Obituary for Chelsea Amanda Bowman
Chelsea Amanda Bowman, 31, went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, March 13, 2018. She was born to her loving mother and father, Susan and Darrell Bowman, on March 9, 1987 in Pensacola, FL.
Chelsea was a devoted Christian with a kind soul. She was very helpful to others, and was always reserved, observant, and quiet due to her ongoing struggle with her OCD. She had a strong fondness for all animals and was an avid collector of Swarovski Crystal figurines and Reborn Baby Dolls. Although Chelsea kept to herself, her intelligence spoke very loudly and proudly. She graduated from Pine Forest High School’s Class of 2005 with all honors. Chelsea was a very artistic soul. Where she failed to express herself with voice, she made up with words in her writing and in her drawings. Above all else, Chelsea loved nothing more than her family and her faith. She always cherished her time with her family on trips, vacations and family gatherings.
She now walks alongside the Lord with her paternal grandparents, Carmichael and Viola Bowman; maternal grandparents, Paul and Dorothy Libbey; Uncle Bobby Libbey; Cousin Robby Libbey; puppies, Abbie and Sophie; and her bird, Zoey.
Her memory lives on in the hearts of her mother and father, Susan and Darrell Bowman; brothers, Tyler Bowman, Curtis (Gina) Bowman; sister, Melissa (Lance) Oliveri; aunts, Jean Libbey, Bette (Rod) Keller, Janice (Eric) Meyermann, Margaret Libbey, Sheila Libbey, Joann Schlaffer ; uncles, Jimmy Libbey, Billy (Bonnie) Libbey, Gregg (Terri) Mudge; nieces and nephews, Cammy Oliveri, Callie Bowman, Rhys Bowman; cousins, Jimmy Libbey, Paula Stillman, Michel McNew, Heather Keller, Alyson Parrish, Erica Humbert, Angela Sarabia, Jessica Reeves, Katie Epps, Brittany Libbey, Bradley Libbey, Stephanie Boswell, Lauren Rodgers, Adam Mudge, Mallory Mudge, Kandi Davis, Keith Meyermann, Karl Meyermann; and numerous extended family.
