Powers, Anna M. (23 OCT 1854 - 23 AUG 1925)

Anna Marie Powers, wife of the late Charles R. Powers, died on Sunday, Aug. 23, 1925, at her home just east of the city (Owen, Clark County, Wis.), after a lingering illness of nearly a year. Anna Maria Cummings was born at Plymouth, Sheboygan Co., Wis. Oct. 23, 1854, and while a small child moved with her parents to Dunn Co., where she resided until April 25, 1878, when she was united in marriage to Charles R. Powers. Five children were born to this union, Orpha Katherine, the eldest, dying in infancy. In the year 1908 the family moved to Owen, where they purchased a large farm, and since then have made this their home.

Mrs. Powers was a home loving person, a good mother, and a kind in every respect, and led a Christian life. She worked hard to rear her family and it has only been in the last few years that she has not been able to do all her own work. In July her husband died very suddenly, and since then her health has rapidly failed, and it was only at times that she was able to sit up, being confined to her bed most of the time. In her passing a good mother has been lost, a kind neighbor and a friend to those who had met her.

Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon from the Congregational Church, Rev. W. P. Powell officiating, and burial took place in the family lot at Riverside Cemetery. She leaves to mourn her loss, four children: Mrs. Julius Johnson, Elwin A. Powers and Reuben C. Powers, all of Owen; Mrs. Thomas J. Haas of Withee; five grandsons and three brothers, De Estin J. Cummings, and Eugene O. Cummings of Menomonie, and Leander C. Cummings of Lambert, Mont.

Those from away who came to attend the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Cummings, Mr. and Mrs. D. J. Cummings, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Harshmann, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Harshmann, Mrs. Jennie DeMoe, Martin and James Welsh, Bert Cummings, Boyd Harshmann, all of Menomonie; Mrs. Ed Cummings, Mrs. Melvin Vaughn and Mrs. Lester Jones of Conrath.
