She was born on November 14, 1922, in Dorr, WV, and was the last member of the late Asa and Ethel Tomlinson Linton family. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Bowyer was preceded in death by her husband of 68 years, Marvin Bowyer; her grandson, Lloyd Bowyer; and three daughters-in-law: Catherine Sarver Bowyer, Monica Brown Bowyer, and Pam Adams Bowyer. She was also preceded by her sisters, Ruth Linton, Edith “Dutch” McClung, Grace Wickline, and Sibyl Ball and brothers, Robert and Baby Linton. Mrs. Bowyer was valedictorian of the Union High School class of 1940, where she was also a member of the school’s first girls basketball team. She cherished regular reunions with her classmates and attended every one they had. She married the love of her life on November 20, 1943 and set up housekeeping in Union, later moving to Mabscott and ultimately settling in Pineville in 1952. Mrs. Bowyer was a dedicated and active member of the Pineville Presbyterian Church and a 50-year member of the Order of the Eastern Star.

The family would like to send special thanks to the staff of Meadowbrook Acres Nursing Center in Charleston, WV and HospiceCare of WV, whose warmth and compassion have given us the strength for this end-of-life journey. The family will gather for a private service on Thursday, July 30, 2020 at noon at Groves-Mann Funeral Home in Union, WV with graveside rites at Green Hill Cemetery inUnion to follow. There will be a memorial service in Pineville at a later date, at which time the family will receive friends.
