Connie and Scott Huffman, former owners of Ryan Funeral Home in Nevada, have recently opened a business, Ames Monument & Cremation Center, in Ames.

The Huffman’s said the former Ryan Funeral Home property will be listed for sale in the very near future.

The Huffmans are excited for the next phase of their lives. “We have seen a significant shift in the funeral industry for the past several years, with an emphasis on a simpler, more streamlined approach to death. That has led us to open our new business.”

Their business in Ames, located at 717 East Lincoln Way, will include an indoor display of cemetery monuments and markers, as well as space dedicated to cremation/funeral products and services.
