We had a double funeral Which to my knowledge has never been done before but both bodies were beautiful even with the small hiccups I loved the attention Daniel and Joy gave my family. I would love to use this funeral home in the future. Thank you Daniel Symonds and Joy Symonds.
When my sister passed away the thought of going to a funeral home to help set arrangements was just too much to bear. I'm glad to have met Dan, he was truly genuine in the process and respected everyone's wishes. Her funeral was was beautiful, the floral arrangements were beautiful and the entire staff was very helpful. Overall they helped us on the hardest day of our lives by being very sympathetic and kind to my sister as well as our family and friends.
Our mothers loss was very sudden and unexpected. Symonds Madison funeral home was extremely understanding, sympathetic and patient in guiding us through these very difficult decisions and processes. The prayer cards were very well done and we felt reflected our mothers personality appropriately. The family all feel that we made the right decision in choosing Symonds Madison at this very difficult time.
Daniel the funeral director has gone above and beyond to help with the entire process. He did an excellent job with my aunt's service last week. Two years ago he helped us with my father in law's service. It's hard to lose a loved one, but finding the right place is important.
Daniel made us feel like family the minute we walked through the door. He was very compassionate and made us feel comfortable in trusting him with our loved one. During such a difficult and emotional time, your mind is elsewhere; when so many things need to be handled. Daniel took care of everything for us and gave us the gift of time; time for us to be able to say goodbye to my mom without being rushed or having to worry about every little detail that needed to be done. My mom looked beautiful, the service was beautiful and the flowers were beautiful. Thank you Daniel and Joy for helping us through this difficult time, for handling all the details that are overwhelming for the family and for offering your support. I would give you more than 5 stars if it were possible. Rogelia Aranda
In reference to my husband's passing, my greatest joy is that he was honored so deeply and with such respect at Symonds Madison Funeral Home. My husband changed his mind in the last two weeks of life in that he wanted to be cremated in his Army uniform. I wanted him to have an Honor Guard send off. My son and I read to him introductions on the web home pages of three area funeral homes. Doug chose Symonds-Madison because it is "proudly Veteran and family owned." I couldn't be more pleased with his choice. Daniel, Joy, Penny, Val, Bob and all the staff made my dreams for his life celebration happen in less than a week---a beautiful and wonderful service.
The sudden and unexpected passing of my husband left me in shock. I wanted to insure he was buried with full military honors. My daughter used google to locate a funeral home that specialized in military services. Mr. Daniel Symonds greatly exceeded my expectations at all levels. His compassion, empathy and appreciation for those who served was evident. He went above and beyond to make the entire process seamless and worry free for the entire family. When the services were concluded I felt my husband was given the respect and love he deserved for serving his country. I highly recommend Symonds-Madison Funeral Home to anyone during their time of need military or non military.
The preparation for my dad’s viewing was a fearful moment for our family, however we knew in our hearts we needed that for closure. I cannot stress how amazing Dan and his team were with every lasting detail, from how peaceful and beautiful my dad looked to us, to the flowers which after nearly a week are full and just beautiful!
I met Joy (Owner) at a community service event. Joy is very knowledgeable,understanding and easy to work with.
My mom's memorial was on Jun 12, 2019. My sisters and I highly recommend Symonds-Madison funeral home in Elgin, IL if you want honesty, be treated with respect. Dan, Joy, Bob and Jim went above and beyond our expectation. Everything went well and more. They answered every questions we have with complete honesty. They will work with whatever budget you have. I love the homey but professional atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable and relax (Funeral-Memorial services always Stress & makes me anxious).
