Spencer - Funeral services will be conducted at the Fred Schwantes home at 1:30 p.m. and at the Evangelical Lutheran church at 2 p.m. on Monday for Mrs. Fred Schwantes, 66, who died at her home here Thursday night.

The Rev. A. C. Stapel will officiate at the rites Monday and burial will take place in the North cemetery.
