Mrs. Cornelia Dounce Dies of Shock While Listening to Radio

Private rites for Mrs. Cornelia Dounce of 204 Marshall Street, who dropped dead of a heart attack Tuesday, shortly after hearing radio reports of an air raid alarm on Long Island, will be conducted at 11 A.M. Thursday at the home. The Rev. Harry B. Taylor of First Presbyterian Church will officiate.

Mrs. Dounce's housekeeper said her employer apparently had been excited over the safety of her son Harry E. Dounce, author and former Syracuse newspaperman, who lives at Bayside, L.I. Mrs. Dounce got out a map after hearing the first alarm to see how close her son's home was to that section. About 2:10 P.M., she slumped over in her chair. The family physician was called and pronounced her dead.

The widow of George A. Dounce, who died Dec. 8, 1937, Mrs. Dounce was a member of the First Presbyterian Church. She is survived by two sons, Harry E. and Alexander L. Dounce of Rochester, three grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
