During the span of over 112 years of serving Chicago and the Western Suburbs, Hitzeman Funeral Home, Ltd., underwent a significant relocation and considerable renovation.
In March of 1904, the Hitzeman Family used their home as the chapel (at Keeler and 26th Street in Chicago) including stables for horses located behind the building. The business and facility began to expand in 1922. A two-story brick building was constructed, with living arrangements upstairs.
Starting in 1955 while exciting events were occurring at the “26th Street Funeral Home,” the grandson of the founding father was trying to expand the business in Brookfield, Illinois. After many years of legalities and preparation, the grand opening of the Hitzeman Funeral Home was finally held on Sunday, March 24, 1963.
On Saturday June 26, 2004, Hitzeman Funeral Home, Ltd. celebrated its 100 year anniversary.
In 2007, the Hitzeman family once again, expanded their footprint in Brookfield bringing additional chapels to meet the growing need of the community.
Today, we are proud to present a welcoming facility along with beautifully appointed furnishings and state of the art amenities to serve our families.
We welcome you to view where we have been to where we are today. If you would like a closer look, we would be delighted to give you a tour.
