Obituary MARY SCHOWENGERDT (Dec. 6, 1853 - Jan. 7, 1932)

Mary Schowengerdt, nee Forderhase, was born Dec. 6, 1853, at Berger, Mo. On March 16, 1876, she was married to Herman L. Schowengerdt, then moved to Warren County, Missouri, where they lived 15 years. They then move to Chamois, living here the remainder of her life, with the exception of the last eighteen months, which she spent at the home of her daughter, Mrs. D. E. Cramer in St. Louis.
She was preceded in death by her husband, March 9, 1920; her son Robert J., March 13, 1924 and one daughter in infancy. She leaves to mourn her loss, three sons, George B. and Edward R. of Chamois, Walter O. and Margaret (Mrs. D. E. Cramer) of St. Louis; two brothers, Henry and Edward Forderhase; one sister, Mrs. Lizzie Helmendach; three daughters-in-law; one son-in-law; eleven grand-children and numerous relatives and friends. She was reared in a Christian family and was a life long member of the Methodist Church. Funeral services were conducted at the Methodist Church Sunday afternoon, where a large crowd of people had gathered to pay their last respects to the memory of the departed and to the sorrowing family. Quite a large delegation from Berger, Cedar City and Independence was in attendance. Interment was made in the Bode cemetery (Obituary is courtesy of Bob Snyder).
