Selecting Merchandise is difficult. Our mission is to make it as comfortable as possible.

During the arrangements for funeral planning or even Pre-Planning, the experience of selecting merchandise can be a very difficult one for families. Glueckert Funeral Home make it as comfortable as we possibly can. We have a very welcoming selection room where families can view full size displays of what they are choosing. We are there to serve our families by answering their questions and providing the information they need to make whatever selections they desire. Whether choosing caskets, vault enclosures, urns or any other merchandise, those decisions reside solely with the family. We even have a section devoted to Eco-Friendly options for families to view.

This portion of the arrangements is often a very difficult one. When the family of a loved one is ready, that’s when we proceed. But not until that time. Our family and our dedicated staff are committed to providing compassionate and professional service throughout the entire arrangement process, whether it is working with a family who have experienced a very painful recent loss, or pre-planning with an individual or a family. There are many choices that families need to make. It is our mission to make that process as comfortable as possible.

Glueckert Holiday Remembrance Service 2015 (Full version)

Over 400 family and friends of of our loved ones joined us for our 2015 Holiday Remembrance Service. We are so honored to serve the families of our community and beyond. The inspirational words of Pastor Micah Greiner can be a heart-warming reminder all year long. Please “save the date” of Saturday December 3, 2016 for our next Holiday Remembrance Service.

Glueckert Holiday Remembrance Recap 2015

Holiday Remembrance participants share their stories.

Often it takes some courage to return to the place where your loved one spent their final time with you. Annually, we have celebrated a Holiday Remembrance Service for our entire community to come together and share their experience and celebrate the lives of their loved ones together. We videotape the service to make it available to family, friends and loved ones who cannot be there for the experience in person. The combined strength of the community coming together and comforting and help the healing process continue is a truly awe inspiring experience. We’re honored to be able to honor all of our loved ones year after year and to provide a chance for the families who’ve entrusted us with the most treasured people in their lives to celebrate their continuing presence in their lives.

Holiday Remembrance Service Kare 9 Dogs

We had some extra special greeters at our Remembrance Service this year! 

 

In addition to the Glueckert Family Members and our Professional Staff, the receiving line for our Holiday Remembrance Service included a quartet of members from the Kare 9 Military Ministry; namely Brutus, Blitz, Brandy and Susie.

 

Our theme this year of Comfort, Hope & Gift were carried out by our guest hosts in their special way, which may have included a “friendly lick hello” in return for the favor of a loving pet from attendees.

 

Lutheran Church Ministries of Northbrook operates the Kare 9 Military Ministry for Veterans and the handlers are also Veterans. Their mission is to strive to serve active-duty military, Veterans and their families at various Veteran events and venues in the region.

The Kare 9 Dogs have been with us here at Glueckert Funeral Home for our sponsored events all year, including our entry in the Arlington Heights Memorial Day Parade, our annual coach trip to Abraham Lincoln Cemetery we sponsor for Veterans and their families as well as our Holiday Remembrance Service.

 

“At our Holiday Remembrance Service, it can be very difficult for families who’ve lost loved ones recently. Upon entering and experiencing these beautiful dogs full of affection, it just seems to offer immediate comfort to our guests. We were so happy to have them as part of the service” said Jackie Glueckert, coordinator of the event.

 

While Susie is a bit of a Diva, all 4 of our guests agreed to a group photo!

Pre-Arrangements – Having everything already chosen was wonderful.

 

Tamara Kapcheck knew her mom had pre-arranged her funeral arrangements. It made things so much easier, right down to choosing her favorite flowers. Tamara and her husband have decided to pre-plan for themselves at Glueckert Funeral Home to make it easier on their children. In her words, “Pre-arangement was much easier for us. Everything being done was wonderful”.

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 orglueckertfuneralhome.com
