Our Faith Communities are partners in our commitment to our families.

Perhaps one of the kindest and most concise things a person could say, is what Fr. Tom Paul says. “The Gibbons have a deep understanding of how they fit into the lives of the people of Elmhurst and our neighboring communities.” Tom (Tucker) Gibbons repeats his father’s words when he says, “We are blessed to be in the middle of several wonderful faith communities in Elmhurst, Bensenville, Villa Park, Berkeley, Oak Brook, Oakbrook Terrace, and so many others.”

It’s our mission to not only make our home available to families to celebrate the lives of their loved ones, but to see it through all the way through to religious rites and funeral services at the cemeteries or memorial services. We work closely with the clergy, ministers, grief counselors, bereavement ministries in all of our faith communities to make sure we are all seamlessly and professionally taking care of every detail for our families. When Visitation Deacon Tony Spatafore says, “When Gibbons are involved, we know everything is going to be taken care of”, or Pastoral Assoicate Patti Riggs says, “They make our job much easier”, that means the world to us. Because their assistance and guidance are vital in making sure our families experience a dignified and beautiful service.

Our combined ministry is a partnership we treasure. We love our community and we love the faith communities within. We’re all in this together.

People feel stress. You can see it. You can feel it. We pride ourselves on “getting it right” every single time we serve every single family. Losing a loved one is a traumatic experience for people. What our family can do is make sure that all the details of your arrangements are seen to and taken care of.

In fact, everyone will know when service has been performed correctly, professionally, and with compassion. As Marya Gibbons says, “When you get it right, there’s a collective exhale”, and she adds, “everyone there can feel it”.

We can’t eliminate the pain of loss. But we can ensure that your arrangements go smoothly, and your final time to celebrate your loved one’s life, is completely devoted to doing that and only that, while we take care of every detail from the biggest to the smallest.

Marya & Tommy took such good care of us

Joe and Regina were going through a very difficult time. In a very short time span they were dealing with the deaths of very close family members. First Joe’s dad, then his grandmother and then Regina’s father; a very unexpected and heartbreaking loss. They went from never having planned a funeral service to planning 3 in a very short span of time. It was overwhelming to say the least. Joe and Regina were primary planners in all 3 services, and each had very unique and different desires for how they wished to be honored. “The Gibbons, Marya and Tommy, did everything to help us. They instinctively knew what to do and what we needed. They were such a blessing”, according to Regina. She added, “They instantly put us at ease on the budget issues and saved us so much time and emotional stress”. She and Joe were able to do what they needed to do; honor the lives and memories of people they loved. You don’t really know for sure when the need for funeral services will arise. What you can know is that the Gibbons Family is there to take good care of you.

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 www. gibbonsfuneralhome.com

Being a Veteran becomes part and parcel of who they are.

Kathy Gidcumb’s dad was a veteran. His service was important to him. When it came time to arrange services for Kathy’s dad, Tom Revane,  two things were certain. His services would be held at Gibbons Funeral Home in Elmhurst, and his service in the military would be an important part of remembering who he was and how he lived his life. Tom went on to marry, raise a family, serve his community and parish. He was a proud member of the Knights of Columbus. Marya Gibbons explains that “being a veteran becomes part and parcel of who a person is”. Adding, “we ensure that every benefit a veteran earned 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”. Kathy Gidcumb says it best, “It really was done just lovely”.
