Sympathy Saturday - Florence Bowman Gay

Florence Bowman Gay was my second cousin three times removed. See note at the bottom.


Member of Christ Church Cathedral and Ardent Worker in Guild.

Mrs. Florence Gay, wife of Robert Gay, died at the residence of her husband near Pisgah, Woodford County, last night at 10 o'clock. She had been ill for only a week.

Mrs. Gay's maiden name was Florence Bowman, she being the daughter of John Bowman and a niece of Mrs. Wellington Payne, who is well known throughout Central Kentucky.

Mrs. Gay was a member of Christ Church Cathedral and one of the most valiant workers in the Altar Guild.

The funeral arrangements will be announced later.

Her find-a-grave memorial can be found here.

[Florence was not the daughter of John Bowman, but her death certificate and census records show that she was the daughter of Henry Clay Bowman and Elizabeth Reed. She died from uremic poisoning as a result of childbirth. The infant also died. Florence was 38 years old at the time of her death.]
