Patricia Ann Getsinger Bowman, 58, wife of Johnny Bowman, of Abbeville, died Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at her home. She was born in Abbeville to the late Neuffer and Lois Willoughby Getsinger.
Mrs. Bowman was reared in Calhoun Falls where she attended Calhoun Falls schools. The beach was her happy place; Daytona Beach was her favorite. Time spent camping filled many relaxing vacation days.

Family was the essence of her everyday life; she loved them dearly.
