      ALMA JEAN ORFORD (nee BOWSER)
      In loving memory of Alma Jean Orford (nee Bowser) of Little Current who passed away at her home on Tuesday, July 2, 2002 in her 64th year.
      Daughter of the late Norman and Emma (Graham) Bowser of Billings Township. Alma spent her early days around her Grandfather Graham's store in Kagawong. She shared with her father a love of horses, and was raised around the family sawmill. From her mother she learned to cook and knit,which we all enjoyed over the years; from her delicious meals that she cooked for us (she loved to cook a feast) to the sweaters she made to keep us warm. Then there was her love of animals, she loved them all,from her cats and dogs, to her cows. She loved her time spent at the farm.
      Alma Jean leaves behind her husband Jack of 31 years, her daughter Norma Jean and son-in-law Edward and step grandson Joey. She will be missed by her many nieces and nephews. Auntie Jeannie loved you all.Funeral service was held on Saturday, July 6 at Island Funeral Home with Reverend Frank Haner officiating. Burial: Kagawong Cedar Cemetery.
