Since 1938, when Paul Ryan founded Ryan Funeral Home, we have guided families of all faiths through the process of grieving with neighborly concern and professional care.
As a family owned and operated funeral home we will treat your family with the compassion, dignity, and professionalism that you will not find anywhere else.
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.
Our Funeral Homes are open, and we are continuing to serve and care for all families with their end of life celebrations. We are adhering to strict safety protocols, in accordance with CDC regulations, to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to ensure the health and safety of our families and staff.
Public gatherings inside all our Funeral Homes have been limited to a maximum of 10 individuals, per Dane County and the City of Madison regulations.
We have an outdoor tent set up at the Sherman Avenue location, which allows families (up to 25 individuals) to safely gather while adhering to social distancing guidelines.
We are offering recorded live streaming of funeral services so that if you cannot attend the service in person you can join the service from your home.
We can be reached to answer any of your questions by phone or email and if any individual still wishes to meet with a funeral director, we ask that you first make an appointment. Please review the steps we are taking to ensure our families and employees remain safe, below.
