    FROM THE DuBOIS COURIER EXPRESS dated 7 May 1947:
    Mrs. Joe Dungey, Old Resident Dies Early Today
    Death came to another long time resident of DuBois this morning when Mrs. Christina 
    Dungey, of 506 Locust Street, died at her home after an illness of a month due to 
    complications. Death occurred at 7:10 o'clock.
    Mrs. Dungey, who was the widow of the late Joseph Dungey, had been a resident of 
    DuBois for 67 years and was one of that dwindling group of persons who went through 
    the big fire of June 18, 1888. She had joined the other citizens in fighting the 
    flames at that time and pumped water for men to use in their efforts to stem the 
    progress of the flames.
    Mrs. Dungey had been a member of the Presbyterian Church since childhood and had been 
    active in church as well as neighborhood affairs. She enjoyed a wide circle of 
    friendship and was held in high esteem by her friends.
    Mrs. Dungey was born on August 1, 1871, at Sugar Hill, Schuylkill County, making her 
    75 years of age. She was the daughter of Robert and Martha (Wilson) Davie who brought 
    her to DuBois when she was eight years of age.
    Her husband died in 1919, while one son and a daughter also preceded her in death. 
    She is survived by three sons, Frank and Herbert, of DuBois; and Robert, of Detroit, 
    and a daughter, Mrs.Martha Thomas, with whom she made her home. Two sisters, 
    Mrs.Martha Woodman, of DuBois, and Mrs. George McQuire, of Ebeneezer, N. Y., as well 
    as 13 grandchildren and two great grandchildren also survive. One grandson, Donald 
    Houser, is a Machinist's Mate aboard the Aircraft Carrier Shangra La, in the South 
    Pacific.
    Funeral services are to be held on Friday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock (daylight saving 
    time) at the Moore Funeral Chapel, with Rev. Howard Tucker officiating, and burial 
    will be made in Rumbarger Cemetery. Friends will be received at the Moore Chapel from 
    7 to 9 o'clock this evening, from 2 to 4 and from 7 to 9 on Thursday, and on Friday 
    until funeral time.
