Funeral is held for Mrs. Lenora S. Rowe 

    "Funeral services for Mrs. Lenora Sprott Rowe, wife of P. R. Rowe and life-long resident of Polk County were held at the family residence at 2:30 o"clock last Thursday afternoon.  Rev. P. P. Dawson, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, officiated. He was assisted by Rev. C. E. Peeples of the Methodist Church and Rev. A. E. Riemann of the Central Baptist Church. 
    Interment was at Forest Hill Cemetery.  Pallbearers were J. C. Manning, Alto Watson, Chas. Sprott, B. Rowe, Jr., Howard Jones, and Andrew Stevens. 
    In the course of his remarks, Rev. Mr. Dawson said; "Mrs. Rowe needs no eulogy; her eulogy is found in the hearts of her friends and her family.  Wife, mother, and friend----this sums up her life."  And this sentiment was echoed by the scores of friends who had gathered to pay their tribute to Mrs. Rowe and who said to each other, "She was always sweet, always kind; she was a woman who lived Christianity every day of her life." 
    Mrs. Rowe died in a Houston hospital after an illness of  almost a year. 
    She was 62 years of age, having been born March 15, 1871 on a farm eight miles from Livingston.  Most of her life was spent here in Livingston.  She was for a few years a teacher in the school here.  She was married to P. R. Rowe Jan. 2, 1899. She became a church member in early girlhood and had long been an active worker in the Presbyterian Church. 
    Mrs. Rowe is survived by her husband; by one son, P. R. Rowe, Jr., of Houston; and by one sister, Mrs. Emma Watson of Beaumont."
