The Gibbons Family Just Knew What We Wanted Without Our Having To Ask

Being a good listener is important in Funeral Services. Within the grief and confusion that loss creates, families bring up memories and important details of life that matter to them. It’s in listening to those phrases and thoughts where greater intuitive service is born.

Eileen O’Grady Newell experienced it herself. She describes the myriad of events surrounding services for her mom. In her words, “If you’re planning a wedding, you have six months to a year. In a case like this, you only have a few days. And the mindset is a lot different”. So true.

She relates that the Gibbons knew what to do, took care of all the details, and reminded them of things they needed to do. And then they did the extra things because they listened so carefully. When Eileen’s father said how nice it was to bring the procession past his house, it reminded him of their visits to the Children’s section where his daughter was laid to rest. An alert and conscientious Michael Gibbons rerouted the procession to pass the Children’s Section for Eileen’s dad. It was a little thing that meant so much because a family listened to a family they were serving. That’s what a family does. Gibbons Family Funeral Home treats you like family. Because you are.

Funeral Services that Proudly Serve the Families of Chicago

 

“You come home to us, we’ll take good care of you”.

That’s the promise Rita Gibbons makes today. The same one her Father and Mother in Law, and her husband made for 2 generations, and the one the 3rd Generation continues to make to every family we have the honor of serving.

Chicago is important and always was to our family, since 1935. Gibbons Family Funeral Home is the Chicago presence of our funeral homes. Grandpa Gibbons and my husband went to all the churches and clubs here; it was their life. Both are very proud that their children and grandchildren followed in their footsteps to serve the families of Chicago who meant so much to them.

Gibbons Famiily Funeral Home – Chicago

Gibbons Family Funeral Home – 70 years of tradition honoring our families at Old St. Pat’s. 

When Thomas and Anne Gibbons began serving the families of Chicago with the opening of the first Gibbons Funeral Home, they began a tradition of monthly memorial masses at Old St. Pat’s that now celebrates over 70 years of tradition. Every month, a mass is celebrated remembering all of the families and loved ones who passed away during that month. A month prior families receive a letter of notice to remind them of the mass of remembrance for the upcoming month of the anniversary of their loved one’s passing. Over the years, many families have come to know one another as they have celebrated together. Many families celebrate during several months of the year as the Gibbons Family has provided services for them for generations of their families.

Michael Gibbons of Gibbon’s Family Funeral Home states, “I’m so proud of the tradition started by our grandparents and continuing today. It is a privilege for our family to be trusted into our third generation serving generations of people throughout the Chicago area”. Additionally Michael says “It’s nice to see people at St.Pat’s where we’re celebrating together happy memories”.  Added Rev. Fr. Karl Langsdorf who often is the celebrant at the family masses, “Tommy and Ann Gibbons are smilin’ down on their kids and grandkids for continuing this wonderful tradition they started. I’m sure they’re so proud”.

For any questions regarding our Monthly Mass of remembrance or more information on Pre-arrangements or At-Need services, we are available 24 hours a day at Gibbons Family Funeral Home 773-777-3944 or visit www.gffh.com
