Welcome to Fred C. Dames Funeral Homes
COVID-19 VIRUS PROTOCOLS
Our funeral home has adopted the following safety precautions during the infectious pandemic of COVID- 19, also known as the Corona Virus.
Phase five of the State of Illinois Restored reopening plan will go into effect June 11, 2021.
Testing, tracing and treatment are widely available throughout the state. Either a vaccine is developed to prevent additional spread of COVID-19, a treatment option is readily available that ensures health care capacity is no longer a concern, or there are no new cases over a sustained period. All sectors of the economy reopen with new health and hygiene practices permanently in place. Large gatherings of all sizes can resume. Public health experts focus on lessons learned and building out the public health infrastructure needed to meet and overcome future challenges. Heath care equity is made a priority to improve health outcomes and ensure vulnerable communities receive the quality care they deserve.

Why Fred C. Dames At A Time Of Loss?
We are here for you and have been for five generations since 1854. That may seem like a simple and obvious statement, but it is all too uncommon. We are not like other funeral providers. Not in philosophy, not in practice.
We are dedicated to the belief that the process of grief is not a business proposition but rather an emotional, human passage to be treated with dignity and conscience. That is our sole motivation.
We are not like others, nor do we strive to be. We promise to take you through this difficult time with care, with sensitivity, and with thoughtfulness. We do not hurry decisions. We do not feel there is a relationship between what is spent and what has been lost. There is only what is right for you and your family.
We encourage you to decide what your own approach and values dictate, what makes you comfortable, what your loved one would have wanted, and to follow that guidance.
