MRS. JOE DOWELL BURIED HERE FRIDAY

Funeral services for Mrs. Joseph DOWELL, 66, who died at her home in Bedford Wednesday, April 29 [1936], were held at the Baptist church Friday afternoon, conducted by Rev. W. H. HOGE. Burial was made in the New Hope cemetery.

Viola Jane, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James ALLISON [Ann (CLEVE)], was born at Nunica, Mich., January 29, 1870.

While she was still a girl her family moved from Michigan to Iowa, and then to Nodaway County, Mo. Her home had been in Bedford for the past seventeen years.

She was married November 4, 1891 to Joseph T[homas] DOWeLL at Allison, Nodaway County, Mo. Together, they traveled life's way for 45 years, each sharing the other's burden, and God honored them the finest success that can come to any couple by giving them a family, which was the joy of both and in which they found life's greatest interest.

Mrs. DOWELL was kind and patient, sweet in her home and all that a mother ought to be. For a long period she has not been well, but so uncomplaining had she been, that others did not realize that she was rapidly failing in her strength.

She united with the New Hope Baptist church at an early age, later transferring her membership to the East Mission church and then to the Bedford church. She loved the church and in spite of increasing deafness on the part of both, she and her husband have been faithful in attendance. She found one of her greatest sources of happiness in the little group of churchwomen with whom she associated. Her faith in her Lord was a faith unto death, and in faith she lived her life and reared her family.

She is survived by her husband, Joseph T[homas] DOWeLL of Bedford; three daughters and two sons, Mrs. Lottie OVERTON of Diagonal; Irvin DOWELL of Diagonal; Mrs. Lela SNYDER, Grant DOWELL and Mrs. Beatrice BEAVER of Bedford. There are also twenty-three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Of the family of twelve of which she was a member, there are four who survive her. They are George ALLISON of Hopkins, M. O. ALLISON of Palisades, Calif., Mrs. Amy CLARY of Bedford, and Milo ALLISON of Hopkins.

One daughter, Mrs. Retta HENRY, and one son, Earnest L[loyd] DOWELL, preceded their mother in death.
