Sylvia Loraine Jackson Bowman, of Radford, entered into the welcoming arms of God's Light on Monday, September 19, 2011. She was born Sylvia Loraine in Laurel Fork, Va., on August 8, 1923, to Forest and Sally Jackson. She was a gentle, peaceful woman who invested everything into her family's well-being. She will be missed by a family who loved her deeply. In her younger years she served as a nurse, and she literally worked her way across the United States as she saw the country; one of those jobs included working briefly as a welder for Pan Am during World War II. During her life, she and her husband were dairy farmers as well as motel and retail business owners. She lived in Carroll and Montgomery counties, the last eight years of her life in Radford. She was preceded in death by her parents; by her husband, Rush Taylor Bowman; and her daughter, Rhonda Moore. She is survived by a son and a daughter and their spouses, Danny and Brenda Bowman, of Jefferson, N.C., and Billie "B.J." and Peter Wood, of Radford, Va.; grandchildren, Jeremy Bowman, Nicole Lawson, Justin Bowman, and Elesha Joyner; and step grandson, Chris Wood; seven great-grandchildren; and five stepgreat- grandchildren. Funeral Services will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, September 22, 2011, at Vaughan- Guynn- McGrady Chapel with the Rev. Wendell Horton officiating. Burial will follow in the Laurel Fork Cemetery. The family will receive friends at the funeral home on Wednesday, September 21, 2011, from 6 until 8 p.m. Vaughan- Guynn- McGrady Chapel is serving the family.
