Beloved Daughter of David Jenkins Bowen (born in South Wales) and Rasmena Madsen Bowen;

Granddaughter of David Morris Bowen and Jane Jenkins Bowen (both of Wales) and of Peter Madsen (born in Denmark) and Wilhelmina Jorgenson Madsen (born in Norway);

Sister of David Cuthbert Bowen, Rosela R. Bowen, Everet M. Bowen and Morris Jenkins Bowen;

Loving Wife of Hilmer Enoch Larson, whom she married June 3, 1918, in Salt Lake County, Utah.

Soon after their marriage, Jennet and Hilmer went out to Oakland, California, where Hilmer went to work in the shipyards, as he had not been able to join the Army in WWI due to a heart problem; he was then badly injured at work and the couple returned to Utah.

Jennet and Hilmer are the parents of Vaudis Rose Larson (who would later marry John Sheldon Parker), born 26 February 1919 in Magna, Utah.

Jennet's beloved husband Hilmer passed away on 18 April 1919, less than 2 months after the birth of their daughter Vaudis.

Jennet, now a widow with an infant daughter, went to live with her parents and worked as a Bookkeeper in a Drugstore.

On 24 November, 1920, Jennet married Inar Carl Larson, the brother of her first husband Hilmer.

Jennet and Inar are the parents of two daughters, Elma Ruth Larson (who would later marry Mack Svend Jensen) and Barbara Jane Larson.

On the 29th of February, 1928, Jennet Minnie Bowen Larson died of pneumonia and influenza. She was only 31 years old.

Jennet is buried alongside her first husband, Hilmer, and they share a headstone marker.
