    In Memoriam

    Edward Karl Reeves

    Mr. Edward Karl Reeves of 324 Egan Street, Monroe, Louisiana, passed away quietly March 29, 1961 at his home. He had suffered a stroke last February. Mr. Reeves was born in Marion, Louisiana, March 6, 1880, and was 80 years of age.
    Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Harriet Reeves; one daughter, Miss Mabel Reeves; two sons, Edward Karl Reeves, Jr., Baton Rouge, and the Rev. Wallace Reeves, Monroe; two brothers, Sam Reeves, Marion, and M. O. Reeves, Monroe; two sisters, Mrs. Ed Buckley, Ruston, and Mrs. J. C. Allen, Marion; and three grandchildren.
    Mr. Reeves attended four Christian Colleges, always believing in higher education, as he and Mrs. Reeves paid a supreme sacrifice in order that their children might have a good education. Colleges which Mr. Reeves attended were Peniel College, Texas, Asbury College, Willmore, Kentucky, where he met such men as Dr. E. S. Jones, Bishop Arthur J. Moore, Dr. H. C. Morrison who was at one time president of Asbury, and Dr. Seeth Reece. These men had great influence upon his life, as they were men who believed in the perfection of one's life to Christ and His great Church.
    After leaving Asbury, Mr. Reeves attended Travicca College in Nashville, Tennessee, where he met Mrs. Reeves who was also attending the school. Her home was in Ava, Illinois, and after a short time, she became his wife. They moved to Louisiana to make their home.
    They made their home in Monroe for the past 40 years. Mr. and Mrs. Reeves moved their letter to the Gordon Avenue Methodist Church joining with five others to become a Charter Member in January, 1927.
    Mr. Reeves was the second Church Sunday School Superintendent, taking that position December 15, 1929. He was a teacher for 32 years. When a Methodist Men's Club was organized August 26, 1949, he was a charter member.
    Tribute to a Great Man.
    Mr. Reeves impressed me from the start as a great Christian, and a true friend. I found that friend in Mr. Reeves. He said to me from the start, “Preacher, if I can ever be of help in any way, please call on me.” He loved the Methodist Church and its program. He loved all of the Ministers that were sent to his Church.
    He always remarked “you ministers are sent by the Conference, you come and go, but I will be working here as long as I live.”
    He served God until the last. He taught the Men's Bible Class until his stroke last February, and said then, “I will be back if it's God's will”. But God knows best about all things.
    He was laid to rest in Memorial Park Cemetery, Monroe, La., March 30, 1961.
    Rev. W. M. Allen, pastor of the Gordon Avenue Methodist Church officiated, assisted by Rev. Y. I. Yeager, Rev. Smith and Rev. T. A. Brown.

  10. The 1920 U.S. census suggests that the Reeves family was still in Union Parish at the time of the census. The move probably happened shortly thereafter. There is a discrepancy with the obituary from the Monroe News Star.
