FANDRY, Clarence - Willow Springs -- Clarence Fandrey, 67, was killed when his home at 220 Willow Springs Rd., caught fire Friday, Jan. 9, 1970. Fire appeared to have started in the bedroom where most of the damage occurred, but definite cause was undetermined. Fandrey, who lived alone, died of smoke inhalation and was pronounced dead on arrival at LaGrange Community Memorial Hospital. Police Chief Chester Burda said that a story, reporting that Fandrey had died because the fire department disconnected their hose to allow a Gulf, Mobile and Ohio train through, was completely false. "The fire was reported at 10:10 p.m. and Fandrey was evacuated promptly on arrival of firemen some minutes later. The house was almost demolished by the time the hose was disconnected to allow the train through at midnight," he said. It was necessary to lay the hose across the tracks in order to get it to the closest hydrant to the house. Fandrey was the brother of Harold Fandrey, former trustee and current sewer inspector for the village. [Contributed by source #1]

Despondency because of ill health led Mrs. Maggie Finnerty, 65 years old, to attempt suicide yesterday morning, and she is at the county hospital in a precarious condition. The aged woman lived with her daughter, Mrs. Kingsbury, at No. 29 Van Buren place, and for some time past she had been brooding over her ill health.

Physicians and the police from the Warren avenue station were notified, and Mrs. Finnerty was removed to the hospital. [The Inter Ocean (Chicago, Ill.) 30 Aug 1897, pg. 8]

FITZER, Mrs. Sara Ann (Doty) - Died at Chicago, July 16, at residence 166 Ashland Ave., of Bright's disease of the kidneys, Sara Ann, 29 years, 8 months, 16 days, wife of Mr. Somner B. Fitzer and daughter of Henry Doty of this city.
The death of Mrs. Sarah A. Fitzer, wife of Mr. Sumner B. Fitzer, at their residence No 166, Ashland avenue, Chicago, on Saturday, leaves a devoted husband bereft of an affectionate wife and three young boys destitute of a loving mother. Her death was in some measure expected, for she had been an invalid a long time, and for some time the symptoms had been aggravated and alarming. She came to Henry a few weeks ago, and was placed under the care of Drs Kalb and Hattan, who reported improvement while under their treatment. But with the intention of seeking relief at the seaside during the hot term, Mr. Fitzer came down and accompanied his wife to Chicago, on the night of July 5. Here she spent the week until Saturday, and was so much better that her mother commenced packing the trunks, and Mr. F. went down town to procure through tickets. Hardly had he left the house when the invalid had to take her couch, he was telephoned and in a short time she was a corpse. Thus her death, though feared, was a surprise at last. On Monday afternoon, the 18th, the remains arrived via C. R. I. & P. R. R. and at the Congregational church appropriate funeral services were conducted by the pastor of the church, Rev. J. S. Glendenning. The attendance of citizens was unusually large. Mrs. Fitzer was a native of Henry, - born, reared and married here.

HENRY FOREMAN PASSES AWAY.
One of the First Merchants Who Settled in Chicago Dies, Eighty-two Years Old.
Henry Foreman, 82 years old, died at his residence, 3418 Vernon avenue, yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, after an illness of several months. Mr. Foreman was one of the first merchants in Chicago and although he retired from active business in 1867 he has been connected, through his sons, with the Foreman Shoe company, Foreman Bros.' Banking company, and Mandel Bros. He was for many years one of the leaders among the Jews of this city and there are few large enterprises among his people in which he was not concerned.
Mr. Foreman was born in Dermstein, Germany, July 18, 1817. He came to America in 1838, settling in Pennsylvania, and moved to Delphi, Ind., in 1840. He was one of the first to settle there and lived in that town until 1854, when he came to Chicago.
With his brothers, Gerhard, Benjamin, and Joseph, he started the first wholesale clothing house in this city, under the name of Foreman Bros. This store was in South Water street, but when the civil war broke out it was moved to East Lake street. In 1867 the firm was dissolved. Mr. Foreman retired, but his brothers continued in different lines of business.
Although the oldest, Mr. Foreman survived his brothers and until a few years ago was hale and hearty. Until three months ago he was able to visit the various firms which his sons control and he took a keen interest in their work.
Mr. Foreman leaves a widow and the following children; Mrs. Leon Mandel, Mrs. Oscar Greenebaum, Mrs. Jacob Schandig, Miss Bertha Foreman, Edward H., Frank, Samuel H., Isaac H., and David H. Foreman. The funeral arrangements will be announced.

