A Message to Our Families Regarding COVID-19:

Please know we are open and available to serve you in your time of need.
Our family has been serving the community for 62 years and will continue to do so with the utmost compassion while trying to stay within government implemented guidelines. Funerals, visiting and Memorial Services will be limited to accommodate the requirements made by the Governor of NJ under Executive Order 107.

Due to CDC guidelines, visitation in the funeral home is limited to 25% of chapel capacity.  Masks are required and social distancing should be observed.

All cemeteries are operating but due to Executive Order 107 capacity is limited to 50 attendees.  The Catholic Archdiocese has resumed scheduling funeral masses and church capacity is limited to 50 attendees and masks are required. The Catholic Archdiocese has limited mausoleum services to 20 attendees and masks are required.

Many arrangement decisions can be made over the telephone or email to help limit your exposure. Video streaming and recording of services has been added to our chapels so family and friends can view services safely from the comfort of their home. We also encourage visitors of our website to post letters of condolence to comfort families at this difficult time. In the near future after restrictions are lifted, we will assist all families to plan Memorial Services to celebrate a life lived that can be attended by all relatives and friends.

What the families we serve say | TESTIMONIALS

I have been using Riotto Funeral Home for quite a few years. I manage a senior housing facility in Jersey City and have had the privilege of helping many of my residents with making pre funeral arrangements, as well as planning and handling numerous funerals at the time of their passing. Dealing with Riotto Funeral Home is by far outstanding. Richard Riotto and his staff are fantastic to work with. Kind, compassionate, accommodating, and ready to go above and beyond the call of duty to make an unpleasant event dignified, pleasing, and satisfying. The planning process is painless. Their focus on detail is tremendous. They work with you to see that the deceased’s wishes are met in every way possible, from dress preferences, flower choices, hymns, prayers and even nail polish colors and headstones, they cover it all. Their detail for the wake is extraordinary – the hair, nails, and skin tone are all so natural and professionally done. The deceased looks just like they are in a peaceful sleep. Whatever suffering or trauma they may have gone through prior is no longer evident. The loss for those remaining cannot be taken away, but seeing a person look so good and at peace at this time brings much added contentment. They are truly excellent in their profession. Compliments are always numerous from family and friends. The facility itself is modern, warm, cozy, and totally handicapped accessible. Parking is right outside the door and is plentiful.

Richard, I cannot thank you enough for all the assistance you have given me over the years and wish you continued success in your well-chosen profession. You deserve more then a five-star rating.

Most Sincerely
Ken Wessler
