified manner. You truly honored my dad and have been there for me with my many texts, phone calls, questions and probing for advice.

I will never forget what you all have done for us and Joseph.

Heartfelt Thanks

Recently, I lost my very best friend, my mom.
She was only 66. O’Donnell staff were amazing from the time they came to my moms house right up until today. They reassured me they would get my mom out safely seeing she lived on a second floor Victorian condo. This was extremely important to me and I was nervous. The staff were so kind and they listened to all my feelings.
Although, this time has been the worst in my life, Diane was wonderful with helping my sisters and I set up all the arrangements. She helped me find the perfect picture of my mom for her obituary.
My niece wanted my mom to forever hold a charm she forgot it the night of the wake. We thought it was too late! We asked Diane and she reassured us she would get the charm in my moms hand after the funeral. She came up to my sister at the cemetery and held it up and said she would get it into my moms hands.
We didn’t have to ask for anything more than once. All of the staff truly were wonderful! I’ve never heard of a funeral home sending a card and text messages to ask how you are and see if you need anything. O’Donnell staff are genuinely caring people and I’m forever grateful for their excellent service!

John was amazing yesterday. He was a good sport when I asked if he would pose for a picture in front of the SUV holding the urn. He seemed a bit surprised initially (I’m guessing it’s not a frequent request!) but was happy to comply when I told him the family was getting a kick out of Dad returning home via a personal driver in a black stretch SUV! This was a guy that got around in old pick-up trucks and logging equipment, so to have such a fancy ride home is almost poetic!!!!

I have been so pleased with everyone on your team. You have a very compassionate and caring group of people and I’m grateful to all of you for making a difficult time the best it can be under the circumstances.

Lastly, thank you for being so understanding during our time of need. Your kindness and generosity has not been overlooked. You helped us immensely and our family is very grateful to you for ALL that you have done for us.

April 1, 2020 our precious son passed away. Mary and I were devastated. We will never recover from this tragedy. If it wasn't for our friends and the amazing support we got from Anthony and his team at O'Donnell funeral home, we would not have been able to manage the first few days. Anthony's compassion, support and follow-thru was amazing. Anthony helped us through this tragic experience. If you are in need of compassion, support, follow-thru and professionalism, we highly recommend Anthony and the O'Donnell Funeral Home.

I want to personally thank you for all you did to make my mother-in-laws funeral so beautiful. The lovely leaflet was a wonderful and beautiful unexpected surprise. Dick would be very happy that his mom had such a beautiful Mass and your dad would be so proud of how you are carrying on. Everything about the funeral was lovely but a lasting image for me will be of all the O'Donnell Guys lined up at the graveside service waving good bye as I was leaving.
