Title: Judy Kollmeyer Dies From Exhaust Fumes


The carbon monoxide death of a Farmington woman, discovered by neighbors Tuesday afternoon, has been ruled "not accidental" by Coroner Ted Boyer and no inquest will be conducted, since the death was obviously suicide.

Mrs. Harry (Judy) Kollmeyer was found dead sitting behind the wheel of her car in the closed garage at the family home at 625 Warren Street.

Sheriff Ken Buckley was called to the scene and entered the garage after neighbors observed the woman through a garage window. The neighbors had become alarmed when Mrs. Kollmeyer did not answer her phone earlier in the morning and afternoon and went to investigate at 1:30 p.m.

Farmington police said the car appeared to be out of gas and that the engine had overheated and boiled over onto the garage floor.

Mrs. Kollmeyer was last seen alive by friends who had visited at the home until about 9:30 Monday night.

The coroner said the woman appeared to have been dead about twelve hours when the body was discovered.

Jewell (Judy) Kollmeyer was born July 19, 1919, in Cape Girardeau, daughter of Mrs. Sadie Deevers Schwetman and the late Louis Henry Schwetman and died at her residence in Farmington, Nov. 22 (1966).

Surviving are: her husband, Harry W. Kollmeyer of Farmington; on son, Michael, a student at Westminister Collage, Fulton; her mother, Mrs. Sadie Schwetman, of Fredericktown; two sisters Marie Crane of Fort Smith, Ark. and Virginia Jones of Ala.; two brothers, Willard Schwetman of St. Louis and Bud Schwetman of Scott City.

The body will be in state at Miller Chapel after 2 p.m. Thursday. Funeral services will be Friday at 2 p.m. at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Farmington. Interment will be under direction of Miller Funeral Service.
