Anna Marie Bowles

Anna Marie Bowles was born on May 13 1971 in California. Her parents were Larry and Emiko Purdom. She got her wings on July 26 2020 in Abilene, Tx. She was a true original.

A proud hippie Momma and 80’s hair metal fanatic, her fierce and unique personality made her an unstoppable force. She had the sweetest soul that shined bright in our household. She was such a strong woman who had no quit: A hard worker and fun spirit. She was full of love and shared it with many. She was also very tough, fearless, and steadfast. Making her such a memorable person.

She loved and married Michael Shane Bowles. They shared many adventures and made so many memories with each other. From impromptu road trips to surprise their son to slow dancing in the kitchen. They loved each other whole heartedly. She had a son and daughter. Tanner and Brycie Bowles. She loved them unconditionally. She made sure to instill them with a love for life and good humor. They are unbelievably lucky to have had her as their Mother. She was a guardian, teacher, and caretaker to her Grandson Jase Bowles. She loved him immensely and he was her little partner in crime. They always kept a smile on each other’s face and filled the air with laughter. She was the most incredible Mother, Grandmother, Wife, and friend. She was and will remain an unforgettable woman.
