Subject

Spitler, Pauline Huffman Beydler (1917-2001)

Description

Portrait of Pauline (Beydler) Spitler as a young woman. She is sitting in studio and wearing a long dress with ruffled sleeves.

Pauline was the daughter of William Arthur (1883-1956) and Ernestine Estelle (Huffman) (1882-1969) Beydler, a farming couple who lived in the Johnston District of the county throughout the 1920’s and 1930’s.

After completing two years of high school, Pauline married Melvin Franklin Spitler (1909-1978) in June 1935. He was from Frederick County and the couple lived there after they married. The 1940 census found “Polly” Spitler raising two young children while her husband drove a truck for a lumber company. Ten years later Melvin worked as a mechanic in a machinery company and the family had three children: James W., Mary M. and Martha J.

Pauline lived more than twenty years after her husband died. She was buried in Maurertown.
