Had a Beautiful Smile -

Brenda Jean Bowman, age 72, of Selinsgrove, and formerly of Harrisburg, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, July 30, 2020, at the Selinsgrove Center.  Brenda was born on Wednesday, June 2, 1948, in Harrisburg to the late Richard Miller Bowman and Doris Lorraine (Schuchman) Bowman.  In addition to her parents, Brenda is preceded in death by her brother, Gerald Steven Bowman.

Brenda’s survivors include her three siblings: Larry Thomas Bowman and wife Mary of Flowery Branch, Georgia, Joanne Marie Bowman of Braselton, Georgia, Mary Beth Bowman of Braselton, Georgia; and several nieces and nephews.

Brenda was of the Lutheran faith and attended services regularly.  She especially enjoyed the hymns sung during worship.  Brenda was fond of spending time outside, particularly being taken on long walks.  She also liked afternoon naps, going shopping, and having her hair styled at the salon.  Brenda’s family and friends will greatly miss her and her beautiful smile.

All are welcome to join Brenda’s family at her viewing in person; or via video chat or telephone, on Thursday, August 13, 2020, from 12:45 p.m. until time of funeral service at 1:15 p.m., all at Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory, 37 East Main Street, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055, with Celebrant Patti Vogl officiating.  Burial will immediately follow the service in Rolling Green Cemetery in Camp Hill.

The family sends their most heartfelt thanks to everyone at the Selinsgrove Center who so lovingly cared for Brenda during her time there.
