Charles "Herold" Rice, age 84, a resident of Parma for the past 26 years, went to be with the Lord, Sunday night, May 30, 1993, at a Payette nursing home.  Funeral services commemorating his life will be held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, June 3, 1993, at Dakan Funeral Chapel, Caldwell. Private interment will be at Lower Boise Cemetery, Parma.
    Herold was born December 3, 1908, at Meeker, Oklahoma, to Ross and Parnie F. Rice.  His family moved to Idaho shortly after his fifth birthday, settling first near Castleford.  He attended schools in Buhl, Huston and Caldwell; and graduated from the College of Idaho in 1931 with a Bachelor of Science Degree, majoring in chemistry and minoring in mathematics.
    After mining and farming, Herold taught school in four districts: Ten Davis, Wilder, Midvale and Parma, over a 26-year-period, retiring in 1972.  He was an avid rock hound, a hobby he particularly enjoyed during his retirement years.
    He is survived by his wife, Helen of the family home; four children, Duane and his wife, Lela of Brigham City, Utah, Ken of Payette, Lola and her husband, Alan of Montesaro, Washington, and Gary of Weiser.  He leaves 8 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.  He is also survived by his two sisters, Edna Strait of Nampa, and Glee Little of Covina, California; and many other relatives and special friends.
    His family suggests that memorials be sent to the Parma Senior Center, 410 N. 8th, Parma, ID 83660 or to the Payette Assembly of God Memorial Fund, 7th Ave. N. & 5th, Payette, ID 83661.
