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 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.
