Large Crowd Attends Funeral
for Shirley Peckham at
Wilder Friday

     WILDER (Special) - Funeral services for Shirley Peckham, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hubert G. Peckham, who died September 27, were held Friday afternoon at the Wilder Methodist church.  The church could not hold the crowd, many of whom remained outside.
    The scripture was read by the pastor, the Rev. Merle M. Burres, following which several sixth grade classmates of Shirley sang "In the Garden."  Dr. H. H. Hayman spoke, using Song of Solomon 6:2 as his text.  The Rev. Albert B. Parrett of the Caldwell Methodist church gave the obituary.  Mrs. Charles Stredder sang "Pink Rose in My Garden," accompanied by Mrs. T. C. Phillips.
    Pallbearers were E. G. Lee, Milton Leigh, W. J. Clark, Oren Hudson, Charles Farley and Tom Smith. Dr. Hayman and Rev. Parrett conducted the services at the grave.
    Shirley Evadine Peckham was born January 18, 1926.  She became an associate member of the Greenleaf Friends' church at the time of her birth, and later was enrolled in the Wilder Methodist church Sunday school.  She was just beginning her sixth year of school.  Shirley was a talented pianist and had done some credible composition work.
    Surviving are her parents, her brother, Vance Edward, her grandmother, Mrs. Adrienne N. Peckham of Caldwell, and several uncles, aunts and cousins.
