History

Located in Pierre Part, Ourso Funeral home has hosted cremation services for families in Assumption Parish and other Louisiana communities for more than 70 years. We are proud of the long-lasting relationships we create with each family we serve.

Establishment and growth

In 1939, Ourso Funeral Home was founded by Sidney Ourso Sr. in Donaldsonville, Louisiana, as a partnership with Milburn Landry. At that time, it was known as Landry-Ourso Funeral Home. After the death of Landry, the partnership dissolved, and our funeral home became Ourso Funeral Home Inc. The existing funeral home at 134 Houmas Street in Donaldsonville was purchased in late 1940.

Ourso Funeral Home services later expanded with the addition of the Gonzales location, as well as chapels in White Castle and Pierre Part. We remain dedicated to quality service and growing to meet the needs of families in Louisiana.

"All I had to do is make 1 call to Jacie Rivere Theriot and our concerns and worries were minimal to none. Jacie is EXCEPTIONAL at funeral directing, arranging and most of all most professional. Had there been a rating that said to rate her professionalism and kindness as infinity, I would have selected it. I cannot say enough as to how well mannered and sympathetic Jacie was to my family. She is absolutely definitely a huge asset to Ourso Funeral Home."

"'The entire staff went above and beyond. They were extremely professional, compassionate and worked with our family in a time of need. Not only were they responsive to our particular financial situation and aided us in that endeavor but they also made multiple follow up calls to make sure we were satisfied with their services and to keep us up to date in every step of the process. Candace and Holly were especially helpful. I received multiple follow-up calls from both of them and they were always very caring and professional. On behalf of my entire family I just want to say thank you very much to Candace, Holly and the funeral director who went out of her way to work with us due to our financial struggles.'"
