Mrs. Adams, 90, Dies At C-City

COLORADO CITY-- Last rites for Mrs. Frances Rix Adams, 90, will be held here at 3 p.m. Wednesday in her home at 405 Chestnut Street. Mrs. Adams, who came here almost 17 years ago when Colorado City was referred to as the "Queen City" of West Texas, died early Tuesday morning in the Root Memorial Hospital after a long illness.

The Rev. Angus Miller, Sweetwater Episcopal minister, will officiate, and burial will be in the Colorado City Cemetery beside the grave of her late husband, Charles M. Adams, who died July 26, 1940.

Mrs. Adams was born Frances Rix in Cedar Creek, Wisc. on Oct. 31, 1865. She came to Colorado City in 1883 and was married to Mr. Adams, a pioneer merchant and banker, on April 13, 1887. While health permitted, Mrs. Adams had been very active in club and church work.

Surviving are one daughter, Mrs. Byrd A. Buchanan; one sister, Mrs. H. W. Bauchelet, Hollywood, Calif.; and two granddaughters and three great-grandchildren. Pallbearers will be W. F. Sweatt, Hubert Howell, Joe Earnest, Joe H. Smoot, John H. Lupton, and James Lupton.
