On September 5, 1921, in Kansas City, Missouri, Empston and Helen (Crutchfield) Jones welcomed Dorance Magdalene to the Jones family. She was the second of nine children.
Dorance departed this life on October 24, 2017.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her oldest brother, Empston, her youngest brother, John Stephen, and a younger sister, Bervyn.
On September 17, 1948, Dorance married Troy A. Bowman with whom Ronald Alexander Bowman was born.  Troy and Ronnie preceded Dorance in death.
Dorance committed her life to Jesus Christ at Morning Star Baptist Church at an early age. She was educated in the Kansas City Public Schools, and she graduated from Lincoln High School at the age of fifteen.
Dorance worked ay Price’s Candy, Lullabye House, Pioneer Cap Company, Lake City Ammunition Plant, and the Armour Packing House. She held various customer service and retail positions, including the gift shop in Truman Medical Center as well as Macy’s, the Jones Store, and Dillard’s.
Dorance enjoyed reading and playing dominoes; however, she immensely loved attending Sunday School and church at First Baptist Church of Raytown, where she was a member. When it became difficult for Dorance to attend Sunday School and Church, she made it a point to watch worship service via live streaming on the web. During the week, she spent time listening to Bible Sermons by Word teaching Evangelists and Pastors.
