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
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."
