I just want to drop a quick note saying how amazing the Team at Care Memorial and Hann Funeral Home were. My sister and I had to frantically put everything together for my Father, and they helped every step of the way. Thank you so much!

I want to join the positive chorus of clients that trusted care memorial with their loved ones final arrangements. When I began the process before my father passed, JJ was extremely helpful in answering the multitude of questions that I had. When my father did pass, I merely had to make a phone call to assure him dignity in death. The prearranged service for my father was beautiful and JJ insured that it completely fulfilled our families' needs. Rosemary and Maureen were also extremely helpful, assuring that my father received his Veteran's burial benefits. The other final paperwork was completed quickly and accurately. I felt like I was treated like family, and I am very relieved that I trusted Care Memorial.

Rosemary at Care Memorial as far as I can say has gone above and beyond since we were approximately 550+ miles apart earlier this year she and I set the basic last expense pre-arrangements for my mother in law. Just recently my mother in law passed away.Once again we implemented our prior arrangements Rosemary has magnificent people skills and is very easy to communicate with. I am going to give Care Memorial 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. I can’t say enough good things about this business.

I would like to thank the outstanding cooperation and care of our loved one Billy. From the moment we contacted Care Memorial we were treated like family. JJ, his wife, and Amy were so passionate and went above and beyond to help us and handle the arrangements during our time of loss and sorrow. I would highly recommend there service in the time of need. The Zebell Family

September 02, 2020

I very much appreciated all the attention to detail that Care Memorial Cremation paid to my wife's arrangements, including the on-time delivery of the Death Certificates and my wife's ashes and urn. They certainly made things easier for myself and my son in completing such an unexpected, unwelcome and untimely death. I really cannot express the gratitude I feel with the help and assistance they exhibited in finalizing everything for us. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who has been put in the position I am/was in.

At a most difficult time, made even harder by the Covid-19 virus, John, Allen and Amy showed compassion, patience and respect while taking care of my mother. It's hard to put into words how much that means to me and my family at this time of grief. We thank you all for your kindness and absolute care.

I, along with the rest of my family would like to thank all the staff at Care Memorial for their kind, compassionate and professional manner. From Rosemary in the beginning, making all the arrangements necessary, to Amy who greeted us as we arrived for the viewing. They were very helpful in our time of grief. Amy also hand delivered the urn with my Dad’s ashes to my Mother. She also came in to let my Mom know if anything else was needed to let her know. A+++ personal service!

I found Care Memorial online. I contacted them and employed them for cremation services for my deceased cousin. Everyone at Care Memorial handled every detail with dignity, respect, promptness and without missing a detail. When I would call in, they immediately knew who I was and my cousin's case. I am very impressed, thankful and would use them again for sure.


May 22, 2020

During our time of a second passing of our loved one within 95 days apart and Covid19 spreading rapidly... Dough and his staff was very friendly, helpful, and very professional. The virtual service provided was awesome as I had to make it happen.. without them I don’t know what I would have done... a saving grace.. I highly recommend.

The team at Care Memorial is a reminder how a business should operate. Their willingness to go above and beyond to help families during an emotional period speaks volumes. Their facility and prices are also a reflection of their generous services and understanding of how laying a loved one to rest should not be a time of stress for any family, but a moment of comfort. Thank You Care Memorial team for all you’ve done. Sincerely, Bryan and family

John and staff, I just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for your good work with the cremation of my mother. The folks we dealt with were kind, compassionate, and understanding. You guys didn't bat an eye when I asked for her artificial knees. My hope was to create a sculpture from them to dedicate to her, which I did! Thanks again for all your help.

I found Care Memorial after shopping on-line with price being my main objective for a simple cremation for my cousin. From the first call to the last---with many in-between--and a few bumps in the road to get Power-of Atty, each was not only professional and patient, but also appropriately compassionate and empathetic while working out the details. Eventually, it all ended being wrapped up by Rosemary who always updated me and kept me in the loop with courteous professionalism. I am very grateful for their help in accomplishing this task of a cremation for my very special cousin--who had died suddenly by the way.

I want to thank everyone at Care Memorial. As a long time Romeoville resident I was very surprised to find a local business that could help during this period of grief. Everyone at Care Memorial was very understanding and professional. I also appreciated how easy they were to work with, everything from the original paperwork to the final dropoff went smoothly and I have nothing but praise for how great they were. I truly appreciate how effortless you made this entire process for our family.

