Piqua Daily Call

Jan. 4, 1962


Mrs. Zana Marie Beman, 64, widow of Charles Beman, was found dead about 4 pm, Wednesday at her home,1213 Drexel, where she had suffered with a heart condition for several months, although her condition was not considered serious. She was seated by the telephone, which was found to be out of order when her son, Harry Trowbridge, called at the house after he had been unable to reach her on the phone.  Her physician said she had died of a heart attack, probably the night before as her bed had not been occupied. Born at Clayton, Jan. 19, 1897, she was the daughter of Benjamin and Hannah Harrison Detrick.  She attended school in Clayton and came to Piqua from West Milton in 1936.  She was married  to Harry Trowbridge in 1915. Her second marriage was to Charles Beman in 1950.  He died Dec. 10, 1956.  She was a member of St. James Episcopal Church. Surviving are two sons, Claude R. Trowbridge of Phoneix, Ariz. and Harry W. Trowbridge of Piqua, two brothers, Elmer Detrick of Troy and Raymond Detrick of Columbus, and five grandchildren.  A son, Richard H. Trowbridge, died in 1927, one brother and one sister also deceased.  The Rev. John P. Bartholomew will conduct services at 2 p m Saturday at the Madison Home for funerals with burial in Forest Hill cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home Friday after 2 pm., and until services Saturday.

This is Samuel R. Detrick's younger sister.
