The Greatest Benefit of Pr-Planning Is To Start The Dialogue

Those are the words of a very experienced Funeral Director, Chris Mayer of Glueckert Funeral Home. By starting the dialogue, people and families have all of the options that are available to them. From there, families can decide what options they desire, and how they would like their arrangements to be carried out.
In the Financial Planning space, Pre-Planning is becoming an important component of the process for people from a financial perspective, but even more important, this is removing a burden from loved ones who have absolutely certain information on file as to what their loved one desired. The important issues and choices were made by the person who mattered most.
At Glueckert Funeral Home, you are always welcome to a complimentary, and no obligation consultation with Chris Mayer, or any of our Professional Funeral Directors about Pre-Planning or At-Need Arrangements. We’re always here.

Feel free to contact us at 847.253.0168 or www.glueckertfuneral.com. Our promise is to be there for you.

Our 2019 Honor Banner Entry in Arlington Heights Centennial Memorial Day Parade

Arlington Cares!

It was never so evident that Arlington does care, with the amazing parade and tribute to fallen veterans and those who wear our country’s uniform in the name of Protecting our Freedom everyday. All over the world. That’s a sacrifice we recognize every day, but honor particularly on Memorial Day.
The Centennial Parade and Service was smiled upon with absolutely gorgeous weather for the public events. While the skies opened up later in the day, the weather cooperated during the official events for thousands upon thousands of spectators who enthusiastically cheered, (roared even!) along the parade route.
With nearly 200 volunteers in our Honor Banner Entry, we were able to honor every veteran by representing them with a banner on a family member or volunteer. From the littlest children, to hearty seniors who marched with us, the sea of Red, White & Blue never looked so glorious as we passed through downtown on our way to Memorial Park. The energy from the crowd of neighbors and visitors was more than 10 deep along the route, as far as the eye can see.
Arlington Heights is our home. We’re always proud to be members of this community. But, on days like these, it’s even more special. When the public festivities were completed, an hour or so later the skies opened up and the rain came. Some old soldiers believe that “rain symbolizes the tears for those who’ve gone before us and offered up the ultimate sacrifice”. After 100 years of sacrifice from this community and every community in our blessed country, it’s easy to believe that every veteran was recognized with those tears.
Thank you to every neighbor, friend, group and the organizers for this wonderful event. We did the “Community of Good Neighbors” proud!

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”.

Holiday Luminary Remembrance Service

We have the video of our Holiday Luminary Remembrance Service.

We actually have two. One is a two minute recap with some highlights. The other is the full service for all of the families to view. We’re so grateful for the beautiful singing of Tam Conseur and the inspirational words of Reverend James Preston. It was an uplifting night for all of us at Glueckert Funeral Home to celebrate so many loved ones in this most holy season.

The Glueckert Family and Staff ensure every Veteran receives their Earned Benefits

The Glueckert Family has a strong commitment to Veterans in their community. In addition to sponsoring an entry in the Memorial Day parade with honor banners representing the loved ones and active members of our military, each September, Glueckert Funeral Home also sponsors a bus coach trip and tour or Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. The tradition of service in Arlington Heights and the surrounding communities is something is the Glueckert Family is dedicated to preserving. That includes ensuring that each and every Veteran is aware of, and receives the earned benefits of their service.


Kathy Borresen’s father was a Veteran. Kathy explains how the Glueckert Family assisted her in locating her fathers’ DD-214, and arranged the Military honors for his funeral services at Glueckert.  When she couldn’t locate  her father’s Discharge Document (DD-214) among his papers, she stated “Sam went to town finding them, by calling Washington DC and the Veteran’s Administration to locate the documents so my father could have all of the military benefits as part of his service. They always seem to extend beyond what you might expect”. Veterans are a special group among us. Honoring their service all the way to their final resting place is a privilege and a duty. We’re honored by the families who choose us to take care of their loved ones who served us.

Veterans are entitled to burial services at no cost at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery  in Elwood, Illinois. (or any National Cemetery where space is available) The benefit also extends to a Veteran’s spouse.

If you are interested in learning more about veteran earned benefits or would like to be included in Veterans programs offered by Glueckert Funeral Home, please contact Jackie Glueckert at 847-253-0168.

At Glueckert Funeral Home, we were brought up to be involved in our community.

From the time the Glueckert children were very young, John and Rosanna Glueckert ensured the entire family was involved in the community. They stressed that sense of community in John, Marcie and Jackie from the beginning. So, it’s not surprising that the entire family and staff at Glueckert Funeral Home are very involved in all kinds of activities, programs, groups and activities around town. Arlington Height’s motto is ‘City of Good Neighbors’, and the businesses and the people there live up to that promise! 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. 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.

And, if you need our family, we’ll be there for you. Whether it’s At-Need, or Pre-Planning, feel free to contact us at 847.253.0168 or www.glueckertfuneral.com

From the moment we answer the phone, our service starts.

 

“Our goal is to serve the family in the manner they wish. In fact, that’s our mission”, states John W. Glueckert, Jr. speaking on behalf of his entire family and professional staff.

The most important reason people choose would Glueckert Funeral Home is because they feel comfortable here. ‘Funeral Home’ is two words, and the “Home” portion is the most important. The mission is to ensure that while a family is here that they treat it as if they were home and they feel at home.  Making people feel comfortable is our mission here.

When people require our service, it’s during the most stressful days of their lives. We do everything we can to make things a little easier for the families we serve. We’ll take care of the details so you can focus on greeting family and friends and celebrating the life of your loved one. We want our home to be your home.
