Rossie Bowman Dead
The people of this town and community were deeply pained and shocked Tuesday morning when they learned of the sudden death of Mrs. Rossie Bowman at the home of her mother in this city. Mrs. Bowman had been ailing for the past two months, but no serious complications set in until the latter part of last week, when it was decided that an operation was necessary. Dr. O'Brien of Beloit was sent for and he and Dr. Davis performed the operation Sunday. Mrs. Bowman became so weakened that she could not rally from the shock, and died about 6 o'clock Tuesday morning. The technical cause of her demise was inanition and Toxaemia.
Mrs. Bowman leaves to mourn her loss a husband and one little boy besides other relatives and a host of friends. She was a true wife and mother whose loss will be sadly felt by not only those near and dear to her, but by the whole community.
The funeral services will be held at the home of Mr. & Mrs. M. H. Copeland this afternoon and the body interred in the new cemetery. An obituary will be in next week's paper.

Rosie Belle Copeland was born at Potomac, Vermillion County, Illinois on March 11, 1877. With her parents she moved to Logan, Kansas in 1879 where she has since lived. She received her education in our public schools, graduating in the class of 1899. She was converted in 1895 and joined the M. E. Church.
She was married to John Bowman on May 7, 1902. to this union one child, a boy, Keith, was born on November 20, 1907.
She passed to the beyond on October 15, 1912, at 6:30 in the morning. She leaves to mourn her loss, a husband, one son, a father and mother, besides a large number of other relatives and friends.
The funeral services were conducted at the home of her parents, M. H. Copeland and wife, Thursday afternoon. Rev. G. M. Ryder conducted the services, assisted by Elder H. P. Clark. The music was furnished at the house and the cemetery by a ladies' quartette. The floral offerings were profuse, sent in by the friends and relatives of the deceased. The last sad rites were touching indeed, the loved ones finding it hard to give up wife, mother and daughter. Mrs. Bowman was a woman who loved her home and fireside - a lady honored and esteemed by all her acquaintances. One of her last requests was that her husband should raise their little boy, Keith, a Christian. Prayers were offered that her life might be spared to husband and little boy, but it seemed God's will that she leave them.
The funeral services were attended by a large number of sympathizing friends who paid their last respects to this good woman who had "fought the good fight and finished her course."
