Reputation and Location make a huge difference

If you ask Bob and Jim Sheehy what some of the most important factors are for a Funeral Home serving families, they’ll tell you it’s about “Reputation and Location”. Both of those are things you build.


Bob shares that Sheehy Chapels have always been located among and between very large parishes in the Chicago Archdiocese; St. Sabina and St. Leo in the early days, and generations later in St. Michael, St. Elizabeth Seton, St. Francis of Assisi, Our Lady of the Woods, St. Bernard, St. George, St. Julie Billiart, St. Stephens, Annunciation Byzantine Catholic Church St. Albert the Great, St. Bede the Venerable, St. Damien, in addition to Parkview Christian Church, Christ Lutheran and All Saints Lutheran Church. In fact, annually we have services going to over 70 different worship spaces. It’s a privilege to serve so many faith communities.


When Jim Sheehy discusses the southside of Chicago and southwest suburbs, he wistfully states, “this is truly a very unique place”. And it is. Native southsider Jim Segredo shares that these families have been part of a larger community for generations, and in every instance, the Sheehy Family stood ready to serve them and take care of their every need. Building that reputation over 3 generations is something Bob and Jim Sheehy consider to be the most important mission in the legacy of their family’s commitment to service. As Bob Sheehy puts it, “from 76th & Halsted, to 79th St. to 151st, one thing that has always remained consistent is that you’re still from the neighborhood”.


The neighborhood is and always has been home to us and the families we are blessed to serve.
