OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19


While the COVID-19 pandemic has temporarily changed our daily lives, it hasn’t changed who we are.  We are still people who live, love, laugh, and grieve. In light of the recent social distancing protocols that have been put in place, Kolssak Funeral Home at 189 S. Milwaukee Ave. Wheeling, IL announces today that the facility is well suited for private, ‘drive-thru’ style visitations. The facility and property are uniquely positioned on a very private parcel with adequate thoroughfares behind the building where friends and families would be curbed to their vehicles while being able to view the deceased and visually pay respects to the family.  As this novel virus may have taken away handshakes and loving hugs, we will not let it rob us of our humanity.  Although these conditions are not ideal, Kolssak Funeral Home is uniquely positioned to offer full-service funerals at this time and place. During this time of disconnect, it is imperative to share your support at your loved one’s tribute wall, there you can share a memory, a story or even a picture.  Any act of kindness will be greatly appreciated.
