Elizabeth A. Kane Bowden
March 09, 1919 - February 05, 2019
Betty was an avid reader and enjoyed word games and crossword puzzles. She also bowled well into her 90's and lived independently until she was 99. While bowling she attended many national bowling tournaments all over the country. Teammates were always amazed that wherever they bowled she always had friends or acquaintances in the area. She was also a big fan of the U of M women's basketball games and on her birthday in 2018, at 99 years old, was in the audience supporting their win at a championship game, along with a live interview by ABC local news. She was in her glory!
In June 2018 she received the Boston Post Cane, which is awarded to Orrington's oldest resident, an honor she shared with her father-in law and also her sister- in- law. Betty was pre-deceased by husband Wallace Bowden, granddaughter Jana Dempsey, son in law Joseph Dempsey, brothers James Kane and Francis Kane, and sister Alice Lavelle. She is survived by children, Anne Allen of Springfield, OR, Patricia Dempsey and Edward Bowden and wife Susan all of Orrington, grandchildren Jeffrey Allen, Jennifer Allen, Jillaine McElroy, Jon Dempsey, Jason Bowden and Sarah Pearson, great grandchildren Ayla Allen, Trevor and Evan Allen, Alex Sherman, Sam and Ben McElroy, Emma Dohrn, Zinnia and Jude Bowden, and Ruby and Camille Pearson, as well as nieces, nephews and very special friends Inge Scott and Lewis Allen.
