Gibbons Family Funeral Home – 70 years of tradition honoring our families at Old St. Pat’s.
When Thomas and Anne Gibbons began serving the families of Chicago with the opening of the first Gibbons Funeral Home, they began a tradition of monthly memorial masses at Old St. Pat’s that now celebrates over 70 years of tradition. Every month, a mass is celebrated remembering all of the families and loved ones who passed away during that month. A month prior families receive a letter of notice to remind them of the mass of remembrance for the upcoming month of the anniversary of their loved one’s passing. Over the years, many families have come to know one another as they have celebrated together. Many families celebrate during several months of the year as the Gibbons Family has provided services for them for generations of their families.
Michael Gibbons of Gibbon’s Family Funeral Home states, “I’m so proud of the tradition started by our grandparents and continuing today. It is a privilege for our family to be trusted into our third generation serving generations of people throughout the Chicago area”. Additionally Michael says “It’s nice to see people at St.Pat’s where we’re celebrating together happy memories”. Added Rev. Fr. Karl Langsdorf who often is the celebrant at the family masses, “Tommy and Ann Gibbons are smilin’ down on their kids and grandkids for continuing this wonderful tradition they started. I’m sure they’re so proud”.
