Myra Jean Bowles, 53 Jan. 7, 1961 - June 22, 2014

Myra Jean Bowles, 53, a life long Rushville resident, passed away peacefully on Sunday evening, June 22, 2014 at her home with family and friends surrounding her. Myra was born Jan. 7, 1961 in Rushville to Bill G. and Clara Jo (Woods) Orme. She was a 1979 graduate of Rushville Consolidated High School.

Myra married Doug Bowles on April 22, 2000 and he survives. She was a member of the Rushville Eagles Aire #2036 & Rushville American Legion Post #150. Myra retired in 1997 after 17 years with the Copeland Corporation.

Myra was a lover-of-life and fun! She never met a stranger and welcomed all into her home and heart. Myra had a way of making you feel special, never putting herself before anyone. Her laugh was intoxicating and always ended with a snort...she was a friend to many and will be deeply missed.

Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Doug, of Rushville; sons, Bradley Duncan of Glenwood, Keith Duncan of Rushville, Bucky and wife Jennifer Bowles and Jonny Bowles all of Rushville; sisters, Monna Jo and husband David Miller, Sally and husband John Collyer all of Rushville, Kelly and husband Kevin Disbro of Milroy; grandchildren, Keegan, Ella and Braylee Bowles. Myra is also survived by several nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and a brother, Timothy J. Orme.
