The intense heat is believed to have been a contributing cause of the death of Mrs. Buniece Beal Brown, age 45, at the home of her mother, Mrs. Cora Beal, Monday afternoon. Mrs. Brown had suffered from other ailments, however.
She was found dead in her bed at 6 p.m. Doctor Florea, who was called, said death probably came at 3 p.m.
A private memorial service was held Wednesday morning in the chapel at Evergreen Cemetery, where burial was made. The following obituary was read at the service by Rev. C. O. Olson, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church.
Mrs. Buniece Beal Bown was born in Superior, Nebr., May 19, 1889. She was educated in the Superior schools and grew to womanhood in this community. She was a graduate of a school in San Diego, Calif., having majored in domestic science and interior decorating. She taught school in the rural district near Superior, also Nelson, Nebr., and San Francisco, Calif.
She was married in 1912. While living in Twin Falls, Idaho she united with the Christian Church.
Her departure was sudden and unexpected on Monday, July 16.
Besides her Mother, Mrs. Cora Beal, she leaves two brothers, Mitchell and Wendell Beal both of Superior, Nebr. Her father preceded her in death several years ago.
Her parents came to Superior in the pioneer days. They lived here and succeeded in establishing themselves financially as well as in the confidence of the people.