I'd like to thank Care Memorial for the caring service they provided to our family when my father died.

These few words cannot fully express how much we appreciate Care Memorial’s assistance during this difficult time. Amy was so responsive to our many questions, and went out of her way to ease our minds that our cousin was being cared for with respect and in a timely manner. Allan and the rest of the staff also made sure the personalized urn and documentation were perfect. Thank you all for the professional, compassionate and caring service you provided our cousin and our family.

Care Cremation was invaluable during my mother’s recent illness and passing. Rozi and the entire staff were incredibly kind, sympathetic and professional. They made a difficult time for our family easier to bear. From start to finish everything was explained throughly and handled in an extremely timely fashion. We cannot thank them enough for everything.

Carla Pastorelli

Dear Mr. Hann, Thank you so much for taking care of my Aunt's cremation in 2017. You were patient, professional and compassionate. Today I just made arrangements for my mother-in-law. Your services are five star. Care Memorial is honest, caring and professional. Thank you. I highly recommend your services to my family and friends.

The Care Memorial staff was kind and knowledgeable. I had absolutely no worries from beginning to end, everything was handled with compassion and professionalism.

Carolyn Grady

October 13, 2019

The Care Memorial staff handled my father’s passing a few years ago with such care, respect, timeliness, and professionalism that there was no question whom to contact when my mother passed recently. Rosemary kept us abreast of the steps in the cremation process, and helped us in selecting prayer cards, a suitable urn, and the urn engraving. In this stressful time when we had no idea how to coordinate with the cemetery and monument maker, Rosemary went the extra mile. She contacted these groups for us and stepped us through the processes until all was clear to us. The Care Memorial staff is top shelf at an emotional, confusing time when a family needs caring professionals with whom they can trust to get them through.


July 15, 2019

After my Father passed away, Care Memorial stepped right in and help direct me through the process with great support and compassion. It was difficult for me living half way across the country and they made everything so much easier. I’m very grateful I chose to work with them.


June 27, 2019

They took care of my mother with such care. They have been amazing from start to finish. They definitely care about each and every family. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Irvin Cooper

I’ve never made “Final Arrangements” for anyone and I really appreciate the way that Care Memorial & staff handled all aspects of the task at hand. From start to finish Care Memorial handled and acquired all the necessary documents required. Care Memorial did an excellent job in every phase of the process. I was very impressed with Care Memorial’s Facility and its tastefully designed and furnished public areas that more than fit our needs. John and his staff were attentive to our needs and concerns, they were respectful in the way they met our needs. I can never Thank Care Memorial enough for all services, that they willingly provided to my family at a price point that was unmatched by any other service providers that I contacted. I would/will recommend Care Memorial to all who are in need of their Services. Sincerely, W. Kelly

I have nothing butt wonderful respect and regard for the outstanding care that Care and all of its staff offered my family in such a time of sorrow and uncertainty. My dad had always wanted cremations and my mother and I were not familiar with the process and did not know what to expect. The facility is beautiful and sent him away to his final rest with such dignity that was far beyond my expectations. He looked wonderful and we were able to say our final good byes in a lovely room that was on par with any funeral home except at a reasonable cost that was attainable with our pocketbooks. The included urn is exactly what he would have liked. I will be forever thankful from the bottom of my heart that I was able to say good bye in such a dignified manner that we could afford. Everyone was wonderful and thank you to John Hann for all of our questions so quickly and eagerly. You, Kirsten and John really helped my family out in the worst of times and we will be forever grateful.

John and his staff did a great job in the handling the delicate task of the cremation, all the proper papers, mass cards and burial urn.

January 10, 2017

They were patient with our lack of knowledge about the process, and guide us with compassion.


January 02, 2017

I was satisfied with the private memorial service that they held for my husband. It was simple and provided closure for our families. They also handled most of the paperwork (made arrangements with hospital, permits, social security), which I honestly don’t think I would’ve been able to handle o my own, especially since this was very unexpected. Overall, I do recommend them.


December 27, 2016

Care Memorial did a great job when my dad passed. Courteous, caring, knowledgeable and always available to help.

