We are very happy with this new website redesign which has become a storehouse of information on funeral traditions, cremation, the process of deciding a funeral, counseling for the bereaved and other questions, presented in a clear, cohesive way.
Skokie, IL (PRWEB) August 11, 2015
Since 1923, the Haben Funeral Home & Crematory in Skokie, Illinois has been serving Skokie and the surrounding area’s families in their most emotionally distressful times. With an instinct for caring and a love of helping others, four generations of the family have worked in the business, with the most recent addition being great-grandson of the founder, William Haben, who just marked one year as a licensed funeral director, embalmer and certified crematory operator. Besides personnel, the business continues to evolve physically and virtually as well, with new renovations to the building made earlier in 2015 and now a newly-launched redesigned interactive website.
“Naturally an online presence should be a reflection of ourselves and our character,” said owner John W. Haben. “We are very happy with this new website redesign which has become a storehouse of information on funeral traditions, cremation, the process of deciding a funeral, counseling for the bereaved and other questions, presented in a clear, cohesive way. The site is elegantly designed and very navigable.”
The company’s building was recently updated to enhance its already home-like environment where family and friends can gather for remembrance and recollection, while maintaining an atmosphere of quiet dignity. Spacious lounges, classic furnishings, and exceptional maintenance, combined with a convenient location, beautiful landscaping and ample parking, offer a superior facility for celebrating a life well lived. The lounge is a small reception room available to all families, where people can meet with family and friends to enjoy a coffee or soda during visitation and pre-service hours. Some families even bring in light snacks such as cheese and crackers, cookies or fruit.
Throughout their history in Skokie, the Haben family and the Haben Funeral Home & Crematory have been very supportive of charitable causes, both locally and nationally. Members are active in the Metropolitan Family Services of Skokie Valley, the Skokie Valley Rotary Club (36-year member), the Kiwanis Club of Skokie Valley, and many local churches throughout Skokie Valley. Their ongoing contributions to the local community include operating an annual coat drive and soup kitchen through Rotary and hosting a dance marathon fundraiser for the local high school district. Owner, John Haben serves on the board of the Independent Merchants of Downtown Skokie as well as the Board of Directors for Wintrust Bank’s North Shore Community Bank and Trust, the Skokie Chamber of Commerce and village commissions. He has also belonged to The Luxembourg Brotherhood of America for over 30 years.
