COVID-19 Update

The Zachrich Family Funeral Home prioritizes the health and well-being of our associates and guests. We understand this is a fluid situation and are monitoring and evaluating developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19). If you have any questions, please call 419 264 0600.

We are very proud our funeral home is family owned and operated.

Welcome to the Zachrich Funeral Home and Cremation Services. Just like the funeral home, we designed our website with you in mind. We have an array of features to assist with your needs and it is our hope that this site is useful and informative.

At our funeral home we understand the value of personal service. A funeral is a time for family and friends to reflect on a life that has been lived and honor the memory of that life.

Our services provide a personalized approach to making a farewell meaningful. We understand how difficult it is during a time of grief. We are sensitive to your family's decisions. We go above and beyond the call of duty to accomplish your wishes in a very caring and professional way. Within our services, we hope to provide help, hope and healing.  

What the Families We Serve Say...

Ryan Zachrich is the best, he is kind & patient, to our family & visitor's. He goes out of his way to be of service. Highly recommend this funeral home. It's not like the cold funeral homes in Defiance, Ohio. Wish Zachrich's would start one in Defiance.
