McCormick, Stephen Montgomery
Death Claims Prominent Citizen S. M. McCormick
The community was shocked and stunned on Armistice Day by news of the sudden death of one of its most prominent citizens, Stephen M. McCormick, 65, who suffered a heart attack while working on his farm.
Mr. McCormick had taken advantage of the holiday to do some needed chores on the farm, which had been both a hobby and a business with him. After bringing in several sacks of pecans at noon, he told his family he was ging [sic] out to sow some clover seed. Apparently he tried too much strenuous work for one day and as far as is known the heart stroke came at about 4 o'clock that afternoon.
With Mill 30 Years
Assistant manager of the Weimar Oil Mill, he had been with the mill more than 30 years. Prior to that he had been in the lumber business, farming and cattle-raising. He was secretary of the Colorado County Chapter, American Red Cross; secretary treasurer of the Methodist board of stewards; and a member of the Methodist Men's Bible Class. He was also active in the Chamber of Commerce and civic projects here.
Born in Weimar, January 25, 1883, he was the son of the late Stephen and Hattie S. McCormick. On Nov. 30, 1927, he was married to Miss Itasca Hill, in San Antonio, by Bishop Paul ____.
Surviving in addition to his wife, are four sisters, Mrs. Jno C. Hubbard of Weimar, Mrs. Peyton Irving of Dallas, Mrs. W. M. Vinson of Houston, and Mrs. G. E. Aldridge of Fort Worth; and one brother, Alexis McCormick of Houston.
Funeral services were held from Hubbard Funeral Home Saturday afternoon, with Rev. J. M. McDonald officiating, and interment was in the City Cemetery. Weimar stores closed in tribute during the funeral hour.
Active pallbearers were Henry Brasher, Laure Brasher, Charles Allen, C. A. Grobe, Leroy Herder, F. O. Boettcher, John Mozisek and Dewey Goode.
