|Edward Samuel Pealer
November 22, 1867–July 1, 1943
|Edward Samuel Pealer, son of David and LaVuia (Lavina) Pealer, was born at Reo, Michigan, November 22, 1867, and passed away July 1, 1943. In his very early childhood his parents came to Wyoming and here he spent his life. His father had an old time blacksmith shop which teemed with life and work very essential in that day too, full of interest to a growing boy and his friends.
Edward was practical, liked work that took head and hands to master. Therefore he became a carpenter in early manhood and followed the trade through his life. Ed Pealer and his crew how much they added to the lives of those whom he contacted through his work. Friends by the score called for his help and cheerfully he responded. Ever leaving a job, large or small, well done.
On December 20, 1893 he was united in marriage to Miss Ida Ireland. The family were planning in a few months to celebrate the golden anniversary. The Divine plan willed differently. For several years Mr. Pealer has given the most tender and perfect care to his invalid wife. No sacrifice too great. Ever cheerful, patient, untiring in the effort to keep up the home so loved. Children and grandchildren, friends and relatives came and went feeling the quietness of this home and the atmosphere it radiated.
Once long ago a good man said, All we can take out of this world with us is what we have given away and what we have done for others. If this is true, Edward S. Pealer has entered into his eternal years very richly endowed.
He is survived by his wife, two daughter, Nina (Mrs. Orlie Dawes) of Wyoming and Gladys (Mrs. Walter Janrick) of Moline, Ill.; two grandchildren, Orval and Betty Dawes; a brother, Frank Pealer of Wyoming, and a sister. Mrs. Robert Platner of Detroit, Michigan; an aunt, Mrs. Libbie Countryman; one niece and three nephews.
He was a member of Keystone Lodge No. 206 A.F.&A M. Pallbearers were members of the Keystone Lodge.
