Glueckert – 2018 Holiday Luminary Remembrance Service

 

View our 2018 Holiday Luminary Remembrance Service

We thank all of those who attended our Annual Holiday Luminary Remembrance Service. As has become our custom, we videotaped the service for families to have a chance to see it again, and for family members near and far who could not be in attendance with us. The Glueckert Family remains grateful to all of the families who entrust us with the care of your loved ones over generations of your family and ours. We also remain committed to sharing the joy of their memories with you every year at this wonderful gathering of people who help each other celebrate the lives of the people they cherished and continue to cherish.

We have 2 videos for you. One is a couple of minutes in length, highlighting the environs and the response to the service. The other is 55 minutes and contains the full service featuring all of the readings, songs, reflections and memorials. We hope these bring some comfort to you this season and throughout the entire year. We thank all of you for coming or viewing this service on our website or social media sites. We also thank our amazing staff of professionals here for their incredible participation in this service and in the service of all of the families we are privileged to take care of. Those professionals are every bit our family too.

View full service.

 

Please share these with any families you know who may not have been able to join us.

Funeral Pre-Planning Can Make It Easier

“My mom pre-arranged everything. It made it so much easier for us. I told my husband we should do this for our kids too”.

When Tamara Kapcheck’s mom passed away, it was hard. Very hard on the kids. Dealing with the grief was difficult. In this case, arriving at Glueckert Funeral home, they realized that Tamara’s mom had pre-planned everything. Even the flower selection. Tamara and her husband knew for sure that everything her mom wanted was seen to and taken care of, and most important; perfect, just as she wanted it. “It just made things so much easier for us. I told my husband that this is something we should do for our kids. Because it’s hard on the kids”, she shares.

“Everything that was done was wonderful” according to Tamara. Her mom continued to be generous even after her life here. There are many options for Pre-planning that families can choose from simple selections and preferences to be kept on file, up to pre-funding arrangements. Many financial planners are adding this service to the portfolios of their clients. At Glueckert Funeral Home, our professionals are always available to discuss pre-planning at no cost and with no obligation; just to answer any and all of the questions you may have.

Contact us with any questions you may have regarding pre-planning or at-need services. We are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. 847-253-0168 or glueckertfuneralhome.com.

Funeral Care that Creates a Beautiful Memory Picture.

 

“The very first thing we noticed and felt, was just how beautiful my mom looked”

Barb Clement and her husband Dave knew the difficult health struggles Barb’s mom had during her last few months of life with frequent visits to hospital and rehab. Dave was very close to Barb’s mom Gloria and spent a lot of time with her during her long and trying illnesses. The Glueckert Family took care of Barb’s father many years before, and they knew they could entrust them again when Gloria passed away. What was most striking to Barb and Dave was how beautiful Gloria looked and how important that would be to her. The Glueckert Family understands how important this is to every family and that in their final remembrance they can keep the memory of “beautiful”. That is our mission with every family we serve.

Dave’s response was “I couldn’t imagine referring friends or family to anyone else. From the start to the service, all the way through to seeing Gloria looking so beautiful”, they took amazing care of us. Again.”

Choosing Cremation offers many options for Families.

A number of families today choose Cremation as a final disposition, most often honoring the wishes of their loved one. Families also have a choice of a variety of options that conclude with Cremation. It’s commonplace to have visitations with the loved one present in a casket, or an urn display with a prominent photograph of your loved one. Memorial Services are also gaining popularity as it removes some urgency on the logistics of assembling family and friends on short notice. Glueckert Funeral Home has a special urn carrying device called a “Bennett” which allows for the inclusion of pall-bearers in a ceremony including the urn being transferred at the funeral home, a place of worship and cemeteries.

“Families are extremely pleased and sometimes surprised to learn that many of the services of a traditional service remain available to them when Cremation is chosen as final disposition” states Sam Resch, a long-serving Funeral Director at Glueckert Funeral Home. Sam adds that the Glueckert Family’s mission is to treat every client family like their own family and see to it that we carry out your wishes to our fullest and very best capabilities”. That mission occurs no matter what services a family may choose in saying their final goodbyes to their loved ones. Sam and every member of the Glueckert Family take this mission very seriously. You only have one opportunity to honor a person you’ve loved and lost.

We Listen

 

 

“Our objective is to serve our families to their highest capacity”, states Matthew Bennett, Manager and Funeral Director at Glueckert Funeral Home. Citing a cohesive staff with many specialties and areas of expertise, truly learning what the desires and needs of every family are, Matthew believes this is what separates this Family Funeral Home from others. The “Family” part is vital too. The Glueckert Family is dedicated to their community and the families they have served for generations. This offers Matthew and the entire family and professional staff “the ability, the resources and the freedom to meet all the customized needs a family desires”.

From Matt’s point of view, he calls that a great reward in that he can “listen” to a family and specialize in providing them the services they want and care deeply about.

Whether planning a service at the time of need or pre-planning funeral services, the Glueckert Staff is here to help you, day or night. For more information or to answer any questions you may have feel free to contact us at 847.253.0168 or visit us at www.glueckertfuneralhome.com

WE WANT YOU TO THINK OF OUR HOME LIKE AN EXTENSION OF YOUR HOME

 

“Like your home, the doors of our home are open to your family and friends. That’s how we want our families to feel”. Those are the words of Marcie Glueckert-Heidcamp, who shares how her entire family feels about every family they are privileged to serve. Knowing that making a family comfortable is the most important mission during difficult times, the environment is carefully considered for comfort, for privacy and lending a beautiful space to encourage sharing. We have two separate lounges for families to get some refreshments and some relief during a service. Our furniture is chosen to be comfortable for your guests. We maintain a large parking lot with easy access to multiple entrances and full handicap access to our chapels, lounges, and restrooms. We’re frequently addressing every decor, finish and fixture in the building with our families in mind. Marcie shares that “we try to think of everything, but just in case, we’re always still listening”.
