Beverly (Cox) Bowen is enjoying unlimited refills in the Kingdom of Heaven. Beverly passed away on Feb. 20, 2018 in Naples, Fla. at the age of 75.
Beverly, known as Meme to her family, had a lively, colorful spirit. She was an avid reader with an extensive knowledge of the Bible. As a devoted grandmother, she rarely missed a game or event. During her retirement years, she traveled to six continents, collected antiques and completed her "bucket list." Her pug, Grace Belle, was her loyal companion for many years. In her younger years, Beverly was an accomplished real estate broker, equestrian, hairdresser and seamstress.
Beverly was born in Lebanon to Glen and Zelma (Burns) Cox on June 23, 1942. She graduated from Whitestown High School and the School of Cosmetology.
Beverly is preceded in death by her husband, Ralph Gayle Bowen and parents, Glen and Zelma.
