Old Time Lumber-Camp Cook Succumbs Suddenly to Apoplexy

   Frank Morton Hetherington, 55, old-time lumber-camp cook, and resident of Gladwin county since 1895, died suddenly Friday at his home, the victim of an apoplectic stroke.

   He was a member of the A. O. O. G. and of the I. O. O. F. By trade he was a cook, and he and Mrs. Hetherington have been cooks in several camps, among them being the Hardy Dam in Newyago county, and of late he has been employed at the CCC camp. He was at home for the week, and had just finished the stone veneer on his house, and in less than two hours he was found dead in the yard, a stroke of apoplexy causing instant death. He has been a respected citizen of the county and has many neighbors, friends and relatives who mourn his death.

   Funeral services were conducted from the house and from the McClure church Monday afternoon by Elder Hubert Case of the Latter Day Saint Diocese, assisted by the pastor, Rev. Margaret F. Nash. The church choir furnished the music, singing two numbers, “Just Lean Upon Jesus,” and “It is Well with My Soul.” Burial was in the McClure cemetery.

   Frank Hetherington was born January 31, 1879, in Canada. He came to Gladwin county when he was a lad of 16, and has lived here ever since. April 30, 1899 he married Maude Arnott. Three children were born, two of whom survive: Mrs. Julie Marshall of Flint and Arthur, of Gladwin. Stanley died at the age of 18 months.

   Besides his widow and five grandchildren, he also leaves one brother, Phil Hetherington of Winegars, and three sisters, Mrs. Ethel Peters and Mrs. Gertrude Breault of Gladwin and Mrs. Harriett Peters of Ortonville.
