Adela Bertha Louise (nee) Borchers Frantzen of Boerne passed away at Riverview Care in Boerne, Texas, on November 2, 2014, at the age of 94 years old. She was born July 28, 1920, in Fredericksburg, Texas, to Louis and Bertha Borchers.

Adela is survived by her two sons; Paul W. Frantzen and wife Bonnie Sue of Crocker, Missouri, and Carl A. Frantzen and wife Bonnie of Boerne, Texas. Also, two grandsons, Andrew S. Frantzen and wife Jordan of Boerne and Barrett W. Frantzen and wife Misty of Bandera, Texas; great grandchildren: Nicholas D. Frantzen and Jaxon L. Frantzen of Boerne and Grace and Austin Kelly of Bandera; and numerous relatives and friends.

Adela was preceded in death by her parents, Louis and Bertha Borchers; her husband, Clifton E. Frantzen; her granddaughter, Hailey M. Frantzen; and six sisters and 2 brothers.

Adela graduated from Fredericksburg High School in 1938. She attended Santa Rosa Hospital School of Nursing in San Antonio, Texas, and graduated November 4, 1942. Adela served in the U.S. Army 34th Evacuation Hospital as a 1st Lt. from December 1, 1942, to December 10, 1945. Adela also served in Normandy, Northern France, the UK, and Germany. She received the European African Middle Eastern Ribbon.

Adela was active in Hermann Sons, the Agriculture Heritage Center, and the Kendall County Fair Association. She worked at Hilltop Nursing and then Town and Country Nursing Home until she retired.

It is very hard to put into words a person's life and who they were. She was loved by so many and became "Oma" to most of Boerne. She gave of herself by giving to others and she was very talented with her embroidery work and definitely her baking. She was always a worker in all the organizations that she was involved in in Boerne. She experienced many things in her life and now we are sure she is either dancing or baking away.

The funeral of George Frosh
The remains of Mr. George Frosh arrived from Boerne, Tex., on the 12:50 train yesterday, and will be conveyed to the home of the dead at 9 o'clock this morning.  The funeral services will be held at this hour at the family residence, corner of Tremont and Broadway.
      Mr. Frosh was born in Galveston in the year 1842, and has lived in the Island city, it may b e said, all of his life. During the late war he was a gallant soldier in the Twenty-first Texas cavalry, in the Trans-Mississippi department.  He was wounded in a skirmish just preceding the battles of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill, in Louisiana.  Recovering from his injury, he rejoined his regiment and remained with it until the surrender.  Upon the close of hostilities, he returned to Galveston where he lived until the disease consumption, which caused his death, and which was super-induced by exposure, began to tell upon him, when he went to Western Texas.   For the past five or six years he has lived at Fredericksburg, San Antonio and Boerne, until December last, when he came home and remained until a week ago.  Then he went back to Boerne, but the change did him no good and he yielded the struggle for life after battling long and bravely for its continuance.  Mr. Frosh was by those who knew him esteemed for generous qualities of head and heart, and by his companions in arms he was admired for his bravery, dash, and gallantry, and for all the qualities of manhood which go to make a man like among men.  Faults he had, but they were no more than other man have, and in the balance, his good traits far outweighed his weaknesses.  He was long a sufferer, and now that the end has come all that his friends are able to do is to tenderly lay him away, placing immortelles on the sod above him, and comforting the stricken mother and sisters with that heart sympathy which says: “Honor to him was was brave, who was true, tender, and who loved his friends.” (The Galveston Daily News, Galveston, Tex, Jul 19, 1884)

Death of Peter Gongler
Another old landmark has passed away in the death of Mr. Peter Gongler, which occurred at Boerne, Tex, on Tuesday.  The remains were expected to arrive here last night for interment.  Mr. Gongler had been in bad health for some time past, and left Galveston but a few weeks ago to seek improvement from climate changes.  IT was thought then by his friends that the change was made too late in order to bring about the desired result.  He was accompanied on his last trip by his wife and son, Peter Gongler, Jr., who were with him at the time of his death, which was not unexpected.  The deceased, was one of the pioneers of Galveston, ranking among her oldest citizens.  By his thrift and industry, and honesty and integrity of character, he prospered with the general prosperity of the city, and always conducted a profitable business.  He leaves a widow and four sons, all of the boys grown except Joseph. His sons will continue the business their father so successfully inaugurated, now located on Market street, near Twentieth.  Immediately upon the receipt of the news of his father's death, Mr. Matt Gongler left for Boerne, and was expected to return by the late train last night with the remains.  The funeral has been arranged to take place today from the family residence, corner of Fifteenth and Market.  Mrs. Stork, a sister of Mrs. Gongler, arrived yesterday from New Orleans to be present at the obsequies.  (The Galveston Daily News, Galveston, Tex, Oct 28, 1887 - vm)

