Mrs. Paula Bowers

October 9, 1953February 14, 2021

Paula Bowers, 67, of Little Rock Arkansas passed away peacefully on Sunday February 14, 2021. Paula was born in Little Rock to JD and Dorothy Coney on October 9, 1953.

Paula never met a stranger. She was a light of joy and inspiration to all who knew her. She always showedlove to others through actions and could always be counted on when you were in need, rather if it was through her 35 years of being a Register Nurse in Arkansas or SCA ( Society for Creative Anachronism) where she became Countess and member of the Order of the Pelicans.

Paula loved the life on the farm caring for the cows (especially excited over the baby calves), horses, and her two dogs. She was a crafty individual. She had a great passion for knitting, bringing back the old ways of the spinning wheel or weaving, glass blowing handcrafted beads, gardening, and watching and listening to the birds. She always enjoyed the great outdoors especially when it came to deer hunting or going to Calico Rock to trout fish with her husband.

She was preceded in death by her Mother Dorothy B. Coney and Father JD Coney and many Aunts and Uncles.

She is survived by her husband David W. Bowers of 31 years ( Little Rock, Arkansas), her sister Pamela D Coney (Benton, Arkansas), her brother Bryan H. Coney (Bald Knob, Arkansas) four children Shane and Cindy Jacobsen (Pittsburg, Texas), Shawn and Cindy Jacobsen (Oviedo, Florida), Sharon and William Hyche (Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota) and Shannon and Ben Condie (Sandy, Utah) and 15 grandchildren.

At this time the family has decided to have a celebration of life ceremony in the summer of 2021

Paula was a sister-friend for many, many years. I see her in the pasture with the horses, spinning and weaving and riding to events with her. I have gone with her to Gulf Wars for so many years and so many memories of there.
I will miss her so much.

There was so much more to Paula than the obituary tells. She never met a stranger. She was a RN. She worked and went to school too. That's tough. She and David, her husband used to do Civil War reenactment together for years. Paula cooked over a campfire at the reenactment, drove a team and wagon, rode a horse sidesaddle, cooked dinners for these guys complete with crystal and china and the works. They loved her. The first time she cooked on the campfire, she caught the tail of her dress on fire, but thank the Lord they got her put out with no injury. She hunted and fished, She killed more deer than David. They had a lot in common and spent many happy years together. She sewed, knitted, crocheted, did weaving, carded and spun yarn to knit with on a spinning wheel. Then she dyed her yard herself. She did calligraphy and painting. She made glass beads, and she cared for and loved her family and friends. She lived her life to the fullest, as we all should. I'm so proud of her and love her so much. You couldn't ask for a better sister.

Tree was one of the most welcoming people I have ever met. She was upfront and stern but was always there when you needed her. She will be missed so very much!

Billy and I will miss you. We all were friends well before the SCA and had many great adventures. It will feel so strange not having you around. Whenever we go to places were we all have been, I will be looking for you.

Paula, you touched my family in so many ways. I will miss you greatly. My children considered you their grandmother and two crumbled to the floor when they heard the news of your passing. You were a fighter and a loyal friend who will be missed. More than that - you will be remembered. Stories of your life, your dreams, your fears and your hopes will all be remembered.

I pray your children know how very proud you were of them and of your grands. The stories you shared about them and David will always remain in my memories. I will miss you, my friend. Until we meet again.

Paula was a special person in so many lives. She will be missed very much. It is truly hard to express in words the emptiness I will feel now whenever we have SCA gatherings. I enjoyed her personality and appreciated her kindness towards me. I admired her very much.

Paula was my friend and I will miss her. I am grateful that we were all able to travel to Scotland in 2019. I think of her as Countess Emma and a sister of the Rose, affectionately I call her Tree. We will all miss her. My condolences to her blood family and those family members by choice. Rest in peace, my friend. Countess Morgana
