The Springs Valley Herald (November 11, 1992) reported "We come today to honor and respect Cloe Anna (Lane) Beatty, who has lived and served through most of a century. She was born the eighth of ten children on November 9, 1895 in the home of Thomas and Rachel (Hobson) Lane. The parents and her brothers Willie, Claude, Sampson and Noble, and her sisters Lucy Rogers, Maude Beatty, Pearle Briner, Grace Burch, and Ruth Sturm preceded her in death. With the passing of Aunt Cloe we can say with the poet Holmes,

And if I should live to be
The last leaf upon the tree
In the spring let them smile, as I do now
At the old forsaken bough where I cling.

And so her life has been a mosaic of joy and sadness and her relatives and friends have been shining jewels along the way. On September 20, 1916, she was married to William Harrison Beatty and this union was blessed with the birth of one son, William Harrison Beatty, Jr. Her life was also enriched by the birth of three grandchildren, William H. Beatty III, Charles T. Beatty, and Anna (Beatty) Shearer, as well as one great-granddaughter, Emily Shearer. Her husband passed away in 1956, her son in 1986, and her oldest grandson in 1987. Having been reared in a Christian home, she joined the South Liberty Church of Christ at an early age. In December 1918 she transferred her membership to the First Christian Church of French Lick. She continued to be active in her community as long as health permitted. She was a member of the French Lick Literary Club, a charter member of A.C. Chapter PEO Sisterhood, the Loyal Workers class of Beechwood Christian Church, and the Melton Public Library Board. As the years passed, it became necessary for Aunt Cloe to move to the Kennedy Living Center in Martinsville, Indiana. On October 28, she just went to sleep, for she had lived almost a century. Survivors include her daughter-in-law, two grandchildren, one great-granddaughter, and several nieces and nephews. Years are fleeting and a brief history of a great life is so soon written on paper, but the influence and example of the life of Cloe Anna Beatty will last throughout Eternity and the world is a better place because she lived, worked, loved, and now is at peace."
