    Funeral services for Amy Lillian Frogge, Corvallis matron and long time valley resident who died Thursday, were held Monday afternoon at the Dowling chapel with the Rev. Jesse Dove and the Rev. Roger Robison of Corvallis officiating. Burial was in Corvallis cemetery and pallbearers were Paul Lear, Gilbert Chaffin, Glenn Chaffin, Milford Cobb, Lee Simmons and Gene Lear.

    Mrs. Frogge died in Daly hospital here Thursday evening following a short illness following a heart ailment. She had been active in church and other Corvallis community life until a week before she was stricken.

    Mrs. Frogge was the former Amy Lillian Meyers and was born October 15, 1865, in Greensburg Mo. She was married in Greensburg on March 3, 1887, to D. R. Frogge, who preceded her in death in 1926.

    The Frogge’s came to Montana in 1890, and settled on a ranch in the Willow creek district south-east of Corvallis where they lived for many years. They later sold the ranch and moved to a small farm a half mile south of town before moving in to Corvallis where Mrs. Frogge operated a variety store for several years. Mr. Frogge was an early day teacher in the valley.

    The deceased matron was a member of the Baptist church, the Corvallis Woman’s club, Ladies Aid of the Community church and the Bitter Root Fifty-Year club. She was a lover of flowers and seldom missed taking a bouquet to her church each Sunday.

    Survivors are two daughters and a son-in-law, Mrs. Dean O. Cobb and Mr. and Mrs. Del Brisbin, Corvallis; a sister, Mrs. M. L. Chaffin, Corvallis; a brother, W. R. Meyers, Missoula; two grandsons, Orion Cobb, Corvallis and LaVern Cobb, Inglewood, Calif; six great grandchildren, nieces and nephews and a sister-in-law, Mrs. Robert Meyers, Corvallis.
