Owen, Hattie E. (Bundy) 1864-1932 Obituary

Former Morris Resident Passes Away at Batavia

Morris, Oct. 25---Mrs. Hattie E. Bundy Owen, a former resident of this village, died at her home in Batavia at 7 o'clock Friday evening following a 16 months' illness of a complication of diseases. The funeral was held at Batavia, following which the remains were brought to this village for burial beside her parents in Hillington cemetery. Rev. E. E. Hutchinson, pastor of Zion Episcopal church here, read the Episcopal committal service at the grave.
Those who came here from Batavia to attend the services were the deceased's husband, Mr. and Mrs. Hodge and a cousin, Alice E. Dennis of Buffalo.
Born in New Lisbon June 17, 1864, a daughter of Elon and Louisa (Cruttenden) Bundy, Mrs. Owen was educated at the state school for the blind at Batavia. On May 23, 1906, she married Clarence A. Owen, who survives. She was a loving mother to Mr. Owen's children by a former marriage, Mrs. Mildred (Owen) Hodge of Batavia and Harold E. Owen of Tucson, Ariz., who mourn her loss as a parent.

Comment: Louisa (Cruttenden) Bundy was the daughter of William and Phebe (Thurber) Cruttenden. William was brother to Albert and Hannah Cruttenden. All three were among the children of Jeremiah and Mary (Brooks) Cruttenden. 

Hattie's mother's obituary states her maiden name was Wallace.  Yet, Hattie's obituary states it was Cruttenden.  Will add info as find it to clarify this.
