    • The death occurred yesterday of Mrs. Janie Elizabeth Bowlby Clement, widow of the late E. P. Clement, K.C., at her residence, 214 King Street South, Waterloo. Mrs. Clement was 84 years of age. Of United Empire Loyalist stock, a daughter of the late Dr. and Mrs. D. S. Bowlby, Mrs. Clement was born in Kitchener on April 18, 1858. Although she was the oldest child, her two brothers and two sisters all predeceased her. Her husband died on August 22, 1924. A member of Trinity United Church, Mrs. Clement had been active in the Women's Missionary Society since its organization in 1890, as well as in the Ladies' Aid and other church societies. Interested in all community welfare enterprises, she was the first secretary of the Kitchener-Waterloo Hospital Ladies' Auxiliary, formed in January, 1895, and the first corresponding secretary of the Kitchener Y.W.C.A. Board, established in April, 1905. She leaves to mourn three sons, Charles B. of Toronto, Edwin O. of Penetang and William P. of Kitchener, and two daughters, Mrs. Fred B. Kelly of Guelph and Miss Florence Clement of Waterloo. Another son, David Ward, was killed in the First Great War on Dec. 3, 1917, while engaged in air operations in France. There are also surviving four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. The funeral service will be held at the Schreiter-Sandrock Funeral Home on Friday afternoon at 2: 30 o'clock.
