OBITUARY OF DAISY OMAR (DRUIN) BOWMAN
On January 19, 1924, at 6:35 Saturday morning, the death Angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Marshall and Lucinda B. (Terry) Druin and claimed for its victim, after an illness of nine days, the beloved mother, daughter, wife and sister, Daisy Omar (Druin) Bowman of Pike View.
She was born on October 20, 1896 and married Johnie Bowman on January 19, 1919. They were the parents of two children: Mary Rosetta (November 14, 1919 - July 3, 1920) and Benjamin (Bennie) Thomas Bowman (born March 15, 1922).
She bore her suffering patiently, never complaining even though she suffered constantly throughout her illness. Surely no one could go through with more physical pain than she did, but we know that is all over now and that she is at rest. She told us a few moments before she died that she hated to leave, but she wanted to live up yonder too. She said she was perfectly willing and ready to go. Her last few moments seemed perfectly easy, and gradually dropped off to sleep in Jesus.
There is a vacant spot in our home that can never be filled. Our family circle has been broken and can never on earth again be reunited, but we are glad of the fact that we have an opportunity of meeting her in Heaven, together with her little daughter who preceded her a few years ago.
Daisy professed faith in Christ and joined the church at the age of fourteen and has lived a true Christian ever since.
Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Jewell at Pike View Church, and the remains were laid to rest in the Pike View Cemetery by the careful management of Mr. C. H. Dixon of Magnolia.
Our darling has been called from our home, away from the hearts that loved her so to join the Angels around the throne and live in that city whiter than snow. Her body has been placed in the tomb and shut from our view, but our hearts still ache for memories are fresh and love remains true. She is living in Heaven where pain and suffering are no more, but she will never be forgotten by her loved ones here below.
