Bowe, Mary (1861? - 13 Feb. 1939)

Funeral services for Mrs. Mary Bowe, 78, mother of Mrs. Arthur C. Wagner were to be held this morning at her home in Marion, Ohio. Mrs. Bowe died at 8:30 a.m. Monday, following an illness of several weeks.

Mrs. Wagner and son, Chester, left Neillsville late Monday night by automobile to attend the services.

Mrs. Bowe, who visited Neillsville several times and was known by a number of local residents, fell on the ice in Marion during the Christmas holiday season. She fractured her knee cap. However, she was recovering from this injury and was removed to her home from the hospital. According to word received by Mrs. Wagner, Mrs. Bowe apparently suffered an attack of influenza which she was unable to overcome due to her weakness and age.

Mrs. Bowe lived for several years in Beaver Dam, Fox Lake and Edgar, Wis., and moved to Ohio City about 18 years ago from Edgar. Mr. Bowe preceded her in death.

Three sons and two daughters besides Mrs. Wagner survive. They are: Frank, Clarence and mark, all of Marion; and Helen of La Crosse and Mrs. Ben Nilles of Two Rivers. There are several grandchildren and many other relatives.
