OBITUARY - JOSEPH THOMAS LOWER

Tom LOWER who was taken to the hospital at St. Joseph, Missouri, last week passed away early Sunday morning. The funeral service was held at the Methodist church Tuesday afternoon conducted by the Rev. BESSINGER. The music was by a mixed quartet composed of Mrs. Albert LEVI, Dorothy LEWIS, Oliver LOCK and John Dean PICKERING, with Edythe Mary LEDGERWOOD accompanist.

The pall bearers were: George DePEW, Jess CLARK, Ed LOCK, Ray WALKER, Lewis COY and Clint HILL. Interment was in the cemetery at Guss. The following obituary was read:

Joseph Thomas LOWER son of John and Sevilla Ellen LOWER was born at New Market, Iowa July 14, 1886, and departed this life at the Methodist Hospital, St. Joseph, Missouri, March 12, 1939, aged 52 years, 7 months, and 26 days.

Losing his mother when he was eight months old, he was reared by his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J. T. COMBS who preceded him in death some years ago. With them he made his home; first at Guss, Iowa and later at Humeston, Iowa. In 1905 the family moved to Beaconsfield, Iowa where on March 22, 1910 he was married to Neva MacKEY. To this union two children were born: Mrs. Leslie ANDERSON and Genevieve who with his wife and one grandchild, Patsy Ann ANDERSON survive to mourn the passing of a beloved husband and father. A step-mother, four half brothers and two half sisters survive him. His father passed away in 1928. Since 1912 the family has made Gravity their home. Tom loved his fellow men and in turn was beloved by them. He adored his family and was happiest when they were with him. Kindness and honesty marked his dealings with all and he will be greatly missed in a community that has known him so long.
