We are where you need us to be. 


Anderson-Goodale Memorial Homes can be found in 3 full service, family owned and operated locations; 21131 W. Renwick Road, Plainfield (Crest Hill), 606 Townhall Road, Romeoville, and our most recent addition, Goodale Memorial Chapel,  912 S. Hamilton, Lockport.

It was in 1991, Richard and Marilyn Anderson opened the first of the property in Romeoville serving that community and several more Will County communities. Being home to larger chapels and smaller spaces, Anderson Memorial Chapel was immediately able to provide visitation and funeral services for both smaller and larger family needs.The Andersons purchased property in Plainfield/Crest Hill on Renwick Road in 2006 that included a home on the west side of the large acreage where Richard and Marilyn lived. They broke ground for the new Memorial Home in November of 2012 and opened their doors to the community in January of 2014. 


Despite the difficulty and resources needed to build from the ground up, having a working knowledge of exactly what kind of space requirements you want and need are an important advantage. "Having served so many families already in our Romeoville location, we learned what worked well and what improvements we could make to enhance the experience for our client families. It was time to move beyond just ferns and curtains and create a comfortable, spacious space with more natural sunlight and open architecture to offer a more open and airy setting", states Richard Anderson. He later added, "We're celebrating lives here and saying goodbye to a loved one. Families are gathering to provide support and strength to one another. We needed to create an environment that offered as many personal options to families as possible. And we did". The lounge is also designed to accommodate seating for as many as 50 persons for a catered meal with multiple amenities. This has been especially helpful for Memorial Services.A beautiful sitting area greets everyone who passes through the front door. 


In 2019, Goodale Funeral Home was added to the Anderson Memorial Homes. Located in the picturesque and historic downtown Lockport, its beautiful architecture offers charming and elegant, time honored settings for families. We’ve added technological updates to make it easier for our families needs, while maintaining the beautiful stained mosaic art glass accents that make this a special setting. The location just on the up-slope of Hamilton Ave. above the Desplaines River is a bucolic environment loved by the generations of locals who refer to this historic area of Lockport with great pride.
