Leanne Bowen

BOWEN, Leanne Arkley, 69, residing in Calera (Birmingham), AL, and former long-time resident of Weirton, passed to heaven on Wednesday, July 31, 2013, from weakening effects of chronic illness.

Survived by husband James (Jim) M. Bowen; daughters, Kim Edwards, and Tracey Bowen; son, Matt Bowen; and grandchildren, Chad and Madison Underwood, Ian Edwards, and a grandson-to-be.

Leanne will be honored in memorial at Grace Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Helena, AL, at 1 p.m. on Thursday, August 1.

Leanne was soon to celebrate her 70th birthday, and her 50th wedding anniversary, so her family takes comfort in knowing Leanne will celebrate those days in our memories and in the arms of her Savior, Jesus Christ.

Longtime members at First Christian Church Weirton, Leanne’s family asks that friends and loved ones who wish to mark the day may do so with donation to the Weirton church, in lieu of flowers. May God cover us all in His grace.
