Chinese Centralist Daily News -- September 24, 1937Mr. Frak Moy's Funeral
Our general director of the Middle-Western Chinese Civilian Relief Association of Chicago, was taken by death on Sept. 17th, at 6 A.M.
The On-Liong Association has been in charge of his funeral and the service was held at 2 P.M. yesterday at the Chinese Presbyterian Church on 23rd and Wentworth Avenue.
The church was filled with funeral flowers. Every space was taken by the hundreds of relatives and friends, that was available, ( including his American friends.)
The services opened with a prayer by Rev. T. Y. Li, followed by a three minute meditation. Then a song was sung by the chorus and the reading of a brief biography of Mr. Frank Moy by the president of the On-Liong Association, Mr. Moy U-Cho, followed. Again a song of grievance.2
Then vice-president Mr. Li -Shen-Wei representing the On-Liong Association and the family of the deceased took lead in acknowledging their relatives and friends sympathies.
The service concluded with Rev. T. Y. Li leading the congregation past the coffin to pay their last respects to the deceased, Mr. Frank Moy.
Then the immediate relatives of Mr. Moy and the officers of the Qn-Leong Association escorted the coffin to the hearse. The funeral procession was formed with a special police patrol leading the hearse. Following immediately were his American wife, daughter, relatives and intimate friends. Then a long procession of both American and Chinese friends representing all Chinese Associations and clubs etc.
The prominent men present included Vice-consul Mr. Wang and Mr. H. Moy, representing the On-Liong Association of Washington, D.C.3
After reaching the Chinese cemetery, Rev. Li offered prayer and again relatives and friends paid their final respect by saluting the deceased, before burial.
The funeral procession numbered thousands and certainly the greatest ever seen.
We conclude, therefore, that the patriotism of the deceased and services rendered to his fellow-men have obviously commanded the respectful devotion of us all.
