PEACEFUL DEATH TO MRS. F. H. BROYLES
Sudden end came Friday while enroute to visit in Nebraska
Mother of Three Doctors
Memorial Services Held Yesterday at Bethany Christian Church;
Burial Beside Husband at Auburn, Nebr.
A distinct shock to the family, relatives and friends of Mrs. F. H. Broyles was the news of her death, which occurred suddenly last Friday morning about 10:00 o'clock, while she was en route to Auburn, Nebr., to visit her sister Mrs. Charlene Ramsey. George Jennings of Bethany was driving her car, when a few miles from Stanberry, he became aware she was resting her head on the back of the seat, which he had seen her do other times when driving for her. Later, however, he noticed she was unusually pale and whe he spoke to her, she did not answer. He rushed to a nearby farm house, the home of Perry Walters in Nodaway county, and called for a doctor and ambulance to come from Stanberry. No doctor was available at that time and the ambulance did not arrive until after 11:00 o'clock. Death came very soon after Jennings noticed her condition, as he reported she never spoke and only once was there a slight movement of the head. The coroner was called from Maryville and he certified her death was from a heart attack.
Jennings called the older son Dr. Glen H. Broyles of Kansas City, who instructed him to have the body returned to Bethany to the S. M. Haas funeral home.
Another son Major Watkins A. Broyles, M. D., with Mrs. Broyles, was stranded at Flagstaff, Ariz., following serious car trouble while en route home from California, where the major was recently discharged from the Army. They were notified there of his mother's death and arrived Monday night by train in Kansas City and were brought on to Bethany.
A daughter Dr. Elizabeth Broyles, house physician at Wellesley College, Boston, Mass., was summoned and arrived Saturday, in company with her niece Mrs. James Stout (Frances Broyles) and Dr. Stout from St. Louis. Dr. and Mrs. Glen Broyles came as soon as possible after receiving the message.
Native of Nebraska
Mrs. Broyles, the former Miss Leila Watkins, was a daughter of David and Elizabeth (McGrew) Watkins. She was born Oct. 6, 1861 in Nemaha County Nebr., and was aged 85 years, one month and four days at the time of her death. She came to Bethany with her late husband, Dr. F. H. Broyles, in 1900, and had continuously made her home in this city. Dr. Broyles died eight years ago, and since then she has retained her home here, with Mrs. Lillie Jennings, who had been with the Broyles family for many years. She also enjoyed the company of her daughter Dr. Elizabeth during the summer months.
Helped Less Fortunate
Mrs. Broyles lived full and active years for her family, for her church, and for the community. Always generous to the less fortunate, she was addicted to no affectations or ostentation, and in her refined, kind way, made the path much easier for those less fortunate than herself. She was never found wavering in her convictions of right and wrong, and the benefits bestowed to her church, benefactors, and community have builded her a lasting memorial.
Funeral Services
Funeral services were conducted at 10:30 o'clock Wednesday morning at the Christian church, with Huell Warren, pastor, officiating. Music was furnished by a quartet composed of Messrs. W. H. Haas and L. E. Cassidy and Mesdames H. C. Shroyer and Raleigh Bartlett who sang "Rock of Ages" and " In the Garden." Mrs. Shroyer also sang "Goin' Home."
The funeral party left following the service for Auburn, Nebr., where interment was made yesterday afternoon beside the last resting place of her husband.


She was buried in November 1945 at Sheridan Cemetery, Auburn, Nemaha Co., NE.
