The B.C. Stowes by Faye Margaret



Lawrence Alonzo  Stowe (Lonny) married Evelyn Cornelia Funk (Evie) on June 3, 1939 in Cowansville?, Quebec.

They lived on the farm and looked after it until Dadís arthritis was so bad, the doctor recommended a trip to a dry climate. Momís sister, Margaret Teel, was in Winfield, B.C. so thatís where they headed, and the rest is history, so they say.

Dad had 5 acres of orchard which he farmed for a few years, then sold 4 of them to the neighbor. He worked in the Fruit Packing plant for a number of years and then in road construction. This took him away from home a lot but he worked hard for his family, and thatís the way it had to be!
