History

Damar-Kaminski Funeral Home & Crematorium has been serving Justice area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

Mark & Laura Kaminski founded Damar-Kaminski Funeral Home in the Justice area in 1998. It stared with the simple desire to offer families a more personalized family focused service. They started with the mission of making every family feel like their own. Personalized compassionate service has and will remain their focus. Never salesmanship or grandstanding they serve with humility and grace to honor the vocation they have chosen. As they grew and offered families location and service options it has always been with the desire to meet family needs and to continue to make the grieving process as easy and as comforting as possible. As they grow the commitment to honor these basic tenants of family focus service and uncompromising value are always at the heart of every decision.

In 2007 the Kaminski family expanded to include the Sheldon-Goglin Funeral Home in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood of Chicago. It was renamed Sheldon-Goglin-Kaminski Funeral Home. This funeral home is rich in history as it was founded in 1898. We are proud to continue the legacy and history of one of Chicago’s oldest & finest funeral homes. This facility allows families the option to have services where it is most convenient.

That year they also saw a need from families to provide a clearer more transparent cremation service process. They added their crematorium in Justice with the purpose of giving families peace of mind in knowing that their loved one was under their care at all time. A clear transparent facility that remains a standard of excellence and service.

As they have built trust and confidence within the families they serve and the communities they support it was necessary to offer more chapel space. In 2013 they expanded the Justice location with updating and remodeling. That year they also responded to families asking if they could help with the cremation of their pets. They added a facility to their Justice location that is solely dedicated to servicing pets. Cherished Pets Remembered pet crematorium offered them the ability to serve every member of the family. They listened to the needs of their families when they said they wanted transparency and assurance that the ashes received are those of their pet and only their pet. They decided to only offer private pet cremation and serve only the pet owner.

The Kaminski Family is grateful to see their vision move onto the next generation and continue to build on their legacy of family focused service and value. They truly are and will be a family owned and operated funeral home.
