    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, January 5, 1910 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Mrs. Roxanna Beadle - Mrs. Roxanna Beadle, widow of the late Orrin Beadle, of Orwell, “fell asleep in Jesus,” Friday afternoon, December 24, 1909, after being satisfied with a long and useful life. Her death resulted from Bright’s disease, aggravated by her advanced age. The departed was born in Floyd, Oneida County, October 31, 1822, being the daughter of John E. and Jane (Davis) Potter, who settled in the town of Orwell, when the town as yet, had nothing to offer than more hardships and privations, incident to the life of pioneers. October 8, 1848 she was united in marriage to Orrin Beadle, who departed this life twenty-two years ago. Four children blessed their union: William, residing at Orwell, and Mrs. C. E. Keyes, Pulaski; also two brothers, Albert J., Orwell and Marshall D. Potter, of Lawrence, Kansas. Her obsequies were held at her late home, Tuesday afternoon, December 28. Her pastor, Rev. Alonzo Hand assisted by Rev. T. T. Davies, officiating. Interment in the family lot in Evergreen cemetery, Orwell. Mrs. Beadle will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends in the community, where she was known and highly respected. Those who knew her loved her. Her advanced age did not make her cynical and gloomy. Kept young in mind and heart, to the very last of her days. It was sunshine and not shadow, cheer and not gloom, that determined her life. She was _ and upright in her character. Flattery and hypocrisy were _ to their nature. She always spoke the plain unvarnished truth, regardless of the consequences and yet she was kind, sympathetic and true in her innocent life. For seventy years she was a member of the M. E. church and during these years she walked with Jesus in white. Her Christian experience with deep and her religious life was beautiful. When the end came she was ready to go to the Lord, and to remain forever with him. [Last two sentences unreadable.]
