Joel and Wendy, you were amazing. You provided exception service under a very fast timeline. You were wonderful with the family, our friends and really helped us put together a beautiful send off for my dad. You helped us keep calm during a very emotional process and did so with kindness and patience. You went above beyond every step of they way. Thank you.
Leonard Memorial Funeral Home provided exceptional and compassionate service for our family during an emotionally-wrought time. On very short notice, the staff, particularly Joel and Wendy, were thoughtful, kind and patient as they walked us through every step of the preparations. Their professional care went above and beyond and helped us to pay fitting tribute to my father-in-law. Thank-you!
Joel and the staff at Leonard Memorial Home were wonderful. They were compassionate, comforting and very helpful. They guided us through the process, anticipating our needs before we even knew what they were. We will be forever grateful to Joel and The Leonard Memorial Home for their kindness and competence.
Our experience with Joel and Leonard Memorial Home was outstanding as we were in need to make things happen very quickly. Joel accommodated our requests and did so with professionalism and compassion. He was a great help through the entire process, from planning the day before our visitation all the way through the burial.
Myself and my family are thankful for his efforts and everything he and Leonard Memorial Home did for us.
We had an impressive experience at the Leonard Memorial Home. Joel did everything he could to make wake and funeral experience calm, timely and comfortable. Thank you Joel and the Leonard Memorial Home for providing comfort and empathy during our period of sorrow.
Patience; compassion; kindness; sensitivity to children coping with grief for the first time -sensitivity to adults coping with grief for the hundredth time... these are only a smattering of the qualities I experienced as our family made arrangements and held our visitation at Leonard Memorial Funeral Home for my husband. We were in need of being accommodated quickly due to family not expecting to be attending a funeral while in town from each coast. The graciousness, hospitality and professionalism extended to us by Joel and his attentive staff, made a time of profound grief just a bit more palatable. I will be forever grateful. Thank you.

As a funeral service professional for over 40 years, I can say without hesitation that Joel, Craig and Nicole provided our family with exceptional and truly caring service surrounding the death of our beloved daughter and sister, Kristi Matson. We will be forever grateful to this dedicated group of professionals
The staff at Leonard’s is absolutely exceptional and we could not have ever wished for a better experience in laying my sweet sister to rest. My family and I will forever be grateful for their compassion, kindness and honesty. Truly exceptional.
The staff at Leonards Funeral Home was perfect in every way. They showed consideration and comfort to our family for our mother's service. We have used their service two other times in the past. The service was everything my mother and our family wanted with their help. Thank you, Joel, for your kind words at the end of the service. God Bless you all.
When my son, Joe, passed away, they live in Glen Ellyn so we went to Leonards Memorial and Funeral home. We were met at the door with so much kindness and warmth. They walked us through all the steps and were so kind. They went above and beyond what I could have hoped for. They made the worst day of my life the best possible event I could have hoped for. They are truly wonderful people and will recommend them to anyone always. Thank you Leonards Funeral Home. I will never forget your kindness.
Leonards did a wonderful job with my father's services. They were very kind and knowledgeable and professional, and helped us every step of the way. They were gracious to all the friends and family who came to pay respects. And they gave us good advice when we needed it.
Their memorial home is attractive, comfortable and homey.
I highly recommend them.
Dear Joel & Family - Sincere "thanks" for all that you did for our entire family. Your professionalism, kindness, patience and so much more really comforted us. It will never be forgotten. With deep appreciation,
Thank you so much for the kindness and patience you have shown. I will recommend your funeral services to any and all who ask my advice. Sincerely- Lloyd Pierce
I want you to know that everything you did was excellent. The service for my husband and all the help received was perfect. Thank you for everything. I wish you the very best. Sincerely, Marian Ferris
The Leonard Memorial Funeral Home handled the funeral arrangements for my father, his cremation, and the interment of his ashes. They provided the guest book for the funeral service and "thank you" notes. They also arranged for the interment to be conducted with military honors. Everything they did was done very professionally and with great care and empathy. We were more than satisfied with their services.
When my aunt passed away last year we had a very difficult time choosing a funeral home. My aunt had no prearrangements set and was currently living in Naperville. We went to many funeral homes in the Wheaton/Glendale Heights area but could not find one we were completely satisfied with and somehow ended up in Glen Ellyn. We stepped into the Leonard Memorial Home and right away were greeted with compassion and sympathy. The director was able to hear us out on our current situation and help us organize every detail down to the flowers we needed. We were not pressured into anything extra and were able to take our time figuring out what we needed. After the visitation (which accidentally went on an hour longer than scheduled) the gentleman who worked that evening came up to us at the end and offered to close the door and give us (the family) a little extra time alone to say our goodbyes. We really appreciated that offer. The next day, after the service and burial were completed, we were instructed to take our time coming back to the funeral home to gather our belongings and that the funeral home staff would take good care of everything we left behind until we returned. Our whole family was very grateful for everything Leonard Memorial Home did for us and we could not stress that enough to them. Thank you again for everything in our time of need.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
