A graveside service for Lewiston homemaker Laura May Rydvall will be conducted at 1 p.m. Friday at Normal Hill Cemetery at Lewiston. Sister Mary Ann Farley of the Pastoral Care Department at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Lewiston will officiate.

She died of cancer Tuesday at her Lewiston home. She was 82.

She was born Jan. 3, 1912, at Concordia, Kan., to James S. and Myra Spratlen Ellis.

She attended school in Kansas and was baptized at the First Christian Church there. She married Charles E. (Chick) Rydvall Sr. at Belleville, Kan., Feb. 24, 1935.

After their marriage, they lived in Kansas until 1940, when they moved to Lewiston.

Her husband died June 2, 1980. Laura May Rydvall was preceded in death by two brothers, James H. Ellis and Leland Ellis.

She cared for many children during her life and kept in touch with them throughout the years. In later years she enjoyed going out to eat with her family and friends.

Survivors include two daughters, Dorothy M. Jensen and Darlene E. McCann; one son, Charles E. Rydvall Jr., and a brother, Leonard B. Ellis Sr., all of Lewiston; five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

The family suggests memorials be sent to St. Joseph Family Hospice, P.O. Box 816, Lewiston, Idaho 83501.

Malcom's Brower-Wann Memorial Chapel at Lewiston is in charge of arrangements.
