Edith Mae Smith Bower
Birth: Aug. 9, 1886
Kansas, USA
Death: Oct., 1977
Chanute
Neosho County
Kansas, USA

******************************
CONTRIBUTOR'S NOTE: Edith Mae Smith was buried beside her 3rd husband, Lee R. Cox, seemingly because the stone was already engraved with her name. Also the space beside her final husband, John A. Bower, already had his first wife laid in it.

*******************************
An interesting tidbit is that Edith's son, Duane, from her marriage to Floyd Zieger, married John A. Bower's daughter, Joan, from his first marriage to Lotus. This made Edith the mother-in-law of her step-daughter.

*********************************
Marriage 1: Robert H. Harper, Jan. 1, 1907, Neosho County, KS.
Children: Glenda Cecelia Harper

Marriage 2: Floyd T. Zeiger
Children: Carroll Duane "Duane" Zeiger

Marriage 3: Lee Roy Cox

Marriage 4: John Alexander Bower, 1959, Anaheim, CA

Good morning Edith, I'm sending you home to the care of your great-grandson. I'm sure that my cousin John would like that for you as he was a very family oriented man. Rest in peace with your family.
