Devoted wife of Dr. Robert R. Bowen for 62 years.
She will be dearly missed by children Judy, David and Diane Bowen; grandchildren Cassandra McDonald, Shawna Halikas, Brendan Bowen, Julian Bowen and Sonia Battista. Winnie was predeceased by brothers Leo, Earl,
Wilson, and daughter in-law Angela Rickman. She is survived by sisters Ella Laidlaw and Evelyn Drouin. Loving aunt to many nieces and nephews.
Winnie will be missed and lovingly remembered by family, friends and neighbours.
She was an active member of Ottawa's Crystal Beach community with many seasons as a girls' softball coach. Winnie had a long-standing relationship with St. Stephen's Anglican Church, and loved giving back through many charitable efforts. Winnie and Bob enjoyed spending their time travelling the world, especially through their years in retirement. Winnie was an avid gardener, cross country skier, bowler, and would often be seen walking through the neighbourhood with Bob.
Thank you to all staff and nurses at Granite Ridge Long Term Care, who gave such excellent support and care.
