The most important virtue when serving a family is “Trust”

In the confusing and disconcerting moments after a loss of a loved one, there is no more important virtue than Trust. Decades ago, there was little thought where a loved one would receive services and to whom the care of that loved one would be turned over to. There was a family funeral home in the neighborhood where people instinctively went to. If anything, there may have been a choice based on faith affiliation. Most funeral homes were indeed operated by long standing families within the parish, or small geographical communities people lived in.

As families expanded and moved further away from the close-knit neighborhoods they’d spent generations in, the decision on who to call when you experienced a loss changed. There was less familiarity. Some of the families that operated funeral homes weren’t the same families, some became corporate owned entities. The guarantee that there was a close relationship between generations of your family and generations of the family operating the funeral home didn’t necessarily apply anymore. But in some cases, that still held true, and the trust built over decades was still in place.

Robert J. Sheehy & Sons Funeral Home has been a trustworthy choice for over a hundred years. Grandfathers, Fathers, Sons, and their entire families have dedicated their lives to providing the professional and compassionate service to families on the South and Southwest sides of Chicago their entire lives. For generations. Trust has been the virtue that has been ingrained in our family and something we consider absolutely precious to us as we continue to serve our families in our communities no matter how widespread those communities become.

We always want to be the Family that your Family Trusts. We think about that and work at it every day…and night. We’re here for you when you need us.

It’s important that people know that the Sheehy Family are committed to their families.

 

“My in-laws worked with the Sheehy Family. They knew what to expect, and their expectations were exceeded. They were well accommodated, and the treatment was excellent. When the services are complete, you realize it was first-class and excellent”, states Jim Segredo, a longtime resident of the Southwest Side of Chicago, St. Rita Alumni, and the President of Montini High School.

Generations of Sheehy’s have been taking care of servicing families on the south and southwest sides of Chicago and Suburbs. Community means a great deal to Bob & Jim Sheehy and to the entire Staff of the Robert J. Sheehy & Sons Funeral Home family. A familiar name among all the Faith Communities they serve, the standard of Professional and Compassionate Care and Service is a hallmark of the Sheehy Family.

Cremation is a choice with many options at Sheehy Funeral Home

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.
