Thank you for visiting Maher's website where under one roof, we offer full range funeral and legal services as a one stop experience, to include notarial services and pastoral care if needed.
That's right - we offer notary services on site by appointment, can help you get peace of mind with a will, power of attorney, trust, and related planning documents, and assist you with making the decisions about your own funeral, or that of a beloved family member or friend, as you should.
Our family's involvement in the funeral business dates back to the 1980s. Our mother, Marian R. Maher (pictured at right), was in the funeral business since 1980. Marian started as an organist and pianist to lend inspiring music to those in bereavement at funeral homes throughout the south side while raising her young family in Mount Greenwood. While playing services for local funeral homes, Marian eventually became the administrator of a local funeral home, which started Maher's interest in combining the funeral and legal practices.
Following her lead, her husband Norman Maher (pictured at right) retired from his career in trucking and sales and served as a livery driver until a few years before his passing.
Also by Marian's example, Maher's bought and renovated the old Tinley Park Public Library into its current operation. The family-owned and veteran-operated business is led by US Army Lieutenant Colonel and veteran of Afghanistan and other deployments, attorney John N. Maher. Maher's continues to serve families throughout the southland, to include hosting the Church of the Southland in the lower level of the facility and we are located across the street from the venerable Olympic Star restaurant.

I truly am so grateful with Maher funeral home. Eric, truly from the very start took the time to explain everything through our heartache. Every single detail and care done to help my family with my father service and cremation. I want to thank everyone at Maher for every single moment of help to plan my father service through such a difficult time. Thank you Eric and Josh for all kind words and support. My family was very grateful and will recommend always.
