Janice F. Bowen, 75, died on Sunday, April 7, 2013, in Charlottesville, after a brief and courageous battle with cancer.
Janice was born on December 12, 1937, in Iowa City, Iowa, the daughter of Aleen Jarman and Dr. Alto Edmund Feller. Her family moved to Charlottesville in 1951, when her father joined the faculty at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.
She graduated from St. Anne's School and Hollins College. Janice was a talented artist, who painted and drew throughout her life. About eight years ago, Janice revealed a gift for poetry. Her paintings and poetry demonstrate her observant eye and ear for the inner world she understood so well. She played tennis and golf with enthusiasm and for the pure enjoyment of the game. Janice served on the boards of the Charlottesville and University Symphony Orchestra and The Second Street Gallery. She was also a docent at the University of Virginia Art Museum. Her life was grounded on her remarkable devotion to her family. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 53 years, Howell Lewis Bowen of Charlottesville; and by two children, Elizabeth W. Sheldon and her partner, Edward Kania, of Bethesda, Maryland, and Mary Lewis Meador and her husband, Daniel J. Meador Jr. of Charlottesville; four grandchildren, Taylor Lewis Sheldon and William Winthrop Sheldon of Bethesda, and Reid Elizabeth Meador and Graham Augustus Meador of Charlottesville; and a brother, Robert Jarman Feller and his wife, Linda, of Gilbert, South Carolina. She was predeceased by her parents; her brother, Dr. Thomas Feller; and her nephew, Christopher Feller.
A funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Friday, April 12, 2013, at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Ivy. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Piedmont, 675 Peter Jefferson Parkway #300, Charlottesville, VA 22911, or the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA, 3355 Berkmar Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22901.
