She loved gardening in the summer and cooking for her family, friends and for anyone who was hungry. She fed our soul with her love and grace. She always put you first and was always there for the community, Church, and family.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her loving husband of 64 years, Ralph Bowling. Two brothers Mathew and Wayne Easter and Two sisters Mary Matherly and Fannie White and special friend Margaret Crews.
