The funeral of the late Mrs. Helen Amelia FITZGERALD, pioneer resident of Rochester, who died in Koosiaka, Idaho, was held and then the body was committed to the earth. Rev. Daniel PERRY of the Presbyterian Church, officiated at the funeral.
The body of Mrs. Fitzgerald was delayed in reaching Rochester on its long journey from the West which caused the funeral arrangements to be changed and delayed twice. Owing to the uncertainty as to when it would arrive the plans were altered to have just the grave ceremony here. A church funeral had been held at Koosiaka under the direction of Mrs. Miles L. MARSH, a granddaughter, and another ceremony at the train.
Victor BARNETT, a grandson managing editor of the Tulsa Okla, Tribune, was present in Rochester and took charge of the burial. A large number of old friends and relatives of the deceased pioneer attended the final rites.
