To all the families who have supported and put their trust in me over the last 40 years as a licensed funeral director/embalmer there are some exciting changes coming.

I will be moving from Bensenville to a bigger office at 1199 S, Arlington Heights Road in Elk Grove Village. My office will be situated in Grove Memorial Chapel, one of the many chapels to better serve and accommodate my families with their funeral concerns and needs.

I will also be able to conveniently meet you at your residence or one of the many funeral homes that I am associated with in the Northern Suburbs and Chicagoland areas.

I am available 24/7 by phone or if you would like to make an appointment please call Jim “Jimmy” Geils at J Geils Funeral Services NOT Geils Funeral Home at 630 247-6623 or email me at to discuss any of your questions. Please visit my website at

Thank you for your trust and continued support
James W. Geils
