Hello Ron, I just wanted to thank you for helping us arrange Joyce’s services last week. The process can be overwhelming, but you and the entire staff made it a bit easier on our family. Your respect, professionalism, gentle guidance and accessibility to answer any question and help with any situation that arose was greatly appreciated during this difficult time. Please forward this to your associates who were with us the day of the funeral. They, as well, were attentive, respectful and ever so helpful in so many ways. Many thanks.

Phil, I want to thank you for the wonderful service you provided for my cousin, Fran Vileta, and to me. You went above and beyond what the average funeral homes do for their customers - at least , in my experience. Your willingness to help me every time I called, whether it was regarding Fran's wishes, purchasing a table to hold the toasting cups, and retrieving the acrylic pitcher (and mailing it to me) is sincerely appreciated. Thank you so very much for all that you did!

Dear Ron, I just wanted to thank you again for the care you took in planning and coordinating the services for Gerald Swanson. I truly believe that you have one of the most difficult professions because everyday you work with individuals dealing with their most profound losses. We all came into your service when we were in despair and exhausted from caring for our sick father/husband. We were so grateful that you could arrange such a beautiful service that honored my dad and did not overwhelm us when we were so sad. Thank you.

We would like to thank and recognize the Beidelman-Kunsch team, and Phil Barnum in particular, for their help and support in arranging the funeral for my mother, Marcella M. Shipley. They provided excellent suggestions on what we needed to consider in making our plans. They were able to pull records from my father's funeral from 40 years ago which helped guide some of our decisions. They helped coordinate with the church, sharing information so we only needed to provide it once. During the visitation and service Phil discretely managed the process. He was there when actions needed to be taken but in the background when they did not. At the cemetery special efforts were made to accommodate the many older guests who participated. In every way the team made the whole process as easy on us as possible. We greatly appreciate the efforts of everyone involved in my mother's funeral.

John was very welcoming and Ron went above and beyond to to meet our needs and requests. He provided our family with the best possible services and support. The fact that we were given the freedom to honor my father as he wished. The fact that the atmosphere in the funeral home did not feel heavy or overwhelming. Other funeral homes were strict, uncomfortable, more pricey and with an unwelcoming feel. God places certain people in certain places to do work for humanity. From doctors to teachers, etc... And funeral homes happen to be our last stop on earth. Ron is one of those people placed at your funeral home helping God do work for humanity. A funeral arrangement is the last thing I ever wanted to experience (one of my biggest fears) but thanks to the service we received we were able to face the situation in a very smooth, lovable and honorable way.

They made me feel like our funeral was the most important, even though I know they had others that were spending more money. Facility was beautiful, clean, and only 1 ceremony at a time which I liked. The staff was great. We got everything as promised. They cremated things with him as requested, and saved watch and defibrillator. I appreciated that they were able to meet with us right away.

My brother and I met with Phil and Ron at the Rte 59 location when my mother went into hospice care to plan the arrangements. Phil was extremely compassionate and helpful in planning my mother's services. Never once did we feel any pressure to do anything, their primary concern was to make sure we did what was best for us and for our Mom. We selected a beautiful casket but we weren't a big fan of the lid panel. Phil called the casket company and special ordered a specific panel for the casket per our request. When Mom passed away, they worked very diligently and quickly in arranging her services. They did a marvelous job making my mom look simply like she was sleeping. Ron was with us through the visitation and made sure we had anything and everything we needed. They also took the extra care to be sure to place the urns of my Mom's two dogs with her for burial, which is what she always wanted. Her family plot is in Ohio, so they worked with a funeral home there and arranged for her to be flown home so she could be laid to rest next to her father. Even after, they have been extremely helpful to me regarding handling my Mom's affairs. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is need of their services; they were professional, compassionate, and made the worst days of my life a little bit easier.

I don't wish death on anyone, though I am thankful you helped me through the process with such loving passion.

