As a person who's 100% Czech, I look forward to my annual visit to this sanctuary. First visiting as a child with my mom, aunt and cousin, I quickly learned it was a kind of peaceful oasis, a step back in time, a place to practice respect and reverence under old-growth trees (there are also the fond memories of having to fetch water, running past the hooded statues!). As a member of both Czech genealogical societies, I made a recent visit to glean information on my family and to photograph some headstones. One of the office personnel, Beverly, was an absolute doll in that respect. She showed me more grave information than I'd learned previously, and encouraged me to visit the impressive Eastland Memorial, after marking a map of the grounds to help me find certain family markers. She was wonderfully kind. I've decided to purchase a "brick" there as I have had two relatives perish in that tragedy. I can't wait to go back. Bohemian National Cemetery is a Chicagoland garnet gem.

Judy Tybor of the Tybor Funeral Home forever impacted my life. Judy gave our family the gift of peace and closure when my son suddenly passed away. At a time of great sorrow, she provided the orchestration of the funeral services for my son with great compassion and care. Words can never express my gratitude for the kindness given to our family. Every detail was tended to by Judy. At a time when money is something one does not want to think about, Judy proved to be capable of achieving the desired result with the minimum use of resources. Judy's attentiveness and experience eased the stress of such an unexpected and traumatic event on our family. As a client I give my highest recommendation to the Kubina Tybor Funeral Directors, and as a mother I am forever in their debt.
This is a very nice place for a funeral. It has a kitchenette in the back of the long parlor and small cafe seating (just 1-2 tables). There is coffee and a sink. One of the neatest things about this place is that they have a sizeable kids room just off of the parlor. It is colorful with kid toys, a TV and VCR/DVD. In the old days noisy kids and babies would have to go to the ladies room or worse, the basement where all the embalming takes place. The kids room makes all the difference. Instead of sushing your kids to be quiet during the service you can, instead, direct them to the kids room or take them there yourself. The staff was also very friendly and polite. Great place.
