The City of Chicago and Cook County both announced new eased Phase 4 mitigations for the Restore Illinois Plan starting Friday, April 30th. This allows us to accommodate up to 250 people in our chapels for services, wakes, visitations, or memorials. 


We are here to help walk with you and your family after losing a loved one. Our caring and compassionate staff will help you create a meaningful and personalized tribute. We can still provide families with visitations, memorials and services being mindful of COVID-19 protocols.


We also provide complimentary live-streaming and recording of services.



Please call us with any questions.
