Hearth & Home was started in 1971 by Bob O'Donnell, who was a gas utility salesman, who needed to earn a living after Nicor Gas Company stopped selling gas products. After his son, Patrick, and daughter, Mary, graduated from college in 1978 and 1986 respectively, they expanded the business to a new and larger showroom with an attached warehouse.
Hearth & Home expanded in the 1990's with more family members joining the business. Pat's wife, Anne, joined the business as Office Manager in 1996. Mary's husband, Ed Schappert, joined the business as Sales Manager in 1999, after many years in the advertising industry.The business was in capable hands, so Bob and his wife Marilyn, were able to retire after working hard for so many years.
Bob retired in the late 90's and passed away in 2007, before seeing the 3rd generation working in the business on a full-time basis. Pat and Anne's son, Ryan, graduated from college in 2007. He spent 4 years in the banking industry, before coming back into the business where he had worked summers and many weekends, from ages 12-21.
In 2014, Pat and Anne's youngest daughter, Kate, a full-time neo-natel nurse, began helping out part-time, managing the website and social media. Together, they have grown the family business to where it is today.
