TEETER, George C.

Former Area Man Is Slain In California ~ George C. Teeter, 24, Shot by Best Friend
A 24 year-old former resident of near Flintstone was one of two persons killed Sunday in a shooting in a bar in Los Angeles. George C. Teeter was killed by an irate husband who also killed his own wife, according to police in Los Angeles. Officers said Elroy E. Pena, 37, walked into the bar shortly before closing and pleaded with his estranged wife, Joan, 36, to return home with him.  She was sitting with Teeter and refused to leave with her husband, according to police. "Can't you see she doesn't want you any more?" Teeter asked.  "Why don't you get the hell out of here?" The police said Pena and Teeter stepped outside the tavern to settle the argument, and patrons at the tavern heard a shot.

Returns, Shoots Wife

Then Pena charged back into the bar and shot his wife in the face, police said. Pena slumped on the bar and buried his face in his arms.  "She was running around a lot and I just couldn't take it any more, " he told police. Police also said Pena and Teeter were understood to be very good friends, the Associated Press reported. Pena has been booked on suspicion of murder, police said.

In West Since 1958

Teeter had been living in Texas since his discharge from the Army in 1956.  He left Texas several weeks ago for California, where he was looking for employment. A native of the Flintstone area, he was a son of the late Samuel C. Teeter and is survived by his step-mother, Mrs. Alice Teeter, this city.  Also surviving are two half-brothers, William Ginoverski, with the Army at Fort Eustis, Va., and Dorsey Jones, Mineola, N. Y. Services were conducted in Los Angeles, and burial will be in National Cemetery there.

TEETS, Lester

Man Killed Under Falling Lumber Pile
Widow Lost First Husband, Two Sons In Drowning In 1945
A 59 - year - old Garrett county man, Lester Teets, of Friendsville, was killed Monday afternoon at a sawmill in Addison Township, Somerset
county, Pa., when caught under a lumber pile as it collapsed. Dr. A. M. Uphouse, Somerset county coroner, said the lumberman died almost instantly of a fractured skull, brain concussion and broken right leg. Richard Coddington, owner and operator of the sawmill, was pinned under the lumber pile when it toppled over but escaped injury.  A coroner's jury, which was impaneled a short time after the accident, ruled Teets lost his life in an unavoidable accident. Dr. Uphouse impaneled the jury in the Rishebarger Funeral Home, Addison, within four hours after the accident occurred. Coddington, the mill operator, told members of the coroner's jury workmen were loading cribbing blocks on a truck. He said he noticed the pile of lumber beginning to fall. Coddington testified he called to Teets to jump clear.  His warning, he declared, was too late and the cribbing crashed down hitting Teets about the head and shoulders.  The jury was informed by Coddington that his legs were pinned under the lumber. Other witnesses said they believed recent rains had weakened supports under the lumber pile causing it to collapse.  The included Frank Montague, Addison; Raymond Silbaught and Mason Getz, both of Friendsville, MD., and Donald Deal, Confluence, all workers at the lumber camp. The tragedy was the fourth violent death to strike in the immediate family of Mrs. Teets within a three-year period.  She and Lester Teets were married only three weeks.  Her first husband, Oscar Uphold and two sons were drowned in 1945 when a boat capsized in Deep Creek Lake.

In sad but loving remembrance of my dear friend Sara D. Tennant, who was born Oct. 24, 1883, died Oct. 21, 1904, aged 20 years 11 months and 28 days.
"Tis hard to break the tender cord,
When love had bound the heart,
Tis hard, so hard to speak the word
Must we forever part.
A loved one is gone from out circle,
On earth we will meet her no more,
But we know that some day she shall greet us,
At home on the heavenly shore.
Gone to a land of pure delight,
Where saints immortal reign,
Infinite day excludes the night,
And peasures banish pain.
Triumphant smiles the victors brow,
Fanned by some angel's purple wing,
Where is O Grave, thy victory now,
And were insidious death thy sting?
