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.
“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.
