Funeral services were conducted July 22, at the First Christian Church in Butler, Mo. Burial was in Oak Hill Cemetery.

He held 270 hours of college credit, a record at one time in Missouri and was approved to teach 26 subjects. Dr. and Mrs. Stevens were married in Independence Dec. 26, 1900, and celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary last year.

However, he got up and looked through the rooms but could not find his wife, then went to the basement, where he found her body and near it a bottle of Lysol and a razor. She had apparently started to drink the Lysol, for there was a burn on her lips, although none in her mouth; but had discarded the poison for the razor. She was dead when her husband found her, with the trachea and large blood vessels of her neck cut. Dr. S. B. Hughes, new county coroner, went to the home, but no inquest was held as it was apparently a case of suicide, there being no signs of foul play.

Urich Cemetery, Bogard Twp, Henry Co, MO
Mrs. Byron Stewart died very suddenly at her home in Urich, early Wednesday morning, December 7th. She had suffered a severe attack of acute indigestion the evening before and the doctor had been called who relieved her, and she was much better when her husband retired. He took their little three year old daughter, Eugenia, to bed with him, so she would not disturb her mother. When he retired Mrs. Stewart was sleeping quietly. The next morning little Jean ran to her mother's bed, and could not awaken her. Mr. Stewart heard her say, "Oh, mother, who won't you talk to me," but a short time before her spirit had slipped into eternity, the pain having evidently gone to her heart. The doctor and neighbors were called but nothing could be done. Her maiden name was Mary Lee Gutridge, and she was born near Clinton, July 11th, 1883, she being a daughter of the late Peter and Sophronia Gutridge. Her parents died when she was a small child, and she was reared by her grandmother, Mrs. Mary Clifton, near LaDue. She was married the first time to Dowe Morlan, who died a number of years ago. One child, Louise Morlan, blessed this union. She resides in Urich with her grandfather, W. B. Morlan. She married Mr. Stewart several years ago and one daughter, Jean, came to gladden their home. This husband and little daughter survive. She also leaves one brother, J. W. Gutridge, of Clinton; two sisters - Mrs. Harold Kepner, of Wichita, Kans., and Mrs. Jno. Clary, of Clinton. In her girlhood she was converted and united with the Bear Creek Methodist church. After she moved to Urich she united with her husband with the Presbyterian church. She was devoted to her home and her church. Nobody in Urich will be missed any more as she was ready to answer the call of those who were in sorrow or affliction at all times. She was beloved by all her family and her sisters-in-law were as devoted to her as to their own sisters. She had the brightest and happiest manner and radiated good cheer to all about her. Her going is hard to explain for to leave little Jean without the guiding counsel of a mother is much to be deplored, but those who loved her mother will do all possible to fill her place. The funeral was held Friday afternoon at the Presbyterian church, preached by the pastor. Interment in Urich cemetery.
