Mrs. Katherine B. Beard, wife of Rev. M. L. Beard, pastor of the Lutheran church at Thurmont, died at her home there, yesterday, of Bright's disease, aged 50 years. Her death was comparatively sudden. Although she had not been in good health for the past several months, it was not thought her condition was anyways serious until a day or so before her death. She was the possessor of a kind and loving disposition and a true Christian character and will be mourned by a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. Born at Jefferson, this county, February 2, 1860, she came from a prominent family, well known in this section. She was a daughter of the late Rev. George Bowers. Surviving her, besides her husband, are five daughters and two sons: Mrs. Russell Young, of Emmittsburg; Mrs. Carl Mumford, of Littlestown; Mrs. Lester Birely, of Thurmont; Misses Kathleen and Haidee, at home; Messrs. Paul B. and John, at home. She is also survived my her mother, three brothers and one sister: Rev. John C. Bowers, of Baltimore; Rev. George Bowers, Winchester, Va.; Dr. Pascal Brown, of Philadelphia, Pa.; Mrs. Leila Groves, wife of Dr. Charles Groves of the Columbia University, New York. The funeral services will be held at the home in Thurmont, after which her remains will be taken to Middletown, where the family formerly lived, where interment will be made. Rev. Charles E. Reinewald, of the Lutheran church at Emmitsburg, will officiate.
