Carol Lynn Bowman, born on March 16,1955, in Sparta, Michigan, was 66, when she went home to be with her Lord and Savior on December 6, 2021, in her home in Wimauma, Florida, surrounded by her family.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Luella Griffin, her sisters, Jennette Griffin and Nancy Proctor, and her in-laws, John and Mary Bowman. Carol is survived by her husband, John Bowman, her daughter, Christy Crawford, her son-in-law, Kevin Crawford, her sisters, Rose (Rod) Vincent, Zelda Griffin, Sandy Griffin, and Darlene (Roger) Anderson, and twenty-four nieces and nephews.
Carol was a Christian school teacher for over twenty years, before she went on to help her husband, John, run their air conditioning business, Air Divine, which they did together for over twenty years. She was a hard-working, independent, larger-than-life person who had a strong passion for helping and loving people, especially children, and through their business and her work in a few local churches, she was able to use that passion to impact hundreds of lives in the Tampa Bay area.
She will be remembered and missed by all, but most of us will still hear her infectious laugh in our ears for years to come. If you would like to join us to celebrate her life, we will be having a Celebration of Life for her on Wednesday, December 15, 2021, at 10 AM at Wellspring Community Church, 705 9th St. SE Ruskin, Fl. 33570, with a reception to follow.
