The Gibbons Always Looks for Ways to Make it Easier, Safer and more Convenient 

Technology can be a big help, even in a very traditional service like ours. We’ve learned there are a number of ways it can serve our families celebrating a loved one, as well as their extended families and friends who come to help comfort them as guests paying their respects. We have added an electronic monitor screen at the entrance of our chapel to help people quickly identify where to go, as well as our Electronic Guest Book. Typing your name and address into the electronic pad, (or one of our staff will assist with this) makes it many times easier for the family to complete the process of acknowledgement notes for the kindness of your presence and your visit. We have also added QRC codes to our screens, mass cards and printed collateral, that can be scanned with your IPhone or Android, and you can register, leave a message for the family and get all the information about visitation time, funeral services, church location, cemetery, etc. Scanning the code means the entire process is “Touchless.” That has been especially appreciated over the past couple of years. 

If there’s a convenience we can identify that can be solved with technology, while retaining the personal reverence of honoring the life of your loved ones, we will quickly adapt. Every opportunity we can find to make this difficult process a little bit easier for families is an opportunity we’ll pursue

OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN PART OF YOUR COMMUNITIES FOR 3 GENERATIONS 

Thomas “Tucker” Gibbons remembers with great fondness his father Thomas, and ‘Grandpa Thomas’ Gibbons letting no detail be glossed over. Being part of so many parishes and faith communities in all of their locations meant they could be spread a little thin sometimes; but always worth the effort. Those families were the families that entrusted the Gibbons Family to help them in their greatest times of need and mourning. It may have been At-Need or Pre-Planned Arrangements or Services, it was the first priority to be available to the communities in our parishes, faith communities and towns around all of our locations. 

Tucker and Marya can be seen in Elmhurst, as Tucker would tell you “at the front door”. Because that’s where his father greeted people, believing that helping them with parking, directions to anyplace in the funeral home itself; chapels, coffee room, restrooms, etc. right through to advice on the easiest way to get home safely. So, in essence, families would likely be greeted even before they arrived at the front door, and often the conversation continued right up to the car door when they left. That’s something very peculiar to a Family-Owned and Operated Funeral Home, especially one that has served families and communities for 3 Generations. 

Whether you have an at-need circumstance or are considering pre-planning, the Gibbons Family is here to serve your family. If you have any questions about pre-planning or any aspect of funeral arrangements, please contact us with no obligation at 630-832-0018 or http://wwwgibbonsfuneralhome.com

WE ALWAYS KNEW HIS SERVICE WAS IMPORTANT TO HIM. AND HE LET US KNOW WHAT HE WANTED AT GIBBONS FUNERAL HOME

Marya Gibbons explains that “being a veteran becomes part and parcel of who a person is.” Kathy Gidcumb’s dad, Tom Revane, was one of those people.  Serving his country was not simply part of who he was; it was exactly who he was. And his service really set the tone for how he lived. Mr. Revane went on to marry, raise children, serve his parish and proudly serve with the Knights of Columbus doing positive works for the parish, church and the community. Service had become a very natural thing for him.  

Mr. Revane knew his services would be held at Gibbons Funeral Home in Elmhurst, and his service in the military would be an important part of the visitation, and remembering who he was and how he lived his life. Marya Gibbons explains that  “we ensure that every benefit a veteran earns through their service is presented to the family”.


Thomas A. Gibbons, Jr. explains that veterans are entitled to an American Flag, an honor guard from their branch of the service, and their burial expenses at a National Cemetery are free of charge for a veteran and spouse. That includes a headstone. Abraham Lincoln Cemetery in Elwood, IL is the nearest National Cemetery. Full military honors are part of every service at Lincoln Cemetery. Added Thomas A. Gibbons Jr., “That moment where you present the flag to a family and state ‘On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation’, the gravity of the service and sacrifice made by the men and women who served is impossible to misunderstand.” 

Mr. Revane’s daughter Kathy Gidcumb says it best, “It really was done just lovely”.

Take it from Marty, “The Family Connection Means Everything” 

It could be Immaculate Conception High School, or the football program or the parents’ clubs, or municipal events around town. You become part of a greater family than your immediate family when you live in Elmhurst. You grow and, in many cases, “grow up” with the people and the families around you. As Marty Manion would say, the people around town providing services, “They aren’t businesses, they’re family operations”. So, when his family needed help and lost their father fairly recently, it was automatic to them to call Marya and Tucker Gibbons. They were friends, fellow parishioners, team parents, buddies, their go-to people to help when loss occurred. All those reasons and more. Marty’s sister helps during wake duties at Gibbons to extend her natural caring way and compassion to families who are traveling a journey she has been on already. It’s a huge help to other families. 

When Marty uses phrases like, “highly respected”, ” Very Social”, “Good, decent social people”, it’s not lost on us what that means. It’s what we strive every day for in fact. When he goes on to say his father would have been very happy with how things were handled, it means even more. He was a prominent person in town with many friends, a huge service, and made it clear to his children during his lifetime what the arrangements he preferred would entail. He was the guest we were honoring, and his approval, as conveyed by Marty means a lot to us.
