Oklahoma, USA

Funeral services for Mr. and Mrs. Perry Beebe, murder-suicide victims, were conducted at 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon from the Silent Home church near Roll with Rev. Veecher in charge.
The double tragedy was the outgrowth of a quarrel between the pair that originated Saturday night downtown, according to Neville Gillum, county attorney. Mr. and Mrs. Beebe were said to have been arguing bitterly when they retired late Saturday night and again at 5 o'clock the next morning when Beebe arose.
Beebe is said to have left the house on the east edge of the city. His wife followed him through the front door, Gillum continued. Beebe reached inside his car, parked near the house, withdrew a revolver and sent a bullet through Mrs. Beebe's body just below the heart. She died instantly. Then he held the weapon to his head and pressed the trigger. He died a little over two hours later in the local hospital.
No coroner's inquest was held. Gillum and Sheriff Earl Francis returned a murder-suicide verdict after an investigation.
Beebe, a burial insurance salesman, is survived by three sons by a former marriage and a daughter, Mrs. Helen Grim, Sayre, and a brother, Worth Beebe, Cheyenne.
Mrs. Beebe leaves her mother, Mrs. Georgia Brown, Cheyenne; three daughters by a former marriage, Izetta and Genevieve Webb and Mrs. Beatrice Abshire, all of Sayre, and one son, George; three brothers, Hester Brown, Port Arthur, Texas; Claud Brown, Cheyenne and Floyd Brown, Alma, Texas, and two sisters, Mrs. Artie Wright, Crawford, and Mrs. Lillie Hollis, Ponca City.

Interment was made by Littrell-Scroggins at the Silent Home Cemetery, Roll, Roger Mills County, Oklahoma.
