Remember... Every life is significant. Every life has a story to be told. Let us help tell your story.

As a funeral director and caregiver, walking along side people during their grief journey, I can tell you firsthand, without a doubt, that the grieving process is carried out better when there is a funeral ceremony or at the very least a time for family and friends to gather.  It is important to recognize that funerals are for the living…us left behind, that may need that form of closure. Let us never forget the preciousness of a life lived.  In our hectic world today it is easy to get caught up in it.  Let us slow down, grieve and celebrate....it is the ONLY way to healing. We are talking about a lifetime of love, laughter, tears, friendships and memories. A funeral is NOT a day in a lifetime, it is a LIFETIME in a day!!

Welcome to Otto Redanz Funeral Home, where above all, you and your loved one are our main 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. If you are here because you have experienced a death, know that when you call upon us, we are here to give you the guidance, comfort, compassion and professionalism you and your loved one deserves. Yes we are a business, but more over a MINISTRY. 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 promise to you. I encourage you to give me a call if I can answer any of your questions or concerns. May the God who loves you, bless you and console you always,

Michael R. Goodlander~ Owner and Caregiver

Owner ~ Licensed Funeral Director ~ Caregiver

I would recommend Otto Rendanz Funeral Home to everyone. Laura and Michael Goodlander are wonderful caring people who make the funeral process manageable. They took care of my mother's funeral in 2015, my sister's in 2017 and my husband's in 2019. I have entrusted them to take care of three of the most important people in my life and they have always delivered. On a scale of 1-10, they are a 10.
