      The Obituary of Mary Linder The death occurred at her home here about two p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, July 13th, of Mrs. David Gowing, a well known and esteemed resident of Milverton. She had been ailing for the past nine months and underwent an operation in the hope that her illness, which was of a malignant nature, would be checked but she gradually became worse and death relieved her of her suffering which she bore with true Christian fortitude. Mrs. Gowing, the former Mary Linder was a daughter of the late William and Charlotte Linder, and was born in Elmira on the 17th of March sixty-eight years ago. In 1894 she was married to Mr. David Gowing, of Elmira, by Rev. Mr. Schultz, of the Lutheran Church. They resided in Elmira until 1905 when they moved to Milverton where Mr. Gowing was employed with the Grosch Felt Shoe Co. She was a devoted member of the Methodist Church and later the United Church being a member of the W.M.S., the Ladie's Aid and the Women's Institute as long as she was able to be around. She is survived by her sorrowing husband, two sons and two daughters, (Viola) Mrs Stanley Ohm) of Milverton; Wilfrid L., of Montreal, Que; and (Lottie) Mrs. Alex Cockwell, of Amherstburg. She is also survived by eight grandchildren and her only sister, Mrs. Otto Kreuger, Kitchener, and three brothers George and Samuel Linder, of Kitchener, and William, of Wawotta, Sask. One brother, John, predeceased her. Funeral Friday with service at St. Paul's United Church at 2: 30. Burial in Greenwood Cemetery.
