Susan had a beauty that defied time.
Generous, patient and compassionate, she consistently helped others in need with her fervent support of the Market Street Mission.
Her family was her world ~ and the love that she bestowed on them every day will be forever remembered.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Donovan Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the
Market Street mission
Mrs. Louisa Graves Owen, the wife of Rev. Dr. F.W. Owen, had been holding women’s Bible study classes in her home. When she realized that almost all of the husbands of the wives in her classes were alcoholics, she and her husband rented the building at 9 Market Street to set up a residential program for alcoholic men. At that time, Market Street was known as Rum Alley or Rum Lane because of all of the bars and saloons on the street.
The Market Street Mission opened its doors on March 18, 1889. From the beginning, the Market Street Mission provided meals, lodging, clothing and temporary employment for homeless men. To this day, the Mission continues to minister to the physical needs - shelter, food, clothing and other necessities - and the emotional and spiritual needs - guidance and life-change programs - of those in the Northern NJ community.
