The Gibbons Family treated us like family.

“When my dad passed away, I called Marya Gibbons at 11 at night. In less than an hour, a gentleman arrived and treated my father and us with such respect, such class, such dignity. He treated my dad like he was taking care of his own father,” said Steve Engebretson. He gently added that everything that followed was just as respectful, just as dignified and just like family. They just made everything so much easier.”

Pre-planning can be an investment strategy that removes many burdens.

 

 

Robert Spahn is a Financial Advisor. As part of his advisory services he has seen the increase in peoplepre-planning and even pre-funding their funeral services as part of their financial planning strategy. It eases a burden on the family, in terms of a loved one making choices for themselves and having them available at the time of their passing. In cases where pre-funding has occurred, it has also acted as a measure against inflation. Nationally, the cost of funeral arrangements is reported to be doubling over the course of 12 years. At Gibbons, the funeral home arrangements cost is honored at the time the pre-funding occurs. That policy is held independently by a separate insurance entity. If a family has moved, the pre-planning funding policy can be transferred to another funeral home.

 

People have always been a bit uncomfortable discussing life insurance, wills or funeral planning. “As a financial planner, I highly recommend that people address these concerns when they’re younger” says Mr. Spahn.

Gibbons Funeral Home, Elmhurst Funeral Services Personal Care

 

Ten of us came to make final arrangements for mom and dad.

Patience. Kindness. It was personal. They made it much easier and more special to say our good byes. We all had requests and she listened to and accommodated all of them. Those are the sentiments of Maureen Engebretson about how Marya Gibbons took care of her family for both parents of her husband.

Listening is the most important skill to have when a family, large or small experiences a loss. At Gibbons Funeral Home, listening is something we do.

Wills are an important aid in planning funeral services.

 

 

“A testator who prepares a will can attest up front what the preferences are for end of life issues including funeral arrangements and disposition”, says Joe Robinson an attorney specializing in Family Law. A will is an excellent vehicle, in some ways better than a trust, when discerning the desires of your loved one. Since honoring the wishes of loved ones is of paramount importance to families, the Gibbons Family will work closely with families to make sure that all of the concerns are met when making arrangements.

 

For pre-planning or at-need services, feel free to call us with no obligation on your part. We’re here 24/7 to help with questions or any need for service that may arise. Contact us at 630-832-0018

Making pre-arrangements at home with Marya.

 

 

My mom met with Marya Gibbons at her home.

“We didn’t have to wonder. We knew what our mom wanted. It was a brave thing that she did that made it very easy for us” are the words Kate Zable uses to describe her mom’s decision to ask Marya to come to her home to discuss her funeral arrangements. Mrs. Zable has known Marya for Marya’s entire life. That made it a little more comfortable for her to meet in advance to make all of her own choices and remove any doubt as to what see wanted. To Kate, “this was definitely a gift to us”.

The Benefits of Establishing a Trust

Joe Robinson, an Estate Planning Attorney provides perspective on some of the benefits of creating a trust, which is often used as a suitable substitute for a will. There are important elements of this process to ensure that survivors are benefiting from the foresight of the trust instrument and the trust is indeed offering clarity of direction from the loved one regarding their final wishes. Every situation varies, so when choosing a trust or any vehicle to instruct on your funeral arrangements, seeking the advice of a trusted adviser is always helpful.
