14.09.1965 looks like the death date was September 14, 1965 but that part is a no-brainer - I'm clueless about the rest of it.

Hi Gaile, thanks for your response! I should have been more specific. Locarno is a town in the italian speaking region of Switzerland and given date refers to date of death. However, "Amodio 206 f" is what I cannot understand what it makes reference to. Actually, "Amodio" is a family name but I do not see the connection to the person Eugen Lee-Stieger who died on September 14, 1965.

If we had the whole context of the death announcement it would help. I'm not sure if "Locarno" is a given name, a surname, or what have you, but I can tell you that the number with the dots is a date.

14.09.1965 = 14 September 1965.

Maybe Locarno is the name of the death place. There is a city in the Italian part of Switzerland named Locarno.

Hi Jelena, thanks for your response! Yes, you are correct, Locarno is the town where Eugen Lee-Stieger died on September 14, 1965. However, what I don't understand what "Amodio 206 f" stands for (actually, Amodio is an italian family name).

Thanks for your response! Locarno is a town located in the italian speaking region of Switzerland. And the date given, September 14, 1965 is the date of death. The person who died was Eugen Lee-Stieger. What I don't understand is the additional mentioning or its reference of "Amodio 206 f" (Amodio is an italian family name).

In the absence of actually seeing this document, I would say:

died in Locarno, September 14, 1965

The + is a cross, and means died.

Hi George, thanks for your response! And yes, you are correct. Eugen Lee-Stieger died in Locarno on September 14, 1965. What I don't understand is what Amonio 206 f refers to (Amonio is an italian family name).

Ok ... I do not have any ideas on the “Amodio 206 f” phrase, sorry.
No problem but thanks for trying to help out!

Could it be the reference to a cemetery lot?
