"Dies at His Home in Skidmore Thursday
J. M. Bowlin Dies Soon After His Return from Springfield, Where He Had Been for His Health
J. Marion Bowlin, a well known resident of Skidmore, died at 6 o'clock Thursday morning at his residence in Skidmore. Mr. Bowlin had been in failing health for fifteen years and had with his wife spent the winter in Springfield, Mo., where he had gone for the benefit of his health. On his return some fifteen days ago, he came up town feeling some better and voted at the school election on the 2nd inst. He soon took a change for the worse and gradually grew weaker until the end.
Mr. Bowlin has resided in Skidmore eleven years, during which time he has made many friends who now join the sorrowing ones in mourning his loss.
Mr. Bowlin was a good upright citizen, a kind neighbor, and a devoted husband and father.
For a number of years he had been a great sufferer. His health having given away so completely that for the last four years he was unable to do practically no work and to spend much of that time in suffering which refused to yield to medical skill.
During all these years of suffering his devoted wife has never failed to do all that the most faithful companion could possibly do.
Our sympathy goes out to her, in this her hour of sorrow and trial, but words fail at such an hour a this and we can but commit the bereaved to Him who alone can comfort the sorrowing and heal the broken hearted.
The funeral services were held at the M. E. Church, South, and were conducted by the pastor Rev. S. Raub. Interment was made in the Masonic Cemetery.
