Welcome to Our Funeral Home

As a third generation, family owned and operated funeral home with four convenient locations, our experienced and caring staff will treat your family with the compassion, dignity and professionalism you deserve in your time of need. Since 1938, It has been our privilege to guide families of all faiths through the process of grieving with neighborly concern and professional care..

Through three generations of Ryans; Paul, Connie, and Roman, Ryan Funeral Home has grown to meet the needs of Dane and surrounding counties.

In 2000, the Ryan family acquired the Joyce Funeral Home in Verona, and on Odana Road in Madison, in order to assist our family’s needs on the growing west side of Madison. The Joyce-Ryan Funeral Home had been established in 1921 by Mr. Joyce, Winifred O’Rourke’s father. In 1954, William O’Rourke took the reins. William served the Madison and Verona areas for over 30 years before his passing.

In 2006, the Ryan family built a new funeral home in DeForest to better serve the families of Windsor and DeForest.

What Our Families Are Saying
TESTIMONIALS

When my family and I unexpectedly suffered the loss of my brother in 2014 we had the pleasure of working with Ryan Funeral Home. The staff and facilities are top notch and the staff was ready to assist us in any way they could from the moment we walked in the door. Given that this was an unexpected loss there had been no preplanning done. This was my first experience making arrangements for services for a loved one and our funeral director, Ross, guided us through planning every step of the way and made a very difficult situation as easy as possible. It was obvious that the staff at Ryan have received the best possible training. They treated the deceased with care and respect and they treated the family with the utmost respect and sensitivity while maintaining the highest level of professionalism. They were happy to honor all our requests and let us customize the service to fit our loved one, including creating a customized music playlist for the visitation. The facility was clean and inviting and catered to making visitors feel welcome and comfortable. The funeral director and chapel assistant were attentive and happy to help us in any way they could. I really can't say enough good things about Ryan Funeral Home and the staff they employ and I am so grateful for everything they have done for my deceased brother and surviving family during this difficult time. This is a group of truly special people!
