Mrs. Ryder, Short Time Resident, Dies At Home

Mrs. Sarah [Lovica] Ryder, 79, passed away some time during the night at her home on North 8th St. Her body was found about 7 o’clock this morning lying beside the bed by her great grand niece Mrs. Sam Shipman who came yesterday to visit the aged woman. Mrs. Ryder is survived by one son Chester who lives here and a daughter Mina and two grandchildren of Minneapolis.

Mr. Ryder died in 1919 and Mrs. Ryder lived on her farm near Ruthven until last fall when she moved into her home on N. 8th St. Mrs. Ryder was born in Wisconsin June 7th, 1861. Mrs. Ryder had been in good health, and appeared well last night. The physician who was called said death was due to heart failure and that she had been dead a few hours.

Mrs. L. A. Ryder
Mrs. L. A. Ryder, mother of Chester Ryder of this city, was found dead in her room at her home at seven o’clock on Tuesday morning. A heart attack was believed to have been the cause of death.

Mrs. Ryder retired on Monday evening apparently in good health. She was found lying face down in her room the following morning. It was thought probable the attack was caused by the extreme heat. It was apparent Mrs. Ryder had passed away some time before she was found.

Mrs. Ryder moved here from Ruthven in 1915. After her husband’s death in 1919 she returned to Ruthven. Last fall she returned to Estherville to make her home. She is survived by her son Chester Ryder and a daughter, Mina, of Minneapolis, Minn. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, July 25, 1940)

Ryder Funeral Held Today
The Rev. Fred Sawyer conducted the funeral service of Mrs. L. A. Ryder at two o’clock this afternoon. The service was held in the Mahlum and Anderson chapel. Mrs. Ryder passed away early Tuesday morning at her home.

Mrs. Ryder was preceded in death by her husband who died in 1919. Mrs. Ryder was 79 years old at the time of her death. She was born in Reedsburg, Wis., and lived many years in Ruthven and a short time in Estherville. Burial was made in the Oak Hill cemetery.
