Faithe Eileen Mowry

February 15, 1926 ‒ June 17, 2016

Bellville, Ohio

BELLVILLE: Faithe Eileen Mowry went home to be with the Lord Friday, June 17, 2016 from Ohio Health Mansfield Hospital following a sudden illness. She was 90. Now absent from the body, Faithe is singing with Clyde in her eternal home.

She was born February 15, 1926 to parents Lewis & Hazel (Watts) Berry in Galion and was a graduate of Galion High School with the class of 1944.
On April 30, 1950, Faithe married Clyde L. Mowry and they shared 58 wonderful years of marriage until he passed away in 2008. They are now together again.

A longtime Bellville resident, Faithe worked as a cafeteria and playground aide for Bellville Elementary School. She was an active member of Pleasant Grove Community Church where she led the singing, directed the choir, and taught Sunday school for many years.
In spare time, she took pleasure in traveling, camping in their motor home, and helping Clyde with the John Deere business. But above all, Faithe cherished spending time with her family.

She is survived by son and daughter-in-law Chris and Earlene Mowry of Radnor, daughter Colleen Mowry of Mansfield; two grandsons and wives Nathan & Amanda Mowry of Delaware and Matthew & Renee Mowry of New Carlisle; four great grandchildren Elijah, Wesley, Levi, and Anna Mowry; a sister and her husband Elaine and Marion Bowman of Bellville; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.
In addition to her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her parents and a sister Vivian (Emery) Armstrong.

The Mowry family would like to extend a special thanks to the staff at Mansfield Memorial Homes and OhioHealth Home Health Care for their care and compassion.

The family will receive friends Monday, June 20, 2016 from 3-7 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home. Her funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday in the Pleasant Grove Community Church. Pastor Ken Kinley will officiate and burial will follow in Bellville Cemetery.

Contributions in her memory to the Pleasant Grove Community Church or to Gideon’s International may be made at her services.

  • All my love and prayers to all of the family. Many memories of times that we were all together. Never think of the fourth of July and Nathan’s first birthday party without picturing Faith.

  • I am so sorry to hear about the loss of such a special lady- but more importantly, your mom and grandma. Praying God’s peace and comfort.

  • Remembering a special aunt today, and praying for her family. Sorry that I am in California. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Faithe’s love for her Lord and music has impacted many lives and we know she is rejoicing with those she loves in glory. Her ‘Berry laughter’ & delight for family personified her long life. “Welcome Home good & faithful servant.”

  • Colleen and Family,
    We are so sorry at the passing of Faith. Through the years she has been such a wonderful neighbor to us and others. God Bless you and your family.

  • Chris and Colleen, So sorry to hear this news. Your parents were so well known in our Clear Fork River Valley community. They could be seen together at so many of the local festival events, shopping, school functions and much volunteer work . The Armstrong family reunion is this Sunday at the New Life Church in Bellville. We will , of course, mark the passing of your Mother in the family’s ledger . Many of our school friends share this new journey without our Moms & Dads . It has been of great comfort to me, as I hope it will become to you both, as well, that those who remembered our parents will remind us, fondly of precious moments from the past . As time passes in the next days, months, years – reflect often on those things from Clyde & Faithe that have build your character and guided your paths . You two were their pride & joy . It was so evident to all they encountered. You are truly their living legacy . God bless you both..
    Most sincerely,
    Nancy Lee ( Kunkle ) Gregg
