ICKES, Samuel D.

Samuel D. Ickes, 85, co-owner with his son Sheldon of Ickes Drugs, one of the leading drug stores in the county, died at his home in Bedford Sunday morning, Dec. 8. He had been in ill health for some time. Mr. Ickes went into the drug business with his son Tom in Bedford in 1929 when they purchased the Heckerman Drug Store, one of the oldest business houses in Bedford. They continued in business together until the death of the son some 20 years ago. Later Mr. Ickes and his son Sheldon became partners in the store which was then in the same building with Straub Brothers Clothing Store on South Juliana Street. In recent years they purchased the old Bedford Theatre building almost directly across the street and remodeled it into a modern drug store. Before coming to Bedford, Mr. Ickes worked for the DeFrehn Chair Company, Johnstown, for 39 years. A man not only with a keen sense of humor but with a deep interest in his fellow men, he made himself a wide circle of friends in the community, particularly in the older generation. Old-timers will remember that there was something of the "country store" atmosphere about the drug store in the old days—a place where Sam was always ready to swap stories and pass the time of day with a visitor whether he was a customer or not. Samuel D. Ickes was born in Bedford County April 10, 1878, a son of James and Ellen (Raley) Ickes. He is survived by his wife Missouri M. (Slick) Ickes and these children: Mrs. Irene Hershberger, Cleveland, O.; Mrs. Ruth Hammer, Bedford; Sheldon, Bedford; 8 grandchildren; a brother, Edward, St. Clairsville, and a sister, Mrs. Grace Fickes, Altoona. He and Mrs. Ickes would have observed their 65th wedding anniversary in March. He was a member of the Baptist Church, Johnstown, the Odd Fellows, Johnstown, and a charter member of the Bedford Elks Club. Funeral services: 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, in the Louis Geisel Funeral Home, with the Rev. Ray Streets, Johnstown. Burial in the Fishertown cemetery. The family will receive friends In the funeral home 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 Monday evening.

IDLEMAN, Miss Maggie

The subject of this sketch was born February 26, 1866. She was the sixth child of Mr. and Mrs. J.R. Idleman. Two brothers and one sister older than she, and three younger brothers survive her. Being born and reared in a Christian home she early gave her heart to Jesus uniting with the Methodist Episcopal church, and consecrated her life to the service of Christ. She was not one of those members who has to be borne along by the church but contrary wise the work of the church was one of her greatest burdens. But it was a burden "not grievous to be borne" for she took great delight in doing what she could for the advancement of the Master's Kingdom. She strove to serve her Maker by helping those for whom Christ died. She was always ready to help in any church work. For many years she was teacher in the Sunday School and served as superintendent for several years. For three long weary months she was confined to her bed, and suffered more than tongue can tell. In her case it may be truly said, "She died by inches." She bore her suffering with a marked degree of patience and resignation. At first she was hopeful and anxious to recover but for several weeks previous to her death she realized that her condition was hopeless and often prayed to the Lord to come quickly. The funeral service was held on the 5th inst. and was conducted by Rev. H.C. Smith in the presence of a large audience. The speaker delivered an able discourse from II Timothy I and 12 - "For I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day."  F.C. Rollman was undertaker. The floral offerings were numerous and beautiful.
