Mary Elizabeth(Taylor) Tillotson-Beach was born April 8,1863 in Kankakee,Ill.,and died May 31,1930 in the very frist minutes of the day after midnight of Paralysis amd complications at her home in Akron,Ia.

Mary married William Tillotson on June 10,1888(William is buried next to Mary on East side).
Married married Joseph Beach on Oct. 22,1895 in LeMars,IA. emailed the following article she found in the Akron Register-Tribune Thursday, June 5, 1930:

Mrs. Joseph Beach, a resident of Akron and vicinity for more than forty
years, passed away at her home in this city on Saturday, May 31, 1930, of
paralysis and complications, at the age of 67 years, 1 month and 23 days.
She had been in failing health the past several years.

Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the youngest child of a family of eight, was born
April 8, 1863, near Kankakee, Illinois, where she spent her early girlhood.
She came west to Union county, S.D., about he year 1887, and was united in
marriage with William Tillotson on June 10, 1888. To this union two children
were born, Andrew C. and Anna Mae. Mr. Tillotson passed away May 17, 1895.
Her second marriage was to Joseph Beach, October 22, 1895, and to them were
born nine children. Three sons died in infancy. Six children survive this
marriage—Mrs. Bertha Carpenter, John, George, Leo and Viva Beach and Mrs.
Lottie Coleman. Besides her husband and children, all of whom were with her
when the final summons came, there are twenty-three grandchildren and a host
of other relatives and friends who will mourn her departure. She united
with the Baptist church when a girl, but after coming to Akron she took
fellowship with the Church of Christ and remained a conscientious and
faithful worker for Christ until the end. If estimated by her energy and the
good she has done, she has lived long, for she never grew tired and never
complained, but rejoiced that she was permitted to labor for her loved ones
and those who needed her, and for her Savior, who died that she might live.
Her health began to fail about four years ago and, in spite of all the
doctors could do, she gradually failed. On Sunday May 25, she took worse and
gradually grew weaker. A little after midnight Friday her soul returned to
Him who gave it. With Him she will await the coming of her boys and girls,
all of whom have accepted mother’s Savior as their Savior, too.

Funeral services will be held Monday afternoon in the Christian church here,
conducted by the pastor, O. M. Keyes. There was a large attendance of
relatives and friends as a final tribute of respect. Interment was in
Riverside cemetery.
