LeNette Van Haverbeke, Chief Financial Officer
Email: lenette@mtolivetmemorialpark.com
Office Phone: 847-872-5476

LeNette joined Mt. Olivet full time in 2004.  When asked how long she has worked here, she usually replies "since I was 7 years old" which is when her parents purchased the cemetery.  In the early years, she filed for her mom and helped around the office where allowed.  She worked as a groundsworker many summers during high school and college.  Currently, she is in charge of all sales, fiscal responsibilities, and business management for the entire cemetery and crematory operation.  

LeNette is a certified Crematory Operator and a licensed Cemetery Manager.  She serves on the board of directors of ICFHA (Illinois Cemetery and Funeral Home Association), Kiwanis Club of Zion Benton, Daughters of the American Revolution Little Fort Chapter, Zion Dolphins Swim Team and the Lake County's Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce & Visitor's Bureau.  

Lew Fischer, Chief Operations Officer

Office Phone: 847-872-5476

Lew started working full time with Mt. Olivet in 1995 after he graduated from high school.  His father always started his kids at the "bottom" and let them work their way up, so Lew started as a groundsworker.  

In 1998, he took over as head of grounds.  Today, he oversees two employees and all of our operations for both the cemetery grounds and the crematory.

Lew is a licensed Cemetery Manager and a certified Crematory Operator.

Prearrangement

Dying is one of the few events in life that's certain to occur, yet one we rarely plan for. Should we spend more time preparing for a two week vacation than we do our last days on Earth?
