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.

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. 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

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
