A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday in First United Methodist Church, with Dr. Dean Fager officiating. Inurnment, at a later date, will follow in Mount Hope Cemetery.

Friends will be received from 4 to 8 p.m. today in Fisher Funeral Chapel and Cremation Services and an hour before services at the church on Thursday.
