Founding years

Ourso Funeral Home was founded by Sidney Ourso Sr. in 1939 in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, as a partnership with Milburn Landry. The business was originally known as Landry-Ourso Funeral Home. Following the death of Milburn, the partnership dissolved and the funeral home became Ourso Funeral Home, Inc. Our current location at 134 Houmas Street in Donaldsonville was established in late 1940.


Our funeral home later expanded with the addition of our Gonzales location, as well as chapel locations in White Castle and Pierre Part, Louisiana.

"Being someone who was raised in Donaldsonville but living out of state having Ourso Funeral Home there to handle and look into arrangements, etc for me was priceless. My family cannot say thank you enough for all they did in taking care of arrangements to making sure my mother was respected and taken care of while providing her with the final services she wished for."

"The urn I pick out did not come in time but they came me one to use till they got mine in. It was nice just like the one I had picked out. They were sympathetic to the idea that it did not come in but I had family coming in from out of town."
