Joyce Leone Bowen

September 17, 1930October 10, 2021

Mrs. Joyce Leone Bowen September 17, 1930 - October 10, 2021 Mrs. Joyce Leone Bowen, age 91 passed Sunday, October 10, 2021 at Methodist North Hospital. Joyce was born September 17, 1930 in Bee Branch, Arkansas to the late John and Lillie Duncan. Joyce married the late Louis Clyde Bowen in 1946 and four children were born during their 62 year marriage. She leaves behind her 4 children, Darla Shannon, Tammy Harrison, Ronda Rotnicki, and Tracy Bowen; 8 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. She was a kind, loving, happy and beautiful woman who blessed the lives of her family and friends. The loss of her will forever be felt by everyone that ever met her, everyone’s life that she touched. Joyce always enjoyed the times spent laughing and showing that beautiful smile that will forever live in our hearts. She loved time spent playing hymns on her piano and keyboard, listening to music, playing games, and joking. Her laugh was contagious. The simple little moments that we will miss and we will reflect on until we see her again. More than a Mother, but a friend that can never be replaced, just remembered and loved forever. She will be missed beyond imagination, but will always live with us each day in our hearts. A true angel that will guide us always.

ADD A MEMORY
Karla Bowen Herman

October 14, 2021

I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Joyce! The few precious memories I have of of her are when my siblings and I were growing up—and are fond ones. I wish my children would have had the chance to know her and Uncle Clyde; but time flies by and we are all spread out across the nation, it seems. My heart goes out to all her immediate family from afar. May the God of all comfort help you to endure! Love and Hugs, Karla Bowen Herman (daughter of Clyde's brother, James, and his wife, Dorothy)