Your sincere concern in helping Kristen with details in Florida was greatly appreciated. Mom looked beautiful, and peaceful for the funeral service. Please express our appreciation to everyone who had a part in preparing her body. Kristen said the funeral home staff in Florida even commented how nice she looked. The death of a loved one is a difficult experience. Our family and friends are thankful for people like you, and your staff. It made a difficult time much easier. Thank you again for the love, comfort, and support that you provided to all of us. May God Bless you in the new year. Bev & Jim

Knowing how hard this is for a family to get through, your kindness and guidance made the process much easier to manage for our family even when we changed our minds several times a minute. Your patience and understanding a families needs at this time was much appreciated. We had many compliments on the arrangement, communication and atmosphere of the visitation. Those compliments also reflect on your efforts giving us your professional direction which proved to be tasteful for our family and dad’s friends to visit. Thank you again for your part in making dad’s day a positively memorable day for everyone. We could have not asked for a more perfect day for dad. Mark Mayer

On Monday, May 18, it was my privilege to serve as the organist for the visitation and funeral for Charles Rozhon Jr. which was held at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Rock Falls, IL. My purpose in writing is to commend and encourage those representatives from the Beidelman-Kunsch Funeral Home who participated in this meaningful event. Since I have at other times been critical of the services of other funeral homes, it is especially important for me to highlight and take this time to commend those who know how to serve others in a meaningful way during this time of need. My wife and I were sincerely impressed by the caring and compassion shown to the family members present and others in attendance. Your representatives were both caring and compassionate in their demeanor. They were well organized and paid close attention to detail. Their attitudes were genuine - they came to serve to the best of their abilities. The respect for the deceased was also obvious. While I was busy playing, my wife happened to notice the funeral home representative pause and perhaps pray a moment before closing the casket just before the funeral service was to begin. Never, in all my years (I'm nearly 70 years young), have I seen or heard of such respect being shown. Not too long ago I actually had to bring to the attention of another funeral home in our area the fact that having a representative bring the casket forward while chewing gum was inappropriate and made it look like they were pushing a refreshment cart at a ball game. The attitudes of the representatives in this case were simply fulfilling the obligations of their job and no more. While I am unfamiliar with the additional services that were provided to the Rozhon family, if there are anything like what I observed, I am certain that they too, were carried out in a caring manner without taking advantage of the situation in any way. Thank you and may God continue to guide you in all of your efforts to provide caring, meaningful end-of life services to others.

Dear Phil & Shelley, Thank you so very much for your kindness and heartfelt assistance during the planning of my dear brother's Cremation, and the selection of his beautiful Urn, the Memory Cards, and Guest Register that you created for his Celebration Memorial. Our guests were blown-away by the beauty of his Urn, and thought the Memory Cards with flowers & various verses were a very nice remembrance of my brother. In the event, that anyone is looking for a place to host a "Celebration of Life Memorial," we highly recommend the Bolingbrook Golf Club. We worked with Jill Maldonado and she graciously met all of our needs. Our Memorial was held in the Board Room which holds about 50 people. The room has windows on three sides with a view of the Golf Course, and there is also a door that opens onto a large Patio. The Buffet was more than delicious - our guests raved about the food - which is not your typical buffet. Everything was scrumptious, we were able to bring our own desserts. Also, when you are hosting a Celebration of Life Memorial, there is no charge for the room or the Audio Visual. The Day tugged at our heartstrings, but was also a joyful occasion due in a large part to the Venue where we held Bob's Memorial. Thought I would share all of this with you and your Staff. Thank you again, and may you continue to find fulfillment in the career you have chosen. You provide heartfelt assistance along with true compassion to Family Members who have lost a loved one. Take care. Warm Regards - Phyllis

I was unaware as you obviously have noticed about discovering that she had passed away. We were not really close, however, I do remember her quite vividly. I found out via my sister about the wonderful service you and your employees put forth. I just wanted to say thank you. A heartfelt and warm atmosphere as you have in your services deserves a heartfelt thank you. Wishing you and yours peace and good health, Pete J. Gervasi

In June, 2011, I met with one of your staff at the Rt.59 location to work through pre-need planning for my parents. This is never an easy thing to do, but you took me through each step with compassion and kindness. On May 27, 2013, Dad passed away. One call to your Washington Street location was all that needed to be done. Phil Barnum came to St. Patrick's Residence, where Dad and Mom were living. Dignity was observed at all times. I was so thankful that the pre-need planning was in place. The death of a loved one is such a difficult time to make decisions regarding funeral events. We worked with Phil throughout the funeral service and every detail was attended to by him . Just seven weeks following Dad's death,my Mother passed away. We laid her to rest on Friday, July 26, 2013. Phil Barnum again answered the call to provide us with the services needed. He was so compassionate and kind. Thank you all for such wonderful service. Dad looked so handsome and peaceful, and Mother was beautiful and looked like the lady that she was. God Bless you all as you provide service for grieving families in our community.

