Josephine Bowers left her earthly home Saturday (Sept. 2, 2017) to join her "most wonderful" husband and her Heavenly Father.
She was born to the late Joseph and Lizzie Ann Russell Mullens at Coe in Nicholas County on July 8, 1927.
After her marriage on Dec. 22, 1948 to Frank Richard Bowers, she spent most of her 48 years of marriage living in the house he personally built for her and his family in the Monumental Community, which she called her "little bit of heaven."
She was a member of the Monumental United Methodist Church and was an avid quilter, creating many beautiful handmade designs for herself and family members. She delighted in playing with and teaching life skills to all the young children she was around.
She is survived by her brother, Orval Mullens of Whitesville, and her sister, Stella Glover of Mexico. Her sons, Richard (Jane) Bowers and Michael (Joann) Bowers all of Monumental; her beloved grandchildren, Crystal (Jim) Redmond, Stephen (Terrie) Bowers and Keith Bowers of Monumental, Michael (Amanda) Bowers of Sykesville, Maryland, Rachel (Brandon) Hullderman of Bunner Ridge and Joshua (Lynn) Bowers of Poplar Island Road; and her treasured great-grandchildren, Noah Redmond, Charlie and Garrett Hullderman, Ava, Alivia, Samuel, Mason, Elise and Lane Bowers are left with her memories.
Josephine was predeceased by her parents, her husband and her siblings, Verlie Fletcher, Lakie Ocheltree, Anna Bell Hanna and Archie Mullens.
Friends and family may visit from 2-8 p.m. Tuesday and 10-11 a.m. Wednesday at the Ford Funeral Home, 201 Columbia St., Fairmont. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday in the funeral home with Reverend Stephanie Bennett officiating. Interment will follow at the Monumental Cemetery, Monumental.
