Robert Edward Lee Metz 74 '~rryville, Va., son of John W and Mary J. Metz a,nd Virgini,~ ]~izabeth Ramey, 61, widowed Charles Town, daughter of Wil- tiler and Ada Green. Mrs. Daisy D. Fritts From Page One ~rm for some years. EventuaJly the task became too great for her, however, and when the opportunity came to super- vise the County I,nfirmary, she took it. She also took her capable f~rm assistant with her to 0he h~me and it was at his deat~h some months ago that Mrs. Fritts decided it wins time for her to give up this job and begin taking ,~fe easy for a change. A wonderful lady in the truest sense of the word, Mrs. Fritts has, since she went to the County me, ~the mothered the inmates, but same time ;;he has been stern in governing them in what S~e believed to be right and wrong ~h~as maintaining a high order of ~[st~ipline at the home at all ~s. NUMBER VARIED The number of inmates at the has always varied from as as nine to as hig~h as 47. ~re are only nine at t2~e home now and every effort is being able to wait upon themselves. Ages of the present inmates 'ange from 65 to 95, with the old ~st there now being 94. Mrs. Yritts said. Many are the interesting stor- es which Mrs. Fritts tells about, ';he home a,ud tl]e inmates who ~'egarded it as their home. Some were amusing and some touching ~ut all interesting. Probably the mo~t interesting cases which Mrs. Fritts well re- members came to the home some :ears ago. and have long since died. One of the cases was a most pitiful one Mrs. Fritts explained, a, woman had invested all her money in a hotel in New York ~.nd during the depression she '~ad lost it all. Her husband had J.ied and she had no one to turn ;o. She arrived at the County Home with a big steamer trunk lnd possessions that showed c,lear y she had been a person of neans. She had no idea she was :pining into a County Home. 'When she learned the true story ~f where she was, she was terribly lepressed a,nd more or less fretted ~er life away. Then there was another case ',ontinued Mrs. Frills, where a roman came to the home, think- ng she had been sen,t to a rest, home for a period of two weeks. She enjoyed herself so thoroughly that she never bothered about leavinu thouch after a month she was fully aware ~hat she had been there more than the two weeks. She told Mrs. Frills she had always been somewhat of an "unwanted" wherever she had stayed before and now she was delighted to find out that at least I someone enjoyed her company and was interested in her. Had Religious Opportunities During Mrs. Fritts tenure of directkng the county home the in- mates did not at any time lack for religious opportunities and services. In the yard there is a small chapel where different denomin- ations would take turns admin- istering to the spiritual needs of the inmates. Also the inmates were reminded of the religious holidays as they came just as any other perse,n, the occasions being marked witch special religious services and pro- ~;rams in t'he chapel. There was members o'f the County Court: went to the home to have dinner with her. Four of Mrs. Fritts' five child- ren are living. They are; Mrs. Thomas Rissler, Bolivar; Mrs. Robert Blue, Charlesto,n; Marshall of Richmond, Vs. and Kenneth (~f Leetown. She also has t'hree brothers and one sister living. Mrs. Frills has indeed been a true and warm-hearted friend to these aged and homeless people and while she says she is going to miss them terribly, there is little doubt but that these people she has befriended a,nd cared for day after day, month after month and year after after year, will miss Miss Daisy even more.
