A 'colourful' memorial service will be held on Saturday for popular media personality Elva Ruddock, who died on October 7 after battling the autoimmune disease Lupus.

The service will begin at 2 pm and will take place at the Karl Hendrickson Auditorium at Jamaica College in St Andrew.

"Last year, she wrote her will and the format her memorial service must take. She also requested a party to follow. All her friends and associates called, wanting to do something, so everything falls in line, really, with her wishes," said Evla's sister, Karen Ruddock-Frederick.

"She also requested no nine night. The family understands, though, that several persons who consider Elva their own have gone ahead and done something in recognition as she is well loved."

Ruddock-Frederick said that no eulogy will be delivered at Saturday's thanksgiving service.
