From 1913 to today…we still do it the “Sheehy Way”

We continue to Serve Chicago and the Southwest Side for over a Century

The Sheehy Family has been in the Funeral Service industry since 1913. This is our 3rd Generation of Family Owned & Operated commitment to the many generations of families we’ve been privileged to serve over that long span of time. The feeling we get from families who are trusting us to serve them generation after generation is very humbling to our family. We’ve moved locations over the years without ever leaving the parishes and neighborhoods where our families and friends called home. Each year we visit nearly 70 different faith and parish communities in fulfilling the final wishes of the families we serve. The history of each and every one of these communities fill us with pride and gracious images as we continue to visit them and lay to rest members of families who built these communities and parishes and helped them continue their missions in the great neighborhoods of the Southwest Side and Southwest Suburbs. To have the “Sheehy” name associated with these places within this large geographical swath of Chicagoland is a remarkable feeling for our family.

With our chapels now in Burbank and Orland Park, Illinois, Bob and Jim Sheehy, sons of Robert J. Sheehy maintain the trust and responsibility of carrying on the premium service that has defined our father, uncles, and grandfather.  We know they’re all watching, and expecting this generation to meet and exceed the family’s commitment to the current generations of families we serve. And we’re committed to doing just that. If you need us, we’re here. And honored to continue serving your family.

When the need for our services arise, we promise to do everything possible to make sure that your primary responsibility is comforting your family and friends. We’ll take care of all the details that need attention. Feel free to contact us at any time of day or night, any day of the year, should any question or need arise. We’re available for a consultation on at need or pre-planning of funeral services. There is no cost or no obligation with our consultations. Simply, an opportunity to help you in any way we can.

For any questions on pre-planning or at-need services, please call 708-857-7878 or visit
