Morizzo Cemetery Monument & Memorial Dept

Cemetery memorials and gravestones come in a variety of shapes and colors.  Many cemeteries in the Chicago area only allow a flat granite marker to be placed on the grave of your loved one. Some companies use this as an excuse to only offer you a limited selection of 3-6 colors and 20 or so designs but don't be fooled! Even with the flush marker requirement, you still have lots of options. Stop in at one of our stores to view our large selection of granite colors and choose the one you like best. Then, browse through our 100+ page design catalog and pick the one that speaks to you. Alternatively, sit down with one of our artists and create a special, one-of-a-kind design for a more personal tribute. Either way, we guarantee you will be pleased with the finished product.  A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family's past.

There are generally two styles of raised headstones: bevels and slants.  A bevel marker has a 2” pitch, or bevel, from front to back, making it easier to find in the cemetery than a lawn level headstone.  A slant marker is usually 12 – 16 inches tall and can be ordered with or without a granite base.  Slant markers come in a variety of interesting shapes and finishes allowing for a more personal and creative memorial tribute. Families and individuals in Chicago, Illinois and the Chicago metropolitan area, or Chicagoland, have been buying gravestones for Chicago cemeteries from the Morizzo Family Funeral Home Chapels for many generations

Cemetery memorials and gravestones come in a variety of shapes and colors. There are many different sizes, shapes, and colors of granite to choose from. They can be flush to the ground (lawn level), slightly pitched (bevel), slanted (slant), or an upright monument which is usually a tablet on a base. We are the leading supplier of private family mausoleums in the Chicagoland area. Benches and special monuments for cremains are also increasingly popular ways of memorializing a loved one. When choosing a gravestone, grave marker or headstone, there are several important decisions that you will need to make. Please refer to our "Prices" or "Ordering" sections for more information.

About Morizzo Cemetery Monument and Memorial Department

For four generations, families have trusted Morizzo Cemetery Monument and Memorial Department to create timeless tributes, custom granite and bronze memorials that are as unique as the people they honor. We take the time to know each customer and listen to your loved one's life story. Then, we craft a headstone that meets your special needs and transcends the ordinary. That's why our cemetery gravestones have exceeded expectations for over 80 years.

There is something special to say about everyone but summarizing a life in just a few words can be very difficult. Often a familiar biblical verse or classical quotation is an ideal way to preserve your memories. An epitaph is a short text honoring a deceased person, which is often inscribed on their headstone. Some epitaphs are written by the deceased person before their passing, while other epitaphs are chosen by a family member responsible for the burial and monument design.  Granite is the only stone we use for our memorials due to its beauty, hardness and durability. A granite cemetery monument ensures you will enjoy its original beauty for decades to come.

A Consistent Place of Healing

In our modern society, people aren't given enough time to grieve their losses. The pressures of work, even the simple emotional need to ‘be busy,’ often bring the bereaved back into the ‘real’ world far too soon.

Also, many families are choosing to scatter the cremated remains of their loved one in a favorite place; the ocean, or even in the skies above. While that may seem fitting at the time, it means that you do not have a consistent place to connect with the memories of the person you loved so dearly.

Having such permanent place - in a cemetery, mausoleum, or cremation garden - that can be visited regularly by family and friends is an essential part of the time following a death. It becomes a focal point of memorialization, and gives everyone a special place to go to remember your loved one, or to commemorate important occasions. It can help to make a birthday or anniversary less painful.

A permanent place to reflect on your loved one becomes a way of connecting to a family's past. Visiting the resting place of grandparents or great-grandparents may provide children with an anchor to their personal history. It is a connection to the past, to love shared. It truly honors the relationship you still have – and will always have – with that person.  Selecting a Headstone, Marker, Monument or Memorial

Selecting a headstone, marker, monument or memorial; there are several things that need to be taken into consideration. First and foremost it is important to know what Cemetery Rules & Regulations that may affect your choice with this selection; some cemeteries will only allow headstones that are level with the ground, others will require the marker to be made of bronze and others may not allow companion markers on graves that are for a husband and wife.  The Directors at Morizzo Cemetery Monument and Memorial Department will assist you regarding this decision.

Some Considerations would are:

1 Material meaning granite, bronze or marble.

2 Size of the headstone, marker, monument or memorial

3 Granite color and vase option

4 Choosing a the design border

5 Personalization meaning artwork and lettering options
