Note 1

The husband of Mary Woods.

Son of J. D. Woods, bp. AR. and Lottie (Hansford) Woods, bp. MO.

Frank Watson Woods, 53, city park commissioner, was suddenly stricken while on duty at the park Tuesday evening, and died a few minutes later in the Bigham ambulance as he was being taken to his home. According to those who had seen him working about the park he was in his usual health that day, but became ill suddenly and went to the small refreshment stand on Spring Street across from the park. A physician and Mrs. Woods were called and he was still conscious when the latter arrived. His death was due to cerebral hemorrhage.

Funeral services are being conducted by the Rev. G. W. Kelley, pastor of the Northside Baptist Church, and the Rev. T. M. Norris at the First Baptist Church at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon. Members of the city council will act as pallbearers and burial will be made in the IOOF Cemetery.

Mr. Woods came to Neosho from Pea Ridge, Ark., in 1910, and secured a position with the Bigham Furniture and Undertaking Company where he worked for three years. Later he was employed by the Herms Furniture Company and remained with that firm for 11 years. After that he operated a little shop of his own at his home on W. McCord Street. For the past six years he has been an employee of the city as park commissioner and his painstaking care of the park has made it the beauty spot of the town, eliciting admiration and praise from the hundreds of visitors, scores from out of town who enjoy it every year. His unfailing courtesy, kindness and patience to those who have stopped there have won him many friends who are deeply grieved at his passing.

Surviving besides his widow are a daughter, Mrs. Herbert Noe and two sons, Paul and Floyd of Neosho, four brothers, Elbert and William Woods of Hiwasse, Ark., Dee Woods of Sulphur Springs, and George Woods of Lynn Haven, Fla., and three sisters, Mrs. Armina Bates and Miss Letha Cowger of Hiwasse, and Mrs. Pearl Lanbeth of Wichita.
