Howard, Lovina (1 DEC 1847 - 7 JAN 1932)

Lovina Howard, nee Snyder, was born near Elmira, N.Y., Dec. 1, 1847, and departed this life January 7, 1932, aged 84 years, 1 month and 6 days, at her home in Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.).

In early childhood she moved with her parents to Connecticut and from there to Michigan. When 16 years of age she moved with her parents to Monroe Co., Wis. In 1869 she was married to George C. Howard, who preceded her in death 28 years ago. To this union were born four sons and two daughters. In 1883 she moved with her family to Thorp and was one of the early pioneers of this village. She moved to Canada in 1912 and resided there until her return to Thorp in 1925. When 16 years of age she gave her heart to her Savior and lived a consistent Christian throughout her long life, ministering to those who were in sickness and sorrow, and ever doing all she could to lead others to the Savior. She was a kind and loving mother and a good neighbor. Her gentle and meek disposition endeared her to all who knew her. She was a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, of Withee, Wis., and died in the hope of a soon coming Savior.

She leaves to mourn her loss, six children, Harvey E. Howard, of this village; Henry H. Howard of South Lancaster, Mass; Jesse C. Howard of Spokane, Wash.; Mrs. Dena Dinwiddie of College Place, Wash.; Mrs. Mabel Hann of Okeana, Ohio; Lewis G. Howard of this village; one sister, Mrs. Sarah Barnes, of Ladysmith; ten grandchildren, three great grandchildren, three nieces and six nephews, besides a large circle of friends.

The choir of the Adventist Church of Withee - Gordon Hamel, Mrs. Mabel Baker, Miss Butler, Claude E. hall and Mrs. C.L. Vories, organist, sang the psalms.

The pallbearers were: Isaac Sisco, Amon Sisco, Anton Gulczynski, Ed Fensternmacher, Aug. Stocker and Wm. E. Barrett.
