Violet Gail Carrier Bowers, 87, was welcomed into her Heavenly Home by her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, from her residence, on Saturday, November 26, 2022, in the loving care of her family.
Violet was born into the loving home of Alex and Bessie Carrier of Elizabethton in 1935, the last to be born among 12 wonderful brothers and sisters.
She enjoyed spending time with her family and quilting. She quilted many beautiful quilts in her time. She was also a wonderful cook and enjoyed providing the finest meals for those she loved. To know her was to love her.
Violet married the love of her life, Rev. Horace Bowers, in 1959, and together they made a house a home.
Along with her parents, Violet was preceded in death by her husband, siblings, and son-in-law, Kenneth Dunn.
Those remaining to cherish her memory include one daughter, Rowena Bowers Dunn; one son, Jonathan Bowers (William Bailey III); three grandchildren, Daniel (Tracie) Dunn, David (Jessica) Dunn, and Dianna (Nathan) Bates; and five great-grandchildren, Zachariah Dunn, Caleb Rosenbalm, Karleigh Dunn, Annabelle Bates, and Olivia Bates.
She cherished and loved all of her nieces, nephews, and extended relatives of the Carrier, Birchfield, and Bowers families.
