Gorsline Runciman Funeral Home in East Lansing, Michigan has a long tradition of providing funeral and cremation services. For many years, the name Gorsline Runciman has been considered synonymous with excellence and integrity in the Lansing area. Our funeral home reputation is built upon 4 generations of family commitment to the communities we serve.
Foundation of service
This commitment is deeply rooted in the work ethic of our founders. Floyd A. Gorsline began the business as a combination furniture store and undertaking operation at our Williamston location in 1903. Insistence upon the highest standards of quality and professionalism was the well-known 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.
A focus on values
Today, we continue to adhere to the values and principles of our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers. While funeral service has experienced many changes and has evolved over the years, we have found these tenets to still be suited to providing compassionate care to our families.
Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes continues to provide a thoughtful and quality-conscious service, which offers a caring response to the needs and desires of our families.
