Probably one of the main reasons that funeral homes like this one have stood the test of time - they care. Pride, compassion and a strong value set helps create the relationships with families that in cases like this, when the relationships are solid and valued, they can continue for generations.
“It really is the relationships with families,” says Stephanie Jones-Kastelic, co-owner. “Families come in with a handshake and usually leave with a hug. We get to bring them some sense of peace. You form an intimate relationship when they are at their most vulnerable. It feels like meaningful work.” Whether helping a family through a difficult time or supporting a community event, Friedrich-Jones has been there for generations of Naperville residents and those from the surrounding communities.
