How it all started for Anderson-Goodale Memorial Homes 


Today, Anderson-Goodale Memorial Homes has 3 locations; 21131 W. Renwick Road, Plainfield (Crest Hill), 606 Townhall Road, Romeoville and Goodale Memorial Chapel,  912 S. Hamilton, Lockport.In 1991, Richard and Marilyn Anderson established their first location in Romeoville, serving the community and Will County residents. Being a larger chapel in Will County, they were immediately able to provide visitation and funeral services for any size of services.Rich and Marilyn acquired property in Plainfield/Crest Hill on Renwick Road in 2006, including a home on the west side of the large acreage where they lived. Breaking ground for a new Memorial Home in November of 2012, they opened their doors to the community in January of 2014. Having the experience of the Romeoville location, they were inspired to build their new location with many accommodations and features they realized would make people more comfortable and feel more at home. Seeing those amenities making a difference, similar plans were included in updates and renovations to their first location as well. Aware of what people loved in their first location, they learned what they would love even more. To hear Rich Anderson say it, “It was time to move beyond ferns and curtains”. The new space was to be even more spacious with open architecture and sunlight. Among the priorities;  It had to be comfortable. It had to be welcoming. It had to accommodate the community they serve. That meant everything from higher ceilings to more interactive technology. The most difficult steps people may take in their lives are often into a visitation. 

Rich believes the right environment could make very difficult steps easier, and allow families to create a true celebration of life for their loved ones. Providing a lounge with more space and amenities for families to have a little break, rest up, enjoy a little nourishment, or even extend a conversation was also important. The lounge can accommodate seating for as many as 50 persons for a catered meal. This has been especially useful for Memorial Services. A beautiful sitting area is the first space upon entering the front door. The entire space has been designed and built around real experience, years of thoughts and conversations with the families we have the privilege to serve.

In 2019, Goodale Funeral Home was added to the Anderson Memorial Homes. Located in the picturesque, historic section of downtown Lockport, this beautiful and iconic building offers a charm and elegance. We have discreetly added modern technological advantages to the vintage space to making it accommodating for our families, while maintaining the beautiful art and mosaic stained glass accents people have appreciated for many decades. Toward the higher peak of Hamilton Ave. just above the Des Plaines River is a bucolic environment loved by the generations of locals who consider this historic area of Lockport a little piece of heaven.
