Mike and Lisa Carlsen are a first generation funeral home family. They have three daughters that have grown up with the funeral business. It has been a family effort to establish the reputation Carlsen Funeral Homes are known for. The Carlsen"s opened their first funeral home in 1995 at Ashley, North Dakota. With the encouragement and support of the Ashley community, it gave them the strength to expand.

In late 1995 they built a new second location in Eureka, South Dakota. The Eureka people have been equally as supportive, and the funeral home has become part of the community. Michael"s home town is a short drive away at Milbank, South Dakota. Michael has been a licensed Funeral Director since 1985. He has held a North Dakota Funeral Directors License since 1990.

Early in 1996, a past employer of Michael"s called and was ready to retire. This is when they purchased the Holte Funeral Home in Ellendale, ND. It was renamed Carlsen Funeral Home. In 2003 the time had come to complete the circle from Eureka to Ashley to Ellendale by opening a location in Aberdeen, South Dakota. This location not only offers a lovely chapel and viewing area, with wonderful grounds, it is home of their own crematory.

The first crematory planned in Northeast South Dakota and South Central North Dakota. They felt their cremation customers deserved better than they have been offered, by having a local outlet for cremation. In 2002, Devin decided to pursue a new career and attended Arapahoe Community College School of Mortuary Science in Littleton, Colorado.

He graduated in December of 2004 with an Associate of Applied Science in Funeral Service degree. Allie (Carlsen) Ryckman grew up in Ashley, North Dakota and Aberdeen, South Dakota, graduating from Roncalli High School in 2008. After attending University of Mary in Bismarck and Presentaton College in Aberdeen she graduated with a Bachelor of Science Radiologic Technology degree.

She worked for a short time as an X-Ray Technician at Sanford Health Aberdeen until joining the family business at Carlsen Funeral Home and Crematory full-time in 2014. Allie and her husband, Jordan Ryckman live near Aberdeen in Warner, SD along with their daughter, Andie.
