DEATH OF MRS. FREDERICK BEELER
The death of Mrs. Nancy Beeler, widow of the late Frederick Beeler, occurred last Saturday morning of erysipelas of the face, at her late home in this city. The funeral services were held in the M.E. church Tuesday afternoon, and were conducted by the pastor, Rev. W.F. Pitner.
A quartet composed of Mrs. V.G. Shumack, Mrs. J.W. Bowman and Messrs. Tallman and Bromwell, furnished the music.
The following was read by Rev. Pitner:
Nancy Dollarhide was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, March 14th, 1821, was married to Mr. Frederick Beeler, Nov. 28th, 1837, and immediately accompanied her husband to Iowa, and settled on a farm four miles northwest of Marion, where they resided until the death of her husband, Feb. 12th, 1895, after which she spent some time with her daughters in California. Returning she made her home in this city, where she resided until her death which occurred on the 30th of December, 1899.
This happy union was blessed with seventeen children, fourteen of whom survive her, eight sons and six daughters. The eight sons and three daughters being present at the funeral.
Sister Beeler was the mother of a remarkable family. Remarkable as to the number; remarkable as to physial proportions; remarkable as to uniform moral excellence. No dwarf physically; no weakling mentally; no degenerate morally, is found in this large family of splendid manhood and womanhood.
Truly the father and mother of such a family, who fearing God and working righteousness, have stamped their individuality upon every child, teaching them all to love and reverence their creator, have reared for themselves a monument enduring as eternity. Was she a faithful wife? Was she a devoted, self-sacrificing mother? Was she a true follower of the Christ? Her husband, could he do so, would rise up and praise her.
Her children rise up and call her blessed. Her Master, saith "she hath done what she could."
These eight sons and six daughters, are so many monuments to her true nobleness of character. May they continue to be worthy sons and daughters of one of the best mothers ever given to a boy or girl.
