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

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. Or for any information on Pre-Need, At-Need Services or questions you may have, contact us at 847-253-0168 or visit http://www.glueckertfuneralhome.com

“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 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.

BEAUTIFUL DAY, BEAUTIFUL PARADE, BEAUTIFUL CEREMONY. THANK YOU TO ALL.

 

honor-flag-procession-2017-md-parade-e1496163712979.jpg

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect day and setting for our participation in the Arlington Heights Memorial Parade. Approximately 200 people from the community, scout troops, high school, and community organizations joined us in honoring our heroes who served our nation. Seeing all the Salutes, and hands on hearts along the route, and robust applause with every advance was a remarkably emotional experience; enough to give us all goosebumps as we made our way to Memorial Park for the solemn and patriotic service.

At a brief pause on Dunton Street, there was an amazing moment. While standing in place, waiting to advance, a warm breeze gusted toward us allowing the hundreds of US Flags in our possession to completely unfurl and wave in full glory to the delight of the crowd several rows deep on each side of the street. As if time stood still, while God truly shed his Grace, and His Breath on Thee; All of Thee! Moments like these are what make our community so special and the members of our community so grateful for having this wonderful event every Memorial Day!

Flags 2017 MD Parade

With 200 volunteers, there were a lot of heartwarming stories told and shared at the parade. One story of Seth Beasley, who’s lifelong dream was to be in the US Navy. He accomplished that dream in January of 2015. He graduated boot camp in March of 2015. Seth was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident in July of the same year. Seth’s memory and devotion to the US Navy are being kept alive with family, friends and fellow military families taking a picture, with his picture and posting on Facebook at Live On Sailor, or his mom’s page Jamee Hazzard Booth. This handsome young sailor who left us too soon was well remembered and photographed this past Memorial Day.

Our family is committed to sponsoring this entry each year and providing banners for every hero who has served our nation. We’re grateful to every community organization, civic organization, Scouts, our Comfort Dogs, and every member of the community who spend the time with us to help demonstrate our thanks to those who have fought for our freedom and made so many sacrifices, including the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives.

Thank you. Two hundred times and then some. Thank you!

The Glueckert Family
