I'm the RootsWeb obituary look-up volunteer for the Morning Call newspaper of Allentown, Pennsylvania. Back in July of 2005, someone named Ann, whose e-mail address at that time was AERmailbox@aol.com
, was looking for a Francis Ehrich who died between 1950 and 1965. I finally found the obit, but her e-mail address is no longer valid. I'm putting the obituary here in the hopes that either Ann finds it, or one of the rest of you has been in contact with her and can let her know it's here.
Francis A. Ehrich, 728 N. 31st St., died suddenly yesterday afternoon in the Sacred Heart hospital where he was taken after being stricken ill during the morning. He was 51 years old. Born in Coplay, he was a son of Sigmund and the late Theresa (Wexler) Ehrits. Mr. Ehrich was a graduate of Penn State college school of engineering and was employed as a serviceman in the commercial refrigeration and air conditioning department of the Allen Refrigeration Co. He had been residing in Allentown for the last 22 years and was married to the former Dorothy S. Butz. Surviving in addition to his wife and father are three brothers, Joseph F. and John, Coplay R. 1; and Edward, Mertztown R. 1; and two sisters, Rose, Coplay R. 1; and Pauline, wife of Edward Smarsley, Coplay.
