Mrs. Voorhees' Rites at Medora
MEDORA, March 25, (Special) -- The funeral of Mrs. Donald Voorhees was held this morning at 10 O'clock at the home on the farm near here. Burial took place in Medora cemetery. A number of Alton friends and relatives attended the funeral but many others who intended to go to the service were detained at home on account of the heavy rains. Among those who went to the Voorhees farm Sunday and remained over for the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Voorhees of College avenue, and Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Carter, of Main street, Alton.
"Suicide by drowning" was the verdict following an inquest into Mrs. Voorhees death. The inquest was conducted by coroner McBrian of Staunton Saturday afternoon. A previous attempt at suicide had been made by her three weeks ago, it was testified during the inquest. She left a note explaining her death. She had been in ill health for some time.
Mrs. Voorhees was the daughter of Mrs. Georgia Kitzmiller, many years a resident of College avenue in upper Alton, whose death occurred four weeks ago at Medora. She was a grand-daughter of the late George Palmer, one of the largest pioneer land owners in the Medora neighborhood. Donald Voorhees, the surviving husband, spent his boyhood days on Sunny Side farm just north of the city limits at Upper Alton where his father, Prof. George L. Voorhees, was superintendent of the Upper Alton public schools 30 years ago.
Following the marriage of Mr. an Mrs. Donald Voorhees the couple engaged in farming on the land where her tragic death occurred Saturday and which had been owned by her grandfather. They were successful and after a few years retired from farming and built a modern home in Medora. Three years ago they sold their Medora residence to Frank Whitfield who converted the residence into a funeral home. After selling their home in Medora Mr. and Mrs. Voorhees returned to their farm to reside.
