Died at the residence of Shelton Jenkins, Eugene, Oregon, August 25, 1904, Miss Bertha Rose Beaman, of Franklin, Oregon. Miss Beaman was born at Haystack, Crook county, Oregon, July 27, 1884, being 20 years and 29 days old at the time of her demise. With the exception of the first seven years of her life which was spent near Prineville she has lived in or near Franklin, only going to Eugene a few weeks ago for medical treatment.
Rose, as she was familiarly called by her friends, was a general favorite. Though always frail and delicate in health, she was strong in the love of home and friends and laid aside thoughts of self to make others happy. She was a consistent member of the Christian Church and for two years preceding her death scarily a Lordís day passed without finding her before her Sunday School class, striving by precept and example to impart to them a knowledge and love of the faith in which she so earnestly believed. Like the lovely flower whose name she wore she shed sweetness and joy on all who came in her presence. So when the news came over the wire that she had gone to her last, long home, it cast a gloom over the entire community. But after the first keen shock of grief had passed, loving friends set to work to make her last home coming a beautiful one, and by so doing, pay a tribute of love to the memory of one they held dear. Her favorite songs were selected and willing hands brought an abundance of trailing vines and fragrant flowers and soon transformed her beloved church into a bower of beauty, making it a fitting receptacle for her pure body.
Rev. D. E. Olsen of Eugene, conducted the funeral services, after which all that was mortal of our Rose was laid to rest in the Franklin cemetery; her soul resting secure in the knowledge that ďhenceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness.Ē Besides a host of friends Miss Beaman leaves a father, mother and five sisters to mourn her early death, who have the heart felt sympathy of their numerous friends and acquaintances.