The young lady became entangled in the rope attached to the horse, and was dragged over the ground at a furious rate.  Mr. Kargar witnessed the affair from his sick chamber, and, thinking to rescue his daughter from a frightful death, seized his rifle and shot the horse dead.  It was too late, for when the sick man hobbled to the spot where his child and horse lay, she was dead, her neck having been broken - [Chicago Times] - (Roanoke Daily Times, Roanoke, Va., April 16, 1890 - Transcribed by Veneta McKinney)

Miss ERNESTINE KUTZER Shot to Death by Young Man Whom She Was About to Marry, the Latter Wounding Himself
Comfort. Tex., June 27. In the presence of the assembled wedding guests, at the home of his intended bride, Joe Reinhart, the man who was to have been married to her, shot and instantly killed Miss Ernestine Kutzer and then shot and probably fatally wounded himself.
      The tragedy was as terrible as it was unexpected. The hour for the ceremony was at hand, and the guests who had been bidden to the festival were assembled in the parlor of the home of the bride's father. Young Reinhart walked into the room where Miss Kutzer and the guests were assembled and drew a pistol from his pocket, leveling it at his sweetheart.
      She threw up a hand as if to ward off the danger and three shots were fired at her in rapid succession at close range. The first bullet entered her heart, killing her instantly. Reinhart then turned the pistol upon himself and fired two bullets into his own breast. One of them entered the left and the other the right side. He is not expected to survive.
      The cause of the tragedy is not known. The relations between the sweethearts have been typical of lovers, and the marriage was expected to be happy. The theory of the neighbors is that the young man was temporarily irresponsible. The families of the parties are among the best in this (Kendall) county, and the young people were highly respected and well liked (Bryan Morning Eagle, Bryan, Tex., June 28, 1906 - Transcribed by Veneta McKinney)

John S. Thompson Disappeared from Comfort, Tex. over Two Months Ago. Wife Lives In This City.
After several months' search by relatives and authorities of Kendall County for information that would lead to the whereabouts of John S. Thompson, a paperhanger and painter who lived in Comfort for several years, the body of the man, in a badly decomposed condition, was found yesterday morning by Otto Slack Jr. in a clump of bushes on his father's ranch a few miles from Comfort. The wife of Thompson is thought to be living in this city, and so effort is being made to locate her.
     Thompson, who was known in this city, disappeared from his home in Comfort, on July 14, and since his whereabouts became unknown several searching parties have been made up by citizens of that place, and long tours made of the surrounding country. The police of San Antonio have kept a lookout in this city for the missing man.
     Young Slack, who was driving some horses at the time, found the body by a mere chance. One of the horses in the herd persisted in running in and out the clump of bushes, and finally stood in the center of the clump until young Slack came to drive him on. The horse he was riding shied and refused to enter the bushes. The young man dismounted, and going to where the other horse stood, found the body, lying at full length fully clothed. He rode to Comfort and notified Constable Robert Stabmann, who with several other men, who knew Thompson, rode back to the scene.
     A pocketknife and some other articles found in the pockets were identified as belonging to Thompson by members of the party. The shoes and hat worn by the dead man bore the mark of a merchant in Comfort. The head, which in some manner had become severed from the body, was found several feet away, in the edge of the clump of bushes.
      After examining the corpse and removing the articles from the pockets, Constable Slahmann immediately notified Sheriff Sauer at Boerne, who is investigating with hopes of finding some clue that may lead to the cause of death.
Besides his widow, Thompson is survived by two daughters, one living in California, and at the time of his disappearance she came to Comfort and aided in her father's search, which covered a large area of Kendall County. [San Antonio Express, Sept. 30, 1920  - AJ, Sub by FoFG]
