      HARVARD -- The funeral of Mrs. Florence B. (Schofield) Steadman, of Depot Road, 42-year-old mother of four who was accidentally killed by her 13-year-old son in their Still River home at 1:45 p. m. Saturday, will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. in the Congregational Church. Burial will be in Belleview Cemetery.

      Police said Mrs. Steadman was instantly killed when a bullet from a .22 calibre rifle struck her in the heart. The dead woman was lying on a bed in her bedroom when the shot was fired from the adjoining living room, according to Police Chief William E. Burgess.

      The woman's son, Ernest, according to Chief Burgess, picked up the gun which had been left at the home by a friend and opened the breech thinking it was unloaded. He closed the breech and pulled the trigger. The shot passed through the open doorway and stuck the boy's mother.

      Police said the rifle was one of two guns belonging to  David THompson, an acquaintance of the dead woman's husband. Thompson and Mr. Steadman had been hunting together earlier in the day and the guns were left at the Steadman home.

      Mrs. Steadman was taken to Clinton Hospital where an autopsy will be held at a later date.

      He was assited in the investigation by state Police Det. Lt. John Carney, Sqt. James Baker and Trooper Richard Brennan of the District Attorney's Office and Troopers Albert J. Welcome and William W. Mann of the Leominster Barracks.

      Mrs. Steadman was a former employe of the Industrial School for Girls in Lancaster.
