The funeral for Elva Cyrena Bard, a longtime resident of the Forest Grove area, will be at 11 a.m. Thursday in the First Christian Church of Forest Grove. A graveside service will be at 3 p.m. Thursday in the Springwater Cemetery near Estacada.

Mrs. Bard died of causes related to age Monday in a Forest Grove care center. She was 95.

She was born July 15, 1898, in Springwater, where she was raised and received her schooling. Her maiden name was Shibley. Following her marriage to Thomas B. ''Tom'' Bard on Aug. 25, 1929, in Springwater, she moved to Forest Grove.

Mrs. Bard was a homemaker. She was a longtime member of the First Christian Church of Forest Grove. The city of Forest Grove named Bard Park on 22nd Avenue after her family. Her husband died in 1986.
