Cremation has become more common as a final disposition as time goes on. Often families are honoring the wishes of their loved ones who have made this choice. At Sheehy Funeral Home, we are dedicated to offering a full range of options to families with Cremation as the final disposition. Those options include, but are not limited to Direct Cremation, limited services or full traditional services. Many families choose a visitation in our chapel with their loved one present, either within a casket, or a Cremation Urn with a photograph of your loved one. These services can be personalized according to the wishes of the family. We’ve also provided Memorial Services both indoor and outdoor in a Memorial Garden. In the case of a Memorial Service, we can provide Memorial Registry Books, Service Folders, Flag Cases, Personal Floral Tributes, or any theme or motif that facilitate a dignified service for your loved one.
We will coordinate with Faith Directors in parishes and congregations for the most appropriate services. In the Roman Catholic Church, within its Rite of Christian Burial, the burial of cremation remains in consecrated grounds has been approved. Sheehy Funeral Home offers a full selection of urns and containers for burial, entombment, or safe keeping. “Ultimately, we want to give families all of the options available to them. We can pre-plan or make funeral arrangements at-need. We’re here to help families celebrate the life of their loved one in the manner they desire”, says Bill Kiley, a long time funeral director at Sheehy Funeral Home. Whatever a family needs or desires; we’ll provide.
For details about Cremation, Pre-Planning, At-Need arrangements, or any questions at all, contact Bill Kiley or any of our Licensed and Professional Staff at 708-857-7878 or www.sheehyfh.com We’re here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

“It’s truly remarkable to us how loyal families have been to our family”, is how Jim Sheehy describes the feeling. Along with his brother Bob, they are the “sons” in Robert J. Sheehy & Sons Funeral Home, with locations in Orland Park and Burbank. The Sheehy name and services is measured not in years or decades, but a century. For 3 generations, the family has been providing funeral services on the south, and southwest side and suburbs of Chicago. So many of the families are families that have been served by Jim and Bob’s grandfather, father and uncles, and now it’s their honor to serve.
“Our name and reputation is important to us because of the generations who served our community before us. To know that when people are experiencing their most difficult and trying times in life, they are choosing us to help them is a very humbling feeling and a great honor for us”, states Jim Sheehy. He adds, “the southwest side of Chicago is among the most unique places there is. The closeness of families and the loyalty among them is incredibly special”.
For any information on At-Need Services, Pre-Need Services or any questions you might have, call us anytime of day or evening. We’re here. Call 708.857-7878 or visit www.sheehyfh.com/

In the past, the determining factor in choosing a funeral home had more to do with location and being close to the neighborhood. What has transcended that now that families are more spread out, is a sense of trust. Knowing that a family is managing the care of your loved one and will be with you every step of the way is important to families. What hasn’t changed and never will, is that these services are the last time a family will have an opportunity to honor the life of their loved one and offer extended family and friends the opportunity to offer comfort, share precious experiences and say farewell as a community to a very loved member of their family.
Connecting to a Funeral Home that’s been there for generations with a family maintaining long relationships over time is important to people. With over 100 years in business, the Sheehy Family has provided funeral services to as many as five generations of families who have chosen them at their time of need or for prearrangements. As Bob Sheehy says, “it really comes down to trust.” It’s a privilege to have the trust of the families who choose Robert Sheehy & Sons.

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.
