Celebration Packages

Our highest priority is maintaining the respect of the families we serve and the dignity of your loved one. We will continue to offer Traditional Services (Visitation/Funeral Service/Mass) as well as Cremation and Memorial Service Options, adapting to meet the evolving needs of the times.

We offer families who would like an alternative way to commemorate their loved ones during the visitation with a Celebration Package. A Celebration Package consists of Adult Beverages and Catering.

Food and Beverage packages are optional and offered due to popular demand. Many families appreciate an old-fashioned "Irish Wake," making the visitation day a celebration of life.

To our knowledge, there are only two funeral homes in Illinois with a valid liquor license offering a full bar. Hitzeman Funeral Home is the only one in Brookfield, LaGrange Park, LaGrange, Western Springs, Riverside, North Riverside, Berwyn, Countryside, Hinsdale, Oak Brook, Willowbrook, and neighboring communities that provides this service.

All Celebration Packages include a professional bartender, attendant, and setup fee, and can be scaled according to your needs. Beverage packages come with cheese, sandwich, veggie, fruit, and cookie trays. We can customize the offerings from soft drinks to a full selection of beer, wine, and spirits. Fresh flower vases will also be provided to elegantly complement the family pieces in the refreshment area.

Beyond the typical packages, custom arrangements can be made at any time.
