Annie Olive, daughter of C. W. and Rachel Boyer Connley, was born October 12, 1884 at Parker Prairie. She departed this life June 15, 1962 at the age of 77 years, 8 months and 3 days. On June 8, 1902, she was united in marriage to Charles Beasley, who preceded her in death November 7, 1959. To this union were born 11 children, three sons who died in infancy and the following children surviving: Mrs. Edith Nidy, Casey, Mrs. Hazel Ramsey, Martinsville, Mrs. Muril Larrison, Robinson, Mrs. Evely Handley, Casey, Lester Beasley, Indianapolis, Ind., Mrs. Marjorie Comer, Martinsville, Leon Beasley, Casey and Loren Beasley, Terre Haute, Ind. Two sisters, mrs. Allie Thompson, Carlisle, ind., and Mrs. Opal Doublas, Casey. There are 25 grandchildren, three step-grandchildren, and 27 great grandchildren surviving also.

She was converted at the age of 12 and was a member of the Washington M. E. Church for many years. Later, she became a member of Mt. Olive Congregational Christian Church and was faithful in attendance until recently when her health no longer permitted her to attend. She was known as "Grandma Beasley" to her family and friends and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her. However, her Christian influence will live on in the hearts of many people.
