Obituary for Margene Ann Bowles

Pinky (Margene) Bowles was granted her angel wings and entered Heaven’s gates Sunday morning, September 23, 2018. She was born in Toledo, Ohio on September 11, 1948 to Edward and Marceil Komenda. She married the love of her life Kenny Bowles on July 10, 1999. She was a strong, devoted, hardworking mother that took great pride in all of her children. Pinky often took trips to the mountains and to her son-in-law’s cabin to spend time with her family. She enjoyed getting together with her friends for game nights, gambling and playing Euchre with the satisfaction of always beating her husband. There was not much Pinky loved more than gathering her friends and family through her and Kenny’s annual pig roasts and fish fries, allowing everyone they loved to spend time together in their own backyard. Most of all, she took great happiness in watching her grandchildren thrive and grow into strong young men and woman.

No matter who you were or where you came from, you always had a seat at Grandma’s table. She had a talent for going out of her way to make everyone feel comfortable and appreciated in her home. She had a laugh that was infectious, a smile that would turn around anyone’s day for the better, and a sparkle in her eye. The love that she projected onto the world was unconditional, endless and will always be remembered by those lucky enough to know her.

Pinky is survived by her loving husband Kenny Bowles; her children John Lawniczak (Misty Lawniczak), Julie Leggett (Eric Leggett) and Joe Lawniczak (P.J. Lawniczak); her grandchildren Jacob, Chase, Hunter, Bailey, Victoria and Riley. Also surviving her is her sister Elsene Slowinski, her many in-laws Freda and Wally Wallbaum, Lila and Jay Meadows, Randy and Michelle Bowles, Eddie and Donna Bowles, Sherri and Robert Cook, Terri Jones and Cathy Bowles, as well as countless nieces and nephews; her special friends Mary Perkins and Sharon Amsler. Pinky is preceded by her parents Edward and Marceil Komenda, her in-laws Lester and Marjorie Bowles and her brother-in-law Jimmy Bowles.
