BELLVILLE: Nina Marie Mowry, 75, formerly of Ogle Street, Bellville, died Friday afternoon October 18, 2002 in her summer home at Lake Maria following a year-long illness.

She was born January 12, 1927 in Richland County to Delbert and Mary (Hammett) Farst, attended Lexington High School, and was a lifelong area resident.

A homemaker, Nina enjoyed farming in her younger years, and later invested much time and labor operating the Buffalo Run Campground near Loudonville. Her legacy is one of a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother, content to attend to the needs of her family, often with cooking and baking.

She was a member of New Life Church of Christ, Bellville and William O. Naylor Post #43 AMVETS, Bellville, and kept constant companion to her Schnauzer Buddy.

She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law Carolyn and Jerry Black and Nora and Dan Jackson all of Bellville; five sons and daughters-in-law Gary L. and Patti Walker of Douglasville, Pennsylvania, Harland Jr. and Sheila Mowry, Robert C. and Connie Mowry, Gerald V. and Pam Mowry all of Bellville, and Andrew L. and Sally Mowry of Delaware; fifteen grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; two brothers and sisters-in-law Don and Pud Farst of Bellville and Milton and Eileen Farst of Ontario; six sisters and three brothers-in-law Selma Bishop of Mansfield, Margie Dillon of Cape Coral, Florida, Mary Jane and Medford Riddle of Bellville, Nancy and Tom Llewellyn of Butler, Betty Pipes of Mansfield and Beverly and Dave Clever of Lexington; and a sister-in-law Bev Farst of Bellville.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Harland C. Mowry on August 24, 2001; a son Ronald M. Mowry; and two brothers Richard Farst and Paul Farst.

The Bellville Snyder Funeral Home is serving the family with funeral arrangements. To honor Nina’s request, they will celebrate her life with an intimate family gathering.
