Mike & Yvonne Bryant grew up in Worland and dreamed of someday returning home. That dream came true as Bryant Funeral Home opened 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 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.
As we learn to live in a world without Mike Bryant, we have found that we are able to care for our families in a new way. We are here to hold your hand, have a shoulder to cry on and to truly understand what it feels like to love someone that was such a big part of your life. Yvonne and Kendra are continuing their education to be able to serve you to the best of their abilities. They both have been trained in a Grief recovery program and have learned how to help you move forward and be present in the moment. They also attend local and national funeral directors conferences to make sure they are able to offer you the very best.
Kendra was certified as a celebrant in 2019. She is able to perform celebrations of life. A unique funeral that is all about the person who passed away. She meets with family and close friends to hear stories about their life and then puts together a life sketch. All celebrant services come with a "take-away". A take-away is something the congregation can take home with them to remember the deceased. It's a way to always keep them in their hearts and to remind them to check in on the family.
