Survivors: children, Donna Weston (Doug) of St. Joseph, Missouri and Arnie Bowen (Connie) of Blue Rapids, Kansas; grandchildren, Kelly, Kim, Karey, and Jackson; several great-grandchildren; sisters, Alice Johnston, Mickey Routh, and Sandy Hulett; brothers, Joe Bowen (Alice) and Larry Bowen (Sharon); and numerous nieces and nephews.
