Obituary for Ruth Ellen Bowman

Ruth Ellen Bowman the youngest daughter of Lloyd & Esther (Thomas) Metzger was born March 3rd 1935 in Montgomery County OH. June 20th 1954 she was married to Karl Leroy Bowman at her parent’s home by Grandpa (Will) Thomas. They were blessed with 2 daughters & 2 sons and shared over 63 years of marriage. Most of their married life was spent on or close to the family farm in Preble County, OH.

Feeling a need of a personal savior Mother with Daddy was baptized into the Old German Baptist Brethren Church by Ross Fisher on May 18th 1955, to which she remained faithful.
Mother was an example of a life of devotion to her Maker and had a great love for her family. Being afflicted with a chronic lung condition all her life, she was anointed several times which gave her much comfort. In the presence of her loving family she answered the call of her Master, and passed to her eternal reward November 8th 2017 making her sojourn 82 years, 8 months, & 5 days.

She is survived by her loving companion, daughters, Cheryl (Gordon) Denlinger & Debra both of Eldorado, OH; sons, Michael (Janice) of Wolf Point, MT & Edwin (Sharon) of Eldorado, OH, 18 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren, 1 sister Mary Alice Bowser Peters, 7 nephews & 3 nieces.
In addition to her parents, her parents-in-laws, Orville & Bertha (Coning) Bowman, she was preceded in death by 2 grandsons, Jared & Noah Bowman; 1 granddaughter, RoseAnna Ruth Bowman; 1 brother Dennis (Leah) Metzger; 2 brothers-in-laws Richard Bowser & Lloyd Peters; and 1 sister-in-law Vivian (James) Boone.

With mother’s declining health the family accepted the assistance of Vitas Hospice of Dayton, OH to grant her request to remain in her home. We feel blessed by their loving care and support during Mother’s final days & passing.

Mother had a loving concern for all of her family and we will miss her prayers in our behalf. Our prayer is that we can finish our course and meet her above.

The family wishes to express their appreciation for all the prayers and loving support of our family, church family, neighbors, and friends thru mother’s illness and passing.
