Mrs. E.A. Beaman Called By Death, Services Sunday at the Residence
Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Beaman, 64 years of age, a resident of Boone county since 1890, passed away at her home west of Lebanon in rural route eleven Thursday night at 7:30 o'clock. She had been ill with diabetes the last seven years and three weeks ago suffered an attack of influenza which developed into pneumonia last Tuesday and resulted in her death. Mrs. Beaman was born in a one-room sod dugout home on a prairie near Keokuck, Iowa, the daughter of Alexander and Sarah E. Quearry. She often recounted interesting tales of her early life on the prairie among the Indians. She was married in Clyde, Kansas, November 7, 1887, to E.A. Beaman who survives. Her husband was merchant patrolman in this city for many years until ill health forced his retirement. The family moved here forty-two years ago. Mrs. Beaman was first of all a kind and loving wife and mother and good neighbor and next among her interests were her flower garden and flock of fine poultry. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church in Kansas and of the Ruth Rebekah Lodge in this city. Surviving her are the husband, E.A. Beaman; one son, Frank L. Beaman, two sisters, Mrs. Ella Dawson of Ames, Kansas and four grandchildren, Mrs. Marie Behymer, Fay, Pansy and Blanche Beaman. One son, Samuel, and a sister, Miss Emma Quearry, are deceased. Funeral services will be held at the residence Sunday afternoon at two o'clock with the Rev. E.D. Wright officiating. Burial will be in Pleasant View cemetery. Neighbors and friends are invited to attend the services.
