SHEEHY FUNERAL HOME OFFERS A VARIETY OF OPTIONS FOR CREMATION

Cremation has become a more requested service in the past several years. Requests for cremation as a final disposition has increased in recent years. At Sheehy Funeral Home, we provide a full range of cremation services that include a direct cremation, or more traditional services that conclude with cremation. These services include, but are not limited to, a Visitation in our chapel, a Church Memorial Service which can be personalized with family photographs, video and memorabilia or even an outdoor Memorial Garden Service. In the case of a Memorial Service, we can provide Memorial Registry Books, Memorial Service folders, Flag Cases, Personal Floral Tributes, or a number of other options that can facilitate a dignified service. Among other faiths, the Roman Catholic Church has included in its Rite of Christian Burial, and approved the burial of cremation remains in consecrated ground.

Sheehy Funeral Home offers a large selection of urns and containers for families to choose from for burial or safe keeping. We also provide suitable containers if your loved one’s wishes include placing their remains in final resting places of their choosing. Cremation is among the options of services available to honor and celebrate the life of your loved one. For more details about the protocol and procedure for cremation contact Bill Kiley, or another of our Licensed Funeral Directors at 708-857-7878 or www.sheehyfh.com We’re here 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

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/

SHEEHY FUNERAL HOME “Where Technology Enhances Tradition”

Technology helps provide a warm welcome to families. It also makes saying “thank you” easier. 

Upon entering Sheehy Funeral Home, one of the first things you’ll see is the person you came to honor. Our directory display shows your loved one’s image on our electronic screen and also a directory to the chapel where the visitation is taking place. It will also show additional information for religious services, place of burial or other important information regarding the arrangements. So, the person you are coming to honor is usually the first image you will see upon entering. While there are certainly practical elements to the use of technology, the warmth of seeing your loved one is the greatest benefit to the use of technology. It’s the best way to say “Welcome” and “Thank you”.

We also have electronic kiosks in our chapels for guests to register their name and address in an electronic guestbook. It’s easy to use, but if there is any difficulty at all, a member of our attentive staff is standing by who can assist. This registry has taken away one of the most difficult problems for families after the services. All of the information is transferred and given to the family, along with pre-printed envelopes of your visitors. Families no longer struggle with reading hand-writing or having to look up additional information to thank their friends for coming and honoring their loved one. Hours of time are saved with this service, and so many families let us know how helpful it has been to them after the services have concluded. In a traditional service like ours, these uses of technology have been truly appreciated.

At Sheehy Funeral Home, we’re always looking for any way to make a difficult time a little easier.

We designed our funeral home to be like a home for the families we serve.

 

 

“It’s tough enough for people to be at a wake. It was important to have a warm place, with soft tones, a lot of natural light, comfortable and welcoming. That went into the planning for every part of the building” according to Bob Sheehy. Kathy Sheehy shared that vision and the talent to make it a reality. “People need a place to welcome their families and friends like it was their own home. That was the mindset we needed. People need to take a little break throughout the services, so it was very important to make sure that space provided the comfort to do that. Our coffee and break area provides families a place to put out refreshments and enjoy a lovely space to get away for brief periods of time” says Kathy who helped with the design and all of the accents at Sheehy’s.

 

When people come in to go to a visitation, make pre-planning arrangements, or have the difficult responsibility of making at-need funeral arrangements, it is vital to us at Sheehy Funeral Home that we make the environment here as warm and comforting as we possibly can.

 

For pre-arrangement questions, at-need services or any questions you may have, we’re available every day around the clock to serve your family at 708.857-7878 or www.sheehyfh.comwith our locations in Orland Park and Burbank.

Memorial Services are Part of Changing Family Traditions for Many.

Anyone can choose a Memorial Service and often times it makes the timing of the service more convenient for people who wish to celebrate the life of a loved one. The time constraints of today’s society make it more difficult for people to attend services who would really like to be there to comfort family members and friends. Memorial Services often make it easier to help friends and family plan for a service. Saturday afternoons have become a time many people choose to optimize the chance of people being able to attend. Having a Saturday Memorial Service means families are not forced into a burial the next day with cemeteries not doing burials on Sundays. It can ease some pressure for families.

If you would like to discuss a Memorial Service with Bill Kiley or another Funeral Director please (click here)

Consultations are a complimentary service at Sheehy Funeral Home and there is no obligation.

OUR GRANDFATHERS AND UNCLES WOULD BE PROUD

“How loyal people are to us is truly remarkable to us” states Jim Sheehy. Keeping the Sheehy name and reputation strong is important to Bob and Jim Sheehy. Knowing that when people need them, they are experiencing among the most difficult times of their lives and they call the Sheehy Family for help, is humbling. Over a century of service and into our third generation of our family serving families on the south and southwest sides of Chicago, we appreciate the loyalty to our service and commit to every family that we’ll do everything we can during their most difficult times.

MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, IT COMES DOWN TO TRUST

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.

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”.

Inside and outside, we wanted Sheehy Funeral Home to feel more like a home.

“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”.
