Final Rites Last Thursday For Pioneer Resident

Mrs. Elizabeth Beakler, well-known resident of Humeston, died October 18, 1949. She had been in frail health for the past three years, but only critically ill for eleven days following a cerebral hemorrhage suffered Thursday, October 7th.

The funeral services were held at the home at 2:00 p.m., October 20th conducted by the Rev. Clare H. Boos. Interment was made at the Kirby cemetery.

Elizabeth Beakler, daughter of Joseph and Hannah Morley was born at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, July 26, 1864 and died at her home in Humeston, October 18, 1949, aged 85 years, 2 months, and 22 days.

At the age of six years her parents moved to an improved farm home southeast of Humeston where she grew to womanhood.

She was married to Albert Henry Beakler on April 5, 1886 and moved to their new home three miles east of Humeston. In this home Albert Beakler died January 28, 1908. Twenty-two years ago Mrs. Beakler moved to her late home in Humeston where she has since resided. To Albert and Elizabeth were born six children - three sons and three daughters: John Raymond, who died in 1903; Ethel, at home; Mable Irene Owens, of Afton, Iowa; Clifford H., of Humeston; Ruth, who died in 1945; and Morley, who died in 1935. In addition she is survived by six grandchildren and one great-grandchild; one brother, Dr. J.P. Morley of Los Angeles, California; and one sister, Mrs. Mary Haskell, of Porterville, California.

She was a devoted mother and her children will everhold in reverence her dear name. Next to her children she lived largely in the lives of her friends and neighbors of whom she had a wide circle and who were held in high esteem. Of her thoughtfulness and her tireless and self-forgetting service for the sick and needy, during the years of her strength, a host will bear grateful witness.

She was converted and united with the Methodist Episcopal church at an early age and since has lived a devoted faithful and christian life. She loved the service of God's house and when health and circumstances permitted, she was rarely absent. Those who knew her inner life knew that the Master's spirit was upon her and that she had learned of Him, with unfaltering faith, she came down to the opening of gates that lead out to the eternal world. In the full rounded maturity of her christian character she has gone to her reward.
