Once we’ve served you at Gibbons, it raises the relationship forever

The Gibbons Family lives, works and plays in Elmhurst. This is the third generation of the family now providing service to Elmhurst, Oak Brook, Bensenville, Villa Park and other neighboring communities. Tom and Marya have 6 children involved in every activity at schools, parks and elsewhere in town. They both belong to City and Parish service organizations. They are blessed to meet a lot of people around town. It’s very common that when the time of need arises, the Gibbons already have a connection with the family needing their assistance. The relationship with the families change levels profoundly and forever when the neighbors you know from school, baseball, dancing or the grocery store are pressed into service to help you through a very difficult time. It’s an honor and a privilege to serve our communities and become an even more important relationship in your lives.

A Friend When You Need It Most

The Gibbons Family has been providing funeral services since 1935. Today, our family is in its third generation of service in 4 locations; Elmhurst, Chicago, Itasca and Hinsdale. We’re continually reminded what a privilege it is when families entrust this most important responsibility to us.

Our family has grown up in the funeral business. Each new generation learned from a very young age that our role in the communities we serve and the families who live in them is special and our interaction with them is often during the most difficult and trying days of their lives. We’re not the only people who provide this service. As in all consumer decisions, people have a host of choices when the time for funeral services arise. At Gibbons Funeral Home, we have continually strived to make our funeral home a place where people will feel most comfortable bidding a final farewell to their loved one.

Helping You through a Difficult Time

We have been in a perpetual state of remodeling over the years to make sure that our visitation area is bright, comfortable, and offers the sense of a very warm and inviting home setting. There are a lot of practical and legal matters to attend to at the time of a person’s death.

The most important thing to a family is seeing that their loved one’s life is celebrated without concern for the dozens of details that must be attended to. That’s another place where you can count on us. The coordination of events with funeral services rarely has weeks and months of preparation. That time is nearly always limited to a few days. The Gibbons Family will assist you in navigating all of the responsibilities with compassion and efficiency, allowing you to spend your precious time where it belongs; with your loved one.

Pre-Need Funeral  Arrangements…Planning Ahead

Gibbons Funeral Home can accommodate your desire for a pre-arranged funeral service and we’ll be happy to offer a complimentary consultation to discuss preplanning your arrangements.
