Owen Oliver Lewis

I was born on August 3rd, 1931 in St. Louis, Missouri but spent  my
early years off and on in Annapolis, Missouri. Passed away November 17, 2012.

Our family lived in an old house on Mill Street in Annapolis - located
just west of the railroad tracks. Grandpa Jullen Lewis  build a four
room house in 1925 from lumber that was salvaged from the tornado that
destroyed Annapolis that year. After our family moved to St. Louis
grandfather R.T. Mann lived in that house.
My sisters and I (Norma Loraine, Marjorie, June Bernice, and Doris
Marie) attended the Annapolis school system until the early 1940’s.
As a young man in Annapolis I  would have to cut a rack of wood every
day in the winter just to keep the house warm. The only insulation was
newspaper and cardboard tacked to the walls. ( This was typical for most
rural homes of the time including the James Wesley Lewis homestead.)
At times I would sometimes stay at the Lewis family homestead for a few
days with aunt Mayme (Lewis) Beckman, uncle Herb Beckman and their adopted son - Bobby. Herb, Bobby and myself would sometimes go to a grist mill on Big Creek
with three sacks of corn. The mill would grind it into corn meal and
keep a third of the grind as their fee. The fee was the same for
grinding wheat. Bobby and I enjoyed taking the mule named "Jack" swimming in the Black River. We would ride him off the Bluff into the river. Even the mule
enjoyed these outings and it made one hell-a-vah splash. After we
finished swimming we rode Jack home and placed him into the barnyard.
The mule was so exhausted that he hid from Uncle Herb when he called
him. Mom would often send me to the store and I would stop by uncle Dave
Worley’s Black Smith Shop on the way. I remember Uncle Dave once asked
me to turn the blower for the forge as he was firing iron horse shoes
for a horse waiting to be shod. When I asked him when should I stop he
said “I will tell you when.” After some time the shoes turned red hot and when Dave finally remembered to tell me to stop he excitedly said “You burnt the shoes up.” He should have known I was not a black smith! Uncle Dave also kept some cattle. He would  pay me a nickle to bring his cows from the other side of Big Creek back home.  He always would say “Don’t ride the cow” thinking it would cause the cow to loose
weight. "For a nickel do you think I was going to walk?"
Uncle Dave was also the town marshall for many years. I remember the old
jail across from his black smith shop (off from Main Street).  It was a
simple barred 10’ x 12’ room with one small barred window at the top
of the ceiling. Uncle Dave would feed the prisoners a simple bologna
sandwich once a day. The local citizens said that before uncle Dave became the town marshall a woman could not walk down the street at the end of the month because
of the vulgarity of drunk loggers. My dad (Olin) and I would often walks to the family farm. He would walk me to death. Sometimes we would stop by and visit with Emma Funk. Dad owned 350 acres of timberland on the Black River just down from the
James Wesley Lewis farm. Local loggers would steal the timber whenever
they knew my dad was not in town (1940’s). The family knew who was
doing it but could not prove it since no one could catch them in the
act. Carl Dean Funk, (my cousin) and I used to go up and down Big Creek
shooting snakes with a .22 rifle. We would also sometimes find and eat a
plant we called “Paw Paw” - a poor persons banana.
My mom’s brother - Everett Mann - owned the filling station at the
intersection of highway K and 21. My uncle Ed Mann was the town barber. The cost of my haircut was .10cents. Ed also owned a couple of cabins just below the Mann Cemetery. There was a big spring that came out of the Black River bank where the water was about 2 feet deep and really cold. Uncle Ed had a box in the spring
where he kept watermelons to cool. Wood Stacks on the corner of the box
held it in place. Bobby and I would pull the box up and feast on the
melons under a shade tree. When Ed would go to get his melons half of
them would be gone. Ed never knew we were the guilty parties since
everybody knew the box was there. ld man Wadlow was the game warden. They said he even arrested his other for not having a fishing license. I remember one time when Carl Dean Funk and I went fishing when we heard the warden’s old flatbed
truck drive up. Carl  would run and Wadlow would chase after him. After
some 500 yards  he stopped and was caught. Wadlow asked for his license
and Carl showed it to him. Wadlow then asked “Why were you running?”
Carl would laugh and say “I thought you were going to beat me.”
Charlie Bolch owned the town hardware store. Charlie would leave a
tablet on the front porch. If you needed something and he was not there
you would write down what you took and you could stop by later and pay
for it. Try to do that today.
Cy Jackson had the best grocery store in town. It had cracker barrels
and a meat case without refrigeration. The odor was always strong and
you smelled the bacon when you walked in. It was located at the highway
K and 49 intersection by the old post office - the first building on the
right. It was a true country floor with paraffin oil floors.
Sherman Sherril (Virginia Sherrils’ father-in law) had a saw mill
behind our house. It produced mining timbers, railroad ties, and general
lumber in the rough.
Our family moved to St. Louis (Park Ave.) about 1940 and periodically
returned to Annapolis whenever things got tight. The family sometimes
even took in other relatives in need -(Walter Lewis) as one example.
I graduated from McKinley high school in 1946. thereafter I had a series
of jobs - working for a box company, General Motors auto assembly line
(1949), and serving in the US. Army from 1950-54 as a service engineer.
From 1954 to 1964 I served in the active U.S. Reserves.
In 1954 I started working for Holekamp Lumber in the mill shop making
doors, windows, etc. I worked along side with my father (Owen Lewis).
In 1955 I was married to Shirley Perez and started working as a
carpenter until I retired at age 62. My wife Shirley and I had six wonderful children (Guy Olin, Gay Arnold,Terri Ann, Thomas Eugene, and Steven Theodore plus many grandchildren nd great grandchildren.) I hope to write more when I have more time. Thank you cuz for getting me along this far.

Owen will be interned next spring by family in the Annapolis Cemetery, Iron County, Missouri. He will rest in the family plot with his wife and parents (Olin Lewis and Grace Mann).

Bob is survived by his loving children Darrell Bloomner, Vicki Landwehr, Debby Anderson and Robin Taff.  He is unbelievably loved and cherished by his Grandchildren Darrell Bloomner, Billie Bloomner, Eddie Bloomner, Heather Kluemper, Jessica Howard, Joshua Taff, Casey Hahn and Megan Anderson.  He has loved, rocked and spoiled countless great grandchildren and adopted friend's children as well.
Bob was met in heaven by his loving, adoring and amazing wife of 50+ years our "Nanny" Dolly Dean Bloomner.  Although family and friends will miss the warm hugs, and laughter, our hearts are forever grateful for the joy and memories that each visit, each call, each year and minute that we have been blessed with- to our sweet Dad, our PaPa, Poppy-roo, brother and friend, until we see you again, know that you are with us like a handprint on our heart.
