Five Generations of Service
For over 130 years, we’ve been walking alongside families to ensure they receive compassionate care, high-quality service, and even grief support during life’s most difficult moments. The families we serve are our friends and neighbors, and we believe this makes all the difference when it comes to creating a service. The approach we take to walking alongside our community is embedded in the specialized knowledge we have as owners and funeral directors. Our family passes down this knowledge and experience from generation to generation.

Privately Owned & Operated Crematory
Though cremation is becoming more popular, many people think they aren’t able to have a service if they choose cremation. With Justen, this is simply far from the truth. Because we opened McHenry County’s first crematory in 1983, we have over 30 years of experience caring for the loved ones of our community. And, since our crematory is privately owned and operated, you know your loved one never leaves our care. That’s our promise to you.Cremation Services

Transporting Your Loved One In and Out of State
The regulations and logistics involved in such a transfer requires the level of expertise and care that only Justen Funeral Homes can deliver. From the paperwork and travel bookings, there’s a reason that families have trusted us for over 130 years to care for their loved one, near or far. We also know that many families would like to have a funeral or memorial service before their loved one is transferred back home for burial or interment.

Why Plan Ahead?
There are many reasons why planning your own service is a most considerate gift to your loved ones. Putting your final wishes in writing not only ensures you’ll be remembered in the way you like, but it also takes extra stress off of your family. When you preplan with Justen, know your preferences will be followed. Meet with our preneed specialist today to get started.
Tell Their Unique Story
We know your loved one was unique, and we want to portray that in their service. Creating a memory table, a video tribute, a balloon release – the possibilities are endless at Justen Funeral Homes. We’re committed to crafting a warm and unforgettable tribute for your loved one.
We spend time with families to craft the perfect design and oversee the quality from beginning to end. Doing so allows us to not only ensure a high level of detail but also to manage each step to guarantee the expected outcome. This is one more way we show our care and commitment to the families we serve.

There are so many things to take care of! I appreciate Amy taking care of things for me! I appreciate all her time and all the help!
To find out it could all be done online was a relief. The process was very easy. One call in the middle of the night brought an empathetic, caring professional. Paper work and payment all made online. Thank you Mark, Nancy and Robert for taking good care of Mom!
From my first phone call through pre-planning, the transport of my loved one from another state, and leading to a beautiful, memorable service, the Justen team was outstanding – knowledgeable, dedicated and caring. They anticipated and handled every detail so that I could focus on caring for my family.
