Services for Louis Horst, vice chairman of the board of the Lord Baltimore Laundry, will be held at 10 a.m. today at the Mitchell-Wiedefeld Home, 6500 York Road.

Mr. Horst, who was 86 and lived at Versailles Apartments, died Thursday at Meridian Nursing Center-Brightwood after a short illness.

He helped found the laundry in 1926 and was president of the Baltimore Laundry and Dry Cleaning Institute and the Tri-State Laundry and Dry Cleaners Association.

Born in Baltimore and a graduate of the Polytechnic Institute, he lived in Stoneleigh for many years and then in Ruxton for about 20 years before moving to the Versailles Apartments about 20 years ago.

He was a St. Paul's School board member and a founder of the school's parents' organization.

He was a golfer and a member of the Baltimore Country Club.

His wife, the former Elizabeth Garver, died in 1976.

He is survived by a son, Louis Horst Jr. of Ruxton; a daughter, Barbara Mautner of Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.; a brother, John H. Horst of Towson; and five grandchildren.

The family suggested contributions to St. Paul's School.
