No services are planned for former area resident Everett E. Williams, 82, who passed away on Aug. 9 in Spokane.
Born on Nov. 21, 1928, to the late Edward and Minnie (Wallace) Williams in Darlington, Idaho, he moved often growing up and therefore attended many schools, but graduated from Deer Park High School in 1947. After high school he joined the Air Force, where he also took college classes.
He later became the manager of Sprouse Reitz stores in the Hillyard and Garland locations before moving to Colville to manage the Sprouse Reitz there.
A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Aug. 19 at the Cheney United Methodist Church with a luncheon to follow for former Chattaroy Elementary School teacher Irene Rufer, 92, who passed away Aug. 8 in Spokane.
Born on Sept. 4, 1918, in Hillsboro, Ore., to Jacob and Flora (Wright) Rufer, she attended schools in Holbrook and Silverton, Ore. She attended high school in Spangle, Wash.
She continued her education at Eastern Washington University where she received her bachelorâ€™s degree in education and later received her master's degree.
