Bowman, Gladys Love Patty (Ringgold)

Monday, July 16, 2018

Gladys Love Patty Bowman, of Ringgold, died Sunday, July 15, 2018. She was 99 years old. A member of Ringgold First Baptist Church, she was the daughter of the late Lena Love Patty and Berry Herman Patty.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband of 66 years, Joseph Carlock Bowman; grandson; Mark Joseph Hallyburton; and brothers, Arthur Patty and Howard Patty.

Survivors include her sister, Evelyn Patty Moore, of Mobile, Al.; her daughters, Patty (Vernon) Hallyburton, of Marietta, Ga. and Carol (Bob) Clark, of Chickamauga; her grandchildren, Scott (Robin) Hallyburton, of Columbia, SC, Cindy (Tim) Lewis, of Apison, Tn. and Rob (Elissa) Clark, of Madison, Al.; and her most precious great-grands, Trent Joseph and Erin Lewis, Lucy and Lindy Hallyburton and Nicholas Joseph Clark. 

Mrs. Bowman grew up in Ringgold, graduated from Ringgold High School and Edmondson School of Business in Chattanooga. She worked in civil service for several years. An assignment to Baltimore, Md., brought about a reunion with her fellow Ringgold H.S. graduate and future husband. After they were married, she created homes in more than a dozen places, from Puerto Rico to Hawaii, during her husband’s 33-year military career. They retired and returned to Ringgold in 1972. 

The family would like to give a special thank you to Mary and Martha’s Personal Care Home and Tapestry Hospice for their tender loving care.

There will be a celebration of her life at 11 a.m. Wednesday, July 18, 2018 in the funeral home chapel, with Pastor Eric Kennedy officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Ringgold First Baptist Church, 7611 Nashville St., Ringgold, Ga. 30736 or to your favorite charity.

Arrangements are by Wilson Funeral Home Wallis-Stewart Chapel Ringgold.
