McGREEVY, Francis Joseph

"Frank McGreevy Killed By Bandit-Former Westernporter Was Shot In His Lunch Room Near Irwin, Pa.-Frank J. McGreevy, aged 38 years, a native of Westernport, was shot and instantly killed by a bandit in a hold-up of his lunch room near Irwin, Pa., early last Friday morning. Three bandits, each about 20 years old, entered the barbecue stand shortly before 1 o'clock. Patrons were seated at tables in a room adjoining the lunchroom, and the trio delayed giving their orders for food until the other visitors departed. McGreevy became suspicious and went outside to obtain the license number of their automobile. He gave the number to his wife, Mrs. A. Ella McGreevy, 36, formerly of Hancock, Md., and told her to remember it, as she might have cause to use it later. Mrs. McGreevy and the couple's two children, Donald J., aged eight, and Frank, Jr., 14, retired soon afterward and were in bed when the shooting occurred. John A. Keplar, of McKeesport, whose wife, Mrs. Margaret Keplar, is employed at the barbecue, told police that his wife went to the kitchen to prepare the order for the three men and that he was standing in the doorway between the kitchen and the lunchroom when McGreevy was shot down. The bandits took $6 from the cash register and fled in a stolen car. Besides his widow and children, McGreevy is survived by his mother, Mrs. Nannie McGreevy, of Cumberland; by four brothers, D. Arnold and Bernard V. McGreevy, both of Cumberland; Owen P. McGreevy, of Westernport; and Thomas L. McGreevy, of Cleveland, Ohio, and by two sisters, Mrs. Norman E. Sell, of Cumberland, and Mrs. C. A. McMurrer, Charleston, W. Va. The remains were brought to his mother's home at 224 Avirett Avenue, Cumberland, and the funeral service was held Monday morning at St. Patrick's Catholic Church, that city. Interment was in the church cemetery."

The investigation is being continued. Crites, Lt. Johnston said, told him he was headed north on Virginia Avenue when the child left the store on the west side of the street and ran from behind a bus into the path of his car. The child was admitted to the hospital at 1:55 p.m. Dr. A. J. Mirkin performed an emergency laparotomy but the girl died later. Her other injuries included abrasions on the left side of the forehead, face, chest, right arm, and knees and cuts on the left side of the scalp.
