Fred Phillips Died Suddenly After Evening Meal.

Friends of Fred P. Phillips were saddened by his sudden death at his home in Algona on Monday. He was feeling unusually fine right after the evening meal and all at once he complained of a pain in his heart. He died immediately after this. Death was due to a stroke or to a heart attack. He had suffered from a stroke before and had been ailing for a number of years. He lost an arm in 1918 while living on the Jack Jones farm south of Algona and this bothered him up to the time of his death and also necessitated the family moving to Algona.

Mr. Phillips was an honorable and upright citizen, respected by all who knew him, and he will be missed from this community. He was the father of Perry Philips, who was a recent candidate for the office of Sheriff of this county.

Fred P. Phillips was born February 2, 1854, in Baldwinsville, New York, and died in Algona, June 16, 1930 at the age of seventy-six years. On December 17, 1879, he was united in marriage to Anna E. Jones in Illinois. The family came to Iowa in 1881 and settled near Woolstock. In 1912 they moved to Kossuth county and lived on what is known as the Jack Jones farm south of Algona.

They moved to Algona in the fall of 1918 and this has been their home ever since. Besides his wife, eight children are left to mourn. They are Perry A. and Lloyd R., of Algona; Cora D. Miller of Sioux City; Ruby Mae Hagle of Gunnison, Colorado; Mary P. Dunn, of Laramie, Wyoming; Imogene Wildin of Algona; and Ione Bacon of Burt. Three children: William, Arthur and Leslie died in infancy. One sister, Mrs. Emmagene Tucker of Syracuse, New York, also survives.

The date of the funeral has not been set as yet [blurred wording] daughters in Wyoming and Colorado. The funeral will be held in the Baptist church in Algona with Rev. A. English and Rev. Frank H. Welister officiating. The burial will be in Riverview cemetery.
