Mrs. William Beck Dies At Age 87; Rites Wednesday
Mrs. William (Cecilla) Beck of 102 Harrison street, a beloved lady in the life of Rensselaer community, where most of her lifetime was spent, died in Jsper county hospital at 9:55 p.m. Saturday, a few days before she would have observed her eithy-eighth birthday anniversary. She had been in steadily declining health for nine months of complications resulting from advanced age.

She was educated in Jasper county schools and on Jume 17, 1901, she was married at St. Augustine church to William Beck, who died December 27, 1958. With the exception of two years when her home was in Terre Haute, all of her lifetime was lived in this community.
The immediate survivors are a daughter, Mrs. Joseph (Cecillia ) Ferguson, of Rensselaer; four grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; two sisters, Mrs. Lucy Walter of Rensselaer and Mrs. Anna Kelper of Plymouth, and a brother, Donnelly of Rensselaer.