The staff at Care Memorial was outstanding. They were professional and easy to talk to. It was a wonderful business to work and I proudly recommend their service.

Lane M. Latto

December 10, 2016

The facilities were fantastic. However, as the next kin, I now have to hire a lawyer and get authorities involved because all paperwork, personal effects, and actual remains were given to another family member of mine without my permission on separate occasions. I was only sent one email about transferring the body from the coroner, and nothing since; even though I had emailed a question (with no response). This could have all been avoided if the staff made sure to speak and contact the right person.


November 07, 2016

I was great experience Kerstin and John helped in every way possible to ensure that everything ran smoothly and that my mom had a great send off to her heavenly father. It brought my family and I closer together and I appreciate all that was done by Care Memorial.

Ethel M. Penn

At the worst of times they were helpful, caring and efficient. Kirsten is wonderful and helped me complete all necessary forms online as I so not have a car to travel to Removille.

We sat down with John has a extremely helpful answering all our questions in regards to all the services they offer. What I pleased with is that there was no absolutely no pressure on what way we should proceed. John took care of all our needs very quickly and with respect. We will highly recommend Care Memorial.

Russel J. Piszczek

July 31, 2016

We had a wonderful experience with Care Memorial! They made a difficult and stressful time easier. John was extremely kind, professional, and helpful. It was a relief in the midst in our grief to have someone we felt we could trust take care of all the details. We were of course upset and not thinking very clearly, there things that would never have a occurred to us to ask about, and I am so thankful that John was there to guide us! We were especially impressed with how quickly they responded, how well Care Memorial communicated throughout the entire process, and that they personally delivered our mother’s cremains to us in that beautiful box. We will be recommending Care Memorial Cremations to everyone; I can’t imagine anyone else providing service that would match theirs, and the price was very reasonable.

Barbara Neron

July 22, 2016

Under the circumstances I had a great experience. Very professional staff. I visited the Bridgeview location to pick up my grandma’s cremains and it was nice, clean, and the lady I met there was very nice. I looked into other options before calling Care. Other places I called, people who answered the phones was rude, or really had no idea what they were talking about, the price was unheard for a direct cremation, they were over charging for extra copies of death certificates. I let my family know, that when it’s my time, call Care. I can’t believe that there was no hassle what so ever, I really appreciated that in my time of sorrow.

Bobbie J. Hynes

July 20, 2016

I went to view the cremation. Her body was placed in a room before I got there and I was able to see her. I brought a friend we were able to sit after the viewing and talk. The place has a very good to feel to it. I will recommend it to anyone.

June 02, 2016

Very respectful, professional and fast. We were travelling and my dad passed away in Chicago. It was tragic, sad and messy… we needed all paperwork to be done quickly, so we could bring his urn back to our home land. Then, we had our own ritual, and Care Memorial made it so easy for us. Everything was on time and neat. Hugely appreciated

I am glad to take this opportunity to thank John and the others at Care Memorial for the sensitive way they helped my family and I when my sister Madeleine passed away. It was especially touching when John participated in the Journey Care celebration of Madeleine’s life at their facility in Barrington. Thank you all so much.

Madeleine C. Nelson

May 15, 2016

I never write reviewers, but I’m making an exception for Care Memorial. This operation is outstanding is every way. Not only that, but my wife and I did some price comparisons when my mother was in hospice, and no other crematorium comes close to the deal offered by Care Memorial.

Barbara L. Leiden

May 09, 2016

I have used Care Memorial Cremation twice within a year both my parents have past away within a year and John and his staff have been there for everything I have needed. For my mom get a urn to that was real close to the color of her and have helped me in every way in every detail. There service is by far the best for the price and they work with you on details. With my dad I used just the basic package that they other and with my mom they got the urn that was fitting to her. In both times I was so busy with everything I was able to do everything by phone and email and John to personally delivery the urn back to you. Every time I have always had many questions on different things and they have been very helpful with my questions and getting me the answers in very quick response. I would have to say that John and his staff are respectful and caring and knowledgeable, and personal, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CARE MEMORIAL CREMATION to anyone and to my family. When I had to make the decision to stop treatment with my mom the next call I made was to John and told him what was happening and John and his staff started helping me right away it was then only hours later I called him back to say she had passed away and he took care everything, within a very very respectful manner. I truly thank them for all there hard work they have done for me.

