Friends of Mrs. Leonard K. Beyer were shocked to hear of her sudden death which occurred early Sunday morning, January 1, 1933, in the Uniontown Hospital. She had been seriously ill for two weeks, but her family and friends were hopeful for her recovery.

Born at Milton, Pa - a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O.J. Stocker - she was graduated from Bucknell University in the class of 1924. She specialized in the study of Biology and Modern Languages. She taught two years in Mifflintown, Pa., and two years in Berwick, Pa., before coming to Uniontown as a teacher of Biology in 1928. In June 1928, she was married to Leonard K. Beyer, teacher of Biology and Agriculture in the Uniontown Senior High School.

During her four years as teacher in the Uniontown High School, she won the respect of pupils and faculty alike. She sponsored and organized the High School Nature Club, which has been most successful in its activities. Present and former members of the Nature Club will miss her presence on their occasional mountain field's class of the same church.

A brief prayer service was held at the Ferguson funeral home on Sunday afternoon when friends of her Sunday School Class, High School faculty members, members of the Lackey Class of which Mr. Beyer is a member, and others, gathered for a brief service. Earl T. Chamberlin was in charge.
Six members of the faculty acted as escort and pallbearers early Monday morning, when the body was taken to the Pennsylvania railroad station preparatory to being taken to Milton, Pa., for burial.

Those acting as pallbearers were: C. Warren Brown, I.F. Hoerger, Edgar C. Hastings, Ban R. Kovar and R.D. Mosier and G.B. Whitmoyer.

Mary Pauline Stocker Beyer is survived by her husband, Leonard K. Beyer, her mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Stocker, two sisters, Mrs. McDonald Hauck of Milton, Pa., and Mrs. Edith Keyser of Bethlehem, Pa.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday at Milton, in her parents' home with burial in Milton Cemetery.
