Remember... A Funeral is not a Day in a Lifetime, but a Lifetime in a Day. Let us help share your story. 


Due to COVID-19

Non-essential gatherings of any kind will be banned beginning on Sunday, March 22nd at 8:00 pm. The governor will allow immediate family to gather ONLY. Social distancing will be practiced. This is a trying time for everyone, especially for those in the midst of a loss of a loved one. Know that Laura and I are with you, we are here and we will walk you through this difficult journey together. What makes emotions and anxiety even more heightened is no one can control when someone will pass away and during this time there may be restrictions that may impose on your wishes for a funeral you would want to have for your loved one. Contact us for other service options to properly memorialize your loved one. Technology allows us alternate options. Know our prayers are with you all. We ask that you would also keep us in prayer. We may feel we are being tested or even attacked on all sides and have no control, but know this.....Jesus is greater than COVOID-19 


My name is Michael R. Goodlander. I am the owner and caregiver of Otto Redanz Funeral Home. Welcome to our website. We take great pride in the way we serve our families. It has been stated by clergy and the community that we serve in that our personal, “family feel,” stands out above all along with our unique guidance, professionalism and service that only we can provide. When I am called and entrusted to walk with you on your grief journey, YOU are my ONLY focus. “Your family is guided every step of the way in honoring the life and legacy of the person who has passed on before us....know I am here for you and that when you call upon me, I am here to give you the guidance, comfort, compassion and professionalism you and your loved one deserves. I am here to serve and am honored when you entrust me to do so. My true concern is YOU, YOUR family, YOUR WELL-BEING, YOUR journey of grief and YOUR healing......whatever it takes. This is my sincere promise to you....May the God who loves you, bless you and console you always.” 

My wife, Laura and I would love to meet you, give you an opportunity to meet us, see our spacious, meticulous groomed and “home-like feel” facility, discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have. When you are in the midst of a loss, no matter how prepared you think you are or if the death is unexpected, your world is “turned upside down.” You need a guide and a friend to walk with you through your brokenness. “You will be given the quality, attention and service that your family needs all within your budget......guaranteed!!"

After my husband died three years ago, I realized I had no idea what he wanted for his funeral. We had a lovely ceremony, but I couldn’t help but wonder if it was what he would have wanted. So, a year or so after his death, I sat down to plan my own funeral. Now, it’s all in writing and I’ve taken steps to make sure the costs of my funeral and burial will be covered so my family won’t be burdened. I am so glad I sat down with Mike and he explained everything to me so I could understand it. He literally walked me through it, over a cup of coffee. So comfortable.
