Obituary for Linda Carol Bowers

In Loving Memory:Obituaries June 8, 2024 - Smokey Barn News (43)Linda Carol Bowers passed into Heaven on June 2, 2024 at the age of 66. She regrets only that her abrupt departure did not afford her one last good smoke of a high-quality cigarette, and the opportunity to share that moment with her eldest son, whom she had convinced to choke one down with her for her last hurrah. Her family is certain that this was the first of many strong opinions that she took up with her Creator, who she revered, but for whom she had questions.

She was a graduate of Russellville High School class of ‘75 and later served as the matriarch of an active-duty, military family during the height of the Gulf War. In her most recent years, Carol enjoyed a simple life with friends and family, a full glass of sweet tea, a fresh moon pie, and a good murder mystery.

She was preceded in death by her parents Truby and Linda Lee, and her beloved brother, Michael Lee. She is survived by her two loving sons, Jonathan Bowers (Sara) of White House, and Matthew Bowers of Portland; her grandchildren Lucy Bowers and Evan Leftwich; her sister, Kim Rust (Frank) of Auburn, KY and her brother Kelly Lee of Lewisburg, KY; her ex-spouse and forever friend, Bobby Bowers of Springfield; her chosen family, Pat Bowers of Portland and Willie Bettner of Madison, and many nieces, nephews, and loving friends.
Carol chose to be cremated and expressed her desire to have no formal service. Celebration of life for Carol Bowers will be at White House First United Methodist Church, 3403 US-31W, White House, TN on Friday, June 14th. Visitation for loved ones from 5-7 pm with prayer and remembrance service following. at 7pm.

In Loving Memory:Obituaries June 8, 2024 - Smokey Barn News (44)Carol will be remembered for her deep intellect, her sharp wit, and her enduring love for George Carlin, who, she was certain, had it all figured out. In his words, “people who see life as anything other than pure entertainment are missing the point.” Carol, thank you for the laughter.
