Our History

Our History

Windsor Healdsburg Mortuary was opened in 2004 by Carmine Romano as Romano’s Windsor Mortuary.  After owning and operating a funeral home in Massachusetts, Carmine made the decision to venture west and open a funeral home on the opposite coast.  After visiting many cities in California, it was Windsor’s Town Square that got ahold of his heart and he began to envision his new funeral home.  While originally planned for the site that is now McDonald’s, Carmine had the opportunity to purchase the building and lot where the funeral home sits today and convert it into his ideal mortuary.  In 2009, he was able to add a crematory on-site and changed the name to Windsor- Healdsburg Mortuary.  Carmine was well known in Windsor and Healdsburg for the comfort, care and understanding he offered to the families in his community.  He was a friendly, familiar face around town and when you were in need.  From the transfer into his care, arrangements, preparations, services, and final resting place, Carmine was always by the family’s side.  He believed in consistency, personal service, hard work, ensuring families were comfortable and the importance of community coming together to support grieving families.

In 2016, Carmine retired and while he considered Windsor home, returned to Massachusetts to be closer to his family.  Windsor-Healdsburg Mortuary was purchased and seamlessly transitioned into the funeral home you have come to know.  In 2020, the doors were closed for renovations and equipment upgrades and it took longer to open than originally anticipated.  In 2021, Windsor-Healdsburg Mortuary and Crematory reopened under new management and looks forward to serving the community in a meaningful way. 

What makes us different is that we are a privately and locally owned mortuary, have an on-site crematory which means your loved one never leaves our care or facility.  Our small, yet dedicated staff are available around the clock to personally serve you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We are a family run operation, who will care for your family as we would our own and take pride in being able to honor your loved one in any way you may choose.
