KISS, Imre
 
Services for Imre Kiss, 24-year-old Hungarian refugee who was accidentally shot to death yesterday at Manns Choice, Pa., will be conducted Saturday at 2 p. m. at Lybarger (Pa.) Lutheran Church. Rev. J. M. Scharf, pastor, will officiate and interment will be in Lybarger Cemetery. The body will remain at the Ziegler Funeral Home, Hyndman, until noon Saturday when it will be taken to the church. Kiss was pronounced dead on arrival at Bedford County Hospital where he was taken after the shooting on the farm of C. T. Bockhouse. Ralph Mickle, deputy coroner of Bedford County, said the victim died of a chest wound as a result of the accidental shooting. Mickle said Kiss and two friends, Robert Jones Jr. and Charles Bockhouse, had just returned from hunting groundhogs and were sitting in a parked car. Jones and Bockhouse were sitting in the front seat and Kiss was alone in the rear seat. The Bockhouse youth was taking the bolt off the .218 calibre rifle when it discharged. Mickle said the bullet passed through the back of the front seat and struck the victim in the chest.  The Hungarian refugee came to this country after the revolution and was sponsored by C. T. Bockhouse, on whose farm the accident occurred. Kiss left Manns Choice last November for New York City, where he had been employed in a furniture factory. He returned Tuesday to his home in Manns Choice to spend his summer vacation. Kiss had been a member of the Hungarian Army, but fled from Hungary during the revolution there in the fall of 1956. He is survived by his father, Albert Kiss, who still resides in Hungary, and two sisters who also are living there.

KITZMILLER, Shirley Lee Sines

Housewife, 19, is Victim in Lake Drowning ~ Shirley Kitzmiller Dies at Deep Creek

Mrs. Shirley Lee Kitzmiller, daugther of Mr. and Mrs. George Sines, Swallow falls, reported lost hold of an innertube she had been clinging to about 15 feet from shore. She could not swim. Trooper Ronald Lewis of the State Police, who investigated the drowning, said Mrs. Kitzmiller and her younger sister, Patsy Sines, 12, were both on the innertube when the wake from one or more nearby motorboats apparently caused them to become seperated from it.

The body was not recovered for about 30 minutes, and resuscitation attempts with an oxygen inhalator were of no avail. The drowning oaccurred at 1 p.m. about two miles east of Swallow Falls near the Sines residence. Mrs. Kitzmiller was born in Swallow Falls and was a member of Loch Lynn Church of God.  She is survived by her husband, Arthur; six sisters, Mrs. June Holtschneider, Deer Park, Mrs. Agnes Paugh and Mrs. Janet Callas, both of Mt. Lake Park, Mrs. Sue Riley, Pleasant Valley, and Misses Dorothy and Patricia Sines, at home; five brothers, James, stationed with the Army in Germany, Lawrence, Swallow Falls, Robert, Terra Alta, Dean, Pleasant Valley and Delmas, at home.  The body is at the Minnick Funeral Home where friends will be received today from 7 to 9 p.m. and tomorrow from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m.   A service will be conducted Friday at 2 p.m. at the funeral home by Rev.

KITZMILLER, Stephen

ELK GARDEN NEWS - A most distressing and fatal case of burning occurred on Nethken Hill last Monday. Stephen, son of Mr. and Mrs. U. Grant Kitzmiller, aged 4 years, 3 months and 13 days, was burned to death in a small stable. He went into the stable to play with some pups which was a usual pastime for him. When the fire was discovered the stable was in full flame. The alarm was raised but nothing could be done to stay the flames until the body was burned and charred beyond recognition. It is supposed the hay was ignited by a match. The funeral services were preached by Rev. L. C. Messick, and the interment was on Atlantic Hill in the burying ground on Frank Junkin's.
