Madison County

Death: Feb. 10, 1922
Tioga County

She was the daughter of Truman Payne and Olive Damon. She married William Lyman Beebe on Dec. 18, 1890.


Mrs. May A Beebe, wife of W. L. Beebe and affectionately known as "Ma" passed from this life on Friday evening, February 10, 1922. Mrs. Beebe had been in failing health for some time and the shock resulting from the fire which destroyed the home of her son a few weeks ago finally resulted in her death. "Ma" Beebe was born at West Eaton on April 14, 1870. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Truman Payne of that place. She was married to W L Beebe in 1890, they came to Candor with their family in 1899 and have been honored and esteemed residents of the community for the past twenty-three years. She was for many years a member of the Baptist Church of this Village and was actively interested in the work of the greatest Mother, The Red Cross. Many were the hearts that were sad as the news of her passing became known. For by her genial personality, her cheery and optimistic outlook upon life, "Ma" had endeared herself to all whose privilege it was to know her. Many a burden will be a little more heavy, many a day a little more cloudy for lack of her cheery work and loving interest. Yet she has not entirely gone from our lives, for the memory of the life among us will always be very helpful. To us she is not dead--just a little way on before. She is survived by her husband and two children, a daughter, Mrs. L W Stevens of Knoxville, PA., a son, C Arthur Beebe of Candor. Funeral services were held at the home on Monday afternoon at two o'clock, conducted by the Rev. Egbert Kilpatrick of Candor assisted by the Rev. W H Stevens of Waterloo, N.Y. Those in attendance from out of town were: Mr. and Mrs. L W Stevens of Knoxville PA., Mrs. W Southworth of Binghamton, Mrs. G L Smith of New York City, Mrs. W F Carpenter of Ithaca, Mrs. J D Baylor of Danby, Mrs. John H Machan of Waverly.
