    [Gloversville - A 39-year old widow and mother apparently shot herself to death Saturday after trying to kill a man friend in a bedroom of his home, authorities said yesterday. Sheriff's deputies said it appeared the woman used the same shotgun with which her husband killed himself last year. Dist. Atty. H Andrew Schlusberg said the wounding Saturday of Patrick Buanno, 45, and the death of Mrs. Philomena Fonda of nearby Johnstown apparently was a case of attempted murder and suicide. Buanno was reported in fair condition at Nathan Littauer hospital where he was undergoing treatment for shotgun wounds in the abdomen and right hand. Schlusberg said Buanno told police that Mrs. Fonda came to his home and entered his bedroom, carrying the shotgun. After a brief quarrel, he said, she shot him and he ran from the house to a brother's home across the street to call police. Police found Mrs. Fonda's body in the living room of Buanno's home. Schlusberg said it appeared that she had placed the shotgun under her chin and fired. The Fulton County sheriff's office said Mrs Fonda's husband, Melvin, killed himself in June 1962, apparently with the same gun. The couple had two teenaged sons. Utica NY Daily Press, Monday, September 2, 1963]; [...Mrs. Fonda was born in Fonda on Sept. 15, 1924, a daughter of Joseph and Irene Mezzio Conte and had lived in Johnstown since August of 1962.