FREYTAG, Rosette -- Mrs. Rosette Freytag, daughter of Philip Kreckel and Johanna, nee Schuster, his faithful wife, was born July 31, 1845 at Westerburg, near Nassau, Germany. In accordance with the serious desire of her parents to give her and her two younger brothers, Ferdinand and Henry, a good general education and a Christian training, she was confirmed with thirty-five other children on Pentecost day, 1859, by Rev. C. Ninck, whose positive convictions and sincere character made profound and lasting impressions upon her mind and heart and actually acquired a final and decisive importance for the entire course of her life, which became a life of true conservation to her heavenly Lord.
Her close relations to Rev. Ninck’s home and later on to a Christian family, associated with the Church of the Brethren founded by Count Zinzendorf, and her admiration for a truly Christian life as practiced by that denomination finally resulted in the decision to enter, in 1868, the Institute for Christian Workers at Nonnenweiser, Baden, founded by the Mother Superior S. Jolberg, especially for the needs of children.
During the turbulent days of the Franco-Prussian war and the siege of Strassburg we find her in the home of a refined family a a governess of the children and after the war as deaconess in the institute for feeble minded children at Scheuern near Nassau. Her travels had taken her far, even to Paris, but it was her destiny to see and learn still more about the world. November 2, 1873 she married Rev. William H. Freytag at Pilsen, Bohemia, following him as his faithful and efficient companion into his missionary work among the Roman Catholics of Bohemia and Moravia. Pursuant to an invitation extended by the President General of the German Evangelical Synod of North America, the family, now comprising one son and three daughters, crossed the Atlantic, 1890, landing at Baltimore. During the long years of Rev. Freytag’s ministerial activities at various places in Illinois and Iowa, people of all kinds learned to respect and love Mrs. Freytag for her sincerity and unselfish disposition toward everybody, her genuine modesty and hospitality, her keen interest in every Christian effort and her sound judgment on any subject brought up in her conversations with persons of high or low station in life.
During the last three years the deceased was more or less ailing. Two weeks previous to her death “Grandmother” Freytag became bedfast and in spite of all care tendered her by her loved ones, her condition grew worse. On Monday morning, November 8, 1926 while all her children were assembled about her bed interceding for her in prayer, her soul was taken into God’s everlasting Kingdom. She leaves to mourn her loss four children: Rev. K. Freytag of Naperville, Illinois; Mr. Anna Schwartze of Pearl City, Illinois; Mrs. Marie Kreis of Dolton, Illinois; Miss Clara Freytag of Dolton, Illinois; two sons-in-law and one daughter-in-law: Rev. William Kreis, Mr. Conrad Schwartze, and Mrs. Lydia Freytag; thirteen grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and a host of friends and acquaintances.
Funeral services were conducted at Immanuel Church, Dolton, Illinois on Wednesday morning, November 10th, by Rev. John Goebel of Roseland. Rev. A. Dreusicke, Hinsdale, Illinois preached the German sermon on Rev. 14. 13, and Rev. A. B. Gaebe, Monee, Illinois preached the English sermon on Mark 14. 8. Both sermons were acknowledgements of the untiring and faithful services in God’s Kingdom by the deceased. Rev. E. Eilers brought the message of sympathy in the name of the Monee Pastoral Conference. The choir of Immanuel Evangelical church as well as the Ladies’ Aid, sang appropriate selections, the favorite songs of the deceased predominating.
Rev. W. J. Cramer, Mokena, Illinois and Rev. G. Plassman, Bensenville, Illinois officiated at the St. John’s Cemetery, Mokena, Illinois where the moral remains of the deceased found their last resting place at the side of her beloved husband, there to await the great resurrection call of her Lord and Master Jesus Christ.
