Owens taught in Baltimore for almost half a century, including Sunday school at the Union Square Methodist Episcopal Church.
Most of her hymns were written for her Sunday school students. Much of her poetry appeared in the Methodist Protestant and the Christian Standard.
If you know where to get a good photo of Owens (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you send us an e-mail?
