Full Text

Mrs. Mary Arabella Bowslaugh, widow of the late William H. Bowslaugh, died at her home in Vinemount on Wednesday, March 1, 1922 in her 93rd year. Mrs. Bowslaugh was of pioneer U.E.L. stock, the daughter of the late Patrick and Catharine (Moore) Sherry, and was connected with many of the old families, whose names are familiar in the annals of the district. She was born in the village of Grimsby but spent the greater portion of her life on the mountain in the Rock Chapel neighbourhood; here she drew about her through the generous, gracious and affectionate nature a host of friends of all ages. She was a woman of exceptionally bright merit, of good education, pure and lofty in her aspiration and held a position in honor that few attain. She was well read in the best literature, thoroughly informed in matters of early history and public events, showing to the very close of her life, that same keenness and brightness of mind that has characterized her life. For some years past Mrs. Bowslaugh had made her home in Vinemount with her son, Leslie and later with his widow. Mrs. Leslie Bowslaugh had passed away only 4 days previously; she herself had been a patient sufferer for 2 years, and her death no doubt hastened that of the elder lady...Surviving there is one daughter, Catharine of Vinemount, and Arthur in the United States. The funeral took place on Friday, March 3 to the Fifty Cemetery, the Rev. J.A. Dilts of Tapleytown circuit conducting the service. The pallbearers were J.A. Althouse, C.E. Barr, W.G.Brand, Victor Harvey, Wesley Harvey, W.H. VanDuzer.
