Ambold obituaries of Richmond, Virginia, a miscellaneous collection

Richmond Times-Dispatch, Saturday, May 30, 1942:
"MRS ADA E. AMBOLD - Mrs. Ada Elizabeth Ambold, of 2611 Parkwood Avenue, died at 5:30 P. M. Friday at a local hospital.  Surviving are two daughters, Miss Blanche Ambold and Mrs. A. L. Wilkinson; a brother, Harry L. Jarvis, and a sister, Mrs. L. Vass.  Funeral services will be held at 3 P. M. Sunday at Byrd Park Methodist Church, with burial in Hollywood Cemetery."

Ada is buried in section 23, lot 114 of Hollywood Cemetery.  I have visited the site and it appears that she does not have a tombstone.

Richmond Times-Dispatch, February 9, 1970:
"AMBOLD - Died February 7, 1970, Miss Laura Blanche Ambold of 1105 Granite Avenue.  The remains rest at the Joseph W. Bliley Funeral Home, 3rd and Marshall Streets where the funeral will be held today (Monday) at 3:30 P.M.  Interment in Riverview.

Blanche is buried in plat C, section 14, division 16, grave 5 of Riverview Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia.

Richmond Times-Dispatch, May 18, 1964:
"WILKINSON - Died at a local hospital Friday, May 15, 1964, Mrs. Lillian Ambold Wilkinson of 1105 Granite Ave. and widow of A. Linwood Wilkinson.  She is survived by 1 sister, Miss Blanche Ambold.  Remains rest at the Joseph W. Bliley Funeral Home, Third and Marshall Sts., where the funeral will be held Monday at 12 noon.  Interment in Riverview."

Lillian is buried in plat C, section 14, division 16, grave 4 of Riverview Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia.

Richmond Times-Dispatch, April 20, 1931:
"FRANKE LEE COLEMAN - Funeral services for Frank Lee Coleman, 28, of 3314 Parkwood Avenue, who died in a local hospital Saturday, will be held at 3 o'clock this afternoon from his residence with burial in Riverview Cemetery.  He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Lillian Coleman; his mother, Mrs. W. W. Coleman of Blackstone; four brothers, H. N. and W. H. Coleman of Blackstone, H. H. Coleman of Victoria, Ontario and C. A. Coleman of Richmond; four sisters, Mrs. B. A. Webster and Mrs. L. B. Chumney of Blackstone and Mrs. H. L. Upson and Mrs. Pauline Coleman of Richmond."

Frank apparently died during, or immediately following, an attempt to remove a brain tumor from his left frontal lobe.  He was buried in plat P, section 18, division 2, grave 2 of Riverview Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia.

Richmond Times-Dispatch, March 31, 1953:
"ALVIN L. WILKINSON - Alvin Linwood Wilkinson, 53, of 5808 Pollard Drive, a retired member of the traffic division of the Richmond Police Department, died Monday at a Richmond hospital.  Funeral arrangements had not been completed last night.  Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Lillian Arnold Wilkinson, and his mother, Mrs. Gertrude Allen Wilkinson."

Richmond Times-Dispatch, April 1, 1953:
"WILKINSON - Died at a local hospital, March 30, 1953, Alwin Linwood Wilkinson, of 5808 Pollard Drive.  He is survived by his wife, Lilliam Ambold Wilkinson; his mother, Gertrude Allen Wilkinson of Richmond.  The remains rest at the Joseph W. Bliley Funeral Home, Third and Marshall, where services will be held Wednesday at 4 P. M.  Interment in Riverview."

Alwin is buried in plat C, section 14, division 16, grave 2 of Riverview Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia.  I believe it is a Masonic symbol that is on his tombstone.