Kathleen Muller

April 30, 2016

We certainly were pleased with the service that both John and Kirsten gave our family, at a time when we really needed it. They were very understanding, in what we wanted taken care of; and gave us options on which ways to complete them. We would, and will recommend to other families, in the same situation. God bless Katie, Walt, and Sean.

Jeannine E. Acuff

April 07, 2016

Every aspect of the process was handled with care and consideration. Any expectations I has were exceeded and there were no surprises. I would use the service of Care Memorial again, though I hope I don’t need them too soon.

Our family was devastated by the loss of my husband. At a difficult time in our lives, each and every person we dealt with was amazing. It made this so much easier for my family.

Bernard T. Mooney

March 31, 2016

I’m 36 and lost my husband very unexpectedly in an accident.. Care memorial cremation was very nice and I have absolutely nothing bad to say of them or their services.. I’m grateful for their care.


March 31, 2016

The care and compassion that was expressed towards my family was above and beyond anything we had ever experienced. Care handled us with kid glove from beginning to end. Even in our sorrow and during this difficult time of loss, our hearts were comforted by the respect, empathy, and compassion Care provided us. I intend to inform my circle of friends so they can inform their circle of friends about Care Memorial Cremation, a AAA+ business from where we stand. Thank you Care for the exceptional services you provided to us at the loss of our Mother, Sister, Aunt, Mother-in-Law, Grandma, Niece, Cousin and Friend. Lois Marie Perry. May God always provide for you as you provide for others! Stephanie (Sister)

I can’t say enough about the personal, professional and truly caring service I received from John at Care Memorial! I felt like he was a family member, and took care of my Father during this time, as if it were his own Father! I would hope that all people who are in the ”transitional” process of death would have someone as loving, kind and respectful as John was to us during this very personal and difficult time! Thank you!

After doing research I filled out Care Memorial Cremation forms about 2 months ago. My mother died about 3 weeks ago, Care Memorial made a emotional time much easier. We had discussed what I wanted and the price when I filled out their forms. They did exactly what I wanted in a timely manner and they did it for exactly the price we had agreed upon.

My mother passed away. And it was devastated for me and my family. We called to Care Memorial, because we need to bring my mom ashes to Russia. She has a place in Moscow cemetery close to her late husband and that’s why we move her cremated remains from Chicago to Moscow. Thank you very much John for providing professional, respectful and quality service for our family. We are very appreciated your help and support. Michael Oz.

I cannot express in words the gratitude I feel for this company who treated my family and I like their own family. They were patient, loving, understanding, kind, generous, professional, prompt and courteous through it all. They made this difficult time much easier to deal with and eased my family and I concerns. I handled my sisters arrangements from out of state, you would have thought I was sitting right across from them the whole time, the whole staff is absolutely amazing!! Thank you, thank you!! From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!!

The people at care memorial handled our situation beautifully. I lost the number to the cremation company I had originally chosen, I’m glad I did. The woman on the phone was polite and efficient, I had all paperwork emailed to me during the phone call, and in less than 30 minutes they were on their way. I cannot say how gracefully they handled my family and my father. I would highly recommend Care to anyone looking to hire.

Hi John: You and your staff showed compassion and caring from the moment I first spoke with Kirsten. Thank you for helping me thru a difficult time. The one thing that I had requested.

John was the 3rd person I called. I was impressed, the other company we’re like robots. I felt like John knew that this phone call wasn’t easy to make. John was professional to the very end. Before finding out that John was the owner I already had it in the back of my mind I was going to call and tell his boss what a great job he did! I have already recommend Care Memorial Cremation and will continue to.

From the first phone call they were caring and respectful. They did what they said they would do when they said they would do it. Everything was made easy for us and worry free. The paper work was done online and simple, corrections made immediately. Could not be happier with them and have already referred them to others.

In a time of great emotional upheaval and when practical decisions had to be made, the Care Memorial Cremation team was supportive far beyond the family’s expectations. Thank to Keith for a sensitive interview to collect information, to Kirsten for organizing memorial cards and especially for coordinating with the US military (We are grateful to the US Navy Honor Guard for very solemn and respectful ceremony.), and to John Jr. for overseeing the process and for his considerate and cordial visits to our home.

