Mrs. Mary Schenkel Fritz, aged 78, wife of Adolph Fritz and one of the best known and respected women of the city, died at 9:15 o'clock last evening at her home, 337 West Fourth street, following a paralytic stroke which she suffered Wednesday night. She had been practically unconscious since last Thursday morning. Her entire family were at her bedside when the death angel summoned her. She was formerly Miss Mary Ackerman. She was born near Wittemburg, Germany, on Nov. 17, 1835. At the age of 22 years she came to this country and resided at Baltimore, Md. Later she located at Barrytown, Dutchess County, New York, where she married. A few years later her husband and family removed to Cleveland, where they resided until 1872 when the family decided to locate in East Liverpool. Her first husband, Jacob Schenkel, was a barber by trade and for years conducted a barber shop in the Little building in the Diamond. He was also a constable for a short time. He was killed in January, 1900, when struck by a passenger train, while walking the C. and P. tracks near the C.C. Thompson pottery.

Besides her husband she is survived by the following children: Mrs. Charles Berg, Mrs. Burt Kaufman, Henry Schenkel and Charles Schenkel. Ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren also survive.
Mrs. Fritz was a devout member of the First Methodist Protestant church of this city and it was only when her health failed her that she was forced to retire from active church work. Her cheerful and charitable disposition won her scores of friends, to whom the news of her death comes as a deep sorrow.
Complete arrangements for the funeral have not yet been made. However, it is probable services will be held Wednesday afternoon from the late home on Fourth street, and afterwards from the church.
