    Historic Info: According to the company website, "In 1947, Bernice and John "Jack" McMurrough purchased the then Osborne Funeral Home at our current location. Osborne's promotional material denoting the company as "Furniture and Undertaking." Jack also operated an emergency ambulance service along with the funeral home, this was long before the village had its own ambulance service. In the 1950's they expanded the funeral home to include the current main chapel expanding the facility to over twice its size."(http://libertyvillefuneralhome.com/109/Our_Family.html) Historic photograph of house before alterations (from the early 1950s) at Illinois Digital Archives (in collection of the Libertyville-Mundelein Historical Society and Cook Memorial Public Library)-- http://www.idaillinois.org/cdm/singleitem/collection/cookmemo11/id/2054/rec/2 Historic photograph of House on page