John and his staff took care of my husband’s cremation. They could not have been more caring and helpful. They responded instantly to communication, online and by phone. I filled out the forms online and one call at a time of death was all I needed to do to put things in motion. At a heartbreaking time, it was a godsend to have things goes so smoothly.

When my mother passed, Care Memorial was there an hour after we called. The man who came was so kind did not rush us at all. He treated my mom with such respect. He helped make a difficult time easier. When I first met with John top set everything up, he too was unhurried, answered all my questions and kept his word on everything he said would happen. He was honest, a much appreciated value in this industry.

September 25, 2015

Care Memorial Cremation’s service was Top Notch. I was both thoroughly impressed and touched. Their responsiveness was instantaneous. They had a very caring yet professional approach at every step along the way. We were in a hurry to hold a memorial service in only a few days. We chose the direct cremation package. The turn around time from Care Memorial Cremation was unbelievable quick. From the first phone call until the delivery of cremains took only 40 hours. Take into account the fact that State Law requires waiting 24 hours from the time of death until cremation can begin. Am now spreading the good word about Care Memorial Cremation because I believe in their abilities, appreciate their empathy and admire their straight forward approach.

Really exceptional service by John and his staff. Having had to coordinate funerals for other family members, by comparison John made the experience much easier and more meaningful. My family was able to focus on family and friends instead of making sure the funeral director was doing his job. I can’t think John and his staff enough for ensuring the dignity of our loved one and being so attentive to our needs.

In deciding which funeral home and crematory facility to care for my father was seamless. I must admit that we've had several options and I went to each funeral home and cremation facility to see I felt will be a better fit for my family. I'm pleased with the decision that we've made. While making the decision while my father was still alive felt awkward, I was assured and comforted to know that I was making the right decision. Thank you Haan Funeral Home and Care Memorial for making this as easy as possible. I knew my father would receive the best care he deserved and taking the time to call. It's never easy losing a loved one thank you for making me feel at ease.

The service we were given was wonderful. John took care of everything for us. We had time to spend with Mother/Grandmother. She looked beautiful and at peace. We had lots of time to choose those special things we needed. John was very caring and gave us all the answers we needed. We would recommend Care Memorial Cremation to everyone. The cost was minimal, no hidden costs. Family of Laura Musekamp

Kirsten was very helpful, understood what families needs and concerns where. Every time I called if she didn't answer a staff member on call would answer and was very polite and helpful as well. I came in from out of state to help my family with this process and I was not familiar with the chicago surrounding areas but Kirsten was very helpful, any questions I had no matter how many times I called she was very helpful. The staff made this transition for our family very helpful.

I will, and have already, recommended Care Memorial Cremation to family and friends. I found their business via an Indiana government site and was initially very intimidated to use make such an important decision when I had no personal references to go by. Every phone call I made and every contact I had was addressed by very professional and caring employees. The price quoted was the exact amount charged. The delivery of the remains came in a beautiful box, hand delivered to me at my home by the director along with the promised death certificates within 5 days. I am grateful that my heart telling me they were a wonderful company guided me so well.

I couldn't of been more happy - This a hard time for most people John made it a lot easier. I was referred to another company by the Chaplin of a hospice company and right away didn't care for the service I was getting. I thought to myself there are other company's out there told the guy I'll think about it.. I decide to call a few more places then I would pick, Care Memorial was the first call I made and stopped right there.. Great Service at a difficult time.

Care Memorial Cremation came highly recommended by a friend. They were very sympathetic and very helpful during the worst day of my life. They explained everything so you can understand when you feel like your life is chaotic. They delivered our loved one to us. When that worst day of your life arrives I would highly recommend Care Memorial Cremation.

I can't thank the people at Care Memorial enough for all of their help. These people were helpful, kind and compassionate. I signed the paperwork in the afternoon, not knowing that I would need them early that evening. There was no delay in coming when they were called and they kept me posted on all the next steps. They worked with me throughout the week and went out of the way to make sure that all affairs were in order and all my wishes were taken care of. Kristen and John are truly the best. It was one less worry that I needed to take care of. Thank you for everything!

John was so caring and informative at our time in need. He never tried to up sell us as other crematoriums did and the pricing was affordable unlike some others we shopped. He brought much comfort at a difficult time.

