At Sheehy Funeral Home, Cremation comes with many options

Cremation has become more common in the last several years. As Families come to us with that decision already made, often by the deceased person, they aren’t always sure what other options are available. And there are many. At Sheehy Funeral Home, we remain committed to offering every possible option we can to families when it comes to final arrangements for their loved ones.

Funeral Director & Manager Bill Kiley explains that the range of services includes everything from a Direct Cremation all the way up to a full service arrangements including burial or inurnment into a mausoleum. “Families are often not aware of all of the different options available to them with Cremation, even including a Memorial Service at a later date to make it easier for people to attend”, according to Bill. The visitation services have evolved with beautiful flower arrangements to host urns. These visitations can include most of what traditional services include. Memorial Services can be indoors or outdoors in a Memorial Garden. For Veterans, there is dedicated space at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery for inurnment of remains with full military honors. All of our services can be personalized according to the wishes of families with photographs, video displays, registry books, service folders, flag cases, personal floral tributes or other themes and motifs providing dignified services for your loved one.

Our mission is to provide the services you wish. We coordinate closely with Liturgical Directors and Bereavement Directors in all of our Faith Communities.  In the Roman Catholic Church, within its Rite of Christian Burial, the burial of cremation remains in consecrated grounds has been approved. We have a full selection of urns. “We are here to ensure families can celebrate the life of their loved ones in the manner they’ve chosen with the full range of options available to them”, reaffirms Bill Kiley.
