OBITUARIES
Druzie Beckham

Mrs. Druzie Beckham, daughter of Graville and Mary McLaughlin, was born 
December 23, 1875 and departed this life January 17, 1912, aged 36 years 
and 24 days.

She leaves to mourn her death a heartbroken husband and two children, Norman 
and Goldie Fern, one son having gone on before. She leaves father and mother 
one brother three sisters and host of friends to mourn her loss.

She was converted when 16 years of age and united with the Methodist Church 
at Wolf Prairie.

She bore her affliction with great patience and as her sufferings increased 
her home in Christ became brighter.

She is gone this life to cease.

To join those in celestial peace; she is gone her crown to claim.

There to rest to eternal fame.

Gone but sleeping in the Lord her Saviour. Before the Lord called her to 
her host home she call her children to her and told them mama was going to 
die and for them to be good children. Her place is vacant in her home that 
never can be filled."

Interment at Hickory Hill Cemetery. Funeral service conducted by 
Rev. J. W. Allen.
