      RETIRED TEACHER FOUND DEAD OF BURNS IN APARTMENT
      The body of a retired Dubuque school teacher, who apparently died of burns received when her nightgown caught fire, was found in her apartment Sunday night by police. The police were called by relatives when they could not enter the house.
      She was Mrs. Minna Roedell, 73, 2665 White St., who, according to neighbors, had not been seen since Wednesday.
      Dr. Clarence Darrow, Dubuque Co. coroner, said she may have been dead since that time. He said she died of third degree burns.
      Reconstructing the tragedy, Dr. Darrow said her nightgown may have been ignited when she struck a match to light a cigarette.Shreds of her gown were found in a pail of water in which she attempted to douse the flames before she collapsed and died.
      Relatives from Cuba City, Wis., called the police when they failed to get an answer to their knocks on the door.
      Friends may call at the Haudenshield Funeral Home, 2170 Central Ave., where services will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday. The Rev. Harold Thomas, of the First Baptist Church, will officiate, burial will be in Linwood Cemetery.
      Mrs. Roedell, widow of Alfred Roedell, was born March 8, 1884, near Cassville, Wis.
