𝑾e refer to the kind notes we receive as “Roses”. In the midst of this very difficult time of the Covid Virus, where it’s a daily challenge to comfort and assist families in the manner that they truly deserve, we are trying our best to to do so.
And so, this Rose, from Maria Michelon, thanking us for taking care of her father Vito Mannino, means a great deal to us. We’re humbled. We’re honored. Thank you Maria, it was absolutely our privilege to serve your father and your family.
Robert J. Sheehy & Sons Funeral Home.

The timing of a loved ones passing is never easy. There are times when the complicating factors are even greater with extended family out of town, holidays, school schedules, or any variety of reasons that make it more difficult for people to attend services and offer families the comfort they truly want to be able to share. Robert Sheehy & Sons Funeral Director Bill Kiley explains how Memorial Services have grown in frequency to allow families more time to plan the service and maximize the ability for people to attend and honor the life of their loved ones.
Often, it’s been Saturday afternoon Memorial Services since there isn’t the added pressure of a cemetery schedule the next day to be concerned with or locked into. It fits into many more schedules and relieves pressure on families rushing to meet timelines. As Bill Kiley states, “Any way we can ease the pressure and offer comfort to families at a time of loss, it’s our responsibility to do so, and we take it very seriously. We will accommodate their wants and needs and we will absolutely make sure they know this kind of service is available to them.”

Starting in St. Sabina and St. Leo Parishes near 76th and Halsted and now a century later to being located amid five large parishes in Orland Park, Sheehy Funeral Home has been a convenient location for families on the south and southwest side of Chicago and Suburbs for years. Our location in Burbank continues to serve communities and parishes in the near south suburbs. Something that hasn’t changed is how many families have carried their neighborhoods and the neighborhood feeling with them no matter where they’ve settled along the way. It’s still the southwest side of Chicago and as Jim Sheehy tells it “it’s truly a very unique place”. It’s also home to our families.

“When we built our new funeral home in Orland Park, it gave us an opportunity to think a different way about how funeral services could be more comfortable for families and friends who visit during difficult times” says Kathy Sheehy, who created the new décor for the Orland Park funeral home. From softer colors, to large windows providing sunlight, to higher ceilings, to more comfortable furniture, to a large octagonal coffee room with a charming and cheerful patio feel, no detail was overlooked in creating a space that offered comfort. “The sitting areas outside of the visitation area itself are very important to our overall space” according to Bob Sheehy. Adding “Even when people come for Preplanning funeral arrangements, I can see how important these oases of comfort are to them. It’s important to us that people feel that while they’re here, this is their home”.