March 07, 2015

My brother died suddenly. He had no wife or children and most of my family was out of town. We were looking to have a simple cremation at a reasonable cost. Care Memorial (John and Kirsten) far exceeded my expectations with the help and services they provided. In addition to the actual cremation, they arranged the pick up of the body from the medical examiner, provided a viewing room, handled the death certificates, assisted with the obituary, provided mementos (small medallions), and small ash containers, delivered the remains to my house, and generally guided us through options and decisions in a caring way throughout the process. This was a stressful time (emotionally and financially) for our family and Care Memorial was wonderful in helping reduce that stress. I highly recommend them.

Care Memorial Cremation handled my mother's cremation with the utmost professionalism and dignity. I would recommend their services.


December 27, 2014

Owner John Hann Jr. of Care Memorial Cremation and his staff were courteous, respectful, thoughtful...and quite professional, overall. They surely know how important to the bereaved the funeral arrangements (which was presented in a simple, straight -forward way) are in helping us to pay tribute to our beloved Mom while facing the reality of her death. Care Memorial knows the importance of a smooth -running wake/funeral in which the gathering of our family, friends and a couple of the hospice medical staff,...and the support they gave us in the Care Memorial's beautiful chapel,...helps make us stronger and assists us through the first step toward a healthy acceptance and reconciliation. The cost of a wake/funeral should not predominate everything,...but with such a difficult, tough economic environment these past 7 years for the bottom 95% of the population,...Care Memorial meets the challenge by providing fees that are well below competitors that we checked out, directly. I would highly recommend Care Memorial to family, friends and cohorts. I could do no less. Thank you John and staff.

My wife was ill for some time so i had the benefit of planning ahead and calling several cremation facilities before the need was eminent. I called at least eight facilities and service ranged from wonderful to horrible, prices from $595 to $3500 and knowledge from reading from a script and "let me check with someone and call you back" to answering all of my questions. Care Memorial Cremation and John Sr. and Jr. answered all of my questions, provided me more answers to questions I didn't even think to ask, gave us the opportunity to have a private viewing at the cremation facility, were caring and compassionate, and offered all of this at one of the lowest prices I found. Were they the lowest price? No, but they were one of the lowest, especially after the others added in all of the extras that Care included in their base price. The price quoted was what I paid and there were absolutely no surprises. When my wife passed away, John Jr. and Keith were there within an hour and were kind and caring. The cremation was scheduled 4 days later and all of the paperwork and death certificates were available on that day. Their facility in Romeoville is clean, bright, inviting and comfortable and their willingness to work with us for a small viewing before the cremation (at no extra charge) was incredible. It was a sad day when she passed, but I am lucky to have found Care Memorial Cremation to assist us in this troubling time. Thanks you!

September 05, 2014

I came upon "Care Memorial" when my Mother passed. She had spoken of being cremated a few times over the years so, when it was realized she had no insurance for final expenses, and my husband and I had very little money ourselves. We were devastated. To top things off even more, the FH I sent her to quoted a price of $2795 for a direct cremation. The cheapest pkg they had to offer. I just was mortified. I tried every ave. possible to get monies. Even the city she lived in funds were exhausted for such things.So I looked up Crematories that would do a cremation that would fit our wallets. I ended up speaking with a woman who felt my pain. She suggested I research to find a crematory that would meet my needs. I did just that. Care Memorial turned out to be my first, and last choice .From the moment I spoke with the owners of "Care Memorial", I felt I made the wisest choice. They explained to me every step of the way, what i was to do; what they will do; and what to expect. They were Kind, Caring and Compassionate, and the price of their services met with what we could financially do.The Day of the cremation my husband were impressed with the beauty of the facility, and the Warm Greeting we received at our arrival. We were able to say Our Good-byes, which gave myself, husband, and her llyr old grandson closure. Care Memorial gave she and, us the dignity that was needed for this final moment. You see, Mom had passed 3 weeks before, and was headed to the county morgue then, to a Pauper's field. We had $1100 and everywhere I searched I came to an expensive, disappointing end. Whether you believe in God or not. Care Memorial was heaven sent to us. I will never be able to Thank them enough for caring for my Loved One & My Family.
