Plane Wreck Takes Live of Mr. Mrs. Gene Weil; Mrs. Parker Thompson's Sister
In less than a week after Mrs. Parker Thompson and her twin sister, Mrs.
Eugene Weil, had returned home from a trip to Europe which they made by jet
plane, Mrs. Weil and her husband lost their lives in the wreck of a light
plane near Bridgeport, Conn. They were enroute to Bridgeport to spend the
fourth of July holidays with their son, Phillip, and his wife and two
daughters. Mrs. Thompson was informed of their deaths Saturday night. Their
plane had been missing since Friday.
According to reports the rented plane of the Weils crashed and burned on a
farm about two miles west of Schenectady, N. Y. Deputies said a farmer told
them he saw a flash Friday night, but decided it was too foggy to investigate.
They quoted him as saying he searched the farm Saturday and found the wreckage
and the bodies of Eugene P. Weil, 54, and his wife, Wallace, 51. The
Weils were residents of Cleveland, Ohio. Mrs. Weil, the former Wallace
McAnally, was born and reared at Winnfield. Mr. Weil was a radio station
executive. They made their home in New Orleans for many years before going to
Alabama and later to Ohio.
Memorial services for Mr. and Mrs. Weil will be held in Bridgeport, Conn.,
Sunday, July 10. Mrs. Parker Thompson left Winnfield Wednesday afternoon to
attend the last rites.
The Weils are survived by their one son, Phillip, of Bridgeport and two
granddaughters. Mrs. Weil leaves three sisters, Mrs. Thompson, her twin, of
Winnfield; Mrs. Edith Patrick of McGhee, Ark., and Mrs. Madge McAnally Polly
of California. Mr. Weil is survived by his mother, Mrs. Weil, and a brother,
F. Weil, both of Birmingham, Ala.
