Obituary

Luverne Russ Bowen (88) was called home to Heaven on October 3, 2017. She was born May 30, 1929 to Allen Claud Russ and Minnie Bell Slay Russ in Glendale, FL. She married the love of her life, Henry Bowen on February 15, 1947 and together they created a legacy of pure love that they shared with all who knew them and instilled their qualities in their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Henry, her brothers Barton Russ, Broward Russ, Howard Russ, Ralph Wilkerson, and her sister Luvene Galfano and special sister-in-law Imogene Russ. Left to cherish her memories and carry on her traditions of love and servitude is her son John (Tina) Bowen and daughters Marilyn (John) Burford and Kathy Jo (Ed) Vallimont. She also shared life with her 11 grandchildren; Dusty Bowen, Wesley Clark, John P. Bowen, Lacey Clark, Jake (Michelle) Noa, Tony (Tasha) Bowen, Victor (Liz) Clark, Rachel Clark, Bryan (Karen) Noa, Nathan (Arezoo) Noa, and Tracy (Noli) Hedaria; her 28 great-grandchildren, Kayla M., David, Rebecca, Sierra, Kelsey, Blake, Kayla C., Nakiya, Noli, Brittney, Lilli, Hailee, Wyland, Coral, Sarah, Bryson, Maddison, Sidney, Avery, Madison C., Daniel, Julia, Levi, Victoria, William, Lola, Jadyn, and Olivia; and her great-great grandson, Brayden.  She is also survived by her sister Thelma Colvin, sister-in-law Dorothy Russ, and her “adopted daughters” Henrietta Morse and the Banfell girls; especially Alison Patane and Gretchen Patti.  Her special cousins, Patricia and Eddie Mayo made her life fun by taking her out to eat and to karaoke. We want to thank Covenant Hospice for their help during Mama's last days here on Earth. We especially want to thank and express our love to her grandson Jake, who never left her side in her last days and hours and the constant care he gave her.  Bunchie, as she was so lovingly called by many, lived her life to the fullest and everything she did was out of love for her family and friends. Everyone who entered her home was treated like family. Her love radiated in the food she cooked for us and the kindness and love she portrayed. We will miss you more than words can ever express. You will remain eternally in our hearts and minds with many happy memories Bunchie. We love and miss you mama. Pallbearers will be her grandsons Visitation will be Saturday 10:00 a.m. October 7, 2017 at Waters & Hibbert Funeral Home with services following at 12:00 noon.

There are no words that can make it easier during the loss of such a wonder person. From all the gatherings at Bunchie's house it's very obvious how much she and her family are loved. We will miss her in the window waving and blowing kisses to my Dad as we rolled down to Sanders Beach. Know all of you are in our thoughts and prayers.Love,Kenneth, Dixie, Mike, Cole and Emily your Sanders Beach family ~ Dixie Wilkinson, Pensacola, Florida
