Eulogy

A. B. Lowry, Deceased

Pembroke - We now come to pay due respects to our deceased Brother and Friend, A. B. Lowry.

Brother Lowry, the son of the late Calvin and Mariah Lowry, was born October 26, 1862, and departed from this life at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 26, 1944, thus having lived to the ripe age of 81 years and 7 months.

In early life he associated himself with the Methodist Church and proved to be a most loyal member and leader.

During his life he was united in marriage twice. He was first married to Miss Josephine Amelia Moore, who departed this life in 1900. To this union were born 8 children, five of whom survive - Cottie Amelia, Plummer W., Bertie I., O. H. Elry and Zeb Abner Lowry.

To his second union, he was married to Miss Rosa E. Bell, who survives, and to this union were born 10 children, nine of which survive - Ira Pate, Luler M., Carlee Stetson, Bernard Franklin Steel, Theodore McLean, Prebble M., Jason Brisco, Eunice Hazel, and Bernice Amelia Lowry.

Brother Lowry was well known and admired for his leadership in Sunday school, church, civic affairs, business and farming.

His departure is a distinct loss to the community and his host of friends.
