    Rites Saturday For Former Mayor's Widow

    Funeral services were conducted at St. Francis Xavier Catholic church last Saturday morning for Mrs. Frances Octavia Fuchs, who died at her home on Greer avenue on the afternoon of January 8, nearly four months after the death of her husband, N. E. Fuchs, mayor of Sikeston for many years.

    Rev. A. H. Hoormann, assistant parish priest, conducted the services. Interment was made in the City Cemetery with Welsh service.

    Mrs. Fuchs had been in ill health for several years, suffering with a heart ailment and a complication of diseases. At the time of her husband's death she was critically ill but later rallied and her condition for a time improved. However, for several weeks she had been unable to regain her strength and the end came peacefully last week.

    Mrs. Fuchs, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Meunier of Sikeston, was born in Reno, Ind., on January 30, 1887. For the past thirty-two years she and her family had been residents of Sikeston. She was a devout member of the Catholic church and in her modest, retiring way fulfilled the duties of her religion to loved ones and friends.

    Beside her parents Mrs. Fuchs is survived by one son, N. E. Fuchs Jr., two sisters, Mrs. J. P. Cunningham of Festus, and Mrs. Henry Little of Magnet, Ind., and two brothers, Robert Meunier of Beggs, Okla., and Charles Meunier of Sikeston. Other survivors include her niece, Mrs. R. L. Strobach, whom she partially reared, and a nephew, August Little of Vandalia, Mo.

    Among relatives and friends from out of town who attended the last rights were Mr. and Mrs. August Little of Vandalia, Mo.; Mrs. R. L. Strobach, wife of Dr. R. L. Strobach of Cameron, Mo.; Mrs. J. P. Cunningham of Festus; Mrs. Henry Little of Magnet, Ind.; Mrs. John Pollock, East Prairie; Mr. and Mrs. Milo Pollock, Memphis; Mrs. Tom Vilafro, Charleston; and Mrs. Evelyn Pollock, Perryville.
