      Funeral services for Frank Krejci, 88, resident of this area more than 50 years, were held Saturday afternoon, Nov. 10, at Hubbard Funeral Home, with burial in the Masonic Cemetery.
       
      Rev. George E. Fuchs, pastor of Weimar United Church of Christ, officiated.  Special music was rendered by the church choir and Robert Hilscher of Houston.
       
      Mr. Krejci suffered a heart attack at his home in the Borden community Thursday morning and died at 7:30 p.m. that night in Youens Hospital.
       
      Born Oct. 12, 1874, in Czechoslovakia, he emigrated to this country in 1905, his ship landing at Galveston.;  There he married Miss Tillie Valenta in 1906, and they moved to a farm near Weimar in 1911.  In 1956 they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary at their farm, with many relatives and friends attending.
       
      Nine children were born to the Krejcis, 6 of them surviving to adulthood.  It was the chief ambition of both Mr. and Mrs. Krejci to give their children the higher education which had been denied the parents, and through diligent effort this ambition was realized.
       
      Two of the children died as infants and a daughter, Martha, died at the age of 12.  Flight Officer Frank J. Krejci Jr. died in an airplane crash in 1943 at the age of 23.  A daughter, Mrs. Mary Suler of Richmond, died at the age of 40.
       
      Surviving Mr. Krejci in addition to his widow are 4 children, Dr. Joe C. Krejci of Phillips, Mrs. O. R. (Tillie) Helmcamp and Mrs. Harley (Viola) Cox of Houston and Mrs. Andrew (Alice) Braikovich of Galveston; 8 grandchildren, Fay Deen Krejci, student at Texas Tech, Mary Joe Krejci of Phillips, Mrs. Abraham Hochman of Rosenberg, Frank Suler, instructor at the University of Houston, Jeannette Helmcamp, student at the University of Houston, Ronald Braikovich of Galveston and Bonnie Sue and Donald Cox of Houston; and 7 great-grandchildren.
