Death of Mrs. W. A. Fonda - Mrs. W. A. Fonda died at the home of her son, W. B. Fonda, on Main street at 6 o'clock this morning. Mrs. Fonda was in her 78th year. Her maiden name was Thankful Higby and she was born in Glens Falls, NY, where she married W. A. Fonda. Of their children four are living, W. B. Fonda, F. W. Fonda, Mrs. Florence Bruce, and Miss Gertrude Fonda. The family came to St. Albans in 1872. Mr. Fonda died in 1876 and Madame Fonda, as she was known by her friends, had since made her home with her son, W. B. Fonda. Mrs. Fonda was in splendid health until last July and had scarcely known a sick day in her life. From the illness of last summer she never recovered, and, although her condition improved at times she was slowly failing. The last few weeks of her illness were free from suffering and the end came very peacefully. Mrs. Fonda was one of those few persons who grow old gracefully. Her kindly and sunny disposition made her beloved by many friends whose sorrow mingles with that of the afflicted family. A short funeral service will be held at the house Thursday morning. The body will be taken on the 11 o'clock train to Glens Falls where the burial will be held at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon. 1894-12-04 St. Albans Daily Messenger.
