    • The Federal Standard, Friday, September 22, 1961 - OBITUARY – MRS JACK HOWES
      One of Chiltern’s most popular personalities in Mrs. Jack Howes passed away suddenly on Monday morning shortly after 9 a.m. Mrs. Howes was born and raised in Chiltern and had spent the greater part of her life here. During that time her lovely personality and outstanding citizenship endeared her to everybody. Her passing leaves a particularly big gap in the ranks of those willing to help others and this town of ours. Before her marriage, Mrs. Howes was Alice Anne Birthisel, and at the time of her death aged 66 years. Her work was most outstanding as president of the Chiltern Hospital Auxiliary for very many years, and when she was really too ill to be doing such work. She was also foundation president of the Chiltern bowls’ associates, and besides being a capable bowler was beloved by bowlers near and far. She was a fine worker for the club and by over-taxing her health in this regard must have shortened her life. She and her husband were loyal workers of the Presbyterian Church and the death of Mrs. Howes will be deeply felt by Presbyterians and churchgoers throughout the district. On Tuesday afternoon, after a service in the Presbyterian Church at 3 o’clock a large number of cars and mourners followed her remains to the Chiltern New Cemetery where interment was made.
