Since 1908, four generations of the Tezak family have served over 10,000 families in Joliet and the surrounding area. We continue the tradition of service today and want you to feel as though you are part of our family.  Every detail will be attended to, and we would like you to experience as much comfort and peace as possible in your time of difficulty.

We are proud to offer comprehensive family-care, including our:

  • Our Celebrations of Life memorialization packages designed to help your family celebrate the unique story of your loved one by sharing, honoring, celebrating, remembering and eventually healing.  Our knowledgeable, well-trained staff understands that every family has needs and preferences, and we are here to collaborate with you to create a personalized, meaningful celebration to remember your loved one.
  • Home, while contemporary, comfortable, and serene, is designed with the entire family in mind.  We are fully accessible with ample parking space, a children’s activity room, private family lounges as well as several options for gathering, remembering, worshiping, and celebrating a life lived.
  • Commitment to include you as part of our family with extended aftercare services when the initial funeral and memorialization are complete.  We host annual Spring into New Life, Veteran’s Day, and Candle and Tree Lighting memorial events to extend help in the grieving process while your family and friends begin to journey back to their day-to-day lives.
Each person is unique and we at Tezak’s Home to Celebrate Life are here to honor those we serve with dignity and respect. Although some services may seem traditional or similar, no two services are alike.

We treat each family and each service in their own unique way. We will provide you with information in order to prepare a unique and memorable service. We want you and your family to experience the comfort
and the peace of mind that your loved one is cared for.
