Maude Sowers was born July 2, 1877. Died April 27, 1901, aged 23 years, 9 months and 25 days. For more than three years her health has been gradually failing but not until within the past ten days were the symptoms of disease such as to cause undue anxiety to herself and family. During these last days she seemed to realize that the end was near, and frequently spoke to the family telling them that she was resigned and willing to die, and would pray to be taken home. Maude was converted when 13 years of age, but failing to live as closely to her Master as was her privilege she grew cold. Two years ago she renewed her covenant with her Savior. We can truthfully say she was susceptible to and sympathetic with others in their troubles, and looked on the cheerful side of life, thus often bringing sunshine to those around her. She leaves a father, mother, one sister and two brothers and numerous friends, who will cherish her memory and mourn her loss. The funeral services were held at the Friends Church at Kingman Sunday, Apr. 28, at 11 a.m., and were conducted by Sarah T. McKey, and her remains were laid to rest in the Harveysburg Cemetery. A large crowd was in attendance at the services. G. W. Sowers and family wish to thank the many sympathetic, friends who so thoughtfully aided and consoled them in their sad hour of affliction. – jlr
