Over 70 years of service The Simkins Funeral Home has been serving the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago with a proud tradition of family values and a strong sense of community spirit for over 70 years. Simkins Funeral Home, an independent and family owned funeral home now under third generation ownership, has been relied upon by families to provide professional, dignified and caring services to families of all faiths when faced with the passing of a family member or friend.
Tailoring services and providing a comfort level when making funeral arrangements We, at Simkins Funeral Home, recognize that value and convenience are important in today’s society. Therefore, we will tailor funeral services to accommodate any specific or changing needs. Whether choosing burial or cremation, one of the Simkins brothers, can take you step by step through all of your options. This approach will help you understand that although simpler services such as immediate burial or direct cremation are possible, full traditional services with viewing are also available. Each family brings with them their own unique set of perceptions, beliefs, and priorities. We strive to bring all these into the proper focus and provide a comfort level to help families select services that are right for them.
Putting families at ease and treating you personally One of our goals at Simkins Funeral Home is to put families as much at ease as possible. One way we do this is to take as much of the burden off of the family as possible. Families are often relieved when they find out how little they need to do when making funeral arrangements. We at Simkins Funeral Home can do everything necessary unless the family chooses otherwise. Tasks such as ordering flowers, placing death notices in the papers, and coordinating the clergy, music, and cemetery are only a few tasks handled by us. The funeral business is a service business. We, the Simkins brothers, treat every family as if we know them personally. We provide care and attention to detail that families not only deserve, but can expect.
