Beautiful Eastern Star Rites Conducted at Graveside of Member


Funeral services for Mrs. Lloyd Adamson were held Saturday afternoon, January 11 at 1:00 o'clock at the Haxtun Methodist church, with Rev. Paul K. Corley in charge. The church couldn't accommodate the crowd of friends and associates who gathered to pay final tribute to Mrs. Adamson, who Reverend Corley in his message described so fittingly as an ideal teacher, friend, wife and mother.


A ladies' quartet composed of Mrs. J.B. Roush, Mrs. L.E. Taylor, Miss Phyllis Anderson and Miss Betty Sullivan, furnished the music with Mrs. R.L. Scott at the piano.


Members of the order of the Eastern Star attended the service in a body and conducted the services at the graveside. Mrs. Ace Goddard, worthy matron, Wallace Bruce, worthy patron, and Mrs. A.J. Petre, associate matron, performed the ritualistic service and were assisted by the five points, Mesdames Dana Archbold, H.D. Anderson, Frank Wilkens, Tom Moore, Jr. and Miss Doris Scott. The singing of "Star of the East" brought the service to a close followed by prayer by Reverend Corley.


Pallbearers were: Messrs. L.W. Griffith, Ace Goddard, T.E. Breezely, R.C. Nauman, Ray Phillips and Ace Goddard.
