Beaver, George Raymond (July 3, 1894 - October 13, 1961)
by Mrs. Freda Hageman
Unknown - November 16, 1961Raymond Beaver, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Beaver of Lincoln, Illinois, was born July 3, 1894. At the age of 3 years he moved with his parents to Tekamah, Nebraska, where he received his education and grew up to manhood.
He came to Wyoming in 1918, taking up a homestead in the Walker Creek community, where he engaged in ranching and farming. On December 22, 1926, he married Juanita Hageman in Douglas. He and his wife built up a nice home on their ranch and were blessed with a family of two sons and a daughter.
In spite of the hard work of building up the homestead in the early years, Raymond was always ready and willing to help with any and all worthwhile improvements in this community.
He and his wife were especially helpful to start and maintain a Sunday school in our school house, which was attended by 14 families for many years. Raymond was under a doctor's care for more than two years here, then was advised to move to a lower climate, so he and his wife traveled as far as Tekamah, Neb. to visit with many of his brothers and friends there, when he became very ill and had to enter the hospital in Blair, Neb. There he was under the care of the best specialists for more than five weeks until his death on October 12, 1961 (sic) October 13, 1961.
His funeral was attended by all his relatives, all of his neighbors and friends, from near and far, to pay their last respects to a very good neighbor.
He will be sadly missed by his wife and children and long remembered by all who knew him. May he rest in peace.
