Our Services

We are familiar with the customs and traditions of all faiths. Our licensed funeral directors arrange each service so it is unique to the families we serve. It is important to us to create meaning through personalization. Whether families choose traditional burial, cremation or an alternative service, we will work with them to create a fitting tribute.

Traditional Burial

Our staff works with all cemeteries in the area to facilitate burial services. While you are at our funeral home, we can assist you in the selection of a casket and burial vault. Our selection room has a wide variety of price and style options from which to choose.


Today, many families are choosing cremation as part of the commemoration of their loved one. Click here to learn about the many service choices to those who prefer cremation.

Alternative Services

In our efforts to create personal ceremonies, we have found that many people prefer visitations without the deceased or casket present. These memorial visitations are a large part of the services provided. Other alternative services we offer include:

  • Humanistic services
  • Services where family members and friends officiate
  • Services at locations of choice other than church or funeral home

Community Outreach/Aftercare

Our doors are open to all of Elmhurst

Our funeral home has tours of the facilities, seminars on many aspects of funeral service, and a grief library to ensure that the members of our community have access to any information they may need. We also have a monthly newsletter complete with information on grief issues and support groups.
