Fox, Mannie – Obituary

Sudden Death of Mannie Fox

Seized With Acute Indigestion Dies at Home of Sister

Mannie Fox, a pioneer of Baker coming here when a mere boy, died suddenly last evening at 4:30 o’clock at the home of his sister, Mrs. Mose Fuchs, 2500 Main street from acute indigestion, the first symptoms being manifest about 2 o’clock and his death when it became known was received with expressions of sorrow throughout the community, for the deceased was a very loveable character, kindly, sympathetic and charitable.

Mannie Fox was born in Portland, March 22, 1862, and came to Baker in 1876, entering the employ of the pioneer mercantile house of Baer and Bloch, that latter being his brother-in-law. When the firm went out to business he opened a cigar store and conducted this for many years. He then went into the taxi business and in this he was engaged at the time of his death. He was a member of the Elks, in which order he carried Card NO. 1 as a charter member of Baker Lode No. 336. He was also a member of the Woodmen of the World. During the early days of the city he was a member of Baker’s volunteer fire department. He had great civic ideals and was always found ready to lend his efforts to community benefit.

He is survived by three sisters, Mrs. Jennie Bloch and Mrs. Minnie Biederman of San Francisco and Mrs. Mose Fuchs of this city.

The body will be shipped to Portland Wednesday night. It has been announced the flowers are not acceptable.
