Joanne Bowen
Joanne J. Bowen, age 74, of Celina, Ohio went to her heavenly home on October 20, 2017.
She was born on March 20, 1943 in Rockford, Ohio to the late Joseph & Anne (Broz) Provci. On February 24, 1962, she married James Bowen, who died November 3, 1978.
She is also preceded in death by her sister and brother-in-law Norma "Sam" & Stanley Morden.
Survivors include her two daughters Kimberley & Michael Adams and Kristin & Mark Huelsman, two grandchildren Brayton Adams and Brecken Adams, and her brother Gerald Provci, all of Celina.
She was employed at the former Mersman Brothers, then worked for Celina City Schools, and Walmart in Celina. She was a member of Immaculate Conception Church, volunteer at the I. C. School cafeteria, member of the Prayer Chain, and former CCD teacher.
She enjoyed following the Cleveland Browns and Indians, as well as the Celina Bulldogs. Her greatest pleasure came from being Nana to her two grandsons, who truly were her pride and joy. She cared deeply for her family and many friends and never met a stranger.
Mass of Christian Burial will be on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at Immaculate Conception Church in Celina, with Fr. Kenneth Schnipke, C.PP. S., officiating. Burial will follow at Riverside Cemetery in Rockford.
The family will receive friends from 4-8 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2017 and 8:30-9:30 a.m. on Saturday at Lehman-Dzendzel Funeral Home in Celina.
