John and Rosanna Glueckert understood early on what it meant to love and promote their community of Arlington Heights. The City’s motto of “City of Good Neighbors” was one businesses and residents alike were aware of and challenged to live up to. So, when John Jr., Marcie and Jackie were growing up, they got “early and often” lessons about community service from their parents. The Glueckert parents didn’t just ‘send’ them out to help, they ‘brought’ them out to help with every civic organization, service organization, churches, schools, you name it, the family was involved. Maybe the best part of the Legacy is how many friends they’ve made over the years and how much they’ve truly enjoyed all these events.
Glueckert Funeral Home sponsors events all year round, including the Memorial Day Flag Unit in the parade, Relay for Life, Bus Tour of Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery for Veterans, a Holiday Remembrance Service and many other charitable events and drives throughout the community. This past year, the Glueckert’s were proud to be involved in Opioid Awareness Week, and the campaign to KeepAlive2155, the number of persons projected to die from an accidental overdose in the current year. They held classes in administering life-saving Naloxone, in addition to helping provide and distribute the kits. That’s part of the responsibility of being a good neighbor too; healing. The family and staff are members in the service organizations in town; Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, Knights of Columbus, local PTAs and other organizations. They treasure all the relationships and friendships that have grown from being involved.
