SHERWOOD YOUTH DROPS DEAD DURING MYSTERY
Dramatic suspense of a high school play was too much for Robert Ziemendorf, seven-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Dewey Ziemendorf of Sherwood, last week.
As the play, "Mystery at Mid-night," reaches its climax of suspense in the Pittsville village auditorium, an actor shrieked. Robert slumped in his seat.
A physician examined him in the council room, off the auditorium, and said that his heart had failed.
Funeral services were held in the Sherwood community church Friday afternoon.
Robert is survived by his parents and two sisters, Lois and Joyce.
