Dan and Joy did a wonderful job with all my Mom's funeral arrangements. They were quick to respond to E-mails and phone calls. They really care about doing quality work and providing really good service. I am grateful for all their help in working with my Mom's nursing home, the cemetery, and the florist. Their florist does amazing work that went above and beyond all expectation.
I would recommend this place to everyone. The staff there is so helpful and patient. They walk you through the entire process and answer all questions.
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).
Symonds-Madison Funeral Home went above and beyond when it came to planning my son’s cremation. I’ve never had any experience with this, but they made everything easy to understand, helped walk us through everything, and I was even given helpful materials as a grieving mother. I love the fact that this is a family run, local business and it’s apparent they really care about what they’re doing and the families they are helping. I cannot recommend them enough to help through the difficult process of planning any services.
Couldn’t be happier with the funeral service. Through these tough times you’ve made it very easy and simple. The owner was very kind and understanding. Thank you for having the Mora-Albarrán family.
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.
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!
Dan and Joy were great and treated our family like they were their family! I really can’t thank the staff enough for helping us turn a tragedy into a celebration of an amazing life.
I met Joy (Owner) at a community service event. Joy is very knowledgeable,understanding and easy to work with.
