History

Ramsay Group Funeral Services has been serving Pinconning, Kawkawlin, Standis & Gladwin MI area families for years. We are honored to be a part of the rich history of this community and plan to be a part of it for many years to come.

Our Home was originally established in 1906 by Stephen Green. His son Chester joined the business in 1928. Floyd Lee purchased the Home in 1940, and was joined by his son Francis in the late 1940s. In 1958, the business was relocated to our current location. An ambulance service ran from our funeral home until 1969.

David Ramsay joined Francis Lee in 1979 and purchased business in 1984. Thomas Smith, the Rivertown Funeral Chapel provides local service to the Kawkawlin area. Originally a residential home, this comfortable facility was later converted to a restaurant and banquet hall. We have named our main Chapel the Harris Room, and the second Chapel, which overlooks the Kawkawlin River, is called the River Room.

In 1999 Tom retired, selling his interest to David. Completed new addition May 2004 that doubled the size of the building and added more parking area. Now have three chapels the Harris Room, River Room and T.H. Smith Room. Added new selection room and arrangement center.


 

Gladwin Chapel

This real estate has been a funeral home since 1945 - Louis Regal of Regal Funeral Home in Flint started here after World War II. Bob Sisson purchased the business in January 1984. Bob has been in funeral service since 1968 and graduated from Wayne State University in 1975. Today, Sisson Funeral Home is owned and managed by David S. Ramsay. We serve all faiths and offer a wide variety of services. Funeral service today is becoming more and more personalized. We treat funeral service as a celebration of the life that was lived.

Our funeral home is a very comfortable Victorian style home with warmth and character. We are handicapped accessible and our main chapel will accommodate 150 seats while our overflow chapel may accommodate another 80 seats. If the family would like to bring in refreshments, we offer a full size refrigerator/freezer, microwave, and coffee maker. We also offer a children's area where we have a TV/VCR/DVD with some VHS and DVD selections, but parents are encouraged to bring in their own children's favorites.
