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.
