Rites Set for Drowning Victims (By the Star's Own Service)
Girard, Kan. __Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Bath Funeral Home in Pittsburg, Kansas, for five Pittsburg persons who drowned in Farlington Lake, 9 miles north of Girard, late Saturday afternoon.
Drowned after their 18-foot boat capsized were Ora C. Large, 65, a TV and radio repairman and owner of the boat; his wife, Mrs. Hazel Large, 58, a nurse's aide at a Pittsburg nursing home; a daughter, Annette, 7; a granddaughter, Sherry Wirt, 7, and a grandson Ronald W. Large, 3.
The boat, loaded with 10 family members, overturned after attempting to cross waves left by a speeding boat, Crawford County sheriff's officers said.
The victims were caught between the canopy and the boat after it overturned, the sheriff's office said. Volunteers from other boats on the state-owned recreational lake attempted to rescue the 10 person party, a deputy said. The five survivors were released yesterday morning from Girard Hospital where they were taken after the accident. They are Donald Large, 35, Leo Large, 20, and Richard Large, 10, all sons of the Ora Larges; Steven Munger, 11, a grandson, and Michael Tony, 11, stepson of Donald Large.
