Martha Eunice BANNON

no name/date of newspaper - found in old scrapbook

One writer has said, "To change and change is life," this is true. Nothing that comes into
existence is destroyed; in only changes conditions and existence; and what
we call death is only stepping out of this life into another to live forever
somewhere. So the subject of this sketch has left us. "Martha Eunice Bannon
was b. in Ohio, Oct 26, 1854, of pious christian parentage. Her parents came
to this state when she was 4. Her life was that of the ave. country girl.
Among her childhood memories fondly cherished were those of the famous old
Tippecanoe battlegrounds where she played so often. She was converted in
early childhood and united with the Meth. Church and was a member at the
time of her death. She was marr. to GW Sowers Aug 1869 an her life since
that time has beeen spent in this community and is like an open book before
us. The testimony of her family is taht she was a faithful wife, a good
indulgent mother. She was a good neighbor and already to lend a helping hand
in time of need. Her last act was one of mercy and helpfulness for one of
her neighbors. She slipped quietly away to meet her maker on the evening of
Nov 30, 1918 leaving a record of 64 years. Three children preceded her ind
eath and three are still livnig, Ora of Terre Haute; Mrs. Calude Philpott of
Covington and ralph of Topeka Ks. The fun. was held in the Meth Church on
the monring of Dec

at 10 o'clock conducted by Lee Wesley, Burial in Harveysburg cem.
