Bridgewater Bulletin, dated April 3, 1917.

The death of Mrs. Louisa Bowers, eldest daughter of the late Rev. Dr. Cossman of Lunenburg, took place at her residence, Bridgewater,on Saturday afternoon. She was the widow of the late Rev. W.W. Bowers, a former Lutheran pastor of Bridgewater. She leaves three sons, Captain Charles; Reverend Fred of Philadelphia; and Walter, manager of the Royal Bank of Canada, Shubenacadie. The late Miss Mary Bowers was the only daughter. Mrs. Bowers was 79 years of age, and had been in ill health for some time. She was a lady of rare intelligence and strength of character, and when able to get about she was noted for her charitable acts. She was born in Lunenburg, but spent the greater portion of her life in this town for she loved it and its associations and the many friends here. In the earlier days of her widowhood she kept a store on King Street and became widely known. The funeral will take place from St. Paul's Church this afternoon, Rev. G.B. Pifer officiating.
