      YOAKUM -- Mrs. Frances A. Makovy, 76, longtime resident of Yoakum, was found burned to death in her burning home about 11 a.m. Wednesday.
       
      Her body was found after an alarm had been turned in by neighbors.  Mrs. Makovy lived alone.
       
      Matt Chudej, Lavaca County justice of the peace, returned at verdict of death due by fire caused accidentally.  Mrs. Makovy's body was found three or four feet from an open space heater.  Fire Chief Elmer Hanna said that apparently her clothing had become ignited from the fire.
       
      The body of Mrs. Makovy was found in a bedroom.  However, the house was not badly damaged by the fire, with most of the damage confined to the one room and the attic.
       
      Mrs. Makovy was born Oct. 16, 1890 in Lavaca County.
       
      Rosary will be recited at 7:30 p.m . Thursday at Buffington Funeral Home Chapel.  Funeral services will be held at 9 a.m. Friday at the chapel, and at 9:15 a.m. at St. Joseph's Catholic Church.  Burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery.
       
      Her husband died in 1949.
       
      Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. Frank Albrecht of Yoakum, Mrs. Lillian Labuda of Kingsville and Mrs. George Bowman of Agua Dulce; two sons, Robert of Seguin, and Leonard of Agua Dulce and 16 grandchildren.
