BEAULIEU, Martha MUIR - Mrs. Martha Beaulieu died Thursday night at her home on South Second street after an illness of several weeks at the age of 80 years, eleven months and 26 days. Mrs. Beaulieu had been in poor health for several years, following a stroke of paralysis, but her condition was not considered serious until about ten days previous to her death and the end came quicker than had been anticipated. Funeral services were held at the residence Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock and were conducted by Rev. W.L. Edwards of the First Christian church. Burial was in the Rogers cemetery by the side of her husband, Joseph Beaulieu, who died January 18, 1911. Martha Muir was born November 29, 1846 at Dewittsville, Quebec, Canada, her father being Scotch and her mother of French birth. She was married to Joseph Beaulieu February 20, 1865 and to them were born 13 children. Five of them died in infancy and the oldest son, Joseph, Jr. died in Rogers May 22, 1920. The children living are Mrs. Annie Heller, Pocono Summitt, Pa.; Mrs. Lillie Bellah, Rogers; Peter 0. Beaulieu, Winner, South Dakota; Mrs. Celena Anderson, Oakland, Calif.; Minnie Beaulieu, Rogers; Frank Beaulieu, San Francisco, Calif.; Mrs. Ray Poullen, Oakland, Calif. and 4 grandchildren. She is also survived by 2 sisters and a brother. The family came to Rogers 37 years ago from Akron, Iowa and for many years lived on their farm just east of town on Prairie Creek. After the death of her husband and son Mrs. Beaulieu left the farm and came to town to live with her daughters. Mrs. Beaulieu's great ambition was to see her children secure adequate educations and it was the delight of her life that at least two of them graduated from Drury College at Springfield. No sacrifice was too great for her children and while Mrs. Beaulieu in her younger days was a hard working woman, as are most of the French Canadians, her declining days were made happy by their attention and care. Two of her daughters were with her when she died and P.O. Beaulieu, who was hunting in Wyoming when word of his mother's death reached him, arrived Sunday night for the funeral. Few sons have been more devoted than was Mr. Beaulieu and it was a disappointment that he did not reach here before she died.
