Gun Victim's Rites Tuesday - Mrs. Cora Fonda Philips, 75, Had Been Ill; Brother, Nephew Survive - Fultonville, Jan. 30 - Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock for Mrs. Cora Fonda Philips, 75, who was found dead at her home here Saturday morning with a bullet-wound in her heart. Rev. Putman Cady of the Fonda Reformed Church will officiate at the services at the Dorn and Van Epps funeral home here, and the body will be placed in the vault at the Maple Avenue cemetery. Mrs. Philips' body was found by Special Investigator William J. Green of the sheriff's office, notified by Gordon S. Weeper of this village, who had become alarmed upon calling at the Philips home without getting an answer. Green said Mrs. Philips was lying in bed, a .22 caliber revolver beside her with one shell fired. Mrs. Philips had been in poor health for some time, and neighbors today recalled she had several times spoken of her decision to "end it all." Her husband, George Phillips, committed suicide a few years ago. It is thought the shooting occurred Thursday night, as the entry in the aged woman's diary for that day read, "Not feeling any too well today." Mrs. Raymond J. Van Alstyne of this village received a letter from Mrs. Phillips Friday morning. Dr. Malcolm Bouton, coroner, said an autopsy would be performed. Everything in the house was in order, and all doors were locked from the inside. Since the death of her husband, Mrs. Philips had lived alone. Survivors are a brother, William Fonda, Seattle, and a nephew, Edward Fonda of Gloveraville. Mrs. Philips had resided here most of her life. Schenectady NY Gazette, Monday, January 31, 1938.
