The Service to your Family continues long after the visitation and final arrangements.

 

 

After the visitation, the Knollcrest Family stays in touch. There are many, many issues and responsibilities that still arise. Whether it be matters dealing with final needs at a cemetery, like headstones or monuments, or insurance forms that require our assistance, we are prepared to be there for you from now forward. For all families, coping with loss is a life-changing experience. Many have little experience in dealing with the other arrangements and legal notifications, etc. that must take place. That’s what we’re here for. To help. To help with all of the details that are part of this process that we can take care of with you and for you. It’s our mission to make sure that the primary thing on your mind is your ability to focus on the healing for your families and friends as you celebrate the life of a loved one and cope with the loss. Sometimes, days, weeks, months or even years pass, and we have an urgent request for a death certificate for a legal purpose. It’s an opportunity for us to remind a family that we’re here for them at the time of their services, we’re there for them when they pre-plan their services and we’re there for them every moment after that time where we can be of assistance. That’s a big difference that an independent family-owned and operated funeral home provides. We know you. Our families have worked together. We’ll be there for you today, tomorrow and well beyond.

For any services; pre-planning, at-need arrangements or any questions you may have, contact us t 630.932.1500 or visit http://www.knollcrestfuneralhome.com

The Knollcrest Family has always considered our building and facilities as our home. We’ve comforted our parents here, raised our children here, and members of our family continue to live here.  The feeling we wanted to convey is that we’re sharing our home with you and assisting you in welcoming your friends and families into a home; not just another building.

We do that by seeing to every detail, large or small. Every family has their own way of wanting to celebrate the life of their loved ones. We work to make sure that we’ve accommodated all of those wishes and let our families focus on receiving their family and friends in the most comfortable and hospitable environment we can create. Our home is your home.

Knollcrest Funeral Home, Lombard-Caring for Veterans.

 

At Knollcrest we take Extra Care for Veterans. They deserve it.

“The sacrifice that our young men and women make placing their lives on the line matters to us, and we’ll ensure that all of the benefits that they’ve earned and are entitled to will be carried out and they receive them” states Bob Van Staalduinen owner and funeral director of Knollcrest Funeral Home.

Veterans are entitled to an American Flag, a headstone from the Veteran’s Administration, and a member of the Armed Services present to play “Taps” and present the American Flag to the family on behalf of the President of the United States and the thanks of a grateful nation. Our region is now blessed with the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery nearby, where all burial expenses are free of charge for a Veteran, a spouse and dependent children.

Many veterans are still unaware of the benefits available to them in grateful recognition for their service. When it comes to the men and women who wore this nation’s uniform, we’re committed to take the extra time, effort and care to provide everything they’ve earned. In fact, it’s our honor to do so.  For a full explanation and consultation on Veteran’s benefits or any funeral services, contact us at 630-932-1500 or knollcrest@knollcrest.com

For any services, pre-planning or at need, contact us at 630-932-1500 or knollcrest@knollcrest.net

Knollcrest Family Celebrating 25 Years serving your families.

Time has gone by very quickly here. Nearly 3 decades ago, Bob and Elaine Van Staalduinen decided to sell their home and mortgage everything they had to build Knollcrest Funeral Home. Faith is vital to the Van Staalduinen Family and Bob often refers to his role in helping families is as much a ministry as a business. Being there for people in their most difficult times is something important for this family; a mission to help them heal from loss and celebrate life. For Bob and Elaine, it is a blessing to them that two of their children have come to work at Knollcrest. Daughter Holly works in the office, now part time as she raises children of her own and Joshua, who is a Licensed Funeral Director. Adding to the excitement of a Silver Anniversary this year for the funeral home is a family wedding for Josh this August.

As our home continues to grow with our community, our family continues to grow along with it. Knowing that our ministry is continuing into another generation is a great source of joy for us and a renewal of our commitment to all of the families we have served and will serve. We thank you and we’ll continue to be here for you.

For any services, pre-planning or at need, contact us at 630-932-1500 or knollcrest@knollcrest.net

Pre-planning can be a long or short range plan.

Catherine’s mother sat in the lobby of Knollcrest Funeral Home while attending a visitation for a neighbor from Glen Ellyn area. Mrs. Galvin told her daughter that Knollcrest was where she wanted her wake to be. She said so because she thought Knollcrest was a pretty and cheerful place. Catherine’s father had passed away first, and his arrangements were also at Knollcrest. Catherine’s parents were both Veterans , and her father’s military service was especially important to him.  “Bob and the staff at Knollcrest saw to it that his military service was recognized.”  Two years later, Catherine’s mother’s wishes and military service were honored when it was time for her own services at Knollcrest.  “I’d recommend Knollcrest in a heartbeat,” states Catherine.  And she has.  Like every family we serve, it was an honor to serve Catherine’s family. For any questions about arrangements, Pre-planning or at need, please feel free to call us at 630-932-1500 or visit here.

 We are here to serve you, day and night on any day you need us.

Why we do what we do.

We receive a lot of letters telling us that we made things easier for someone. It’s not because of the “Thank you letters” that we do what we do, but it’s a great reminder of what a privilege it is to be so trusted by families. It’s also a reminder of just how important this responsibility is in the lives of people. There are few vocations out there where people feel compelled to hand write a letter of thanks. These are very dear to us. We read them. Over and over we read them. They certainly testify to the service we’ve provided and we’re very proud of that. They also testify to the “goodness” of the people we serve. That means everything to us. We Thank all of You!

If we can assist you with your arrangements at need or for Pre-Planning, call us at 630-932-1500 or visit us http://www.knollcrestfuneralhome.com/

Many Expenses are Hard to Prepare For

Today, financial planning has become an important part of life for families. Whether it’s college, weddings, new cars, a more suitable home for a growing family, we anticipate these expenses as part of life. One expense we will all be faced with at the end of our lives is funeral expenses. Financial planners have begun to factor this in to the formula of expenses. Not everything happens in the order of life we expect. At Knollcrest, we commit to do our best to help sort through all of the expenses and resources to make this time easier for families who are facing the loss of a loved one. We’ll help process all of the life insurance forms, veteran’s forms and other paperwork that seems so daunting during the planning of services. We’ll wait until the insurance issues are resolved for our costs. We’ll help you make affordable choices while ensuring a dignified service. We’re there to provide comfort any way that we can when you’ve lost a loved one. We’ll work hard to make sure the financial concerns are dealt with while you celebrate the life of your loved one.

Cremation is an Intermediate Step Toward a Final Resting Place

 

Cremation is an option that has risen dramatically in the past few decades. While the original decision of Cremation for disposition takes some pressure off families, a decision must be made as to where the final resting place of a loved one’s remains still needs to be decided. There are many options for services for Cremation, containers (urns), up to and including a cemetery burial. To discuss all of the options with regard to Cremation with a Knollcrest professional, please (click here)
