Funeral Arrangement Seminars

You never think about or maybe don’t want to talk about arranging funerals for yourself or a family member. These interactive lectures will help answer any questions that you have and perhaps were afraid to ask. You will learn about what to expect from the funeral director, Social Security, disposition choices, veteran’s benefits, pre-funding and insurance policies, Medicaid qualifications, legal obligations, protecting funds, and securing authority and potential beneficiary recipients and basic funeral costs. You will also learn about the roles and limitations of power of health verses a power of attorney and how either can be your advocate as well as wills and probate. It may sound like a lot, but when you leave, you will feel a huge weight has been lifted from your shoulders.

Little League

Hitzeman Funeral Home was proud to sponsor both the Brookfield,  LaGrange Park and LaGrange Little League and Girls Softball again this year.    We have been fortunate to sponsor some of these events to make sure the children have a fun, work as a team as well as giving us all something to
cheer for.  A great season and a job well done by all the players and coaches.  It is true when they say, you can’t beat fun at the ballpark.

Go teams!


Theatre Night

The Hitzeman Family was proud to sponsor their 8th Theatre Night Event at the Theatre of Western Springs ( on May 30, 2018. Despite the torrential rainfall and the flooded streets, we had a great crowd despite mother nature. We are already looking ahead to next year.

      Music Under the Stars

      The Hitzeman Family was excited to sponsor Music Under the Stars on
      Wednesday, July 13, 2016.  The entertainment of the evening was The DuPage Band.
      The skies opened up that and gave us some much needed rain.  The event was moved to Park Jr. High.  However: this did not dampen the evening.  They covered the Hits from Motown, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s through today and they kept everyone singing and dancing!

      We were able to join in the fun by passing out Ice Cream during the Concert featuring Shout Out.

       Come Join Us

      Hitzeman Funeral Home, Ltd., would like to express our appreciation for all who attended our 110 year Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, June 21, 2014.  We were so moved that all were a part of the history of the Hitzeman Funeral Home.

      We would like to thank:
      The Robert E Coulter, Jr. American Legion Post 1941 who moved the crowd with a stirring Veteran Tribute including a 21 Gun Salute.
      Trent James Ketchmark by entertaining the children of all ages with his magic.
      Dan Hamilton, sang the very best of Dean Martin to the Beatles and soft rock favorites.
      We would especially like to thank our sponsors:
      Alpine Haus, Sawa’s Old Warsau and Mattones Restaurants catered the event.  The food was delicious and had them coming back for more.  Phillips Flowers & Gifts provided the balloon decor that
      set the mood for this festive celebration.
      It was a great day and we thank you for stopping by.
      We look forward to serving the community for many years to come.
