  • Notes 
    • BOWMAN. Catherine, daughter of Jacob and Catherine Martin, was born Jan. 26, 1866; died at her home in Waterloo, Ont., Jan. 17, 1930; aged 63 y. 11 m. 22 d. Death came after a long period of suffering due to internal cancer. The departed had been married twice. Her first husband, Titus Snyder, predeceased her 22 years ago. In 1908 she was again married to Jonas L. Bowman, who survives. Besides her sorrowing husband, she is survived by five daughters (Mabel, Seleda, Alice, Edna, and Elona); also two brothers (Noah and Jacob) and two sisters (Lovina and Hattie). She accepted Christ in her early life and united with the Mennonite Church, where she continued faithful until the end. The presence of the Lord was her constant support during the long weeks of her intense suffering. Shortly before her passing she repeated the Shepherd Psalm, and said, "God be with you till we meet again." Funeral services were held Jan. 20 at the home of the departed, conducted by J. B. Martin and Noah Hunsberger. Text, Jno. 16: 33. Burial in the David Eby Cemetery1a
