DEATH TAKES MRS. SAM KUNTZ
Relative of Local People Buried Here on Saturday
Funeral services for Mrs. Florence Kuntz, 58, of 1607 Hale avenue, Fort Wayne, who died at 1:15 o'clock Thursday morning at the Methodist hospital after a two weeks' illness, were held Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Ankenbruck funeral home at Fort Wayne, with Rev. Barton A. Johnson officiating.
Burial was made here at the MRE Cemetery.
Surviving are two sons, Samuel and Noah E., both of Fort Wayne; three [sic] sisters, Mrs. Luella Warren, residing in Missouri and Mrs. O. M. Jeffries, of Union City, and five brothers: Peter and Cornelius Hoover, both of Union City; Joseph Hoover of Greenville, O.; James Hoover of Glendale, Cal.; and Michael Hoover of Muncie. Her husband, Samuel L. Kuntz, died four years ago.
Frank Kuntz of this place is a brother-in-law, and Mrs. David Simon of this place and Mrs. Esther Bolds, Robinson, Ill, are sisters-in-law.
There is no stone showing for Florence (Hoover) Kuntz, but a very nice FAG volunteer checked into this for me and here is her reply:
I contacted Mike Liechty the MRE Cemetery caretaker. He checked today and called to say. He can not locate a concrete vault next to Samuel but he believes there is an indentation in the soil as I suspected. He told me it was quite common to bury in a wooden vault and the wood has rotted. His belief is that someone is buried next to Samuel Kuntz. That someone is probably his wife if the obituary said she was buried at MRE in 1936. He checked and said that Samuel's vault must have been made of wood because he can't locate concrete at his burial site. If you know of any current relatives, Mike wanted me to tell you it is common to add a headstone for family members when there is none.
We suspect Florence Hoover Kuntz is buried next to her husband.
