PALMYRA - Carrie Beamesderfer, 68, of 205 W. Main St. died Saturday in Good Samaritan Hospital, Lebanon. She was left paralyzed after contracting polio when she was 2 years old, and was known to Palmyra residents by the nickname "Carrie on the Wagon" because she used a modified wooden express wagon to travel throughout the community. Despite her handicap, she was an active member of Trinity United Church of Christ, its Ladies Sunday school class and Women's Guild and was chairman of the church Prayer Chain. She also was a member of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and the Ladies Auxiliary of Citizens Fire Company of Palmyra. She was a dedicated letter writer and corresponded with numerous pen pals in the midstate for many years. She has no survivors. Services will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday in her church with the Rev. Edward C. Charrot, her pastor, officiating. Burial will in Schaefferstown Cemetery. Friends may call at the Rothermel Funeral Home here from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday. Memorial contributions may be made to her church, South Railroad and West Pine streets, Palmyra 17078. [Patriot-News, Harrisburg, PA, February 15, 1987]
