Virginia Doris Bowman-Grady

July 5, 1936 — December 31, 2023



Virginia Doris Bowman-Grady was born and raised in Harriman, Tn. She grew up on her family farm just outside of town. She learned the piano and sang in high school which was one of her first passions in life. She married into the military life which took her off the farm and into travelling and meeting new people. Travelling and making friends became another passion in life, she was always the best friend one could have. During this time, she had and raised 4 sons, who would later in life give her 8 grandchildren, these grandchildren would remain one of her greatest passions in life and would become a great grandmother. Her greatest passion in life would have to be that she loved the Lord. Like all of us she was not perfect but realized you didn’t have to be to follow Jesus.