All of the elements were embraced with respect and sensitivity. John Kunsch has a very talented , sensitive, personable staff. They are knowledgeable and service oriented - all of them.

I want to express my gratitude for the kind and compassionate care all of the staff at Beidelman-Kunsch provided at the arrangements for, the organization of and during the actual visitation and funeral service for my mother Oral Grisch. From the late evening phone call placed on the night Mom died that was answered by a real person to jumping my car when it stalled in their lot and throughout the days preceding the service and even afterward Joe, Ron and Marissa have been extremely supportive and totally customer service oriented. Their concern was always to make a difficult time for our family easier.

"Our family appreciates all that you did for us. Knowing how you handled my father's funeral many years ago, we had the trust and confidence to know that the same would be true for our mother. I would recommend Beidelman-Kunsch to anyone. Thank you for being there for us. God Bless."


"I just wanted to thank you for your kind attention to the needs of the entire Thompson family. Sometimes living in a wealthy community like Naperville we can easily forget that there are people in the world without the resources we so often take for granted. It is nice to know that there are businesses in our area with true compassion for all of our neighbors. Thank you."


"We just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the way your staff handled all the arrangements after my father’s death. Since Dad had always taken such pride in his military service, we knew we wanted to pay tribute to this important time in his life. We were very affected by learning that John Kunsch Sr. was a Vietnam Veteran himself. Due to this connection, he understood the great importance of honoring my father’s military service, making this portion of the funeral truly special. It is comforting to know that in many ways your staff is just like the people they serve. Thank you so much for guiding our family through a very difficult time."


"When our dog Misty died we felt like we had lost a family member. To help the kids (and ourselves) we wanted to properly honor Misty’s life. The staff at Beidelman-Kunsch was very comforting as they took this loss as seriously as any other. We appreciated the guidance in choosing a commemorative stone to place where Misty has been laid to rest. Thank you for showing such compassion during such a difficult time for our family. We are more at peace with Misty’s death now that we have such a beautiful way to remember her."


"After I lost my sister I was unsure how I would move forward, let alone make arrangements for the service. The staff at Beidelman-Kunsch was extremely compassionate as they guided me through all of the arrangements. Suggestions on adding personal touches to the service brought comfort as I wanted to adequately honor her life. On the day of the service I felt a sense of peace as I knew that all of the aspects of the service were properly taken care of. From the street, I had wondered if there would be ample parking. However, with the large number of visitors, I was surprised to learn how much parking was actually available to everyone. Thank you for such warmth and compassion as you handled every important detail of my sister’s service."


"We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the entire facility has all amenities on ground level - even the lounge. The hallways and washrooms were wide enough to maneuver a wheelchair without any difficulties. When we arrived for the service, we were able to drop Uncle Russ at the front door and he was able to wheel himself in without assistance. Thank you for making your facility so accessible to those who are in need of special accommodations."


"Words alone cannot fully express how much I appreciate all the help and support you provided during a very difficult and emotional time. Your gentle voice guided me along with ease, while bringing an unspoken comfort. Thank you so very much for the extra care you took with my father and the kindness you extended to me."


"We were so very pleased with your work for the stone memorial for my mom. We asked for you to match the one of her mother, Edith, next to her plot. It is a perfect match! Thank you so very, very much."


"During our recent family tragedy, it was comforting to find a caring staff such as yours. You showed genuine compassion and patience in explaining all of the details of my father’s service. The most touching and memorable part of the service were the military honors that were conducted for my father. This was beyond all expectations and will stay in our memories forever. Our heart-felt thanks go out to everyone."


"Thank you for your help in planning the funeral for my mom. The private visitation was perfect and just what we needed. Ahlzheimers had taken away so much of her dignity, but in the end you made her look beautiful and at peace. Thank you again."


"We wish to express to you our most sincere and deep thanks for your great kindness to our family during the loss of our mother. Your personable, professional service provided us a great rock of support during the days of our mother's loss. Thank you so much. Her wake and funeral were beautiful, just as she would have wished. Knowing that we could rely on you then, and now as we settle our mother's affairs is of great comfort to us. Our whole family joins in expressing our thanks and appreciation. God bless you!"
