BEDDINGFIELD, Mr. and Mrs. Will The Pulaski Citizen 30 Aug 1950
A double tragedy occurred Tuesday evening near Delrose, when Mr. and Mrs. Will Beddingfield, both lifelong residents of that section, died within a few hour of each other, Mrs. Beddingfield's death resulting, relatives state, from a heart attack brought on by the shock received when her husband was brought home from a neighbor's home unconscious from an attack of apoplexy. Mr. Beddingfield succumbed in the early hours of the following morning.
Mr. Beddingfield, who has survived two previous strokes, was visiting at a neighbor's home when he was stricken. He did not regain consciousness before his death, according to the family, and did not know of Mrs. Beddingfield's death. His wife, who, it is said, had been in ill-health from a chronic heart ailment for five years, was overcome at the sight of her husband's condition and died within a few minutes, around 8:00 P. M. Mr. Beddingfield's death occurred at 4:00 a.m. Wednesday.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Charles Weaver, First Church of God, 2:00 P.M. Wednesday, with interments in the Shiloh Church Cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Beddingfield are survived by two sons, Burl, who lives near Delrose, and Dewey, who lived with his parents. Mrs. Beddingfield was the last survivor of her immediate family, but Mr. Beddingfield is survived by five brothers, Tully, James, Charles, Elmore and Ed Beddingfield.
