NORWICH – A fire that took the life of a Norwich man Sunday claimed the life of his wife Thursday morning after she succumbed to her injuries.



Ida M. Loomis, 80, Norwich, passed away Thursday morning. She had been listed in critical condition at the University Hospital in Syracuse since Norwich firefighters carried her out of the family’s burning trailer at about 3 p.m. Sunday. Loomis lived with her husband and daughter in the Maple Grove Trailer Park, 157 Bourbon St., Norwich.

Crews were unable to retrieve Donald K. Loomis, 79, from the blaze and his body was later recovered in the wreckage.
