O.O. Fraze Found Dead in Church
Basement Friday Morning
          O. O. Fraze, 59, local mortician, died suddenly Friday morning at about 6:30 o’clock, of a heart attack. Mr. Fraze had gone to the Main Street Church of Christ to look after the fire as he had been doing recently. Upon his failure to return home, his son Harry went to the church to look for him and found him lying dead in the kitchen.
          The deceased had been in the undertaking business here in Winchester for the past 18 years, and had been connected with S. S. Fraze in the same business since a young man, having been located in Lynn and Union City before coming to this city.
          He was at the time of his death president of the Winchester school board, an active member of the Main Street Church of Christ, a member of the Masons, Odd fellows and Jr. O. U. A. M. and was always interested in civic enterprises.
          Surviving are the widow, Mrs. Floy Fraze, one daughter, Lois, and one son, Harry.
          Funeral arrangements have not beenmmade, pending work from relatives in the west.
