Sheehy Funeral Home took care of everything.

In the case of Pat Byrne, when he experienced a terrible loss, he was already a very close friend of Bob Sheehy. It’s only with reflection over some years that Pat wondered how Bob was able to handle the professional elements of arranging and directing funeral services and yet be the emotionally supportive dear friend to him at the very same time. The Sheehy Family has been taking care of family, and friends for 3 generations and over 100 years. After that much time, so many of the families you serve are friends and neighbors and people we know and love. When it’s such a close friend, it reminds you of the impact of losing a treasured loved one. That’s a feeling we do our best to remember with every family we make arrangements for. It’s also a great reminder of what a privilege it is to be in the position to provide the service we provide.

We’re here 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year to help families in Orland Park and in Burbank. For any questions about our Services, Memorials, Cremation,Pre-Planning or At-Need, Contact us at 708.857.7878

What Families look for more than anything is Trust.

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.

Generations of the Sheehy Family serving generations of your family.

“I’ve been going to Sheehy’s since I was a young child” says Willie Winters, a lifelong Southside resident who grew up in a family that always paid their respects to the families in the tight knit communities of Chicago’s Southwest side and close in suburbs, like Beverly, Mt. Greenwood, Scottsdale, Burbank, Oak Lawn and Evergreen Park. It would be easy to go on and even start mentioning all the Parishes that helped keep those families so close. What Willy remembers then and continues to see now, is the legacy of service for 3 Generations of the Sheehy Family. Willy remembers Robert Sheehy Sr. and is a contemporary of Bob and Jim Sheehy now. “What has remained constant is the ‘Air of Dignity’ among the entire family. It continues to today”. While so many things have changed about funeral homes, like Pre-planning, Cremation, Memorial Services, etc., it remains vitally important to the Sheehy Family that the continued professional service and that “air of dignity” never change. Generations of the Sheehy Family have been assisting generations of Chicago area families in Burbank and Orland Park for over a century. They’re there when you need them, day or night, every day of the year.

We’ve Spent Over a Century Building Trust

 

“More often than not, it really comes down to trust”. Three generations of Sheehy’s have built that trust for more than 100 years. The Sheehy Family has been serving fourth and fifth generations of families over that time. There was a time over many of those years where families made choices almost strictly on location; the convenience to their neighborhood, church and parish. As the world has become bigger and more spread out, those factors have changed. Families want to turn to trust, professionalism and experience.

Robert J. Sheehy & Sons has never lost sight of the most important reasons people choose a final place to celebrate the life of their loved one, to receive family and friends and to bid farewell to a person who has meant so much to so many. Families trust Bob and Jim Sheehy and the entire professional staff to manage all the details, big or small, so they can focus only on the most important elements of the visitation and funeral services. As customs and traditions change and evolve, the Sheehy Family is there to provide the services the family desires. They can accommodate requests from Pre-planning, to Traditional Services, to Cremation and Memorial Services. They are there to serve families and earn that trust with every service. They’ve been doing so for a long time.

For at-need services, pre-planning services, cremation, memorials, or any questions you may have, we would be honored to speak with you any time of day or night. Our funeral homes are located in Orland Park and Burbank. Contact us at 708-857-7878 or http://www.sheehyfh.com/

Letters of Compassion, Care and Gratitude

When Sheehy Funeral Home receives “thank you” notes, we place them in a file labeled “Roses”. Because to us, that’s what they are; a beautiful reminder that a family appreciated our service to them in a very difficult time for them. When we consider that they took the time to sit down and write to us, it’s especially encouraging. Of course, it makes us feel good that we have helped comfort a family beyond their expectations. That’s something we strive for with every family we care for. We save all of these notes in our Roses file, and we refer back to them frequently. Every member of our staff sees every Rose we receive. It’s a reminder to all of us just how important it is to make sure we think of everything and see to it every detail is taken care of.

 

To the families who send these beautiful notes, the Sheehy Family thanks you. It’s a privilege to provide services to you, in many cases for several generations. The common words we see in all of these notes are compassion, care and gratitude directed toward our service. We feel the same way about the families we serve. It’s not necessary to send a note. At the same time, we’ll add one more word to those special words that we see in these special notes; Grateful. We are grateful for being the family you trust with your loved one.

 

For at-need services, pre-planning services or any questions you may have, we would be honored to speak with you any time of day or night. Our funeral homes are located in Orland Park and Burbank. Contact us at 708-857-7878 or http://www.sheehyfh.com/

The Sheehy Reputation in Our Communities

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.

THERE’S AN AIR OF DIGNITY ABOUT SHEEHY FUNERAL HOME

[youtube+https://youtu.be/dCRhOMCK564]

Willie Winters is a long time Southsider, a neighborhood guy. He’s been attending wakes his entire life, starting with his grandfather decades ago. “With the Sheehy’s there was an air of dignity about the place; about Mr. (Robert Sr.) Sheehy and now that same air with Bob and Jim” Sheehy, relates Willie, adding “It’s personal to me”.  It’s personal to everyone who is in need of service from a funeral home. It’s personal to us. Whatever we can do to bring you comfort during and even after a loss, we’re here for you.

THIS IS A FAMILY… THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE WE WOULD GO

When a death occurs, where would you turn first? To family, of course. When Pat Byrne’s family experienced a loss, they knew they could count on the Sheehy’s. They’re family to us. We’ve had a relationship for a long time. “Their service and professionalism is superior”, according to Pat. So much so, that he states clearly “There is no other place we would go”.

My Friend and My Funeral Director at the Same Time

When Pat Byrne needed the services of his friend Bob Sheehy, he needed his friendship at the time of tragic loss just as much. “I don’t know how he did it” recalled Pat, adding “as a professional he left no stone unturned, while at the very same time providing me comfort at the time of a terrible loss”. He was the first guy to come to Pat’s need as a friend and professional. As Pat thinks back, he doesn’t know how Bob was able to be such a great friend and great professional at the same time. The truth may be that there is no boundary between friendship and service when the families you serve are not just “like family”. They are “family”.

We celebrate “a Century of Service” attending to Funeral Arrangements and Cremation Services

For 3 generations the Sheehy Family has been there for families on Chicago’s southside and south suburbs. With 2 locations to serve families in Burbank and Orland Park, we continue to provide services in your time of need. We call it the “Sheehy Way”. We developed a manner of service since 1913 that includes seeing to every need and concern a family has in preparing arrangements for their loved one. In celebrating the life of a loved one, families need to know we will handle every detail, big or small, so they are free to focus on meeting with family and friends who come to honor their loved one and comfort their family. There are literally hundreds of things that need to be addressed. Our mission is to address each and every concern and requirement from the beginning to the conclusion of the services a family chooses. We are here for Cremation services as well as pre-arrangement planning as well. In a hundred years you learn a lot about how to best serve a family in their greatest time of need. The Sheehy Way really means the most honorable and professional way we can possibly provide for you.

Sheehy Funeral Home Celebrates a Century of Service

The Southwest Suburban publication The Reporter published a very nice article about our family’s commitment to serving our communities.

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.
