      OLIVER H. CRAMER, 83, SUCCOMBS TO HEART ATTACK NEAR LINEBORO

      LINEBORO, Md. \endash  A heart attack, suffered as he was preparing to retire, proved fatal to Oliver H. Cramer at 10 o'clock this evening at the home of his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. John E. Shaffer, near here. He was 83 years old.
      Coroner L. U. Zech was notified and will issue the death certificate tomorrow. Mr. Cramer had been suffering from a heart condition for some time, although he had been able to be about. Today he and the rest of the family had entertained some guests. Shortly after they left this evening he began preparations to retire when he was suddenly stricken. Dr. W. P. McKnight, Glenville, was summoned to the home, but death occurred before he arrived.

      Mr. and Mrs. Cramer had been making their home with the son-in-law and daughter for the past two years. Previously they resided in Glen Rock where Mr. Cramer conducted a grocery and butcher business. He was a member of the Lutheran Congregation of Stone Church, the Glen Rock Hose and Ladder Company and the Fireman's Relief Association.
      Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Mary Krebs Cramer; the daughter with whom he resided; a foster son, Levi W. Bubb, Baltimore, and two sisters, Mrs. Amelia Dietz, York, and Mrs. Rebecca Rohrbaugh, Millers, Md.

      The funeral will be held Wednesday with brief services at the Shaffer home at 1:30 p.m. and further services at Stone Church. Rev. K. S. Ehrhart, Lutheran pastor, will officiate. Interment will be made in the cemetery adjoining the church. Funeral Director G. W. Geiple and Son, Glen Rock, have charge of arrangements.
