Linda Bowie Obituary

New Gloucester - Linda M. Bowie, 76, passed peacefully with family by her side, after battling a short term illness. Linda was born in Lewiston 1947, then raised in New Gloucester “not far from Thompsons Orchard in fact”, Maine. Daughter of Leona A. Pearl-Bragdon and Sydney M. Bragdon of new Gloucester Maine. 

Linda went to Gray-New Gloucester High-school and graduated in 1965. After high school Linda was employed by The Maine Pineland Institution. Few years pass, her first child Lisa M. Bowie had been born in 1970. Not long after, Linda had a second child Craig P. Bowie in 1972. Linda later found a passion for cooking when employed at New Gloucester’s local restaurant formerly known as “Mario’s” for many years. Next in life, Linda was employed for multiple insurance companies and helped many people with insurance needs. She later retired from “Varney Insurance Agency” to enjoy life with her three Grand Children Susan Bowie-Wallace, Dustin Wallace and Taylor Morrissette, She loved having weekly Wednesday dinners with her Grandchildren. Linda loved also too entertain at “The Pool”, many pool parties were had for pretty much all occasions. As time went on in her retirement she loved and adored spending quality time with her Great-Grandson Mavrick James. Being 1 year of age Mavrick brought much light to her life. Along side playing with Mavrick She was often knitting while watching football and chatting on her land-line phone with her dear nephew Corey regarding the game. 

 Linda had been known to provide Delicious baked goods, flowers from her miraculous gardens and genuine conversations for family, friends and kind people who passed by her home in New Gloucester. Between spending time with her grand children, baking, crocheting, and knitting she was also very fond of taking Breakfast adventures to grab coffee and bite to eat with her sisters Jean and Sue, she loved all four of her sisters very much. 

 After the passing of her younger sister Diane Plummer a few years back, Linda would knit many goods for those in need. 

 “My beautiful Grandmother taught me to knit and crochet as a small child. I’ve continued doing both for years, Hospice House was so kind to my sister when she was there, but I wanted to pay it forward and have been crocheting shawls for them using bright colors hoping to put a smile on the patient’s faces. I have also knit hundreds of hats that were shared with the homeless and our veterans. I Started making potholders this year. I love the different color combinations and have shared hundreds with family and friends. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I did making them.”
