Warrnambool's Oldest Person

At one hundred and four years of age Warrnambool's oldest person was buried today
In Tower Hill Cemetery Lottie Bowman's last remains at rest forever lay
She lived through two World wars and good and bad economic times knew
In the Human World centenarians are few
She had lived for seven decades past her life's prime
And in seven decades many hours of time
Her great gift of memory she did retain
And all of her faculties till her life's end with her did remain
The oldest living human being that i have ever met
For as long as i live something i will never forget
A beautiful person with many stories to tell
Of her childhood years her memory served her well
Few live to one hundred and four that does seem fair to say
And one of them Lottie Bowman who was buried today.
