Sheehy Funeral Home Celebrates a Century of Service

The Southwest Suburban publication The Reporter published a very nice article about our family’s commitment to serving our communities. Most important to us is the article highlighting that our commitment today is the same as it has been for 3 generations of the Sheehy Family and a hundred years of continuous service to the families we have been privileged to serve. We thank every family who has entrusted us with caring for them and their loved ones during their time of need. We’re truly honored to be chosen to assist them. With 84 years of combined experience with our current staff of directors, we’ll continue to be there for families when they need us.
