Maher Funeral Home

Tinley Park

After working for other firms for a number of years, Phillip Maher decided last year that the time was right to open his own facility. Hoping to find an existing structure, after a several month search, the perfect building was found—the former Tinley Park Library in Tinley Park, Illinois. The building, which was constructed in 1973, served as the area’s library until 2004. The 12,252 square foot building features a new stone entry wall, a beautiful, spacious lobby with fireplace and build-in bookcases for a more homey touch, a large chapel that can be divided for multiple visitations, two family lounges, an efficiency apartment with bedroom and kitchenette. Although the building has two levels, renovation work was focused on the main level where the funeral home is located.
