Obituary: The Topeka Daily State Journal Thursday, January 31, 1918 Gave Life To Maker. Rev. T.J. Ream Was An Industrious Church Worker.
Rev. Theodore J. REAM, who died here Wednesday, was born April 14, 1853, in Stark county, Ohio. He came to Kansas in 1877 and was admitted on trial to Kansas conference and appointed as supply to the Venengo charge. In 1878 he was united in marriage to Miss Cassie HANES of Ohio. After serving in Venango, Delphos and Russell in the Kansas conference, he transferred to the east Ohio conference, where he served Unionville, Byesville, Summerfield, Damascus and Columbiana charges. In 1889 he transferred back to the Kansas conference, serving Auburn charge, then to the Lowman Memorial church in Topeka. After serving this church for four years he transferred to the Des Moines conference, giving nine years of service to different charge in Iowa. He then decided to return to his old conference in Kansas that he might finish his work where he began his ministry, serving Clay Center and the Central Avenue church in Kansas City, Kan. In 1909 he was appointed, by Bishop QUAYLE, district superintendent of the Topeka district, serving the full term of six years. After leaving the district he served Hiawatha church for two years. At the last session of the conference he was appointed financial secretary of the Methodist Home for the Aged in Topeka. He entered upon this new field of activity with the same cheerful spirit that always characterized his work and was succeeding in a splendid manner for this worthy institution, when fatal sickness closed the career of the servant of God.
The Rev. Mr. REAM is survived by his widow, six children, Dr. Frank REAM of New York City; Clarence REAM of Center Point, Ia.; Dwight REAM of Camp Pike, Ark.; Merriam REAM, of Iowa City; Joseph REAM, of Topeka, and Mrs. Donald S. STANLEY of Mankato, Kan. The funeral will be held Friday at 3 o'clock form the Lowman M.E. church.
