Wednesday's Child - Kelsey Kathryn Rowden

Easton Express 04MAY1976
Another little one's obituary that I saw when transcribing my aunt Lillian's obituary.  Always heartbreaking, but it's so important to remember these children who only blessed their family's for a short period, but are undoubtedly missed.

"Rowden Infant

Kelsey Kathryn Rowden, infant daughter of Mr and Mrs James Rowden, 216 Fairview Ave, Wind Gap, died yesterday in Easton Hospital where she was admitted earlier in the day.

She was born on March 9 in East Stroudsburg.  Her mother is the former Alana Fulmer.

Survivors include a brother, Adam, at home; her paternal grandparents, Mr and Mrs Frederick G Rowden, Wind Gap; her maternal grandparents, Mr and Mrs Alan A Fulmer, Hellertown; her paternal great-grandmother, Mrs Nora Martocci, North Bangor; her maternal great-grandparents, Mr and Mrs Howard Kemp, Hellertown; and her maternal great-grandmother, Mrs Helen Lerch, Easton.

The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Hope United Church of Christ, Wind Gap.  Interment will be in Fairview Cemetery, Pen Argyl.  Arrangements were made by the Hough Home for Funerals, Bangor."

Rest in peace little Kelsey.
