ELLA (REINTS) BECK , was born January 17, 1828 in Neermoor Amt Leer, East Friesland, Germany, and departed this life in peace near Brookville, Illinois May 13, 1907, at the age of seventy-nine years, three months and twenty-seven days. Mother Beck came to America in 1847, settling in the vicinity of Mt. Morris where she made her home until the year 1849, when she was united in holy matrimony with Geo. Beck. They then located at the late home where Mother Beck resided until death. This union was blessed with ten children, the husband and four children preceding to the spirit world. Six children, two grandchildren, one sister, three brothers and a large circle of friends remain to mourn. Sister Beck was converted in 1850 under the labors of Rev. Geo. Blank and became a member of the Evangelical Association. Her memory is blessed. She rests from her labors and her works do follow. She passed away in peace surrounded by her loved ones. The funeral services were conducted at the late home by Rev. W. A. Shultz. His text was John 14: 1 and 2, "Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. IN my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you."
