She was born January 24, 1869 the daughter of Andrew & Polly Ann "Bowen" Graves of Monroe Co. Indiana
She joined the Baptist Church at Buena Vista when she was a young girl and has been a true lover of Christ and his teachings her entire Life. She has followed the teaching of the Golden Rule unfaltering. She has always been a true and faithful loving wife and mother. Her greatest pleasure was in sacrificing and working for the pleasure of her husband & children and dear relatives & friends. Even to the last, she was uncomplaining and even then regretted to have her loved ones wait upon her.
She leaves to mourn her passing her husband to whom she was united in marriage January 4, 1888 and their six children; Emmet, Jewett, Mrs. Ivan "Hattie" Fowler, Burgess, Fross and Elmer. Also eleven grand-children, one sister Mrs. Henry Floyd, a sister-in-law Mrs. William B. Graves and a host of other relatives & friends.
In the death of Mother Snow, we have lost a dear Wife, Mother, Sister & Friend. Yet our loss is her gain, as it pleased God in his infinite wisdom to remove her from our midst. We bow in humble submission to his divine will knowing he is too wise to err and too just to do no wrong.
