Patsy Lee Lange Bowers passed away Saturday, October 15, surrounded by her husband and family. Patsy lived a simple life blessed with all that makes life special. She loved the Lord and trusted in Him unconditionally. She loved and cherished her children and guided them through all the adventures and challenges that childhood and adulthood had to offer. She taught them faith. She nurtured her grandchildren with absolute compassion and love. She leaves behind a proud legacy. Patsy was blessed with many amazing friends and a few so close to her the line between friend and family was indistinguishable. She loved and cherished her friends and they loved and cherished her.

She will be missed dearly by her family and friends but her family is thankful for and celebrates her full and complete life. It was a life well lived. Her place with the Lord is assured.

Her sons and sons-in-law will serve as pallbearers; honorary pallbearers will be Daniel Callahan, Ronald Callahan, David O’Donohoe and Sonny Vaiani. The family wishes to thank Pastor Douglas Guthier for his years of friendship.

Although I never met Patsy personally, she accomplished so much in her life. If she was anything like her sister, Shirley, she must have been an amazing person! May God provide comfort and sympathy to the family.
