      Bowman. - Sister Anna Cressman, wife of Pre. Samuel S Bowman, passed peacefully away at her home near Berlin, Ont., Sept. 21, 1908. Sister Bowman was a patient sufferer for about eleven months from a complication of diseases, having heart trouble, dropsy and also an abscess on one of the lungs. During about ten weeks of her sickness her mind was affected to such an extent that she remembered nothing about what occurred during that time. Two weeks before the end came her mind was fully restored. It was like waking from a long sleep. From that time on she was perfectly conscious until death relieved her of all earthly cares and sorrows. Sister Bowman realized that her end was drawing near and expressed her desire to depart this life and be with the Lord. She left a bright hope for the future. She was a consistent member of the Mennonite Church for many years. She leaves a sorrowing husband, three step-children, seven brothers and three sisters to mourn her departure. The funeral was held Aug 31, at the Berlin Church. The services at the home were conducted by Urias Weber and at the church by Bishops Daniel Wismer and Jonas Snider, who spoke from the texts, Rev. 14:13 and Rom. 6:23. She was aged 64 y. 7 m. 132a
