2. Obituary: Le Mars Daily Liberal: Obituary of Daisy Beecher on 7 Feb 1882 in Le Mars, Plymouth, IA. 2 Little Daisy Beecher, who died last week, was a member of Miss Sweetland's school, and a bright promising child. A special favorite with her little school mates, Daisy is sadly missed from among the number, and teachers and scholars, all, unite in saying that little Daisy was a sweet and loveable child, gentle and kind. The parents and friends have the sincere sympathy of these in this dark hour of their affliction. The knowledge that little Daisy is now safe at home will tend greatly to assuage the-parent's grief, and the tender sympathy of loving friends makes the burden less severe.

3. Obituary: Le Mars Daily Liberal: Obituary of Nellie Beecher on 1 Mar 1882 in Le Mars, Plymouth, IA. 4 The friends of Mr. and Mrs. B. Beecher will regret to learn that death has a second time, within the present month entered their family, and this time has claimed Nellie as his victim. Diphtheria was the dreaded disease that has thus claimed a double sacrifice.

Daisy, the youngest of the family, aged seven years, died Feb. 1st, Nellie aged nine who was sick at that time, seemed to get better and hopes were entertained of her recovery, but she suddenly grew worse and on the 18th death claimed her also.

Thus these parents are subjected to a double bereavement, but they do not mourn as those without hope, since their children, though young, gave unmistakable knowledge of the way of salvation as taught in the Bible, and with apparent desire looked forward to the joys of the glad home beyond the skies.

And thus these little favorites have passed from earth to heaven, leaving parents and sisters, school mates and friends to look back with fond recollection, upon their lovely, gentle lives, and forward with the consolation, that it is well with them in the home beyond.
