Funeral services were held Thursday at 2 p.m. for Mrs. Missouri Virginia Maseberg, 84, who died in an Alexandria hospital Wednesday at 1 a.m. following a long illness. Rites were conducted in the home of Mrs. S. E. Berry by the Rev. Alwin Stokes, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, assisted by the Rev.
