History

Bryant Funeral Home has been a family owned business since 1995. With the passing of Mike Bryant in 2017, Yvonne is carrying on his dream of providing a caring atmosphere during the hardest time of a family’s life. We pride ourselves on being compassionate, caring and here for a family whenever they might need us.

Mike & Yvonne Bryant grew up in Worland and dreamed of someday returning home. That dream came true as Bryant Funeral Home open its doors in October of 1995. Prior to coming home, Mike had worked in large funeral homes in Salt Lake City, UT and Laguna Hills, CA, and was privileged to find a job in Buffalo, WY where he worked not only as a funeral director, but ambulance attendant and with the coroner’s office for 9 years.

As we had dreamed of coming home, we also dreamed of an opportunity to serve our community and friends with loving compassion at a time when it is needed most. We hope that we have accomplished this goal thus far and hope to better our service to this community and surrounding areas. We greatly appreciate the ministers and church organizations for their undaunted service, the city crews, be they at city hall filing paperwork or at the cemetery for the “behind the scenes” work, and the police force for their willingness to escort funeral processions with such respect. These are the folks who help us to do our job professionally, yet with dignity.

We have enjoyed our involvement in various civic organizations and believe that our community is only as good as the people who live in it. Everyone has something to offer, most people want to be understood, accepted and befriended. It’s so important not to judge others only by what can be seen. Until you can walk a mile in their shoes, feel what they feel, see what they see, and hear what they hear, it’s vital to keep judgment inside. It has been our goal to meet the needs of the people we serve.—— We have been very pleased at the acceptance that we have received since returning home. We may not employ a lot of people, but we hope that the compassion we have for those we serve will be contagious and be passed on one person at a time. We look forward to many years of rendering service to the families of our area.

Since returning to Worland, Mike had been involved with the Chamber of Commerce, serving on the board (1998-2001) and as President (1999). He always gave support to the Chamber helping with community events. Mike had been an active member of Kiwanis for the past 10 years. He served on the board as well as assisting with many Kiwanis activities. He had served on the board for the Boys and Girls Club of Worland. He had been a volunteer on the Washakie County Ambulance from 1995 until March of 2004, when he became the director. He remained the director of the Ambulance, which has approximately 25 volunteers, until his passing in August 2017. Mike also served as a deputy coroner from 1995 until 2004. He spent many hours volunteering for the Special Olympics programs in Washakie County, especially during the ski season.

Mike had helped with the Worland Recreation Youth Sports as a coach for baseball and soccer. He was an active member of his church, serving as a youth advisor and the Sunday School Program.

Yvonne worked with Mike at the funeral home, but also helps with Special Olympics fund raisers and programs. She has worked as a parent advocate for the School District, assisting parents of children with special needs. While working for the school district, she helped bring the MEGA SKILLS parenting class to the community. She has advocated for people with special needs locally and at the state level. She also served for a short time on an advisory panel for the department of education.

Yvonne has chosen to carry on Mike’s dream of Bryant Funeral Home.
