  • What a wonderful human being and shining example of GOD's love and grace in the world. I can never think of the Bowling's as one but always as a couple whose light reflected on all of us who were fortunate enough to have been blessed with their presence in our lives. Cleota's loving positiveness always felt so good whether I saw her at church or at high school. She never was without a kind or encouraging word for the young people that crossed her path. While I never had the opportunity to have her in a class I always felt she had my interest in her heart whether I ran across her at church, school or at her home in Indian Hills while spending time with Glenna and Pam. My sister Jennifer Wright told me whenever I spoke to her that the Bowlings's were always asking how I was doing. I regret now that I never told her and Doyt just exactly how important and inspiring their presence was in my life. There are so few people in the world that live the life that she lived and in turn left such a powerful impact on so many lives. She will be missed. Doyt, I hope that you will always remember how blessed you have been to have had such a wonderful loving partner by your side all these years. I am saddened by her loss and am sorry that I will not be able to attend the funeral or pay my respects to the family in person. Frank Nelson FCHS 1962
