Funeral Services For Mary Beall Held Tuesday

Funeral services for Miss Mary Beall were held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock in the Cox Memorial home with Rev. Thomas Walsh officiating. Burial was in the Wyoming cemetery,

Miss Beall was born in Stark county in 1864, the daughter of Thomas and Alphelia Beall, and died Sunday in Chicago where she had made her home for several years.

Pallbearers were cousins, Everett Beall of Brimfield, Howard Beall, Ralph Beall of Princeville, Robert Beall of West Jersey, Raymond Beall and Howard Beall of Wyoming.

Partially blinded by an accident when she was two and a half years old, she lost her sight completely nearly a half a century later. Because of the accident an aunt kept her much of the time and claimed her as her own.

Miss Beall attended the school for the blind in Jacksonville and there learned to read Braille, crochet, do tatting, raffia work and other similar crafts as well as letter writing with her metal frame, all things, which were a big part of her life during later years.

Her ninetieth birthday was celebrated by the receipt of congratulatory messages from all over the United States, her two sisters, 20 nieces and nephews and numerous grandnieces, nephews and cousins.

Surviving are two sisters, Mrs. Susie Musselman of Chicago and Mrs. Minnie Logan of Nebraska. Eleven sisters and brothers preceded her in death.

Glenn Beall of Wyoming is a first cousin and Everett Beall of Brimfield and Ralph and Howard Beall are second cousins of the deceased.
