History

Floyd A. Gorsline began the business as a combination furniture store and undertaking operation in Williamston in 1903. Insistence upon the highest standards of quality and professionalism was the hallmark of F.A. Gorsline and Sons.

With the merging of the Gorsline Runciman Company and the Ball Dunn Funeral Home of Mason in 1972, Ball Dunn’s prestigious tradition was enthusiastically embraced. Angus MacDonald founded the Mason firm in 1868 as a carpentry and undertaking business. Again, the artisan’s sensibilities and craftsman’s meticulous attention to quality formed an exceptional approach to funeral service.

Today, we continue to adhere to the values and principles of our fathers, grandfathers, and great-grandfathers. Though funeral service has experienced many changes and has evolved over the years, we have found these tenets to still be wonderfully suited to providing compassionate care to Lansing-area families.

Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"It was very easy to make arrangements, talk with Rachel and view the cost list. It was very nice that there was coffee available for our meeting. The only reason I said I would not refer a friend, is the cost. The baseline service fee was 4900$. The other items were almost 1000$ each. I was very happy with the work the hair dresser performed, and

the overall result of the event. Many people would not be able to afford the cost."

"The staff was very compassionate and caring and they took care of every detail so that we didn't have to worry about anything during this stressful time. They surprised us with a horse drawn carriage that took my 114 year old mother to the cemetery which made for a perfect ending for her incredible life."

"Have an idea how you would like the funeral to be conducted. Then relay that to the funeral home. Just talking about what the person would want, the staff will work with you without overselling. It is a very emotional time, Gorsline Runciman can handle it. This is the second time we have used them."
