Winfield Scott Fonda, 79, highly regarded farmer in the Town of Mohawk, died at 5:45 P.M. yesterday at his home near Fonda. His death, which followed a lingering illness, was due to a complication of diseases. Mr. Fonda was born in September, 1853, in Canajoharie, the son of John and Jane Cole Fonda. He was a staunch Republican and was extremely loyal to his party, going to the polls with great difficulty at the last election to cast his vote. Occupied as a farmer all his life, Mr. Fonda was widely known and respected. He was a man of staunch principles and sterling character. Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Emma Jane Copp Fonda; five sons, Fred of Syracuse, John of Ephratah, Nathan of Stone Ridge, Winfield of Fultonville and Edgar of Fonda; four daughters, Mrs. Earl Young of Stone Ridge, Mrs. Sedgwick Quackenbush of Fultonville, Ida Fonda of Johnstown and Viola Fonda of Fonda; one sister, Mrs. Jerome Sawyer of Vail Mills; three brothers, Herbert; Everett and William, all of Johnstown; 36 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at 2 P.M. Monday at the family home. The Rev. Malcolm Kelly, pastor of the Fonda Methodist church, will officiate. Interment will be made in Caugbnawaga cemetery.
