Funeral Assistant

A veteran of the United States Air Force and a lifelong resident of Pontiac, Illinois, Bill’s passion for his country and his community are evidenced in all that he does. Bill is an 80 plus year resident of Pontiac and is a member of the Pontiac Planning Commission, a Pontiac Township Trustee and a volunteer at St. James Hospital. When he’s not serving his community in the aforementioned posts, Bill can be found gardening, fishing, and target shooting. Bill spent thirty four years as an insurance adjuster and joined Calvert & Martin Funeral Homes in 1994. His love for people is experienced by everyone he meets, especially those that he greets and assists at the funeral home, and he readily admits that “driving the limo” is one of his many favorite tasks. Bill and his wife Kathy (whom he has been married to for over 50 years) enjoy vacationing in San Diego, California and have two daughters, Diane and Nancy, and a black cat named Sooty.

   Shannon Sheehan-Eakle
Advanced Planning Director

Shannon grew up in St. Peter, Minnesota and attended Mankato State University, where she met and married her first husband Kevin. Kevin and Shannon had four "beautiful" children (Nichole, Connor, Kennedy & Meghan) and left their home state for Bloomington, Illinois in 1998. Sadly, Kevin passed away in 2004, and it was this tragic event that encouraged her career choice as an Advanced Planning Director. As Shannon put it, "I love helping people and putting a smile on someone's face when they need it, especially since I have been in those shoes. I want to be someone's rock and get them through a difficult time."

 

Today, Shannon is happily married to Dave Eakle and has added his four "beautiful" children (Mary, Christopher, Brian & Janie) to her expansive and loving family. Because "eight is not enough", Dave and Shannon have invited two more members into their home - Samson, a 120 lb. Bernese Mountain Dog and Louie, a 10 lb. Cockapoo.

 

When Shannon is not watching or following one of her children's sporting events, she can be found cooking, reading, and spending time with her close friends. A photography enthusiast and a fan of both golf and tennis, Shannon readily admits that she would be traveling the world with her family if she weren't serving individuals and families as Advanced Planning Director at Calvert & Martin Funeral Homes.
