Frances Langshaw Obituary

Frances L. Langshaw passed away peacefully at 87 years of age on January 24, 2024 with her children at her side. She was born August 19, 1936 in Salina, Kansas where she spent most of her life.  Frances married Richard L. Ryberg and thus produced two children; Russell L. Ryberg (Salina) and Rena L. Ryberg (Spearville.)

Frances was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Etta Langshaw, and her brother, George.  Survivors include her son and daughter; her three grandchildren: Alyson Ryberg (Richmond, TX), Nikki Ryberg (fiancee Andy Khamdalanikone, Salina) and Travis Ryberg (Salina); as well as eight great-grandchildren.

Frances was a proud member of the graduating class of 1954 from Salina High School; her classmates and class reunions were a source of joy. She was also a graduate of Marymount College of Salina and an Alpha Xi Delta Sorority member from Kansas State University.

Frances was a Salina “historian” and loved her hometown. She shared her knowledge with many and was an avid collector of all things Salina. She was a member of the Saline County Historical Society; a long-time member of Native Daughters; as well as a fifty-year member of Eastern Star.

Frances was an educator, teaching in numerous schools during her time in the classroom. She was perhaps best known as the In-School Suspension teacher at Roosevelt-Lincoln Junior High in Salina, Kansas where she was known as Frances Norlin (as she was married to Gilbert D. Norlin at that time.)

Frances loved animals! Whether it be a furry or feathered friend, her heart was big and her spirit generous. To honor this special woman, please feel free to make a donation in her memory to the Salina Animal Services.

A graveside service will be held on Saturday, June 29 at 10:30 a.m. at Gypsum Hill Cemetery in Salina, Kansas.

She will be missed by many.
