Ex-jeweler Seyfried dies at 60

Former Ann Arbor jewelry store owner Ralph Seyfried died Sunday following a brief illness. He was 60.

Seyfried, who operated the jewelry business bearing his name until his retirement in 1978, was a life-long Ann Arbor resident and for many years active in the Downtown Business Association.

He was a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Engineering and involved in a variety of community organizations. Seyfried was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, the Acacia Fraternity, the downtown Kiwanis CLub, the Elks Lodge No. 325, the Inverness Country Club and the Englewood Country Club of Englewood, Florida.

He is survived by a daughter, Pamela, of Chicago; two brothers, Calvin of Ann Arbor and Frederick of Florida; and four nieces.

Graveside services will be held at 3 p.m. Friday at the Bethlehem Cemetery, with the Rev. William C. Hillegonds officiating. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Building Fund.
