Eloise (Ayling) Bowman



Eloise (Ayling) Bowman, 85, surrounded by her family, went to heaven to be with her son, Steve; sisters: Alma and Mary; brother, Walt; and her parents on Sunday, January 29, 2017.

She was born January 8, 1932, and graduated from Coulee Dam High School. She was Star newspaper's 2012 Volunteer of the Year. She was a member of the Grand Coulee Dam Seniors, where she managed the thrift store for many years, turning it into the success it is today.

She never met a stranger, helping anyone who needed it.

She is survived by her husband of 65 years, Ken, of Electric City; daughter Kerry (Dave) Noggles, Electric City; sons: Randy (Pam), Coulee Dam, and Don (Terri), West Richland; seven grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grand-child and five brothers and sisters.

There will be a celebration of life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you do a good deed for someone else, because that is the way she lived her life.
