Brother and Sister Paul Broadus met an untimely death as the result of an automobile collision, Sunday evening, December 18, while en route from St. Louis to St. James, Mo. They, with four of their five children, were going to hear the oldest son, Edwin, preach. An oncoming car skidded directly into the path of their car. Sister Broadus was killed instantly. Brother Broadus died two days later as the result of injuries. The children were all hospitalized. Donald, aged sixteen, and Mary Louise, aged thirteen, were released December 26. Carolyn, aged ten, in addition to other severe injuries, has a badly-broken foot, which will require an operation. David, aged four, has three broken ribs and two broken vertebra, but is improving satisfactorily. A funeral service was held in St. Louis on December 22. T. T. Carney, preacher of Spring and Blaine Church, preached the sermon. Another service was held in Wichita, Kan., on December 23, where they were buried. G. K. Wallace preached the sermon there. The deceased spent most of their early lives in Wichita, where they both were baptized into the body of Christ in early youth. They were very faithful in all phases of our Lord's work, regular in attendance, zealous of good works, rearing their children in the way of the Lord. All are faithful Christians except the baby, David. Edwin is already a splendid young gospel preacher. He is in his second year at Abilene Christian College. Prior to coming to St. Louis about two years ago and placing membership with Spring and Blaine Church, the Broadus family had lived in Oklahoma City for about ten years, where Brother Broadus served as an elder of the Tenth and Francis Church. In secular life Brother Broadus was manager of the St. Louis division of Cook Paint and Varnish Company. He was highly respected by officials and employees of the company and by business associates. We loved them deeply, and will miss them much. Indeed, a devout mother in Israel has gone the way of all the earth, and in the ranks of Israel's host a mighty man has fallen. Besides the children, the immediate family left to mourn their passing are two sisters and three brothers of Sister Broadus and father, mother, and three brothers of Brother Broadus. His brother, Herbert, is a gospel preacher, laboring with the church in Topeka, Kan. Our sympathy and our prayers are especially for God's richest blessings upon these children so suddenly bereft of their father and mother. F. E. Sewell. - Gospel Advocate, January 12, 1950, page 31.
