Fatal Attack During Blaze
Springfield Woman Stricken at Fire
A heart attack claimed the life of a Springfield woman last night shortly after a fire was discovered in the garage of her son's home. Mrs. Stella M. Frank was pronounced dead upon arrival at Springfield Baptist Hospital where she was taken by Seiferd ambulance. Mrs. Frank lived with her son, William F. Frank, at 2416 South Roanoke. The son, a meteorologist at the Springfield Weather Bureau, had just reported to work when his wife discovered smoke coming from the garage. Fire trucks from No. 6 station answered the call at 10:45 p.m. for help and used oxygen and the resuscitator on the woman who had collapsed while seated on the front steps. The blazed caused little damage to the garage but filled the house with smoke. Mrs. Frank was a resident of Springfield for the past 35 years. Her husband, John died six years ago. Mrs. Frank, a nurse during World War I, was a member of the Campbell Street Methodist Church, the Nurses Club, the War Widows and the Royal Neighbors Club.
