History

Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes helps residents in the greater Lansing community with their funeral and cremation services. Each Gorsline Runciman funeral home strives for service excellence, and our reputation has been built upon 4 generations of our commitment to the communities we serve.

Funeral home founders

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. The highest standards of quality and professionalism were 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 embraced. Angus MacDonald founded the Mason firm in 1868 as a carpentry and undertaking business. Again, their sensibilities and meticulous attention to detail formed an exceptional approach to funeral service.

Continuing our legacy

Today, we continue to adhere to the values and principles of our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers. While the funeral service industry has evolved over the years, we have found these tenets to still be suited to providing compassionate care to our families.

Gorsline Runciman continues to provide thoughtful burial and cremation services in Lansing, which cater to the needs and desires of our families. We remain committed to providing excellence in service to every family we serve.

"Our immediate family never had to plan a funeral before and seriously had no idea where to start. Amanda and her team were absolutely wonderful to work with and guided us through each decision. We are so grateful for their compassion and personal approach with us."

"We had a perfect experience. Each person that we dealt with was so caring, kind and sooo helpful! From the moment the gentlemen took our mom to Gorsline Runciman, to the day we got her death certificates. Each and every interaction was appropriate, above and beyond with considerate actions and thoughtfulness. The meeting to plan the service was

seamless. Dropping our mom's accessories and clothing off was received with dignity. Missing the deadline to upload photos was horrifying but the gal that helped me on that Sunday, fixed things while keeping me calm - what an over achiever ;) Before and after the service the staff was so helpful in such quiet ways. Our limo drivers were conscientious and kind. Even when it was time to load the car with flowers, that I'm allergic too, they offered to have them taken to our desired location. This office has the best staff for this industry. There's not enough words to say how grateful we were to have you help us in our days of grief."
