We are located on a picturesque and historic setting at 501 State Street in Lemont. As you cross over the bridge into downtown Lemont, the first thing you'll see is the proud steeples and spires of our many faith communities. Gerharz Funeral Home celebrated its 150th Anniversary in 2012, moving to our current location in 1949. Urban C.
